Hi ! My name is Katelynn and I am a brand new member. I am interested in meeting other members and educating myself as much as possible about Betta fish. I got a Betta for my daughter about a week ago, and we had purchased a small plastic tank for him to be in (thinking it was appropriate). Since lurking through this site I've realized a 2+ gallon tank is much more appropriate, so today we got him a 5 gallon.
Our Betta is all red with blue tips on his fins, and a bit of blue/purple colouring on his sides and belly. His name is Pete, but my daughter calls him Petey. I believe he is a crowntail, but I am not sure. Petsmart people weren't that helpful. If anyone can tell me what he is that would be appreciated. =)
By the way his tank isn't dirty, just lots of bubbles from when I got the tank ready for the first time. I have a heater in there but not a filter quite yet.
