New betta owner from Canada


I'm a new fish lover from Montreal. My daughter got a 10 gallon tank for Christmas. I quickly became very upset that when she went to bed I couldn't stare at the fish anymore because the tank is in her room so I decided to get my own tank, hopefully a 20 or 30 gallon. We are hoping to move soon so my voice of reason (AKA my boyfriend) told me to wait.

All that to say that I decided to get a betta 10 days ago until I can get a bigger tank. The problem is, I have completely fallen in love with him and now I want more! He is a beautiful blue veiltail named Beetlejuice. I know he's a pretty common betta but I think he is absolutely stunning and has quite the personality.

That's about it for me, now I'm off to the betta emergency section because my little guy won't eat, I just figured I would introduce myself first

Hello and welcome to the forum

Yes, bettas are addictive LOL.

As for eating, some of them take a bit to acclimate. Just keep introducing the food and he will get the hint eventually.
