Hello all. My name's Jonni (pronounced Johnny- i am a girl). and i've finally decided to sign up for this forum instead of my occasional lurking for tips and questions I have about my pal Bullseye.
I've been a betta owner since I was 12 with help from my mother, and i'm now 18 and keeping my own fish since I was 16.
My current little guy is Bullseye who i've had for just over a year now (picked him up in May 2013 after the loss of my 5 year old big blue boy named Bubby. He's still missed.)
I just upgraded Bullseye's tank from Bubby's old 1.5 gallon to a nice and roomy 3 gallon half-moon tank. My boy is getting big and I figure he needs some room to spread out his fins.
Bullseye is recovering from a quick catch of fin rot, I caught it early and it's mostly gone now. Bubby also had it, but I didn't know how to treat it so unfortunately his fins weren't the most attractive. He did recover after I treated it, and swam happily until he ended up dying from what I assume was old age.
his tank does need some changes. i'm looking in to new plants for him.
also, when i first bought him he was all red, hence the name Bullseye. As he grew his purple came through and that's the majority of his color now. I still like his name, though! It fits. He's full of energy and is always on the move. I love my boy.
Along with my fish I also have two rats and two kittens (going on 9 weeks old now).
Hopefully I can get to know some of you! Can't wait to see all of your lovely pets. :)
