Hello from Northern California!

Hi Everyone! I've been lurking around here a while and decided to join up!

I just got my first betta fish this past weekend (as an adult, the last one I had was really my mom's when I was 10!) and have been doing tons of research on how to properly take care of him. I got him from a local Petco. Not sure if they have the best quality fish, but this is my first attempt at keeping a betta, so hopefully it goes well! He seems pretty healthy so far!

I'm not sure what his color pattern is or how old he is. He seems like he's still quite small, so my best guess is 6 months? Does anyone else have a better guess?

His official name is Darth Betta, but I actually just call him Flower. :)
