Hello. My name is Evan and I have started to take care of a Betta. The story of how it started is interesting. I was originally supposed to take care of a family member's Betta for a few week while they went to Europe. They came back and never picked the Betta up. They decided the let me keep the Betta. I am happy to find a new hobby (that is, taking care of fish and aquariums). I am in the process of giving my Betta more substantial conditions. I have put him in a 2.5 gallon tank with a filter as opposed to the mere 1.1 gallon tank he came in that was unfiltered. I also do frequent water changes to give him better water. I am concerned for him sometimes though for reasons that belong on another forum. I am glad that I have found a community of collaboration for Bettas!
