Hey there!

So, I'm new here, and quite new to betta keeping. But I just purchased my second betta fish, a black orchid with nearly classical Halfmoon fins, that was also an impulse purchase from my LFS. He is unnamed for now, but if anyone has suggestions I'd be happy to hear them! So far he has been quite happy with my 4.8 gal nano tank that I set up for him, but as it is unfiltered, I'm keeping a nearly paranoid eye on him. He loves his Anubius Nana plant and is warming up to me slowly. I'm sure that once I figure out photographs in his cylindrical tank there won't be an end to the photos I upload, so stay tuned!

Nope! Because of the way the tank is shaped and the size of the fins on the little guy I would be too worried about coming home to a stressed and exhausted fish. I'll just keep an eye out until I know the tanks need down to an art!

Black Orchid
