Another beta newbie

Just your friendly, neighborhood college student dropping in to say hello.

Since starting college, I've found myself enamored by the betta fish and had to get a little friend of my own. I have a double halfmoon (supposedly) betta named Salem for a few months now and I want to make sure that I'm being a good fish mom. I was also gifted a betta fry recently as part of a gift exchange so tips regarding young bettas would be most welcome! My previous experience comes in the form of guppies and goldfish but it's been a few years.

Regardless, I look forward to learning from you all!
