Glad to see you here! The first few days can be very stressful if you realize you dont have the right kits for them!
I dont remember my first experience too well. I think I was like 4-5 and my dad got me one as a gift because I would always fall asleep in front of his tank so he figured he would put one by my bed so I could fall asleep there a bit better. (i've never been one to fall asleep at a decent time)
Anyways, he didnt last too long. He was in a 1 gallon bowl with a couple of fake plants for him to hang out in. No heater but we lived in florida so it wasnt too much of a problem. He must have lasted a couple of months at the least. After him I fell in love with bettas though and have been keeping them on and off throughout my life.
