    Planted Betta Tanks
    Hello friends! For a little background: I got the betta bug in 2011. I dwindled out of the "hobby" ( I consider it more of a lifestyle :lol: ) in 2013 when I got majorly stressed out with high school. Long story short, the stressor has dissipated, and now I'm back! I've had live plants in...

    Betta Chat
    New to this forum. Figured I'd introduce myself. My name is Amanda, and I'm not a stranger to Bettas even though it's been a while since I've had one. Each Betta-aside from Tom Selleck's Mustache here, has been a "rescue". I've gone to stores to just inspect living conditions of all fish, and on...
