Well...that's not completely true. I'm 15. When I was younger I had several bettas but they all died :-( because i didn't know how to properly care for them (I kept them in bowls, fed them tropical fish flakes, didn't have a heater,etc. You see my problems). Now I have done my research and I am fully prepared for a new betta. Now my question is, what is the best type of betta for my age? I am going to keep him/ her in a ten gallon tank with silk plants, a heater, but no filter because I can't afford that and feed him betta pellets and blood worms as treats. Any advice for me as a "first time" betta owner and some things that people never talk about that I might have to deal with? Thanks in advance!
