Hell All I am a senior with a new passion for Betta Fish. I come about this most likely because I work in a pet store as a nutritional consultant for Pro Plan. I stop each day I work to look at them and simply captured by their beauty. I will have to read your Betta Fish Care thread. My first concern is do a buy my fish at this pet store where they have been sitting for weeks on end in a tiny plastic container bored to death. Or do I go on line and purchase one from the country of origin? Some of them are on e bay I noticed. Of course I like the one that is $50. Here is a pic of Betta bowl for him when I get him.
It is 2.5 gallon.
Thanks everyone.;-)

Looks like the photo did not upload.

Hi! welcome to the world of the betta fish addicts! All but one of my bettas are pet store bettas, so I would say rescue one. especially if you are a first time betta keeper.

Welcome to the forum!

A pet store betta can make a wonderful companion! If you're worried about health, you can always look when your store gets a fresh shipment of bettas in, or just look at the cups for an active betta, as that one will most likely be healthy.

Thanks for the warm welcomes. I have made the purchase of the betta in the avatar pic. I think he is beautiful. He is 5 months old, parents from Thailand. Breeder will ship to me when my tank is ready. Just can't wait.

I keep on reading different suggestions on the frequency of water changes and the amount. The sales person at Petsmart suggested I do 50% change every 2 weeks for 5 gallons. I thought it should be every week. What are your suggestions for me?

Usually there's one right under the post of the user you want to thank for their post.

You're welcome! :D
