Hello to All! A co-worker moved away two years ago, and asked if I would take care of her Betta, Mardy. I always enjoyed feeding him when she was on vacation, so I said 'yes." Although I have had cats and dogs my entire life, caring for Mardy was new for me. He was quite a special individual. She had him for almost two years, and I cared for him a year and a half. Mardy passed away this past December, and I miss him quite a bit. At some point, I will be getting another Betta fish. I hope to read more on this forum and learn more about betta fish. Just wanted to say hello to all! There is a lot to learn about the amazing Betta.
