Yay!!! So -- this is going to be my thing. (Hey, I'm Miss Gallima)
I have settled on adopting a Betta, as my pet friend (which I never ever thought would have been my pet of choice previously), and I do plan on growing live plants in a 5 gal tank-- aquascaping will be just as fun as treating my little friend.
I am currently in college, and will be having to relocate during summer breaks, so I hope a 5 gal tank will do for now. (Although I really want a nice long 10 gal tank for my Betta friend).
After I purchase my needed supplies, I will begin putting together my aquarium, and one the nitrogen cycle is complete, I will pick a Betta for me.
I've never been so excited!!! A hobby I'm psyched about!!!! In two years, when I'm done with school and own a home, I can see myself with multiple tanks. This is good!
