Hi! New to Fishkeeping!

Hi! Im new to the whole Idea of having fish. Im hoping to learn a ton more about them and maybe even work with breeding some!

Right now ive just got one blue female betta who I JUST bought. She doesn't have a name or anything and she appears to be young. I don't know what her color is called or what type she is but I would love to learn more about her!

I promise she is more blue than she looks in this picture. I believe the table she is on is changing the color a bit. any advice on taking better pics of fish?

I just moved to college and ive always bred lambs, cows, and the odd horse and so to not have an animal to learn and expect things from is a strange feeling so I thought maybe fish would be something to give me a hobby while in college!

A little about me! Im 20, in college getting my bachelors in teaching with a minor in English. I plan to be an English teacher but I also plan to keep running the farm I have back home. I breed show sheep and am getting into show cows. I have a young beefmaster heifer who will be bred when she is old enough. I also have a commercial angus heifer who is due with her first calf in march. I also have 4 horses (one of which is pregnant with a very epensive stud) and I show horses in all kinds of shows. I also have two dogs. A border collie and a maltese who got to go to college with me!

Well, welcome to the forum! Sounds like you're really involved and care a lot about your animals. Be warned.. there is breeding and showing for Betta as well.. >.>

Do you plan on making a sorority for your female? You can keep more than one girl together. I'm not sure on her tail type, but her color will show back up once she in her nice warm home. The horizontal lines on her are showing she's stressed.

If you have any questions about anything, just ask in any of the subsections, or feel free to PM me. I always try to help. :D
