I just recently bought a Betta (I had one before a year or two ago that died a month after I bought him
) so with my new Betta I want to be sure I take care of him properly, I've already started reading the many helpful topics in the forums!
I have had experience with fish before, volunteering at a fish hatchery, but obviously those fish are very different from Bettas!
I do understand that a 1 gallon tank is not ideal, but I am in college and the tank I have is convenient for travel/carrying to a friend's room for them to watch while I'm away for the weekend.
As for my Betta, his name is Merlin, he's a Spade Tail (hope that's the right classification, been looking at several sites!) He seems to like his tank, since he's been making a lot of bubbles at the surface, and I intend to add some fake plants to his tank when I get my next paycheck.
This is an amazing and very resourceful site, and I look forward to being apart of the community!
