New in town

I'm Patty, and I got into having fish around when I was a sophomore in college.

It started with a blue gourami that I rescued from being flushed. Her owner was moving out of the dorms and didn't want the hassle of transporting her home.

So there I was, a new fish owner with a blue gourami in a 2 gallon tank. After doing some research, and taking advice, I got a 30 gallon tank for my new Dies, and she was with me for a year and a half.

Now I'm the proud mommy of two bettas, Bob Marley and Devin Townsend. Dies has since passed on after she decided to jump ship on me while I was in class.

But alas, I hope to learn more about these wonderful companions. :) My roomies think I'm crazy for how much I adore my fish.

Hi and welcome aboard, Patty.

It's great you rescued the fish.:D Mind you, the fish is very happy for being rescued from being flushed.:)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Welcome to this great community!!!!! :D

flushing a fish while it is still alive is one of the worst ways to "deal" with a fish. it's sad.
it is lovely how you rescued it
