Hi connierodz. To start your own thread, first pick the section of the forum that fits your topic. If your betta is sick, for instance, click on Diseases and Emergencies. Once you have clicked on the part of the forum that you want, you will be taken to a new page. There will be a button on the upper left side of the screen that says New Thread. Click on that and you will be able to start your own thread and post your question. If you need any more help, you can PM me. :) Welcome to our forum.
