Call me “K”-newbie, smiles & giggles… Hi All😊 I’m so excited to have found this forum… I’ve been doing research because, I want to try having a betta again… This go round, I want him to have a small community… not sure how I plan to do it but, I do know I need help… 😂, So far, I’m looking for swimmers that have commonalities… Don’t want to be a war starter, I’m all about peace, 🤣… I didn’t know they had so many that could be tank mates to a betta… Extremely happy to know this new betta (which I haven’t gotten yet) wouldn’t have to just rely on me looking at his tank, playing finger follow & talking to him or him fighting himself in the mirror for his entertainment… Well, I really wanted to make and introduction of myself & hope to learn from as many of you as possible on this new journey to my betta community…
