    Talking New betta fish

    Hello everyone. Meet Finn my new betta fish! I was so mad his cup was so dirty! The first picture you can kinda see the floaties in there. There were a lot. He is in a bag now getting him acclimated to the temp of his new 3 gallon tank (I wanted 5 gallon but the lady advertised it wrong and we got home and figured out it was 3 gallon) and can't wait to let him out of the bag!

    Pictures

    Your pictures are not showing up Bettas are such beautiful fish and he is going to love being out of the bag and living with you and Peppy. Be careful with Peppy and make sure you new fishes tank has a cover on top because Peppy might end up swimming in it. Boomer did and taught us to always cover everything up or he will get into it.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    Oh that must have been scary when Boomer was In the tank! Ours does have a lid on it.

    I saw your pictures on the album. I think it's cool. I never liked fish that much since I never ever had luck with them. They died really fast so I gave that up and bought a german sheppard instead lol. Sometimes pet shops doesn't even bother with dirty tanks. I honestly don't like that they put them in something that looks like a mayo jar...What the hell?! Here we have them all in big tanks in our pet shops. I do think it's crowded in there, but it's better than a small jar.

    Yeah like if you put a mirror up to them they will flare out their fins. It's kinda cool but you can't let them do it to much of it wears them out. I love betta fish. Don't know why, but I am a total animal lover. I plan to breed bettas someday.

    Re: New betta fish

    Nice! I remember I used to have a few betas, aquatic frog, then a 10 gal with different types of gold fish, sword fish, pletcos, I even caught a baby cat fish and added him as well. I remember how excited they got when they saw me. And the sound of the filter is so relaxing!
    Unfortunatly, I got a new heater at petco and that night it electrocuted all my fish. I was so mad.. I brought it back and they were like "yeah, a lot of people have been having this problem. Would you like a replacement". I had them for years. They shouldnt have been selling products they knew were broken.

    Oh my goodness, that is terrible! Sorry about your fish, shame on petco.

    Yeah, I'm trying to teach Finn tricks. Lol. He is not the only betta we have. There is a blue one named Sharkbait. Sadly he is not doing so well.
