My First Betta

So, cruising around petsmart today to get some sponges for my ac50, i convinced my wife to look at the bettas... She has me on a "no fish" policy until april after some recent purchases, but decided she liked it. Its a male crowntail and it took looking through 50 of the little cups to find one we both liked. I've got it acclimating right now, but ill have pics up soon. BTW, she has already named it Oodle

i cant get a pic of it tonight, im not sure if its gonna die or if its just trying to adapt to my tank. it keeps hiding in the plants or by the filter. not moving a whole lot. idk, poor thing was stuck in that little cup for no telling how long. maybe it just doesnt know what to do in a world 100x as big? i guess we shall see in the morning

Haha, whoops.

He might just need time to adjust. Some need a good rest and a peaceful overnight session before they start exploring.

ive got a good feeling about this fish.. my wife walks in there every 10 minutes to check and make sure hes still alive... maybe this will get her more in to the hobby (which would mean more tanks!)

My Bar-Mitzvah was fish-themed, so to put a long story short I had possision of about 7 Beta Fish. They were a ton of fun, and I often thought they were dead too... good luck with yours!
