Hi all, new to this forum and it looks amazing! I've found myself googling information and hitting this site regularly with good information so I've decided to join.
I have just started fishkeeping and got some terrible advice from a pet store which led
to my betta getting fin rot (they told me he was a cold water fish like a goldfish) it was only when I noticed half his fin missing and started learning about his care that I realised I had done many things wrong. Unfortunately he recently died while being treated with fin rot (bettafix). I also didn't properly understand how to cycle an aquarium so it was just a disaster for my poor betta. However I am learning and are much wiser for the experience and a little bit addicted now, so his life wasn't in vain. I've always loved tropical aquariums so I am learning all I can now and will hopefully run a successful set up in the future.
So that is what has brought me here. I'm here to learn as much as possible before my next fish purchase.
