Saw this thread and thought I should probably properly introduce myself, as I have been obsessing over this site for the past couple weeks while I set up a new tank in my dorm room.
I only have a 5.5g 3-betta "sorority" at the moment, but I'm really enjoying this new hobby! My girls are beautiful, but at the moment I'm a bit concerned about them getting along.
I am currently a student at the University of Kansas - I am a sophomore majoring in English Education and Creative Writing. I am from Overland Park, a suburb of Kansas City (KS side).
I am an animal lover to the extreme and these fish have just been another addition to that realm. My roommate keeps reminding me as I worry while my fish chase each other: "Anna, they're FISH, not children."
I tell her that doesn't matter much to me - I love all creatures great and small!
My real, more long-term hobbies include creative writing, piano, and KU basketball.
