Hello all. We all have different journeys with our fish tanks, and we've all made mistakes along the way but the important part is to learn from them. I joined another fish keeping forum a few years ago and everyone felt a bit elitist there, so I had left. I've been scouring this community for quite some time and overall it seems to be a very relaxed, welcoming environment. Kudos.
I currently own a 20g hex and a 5 gallon tank with a Dragon Betta rescue living inside after several years of owning a 40g that unfortunately cracked (all fish rescued before the water depleted, at least). The tank was put together and I saw a sickly looking betta at a local pet store and I couldn't help myself. It seemed as though the people selling him didn't realize he was sick otherwise he would've probably just been euthanized or discarded, so I was happy to offer him a home.
However, because the hex drives me mad I will be upgrading to a 75 gallon or 90 gallon tank.
Happy to be here and happy to learn.
