Hello Everyone,

I would like to introduce myself and my betta's. My name is Marylyn and I have 3 betta's. Over the years I have owned many different fish and have had 10, 20 and 30 gallon tanks, but my favorite fish has always been the betta. What personalities they have and it is really amazing how they all are very different! My oldest betta I currently have is Blu Boy. He is very dark indigo blue, I don't think he is a veil tail, but I don't know what he is exactly. I have had him for a year and a half and he is very shy and laid back. For about a year now I have a female, Queenie. She is a small girl with a light background body that is blue and red. She is not especially pretty but she is very friendly and always comes up to me very quickly looking for more to eat. My latest betta is Lil'Bit. I got him after a tragic accident in March with my beautiful red crowntail, Sunfire. I bought one of those bowl heaters (I am not mentioning the brand)that are round and go under the gravel to keep the bowl warm. I had it in his bowl for maybe a month and it shorted out when I was at work. I came home to a terrible electrical smell and a dead betta. The company reinbursed me with a betta Light at my request because I did not want a replacement heater from them. However, nothing can make up for poor Sunfire dying like that. I was so very sad. Moving on, I bought Lil'Bit and named him that because he was so little. He is a beautiful double tail with red and some light aqua on his fins and tail. His new tank is a 2 1/2 gal and he was so happy to be put in that after the mini bowl he was in at the store. I put live plants in the tank and he is just lovin the betta bits food. He is growing nicely and makes a huge bubblenest. I have to restrain myself from getting more bettas right now because I spend a lot of time with my dog and I have to save time to take care of the betta's I have right now.
