Pics to come soon. I named him Mr. Red... lol Got him at PetSmart. Red VT with blue eyes. He looks young so I hope I can keep him longer than a year.

When I entered PetSmart, a mother and her young daughter were also eyeing the bettas in the cups. The little girl picked one out. I asked the mom if she had a heater for her fish, because Betta are tropical fish. She looked at me funny and informed me that she NEVER needed a heater for her bettas. I said nothing after that. I should have referred this website to her, she could learn a lot.

My Neptune died overnight. I had him 16 months. He never had a disease that I know of, and guessed that he passed from old age. I hope he's in a better place!

I'm sorry to hear about Neptune. :( But congrats on getting Mr. Red! I like that name, good choice!

A girl employee at Petsmart told me I didn't need a heater for bettas. She said there was no need for one. Perhaps this was where the woman you met got her information from as well. (Not the same store, obviously, haha, but a general employee.) It wasn't until I came online and read a few betta sites that I realized girl I talked to at Petsmart was wrong.
