Hello Everybody, YOU TOO!

just want to say hello and thanks to everyone on this site.
a little over a month ago i went to petco with my girlfriend to buy some dog food
for her mothers dog. as we were walking out, i decide to take a look at the
betta fish and this little pinkish fish caught my eye. i took a closer look and he
he was dancing around and then just stopped and what seemed like looked right
at me and just starred. before that moment i never considered buying a fish, fish
tanks etc. i didnt even know what a planted tank was let alone ever met anyone
who ever had one. so that day and the next i was thinking about that dumb fish,
i say dumb because i thought to myself why are you thinking about that dumb
fish. to make a long story short i bought the fish (laughing to myself) its been
less than one month and we've went from fish bowl, to evolve 4, and now i have
a 10 gallon penn plax radius on the way. really just want to say thanks a lot to
everyone, ive been reading this website daily, digging through the threads and
post, trying to gain as much information as possible. as i prepare to embark on the
journey of starting my very first planted tank. im sure ill have a ton of questions,
i feel like this is the right site for that, from what ive seen in the forums.
thanks again to all those who contribute to this site.
pinkman <------ and yes thats my bettas name (:

Niiice, I started my aquarium journey through betta fish too. I remember when I had a bowl, then moved up to a 1.5G, then thought a 10G was big when I got that. Soon enough, you're gonna be wanting a bigger tank. Don't let the bug bite you too hard, haha.

Yep... Been there. When my GF moved in, she brought a tank with her that had some "dumb fish" in it. I was pretty disinterested.... Then they started getting sick and the animal lover in me kicked in. Plants took over my tank (then the subsequent upgraded tank) when the first test revealed high nitrates.

Now... we don't talk about the money I spend on this tank.

Watch out, betta's are tricky. They use jedi mind tricks that make you buy more. They are trying to take over the world
