hi there! i joined this forum back in september but i never did anything about it 😛 i figured i'd finally introduce myself.
i got back into the fishkeeping hobby around this time last year. i previously owned african dwarf frogs for several years but that ended badly (rip), and in college i had a betta living in poor conditions thanks to my ignorance. then there were all the fish i unintentionally murdered as a kid lol. so i decided to start my first planted!!! tank with a single betta fish. i told myself only one tank since i was recently unemployed, but i was bit by the mts bug and now i have the original 10 gallon tank, three 5 gallon tanks, and a 3+ gallon bowl, all low-tech and moderately planted. one of the 5 gallons and the bowl aren't set up yet, but they will be eventually..... i hope.
10 gallon: male double tail plakat betta, nerites
5.5 gallon: male halfmoon plakat koi betta, nerites
5 gallon tall: male halfmoon white opal betta, a nerite and two test-subject rcs (will be moving my betta to the new 5 gallon and turn this tank into an rcs tank. might add a few male tiger endlers if i can find some)
5 gallon: future home to my white opal betta (trying to give him more room to swim and hopefully he'll cut down on the incessant tail-biting)
3 gallon bowl: future home to some ghost shrimp because i love them but my bettas always eat all of them :')
i'll be going to aquashella in dallas this weekend and i am super pumped!!!
nice to meet you all! 😄
