New betta fish aficionado, got hooked on it by my daughter who said "it's easy, just put the fish in a bowl and some plants in there." Ha ha! Did too much research and now happy betta Simon is in his own 10-gallon tank. I'm a social worker, have three almost-adult kids, live in Northern California, used to have hobbies (knitting) before I got sucked into Fishlife! Looking forward to learning more!
