Betta, Betta, Betta. Of course it was a Betta. My babies are almost all bettas. Of course I do not discount my Otos but the Bettas started my love for fish and I do not suppose anyone who knows me could guess that at all. : :-*

I'm pretty sure it was a cichlid, but it may have been a guppy.

I was 10 years old, had just gotten a 10 gallon tank, and stupidly (or naively), was not aware that you can not keep oscars in that small of a tank.
The oscars were soon returned, and I started raising guppies and selling the fry to the LFS for $.25 each.

My first fish was a goldfish. I got it when I was 8 and lived till I was 10. That fish really got me inspired to keep going with my fish tanks!

The first fish I actually owned myself (at 10) - no sharing with siblings would have been tiger barbs, kois and hillaries and the ever popular Pleco ;D

Looking back, man I REALLY overfed my fish :'( !!! Experience - the greatest teacher, I suppose...

My first were black mollys when the kids were small, then many years later I started back out with Danios. Still like Danios of any kind.

I got a goldfish in a tiny container when I was like 6, died within a week, you know the story. :'( I killed quite a few fish before doing my research.

My first fish was a betta. Well, actually, I had a couple of neon tetras and some other fish when I was about three, but considering that I can hardly remember them,I consider Indra to be my first fish. Followed by K-k and Notus, then Caurus and Tua, then Deisy...
