About Yourself:I live in Southern California and am a psychotherapist. My interests include golf, poker, my 2 dogs and 2 cats, and now my fish.
I don't remember why I got my first Betta about 4 years ago, but that got me hooked on having at least one Betta nearby. In recently learning that keeping Bettas in vases is actually cruel, I was exposed to the fish/aquarium hobby, fell in love with it, and got a real tank. Now I can't keep my arm out of it or my eyes off it.

Advice:Start slowly, buy the biggest tank you can properly support (weight/dimension wise) in your home, thoroughly research the fish's wants/needs before you buy them, and consider fishless cycling as a humane option. Don't keep bettas in bowls and do keep schooling fish in *schools*.
