I just got a new buddy! His name is Tsunami and he is pretty much the best fish ever! I tried to keep a betta fish when I was around 14, but I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. His name was Link (RIP), and he was a blue crowntail betta. I had much too small of a bowl, no filter, no water conditioner, most likely the wrong type of food, and I don't think I changed his water often. At least I didn't add another male betta in with him.
The point is I'm giving it another shot, now that I am 20 years old and I am knowledgeable about betta fish I'm pretty sure Tsunami will have a fighting chance! He's getting his water changed once a week,
