  • Gosh why are they so tempting?!?!??!!?

    So I have decided that I will not buy a betta mostly for the reasons of just not supporting a business practice I don't like... but THEY ARE SO TEMPTING!

    I find myself looking at them every time I go to the store... there is always one or two that stand out to me (though I still think most look positively miserable). *I WILL NOT GET ONE I WILL NOT GET ONE*

    Reasons... while I have a tank that would be a mansion for one, but I have other plans for it. I don't want to buy a whole other tank, heater, filter for one fish, and if I was to buy another tank/heater/filter, it really should be a quarantine tank.

    Still I look... ugh!!!!

    I feel your pain. But sometimes it just happens. You look at him, he looks at you - and you're doomed. I now have 3. It seems that every time I get a quarantine tank started, I get another betta. It is a sickness that can't be controlled - thank goodness .

                    Now now Jonathan you know you love them really and as Sean said you have two

                    Bettas are amazing fish to own I have had the honour of caring for a few over the years.
                    I am very grateful we don't have bettas in cups over here I think I would turn into the hulk of I saw that.

                    One will catch your eye and wiggle their way into your heart and then you'll be doomed to MBS it's inevitable don't fight the fishy love
                    Never underestimate the power of a smile

                      I had two.... finny & pinky... oh I miss them... and I didn't even want them in the first place... I saw a half moon tail that was all white with only a little color in between its scales a couple of weeks ago...I didn't feel like paying 20 dollars for it though... BUT it haunted me and I went back BUT it was already gone :-(
                      It does not matter if you are right or wrong...
