For the sake of offering a story: this Sunday I'm going into Toronto for a family thing, and while I'm there I'll be picking up a male and a female who are being kept in the same (tiny, tiny) tank. I think I'm developing a twitch in my eye here. I mean, even if bettas weren't a species of KIND OF VERY AGGRESSIVE FISH, I don't think anyone seems to realize that, you know, if you leave a male and female anything together for any length of time, there is a possibility that you might end up with hundreds of fry.
So yes. Sunday we are driving an hour and paying $30 for two sickly fish and a barely-suitable tank. (And then by god I'm going to eat birthday cake until I explode.)
