How to get your parents let you have another betta... XD

Okay, so I've got 8 bettas currently.. My dad says "no more bettas" and my mom doesn't care. I keep 6 bettas in my room, and one is in my dad's office, and the other is in the loft. I really really really want more bettas! Then if I tell my dad I wanna rescue the bettas, he says "you can't save them all, sweety.." I even told him that if he lets me have as many bettas as I want, I'll keep them all in my room, AND, I'll even pay for them. He's mainly just worried about me spilling water in my room... LOL.

SO, do any of your guys' parents do that to you? Don't you just wanna take them all home with you?!!?! :D

Gahhh I just wanna take them all home with me! I t drives me crazy when I'm at Petco with my dad and I find like 3 gorgeous bettas and my dad says no.. lol

Also, I own two shubunkin koi/goldfish ("poor man's koi") named Sushi and Sora.

Lol. My parents are different, as long as my room is clean and I can maintain the fish, I can have as many as I want,

Ah, we've all been through this. XD I know I have.

My method was to stop bugging them about fish for a while, do a few extra chores, study a bit harder, keep up a good mood. XD After a few weeks I'd talk to them about bettas again, point out what I had done- what with the extra studying and chores and whatnot- and they'd realize that and agree. :D

Whatever you choose to do, good luck! XD


In the hobby for 9 years.

Yup. As a matter of fact, I have 2 more imports coming in, and will have 1-2 more in a few days, a friend of my parents, said if I help them with some working stuff. Then he'll buy me a new import instead if paying me...... I get to learn how to drive a tractor, WOOT WOOT

My parents are the same way Mo, I can have all the fish I want unless they are sick or injured.

Open your eyes
Now is the time
To rise up
With darkness we'll still shine
