I've Changed My Mind

Well.. ALOT has happened this past few days.. I decided to take a long break from bettas and couldnt stand it.. Bettas and this forum have both been a Huge part of my life. We learned about Mohs hardness scale in class and instead of listening. I tuned myself out and thought hard about fishkeeping.. n those 10 minutes I thought how I would let these few losses ruin a goal I had set for myself of winning my first ever show. I wasnt going to give up. I decided to take a new aspect of betta breeding and take a new start.. I am selling off all of my stock except the best fish and buying in more stock.. During the Summer I was flying through water changes but now Im sluggish.. With 8 hours of school and 2 hours of sports Im tired by WC time. I can barely stand it but this is a part of my life. Im starting on an even smaller scale that I can cooperate with and maintain.. Heres the stock Ive accumulated so far and this will be probably 1 fourth of my stock since im going to be breeding on a VERY small scale..

Hiya Mo :) Nice to see you back with us!

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

Welcome back :)
I think you should keep it as a side hobby since you mentioned 8 hours of school and the sports. You have beautiful fish :)
Best of luck. Try not to let it overwhelm you.
