I shouldn't be laughing at your plight, but that's awful! Are you and the cichlid guy talking now? I hope so!

My boyfriend is a bit like your co-workers. I do wish he were a fellow fish and aquascape fanatic. He likes my single betta Modi well enough and even talks to the little guy every now and then, but has a cow when he finds out that I have more plants coming to me in the post. Quoting him in his French accent: "euh spoil zat feesh zilly! euh cannot be serious...'ow much money you spend on 'im zis month???" His reaction to me wanting to set up a pico reef in our kitchen was priceless ("No more feesh! No more feesh! No more tanks!"). You should have seen his face.

I love Picto tanks they have no fish but can have intertabrates and plants. When you keep tanks that people have a hard time finding the fish in.

When you know more about fish than you know about what peopler like. When you are diagnosed with a mental disorder.

When you go into your local LFS and all of the employees shout "HERE COMES THE BETTA LADY!!!!" . . . at least that's what they did to me today. I was just getting cat food

And when the manager was bagging up my new VTs (yeah ... it's inevitable) she told me that I am their number one betta customer.

You start to realize you are a betta person when there is a no pets policy for apartments AND you run out to grab a tank so you have someone to talk to in the morning. AND then the fiance gets mad at "ignoring" him while im checking out my fishy or cleaning the tank. Or when he gets mad im sitting on the computer the whole time... searching bettas and tanks... muahahahahaha
