new betta owners, warning!

this goes to those who just got their first betta.
First of all, I have to sadly inform, that like most of us here..you're "infected", and remember that up till now, no complete cure have been found yet for "betta virus". Even though later you might be "cured" due to your busy daily life or anything, once u have the time and space, you'll probably "re-infected" again. You may say to yourself, "oh I'm just gonna have one, no more"..but again like most of us here..later you will always find a reason for more like "aw, he's so cute..or one more, after that no more ( and we all know this will be done repetitively LOL ). And it is known that looking at your betta regularly, or worse, browsing through this forum for other's betta pics will make the "virus incubation" period shorter, you'll soon find yourself wanting for "another color, another fin type, or maybe..wild bettas." So later, when you found yourself with more bettas than "just one" like u planned before..please remember that I have warned you about this. LOL

I didn't get infected for a long time. Got hit with goldfish flu but with a tank with a lone ghost shrimp needing a companion in my room and after I woke from the coma of awesomeness, I have 2 bettas and the want and potential for a third.
