I feel like crying right now

So as some of you might know, a couple months ago my betta Cheng died. Today I decided I'd look at the bettas again and maybe buy one. My mom just told me,"I won't have another fish tank in this house. You can't get another betta unless it's in a betta cup." I am so mad. I cannot believe she said that. It just blows my mind. But then, knowing my mom, of course she did.

Why would she even say that? If you keep it in your room would she have a problem with it?

So; you had a betta for 7 years and now she decides she has a problem with it? Parents can be really awful sometimes. Ask her politely what her problem is with a fish tank.

I have before, every time she just says,"I don't want another fish tank in the house." or ,"I don't want anymore pets." Which doesn't make any sense because I do all the work for all of my pets, and when I'm gone my dad takes care of everything because he loves my animals. So she doesn't have to do anything and yet she has some huge priblem with it

That's so ridiculously pointless... "I don't want another fish tank" is not even a valid reason. Is there any chance you could talk to your dad about it? He might be able to talk to her.

:( That is unfortunate. Just remember that someday you will be 18 and free to make your own choices. :D

I feel for you. To be completely honest, no one has had a problem with my fish (I have both the money and time for all their needs, though I do occasionally ask for help feeding when I leave to help my great-grandpa), but I can see just how easily that could turn. You have my support, as one Betta Keeper to the next. I sincerely hope this goes over well for you.

thanks guys! She says maybe next year, and I guess she is right that this year is really busy, but when we go to the petstore to fill up my big fishtanks food, we'll see what'll happen...:D
