Guilt Over Getting Another Betta
I donít know what my problem is, but I always have massive guilt about buying another betta! Does anyone else have this problem? The first betta I owned was named Pontus. I had him for five months before he died. Around months three and four I kicked around the idea of getting another betta, but decided against it because I didnít want him to feel replaced. (I know how ridiculous that is.)
I bought my betta fish Catullus a few weeks after Pontusí death. Now my betta clock has been ticking, and I really want to get another. There are some cute orange ones at my local pet store right now! I just feel like itís irresponsible keeping two in a college dorm. I can handle it, I just worry about transporting them back home over Thanksgiving. Do you guys have any ideas on that? I was thinking of getting a 3 gallon kritter keeper to keep at home for Tully, so I donít have to bring his 5.5 gallon back. A new betta would be kept in my 2.5 gallon which I would be able to transport back and forth.
