Temptation . . .

Someone suggested Aquabid.com for finding a betta with a sister. I'm not really interested in breeding bettas, but I thought it'd be cool to look.
And I'm DYING!
I found THE most gorgeous betta, and I want her. I want her SO bad. I'm considering buying her and putting her in one of my spare 1gals till I can find something more suitable. Input?

Wait until you have a suitable home, then get the fish. Just my 2 cents.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I agree with Kymmie.

Seems like the smart thing to do. :)

You're right, I know you're both right . . .
I just want her so bad!
Now would be an excellent time to exercise self-control. :) If I'm dead in the morning, please know it's because I couldn't handle it. :) Also, because of something not betta-related, I'm doing a solo for solo fest tomorrow . . . gulp.

Solo for solo fest? Explain, please.

Oh, it's for junior high school choir. As I said, totally non-betta-related, but still totally nerve-wracking. We each prepare a folk song, rehearse it for a couple of weeks, perform it in front of judges, and are rated on a scale of 1 to 5, 1 being Superior and 5 being Hang-Your-Head-In-Shame, lol.

You'll do great. Are your parents video taping the performance? If so, you must share!
Who knows? School choir this year, American Idol next year. We can say we knew you when!

Good luck with your solo! It is nerve wracking to perform in front of people but it's fun, too. I do solos at my church plus do dinner theaters at church.

Thanks you guys! I think the solo went well, and I had a lot of fun on the trip; there's a lot of my friends in choir.
Until, of course, my stupid family wrecked my whole day for me in one blow.
First off, they were snappish and grouchy at me when I didn't even do anything wrong, and second, as we passed a yard sale this morning there was a 5gal aquarium with a filter, heater, etc. I asked them to stop by and buy it for me when I was in the van, and I would pay them back. And they didn't. They didn't even forget. And now it's been sold.
Grrrrr.
