I say bay-duh (yes, a 'd' just like there is a 'd' sound in 'butter').

If I said "BEH-tuh" people would just think I was saying "better" with my Maine accent.

Ayuh, I gotta pahk the cah in the petsmaht pahkin' lot. Gotta buy a baytter fish.

I'm really not saying there's a right way and a wrong way to say it, just that the "professionals" and dictionary sites tend to call it "Bet-tuh". It doesn't really matter if it sounds dumb or not, that's just how it is. I'm not telling anyone to say it one way or another, I'm just saying that, as I said before, "professionals" seem to say it that way. I myself say "Bay-tuh" most of the time, so why would I be trashing it?

I know xD The name "Ihatebettas" is kind of a dead giveaway.

It's weird. Bettafish must be getting pretty big to have trolls. Kind of sad, too. When I joined there really wasn't enough people to warrant trolls xD Peaceful.
