Just a fun little story to tell:
My betta Winston was a celebration present... to myself... after I got hired at my current job. Thing is I bought him at 2 A.M. at Wal-Mart, and it was total impulse buy.
My boyfriend works the graveyard shift at a grocery store, so he came home early in the morning, saw Winston on the desk and was thoroughly confused.
For a couple of months he was not sure what to think of me owning a fish, because I payed so much attention to Winston. To him he was "just a fish". at least at the time.
So a couple of weeks ago I decided to get him two (b-e-a-utiful) blue female bettas (again at 2 A.M.... at Wal-mart... I've been getting lucky there so far.)
I let him name them both, and he named them after characters in one of his video games.
And he's finally getting it now. Bettas rule.
He still calls me obsessed, which I won't deny, but he's getting to know all 3 of their personalities, and he seems to be loving it so far.
I still do all of the cleaning and feeding though. ALL of it. Just waiting for him to offer to do it!
He brought up getting an aquarium, and more bettas, and now I'm the happiest girl in the world!
Anyway, Thought I'd share that my boyfriend is falling in love with the idea of having bettas. And it's hilarious and awesome.
