Talking Definitely Addicted!

Hokay so:

I want... No. I NEED another betta!

I think I have a problem. Is there therapy for this? haha

I've got three at the moment, 2 males (apparently, just discovered one of my girls is a male PK...) and one female. What's a good number to have?

*gives high five* Welcome to the club. Soon you'll be trying to avoid pet stores like me. LOL

I don't really think anyone can tell you YOUR limit. You have to figure that out your self. I say, if you feel like you can take great care of another fish, GO FOR IT! :)

be careful if you get more unless your positive you can give the best care possible to them all. i accidently went crazy and have 8 males now and feeling a bit over whelmed and having trouble takking care of them...i wish i never got so many, it was so much easier with just 2 or 3.

Yeah my guys are a handful to start with, and I'm going to refrain from getting another one, at least until July, when I'll have my own apartment. :)

My magic number was always 4 bettas..cuz thats how many cup holders I had in my car.. lol I know that sounds awful but thats the way I transported them from college to home and vice versa. My addiction has taken over and now I have 6 and i have to use a wine bottle box to transport them in their cups.

Take on as many as you know you can handle! But bettas make a great bday gift in my opinion ;)
