Do you reckon people stuff fish?

Ok, so I have totally fallen in love with my new male betta and after a few glasses of wine was wondering, would any of you preserve your bettas when they die? I can honestly say I don't think I can flush this guy if he died, it killed me flushing my VT but this newbie has just stole my heart lmao

I know, I know im weird but in my defence thats just how all the welsh are

Um, no. Not personally. Stuffed animals creep me out. But I know what you mean--it's so hard to say goodbye to them. I have a couple buried, as well.

well you could put it in a jar with some preserving stuff i think. It wouldn't look too good though, ask a taxidermist.

Interesting thought, but uh no. I think it would be kinda gross.

RIP:To all my sweet bettas swimming under the rainbow bridge. Shall miss you all.

Neat you're welsh? Cool!
Well I'd say you could but I live in Southeastern America where just about anything and everything is stuffed! XD It might be a little harder to find a taxidermist that'll stuff a fish (and a really small one at that) in Wales. =P

I'm a girl! =]
