Talking oops! *blushes*

ok. so i bet a bunch of you know the feeling of pleading with your parents for something fish related. so for a while mine has been a 10 gallon divided tank and to new betas. the answer was no even after all the begging and the pleading and the puppy dog eyes. so i went to petco to get some fish supply's for Fishee, and i just HAD to look at the betas and i saw him.
the he that i am applying is a grayish gold male beta (i do not yet know what tail type yet) and i just had to get him and so i "forgot" that the answer was no to anymore betas so i got him, and i splurged and got him his own 10 gallon tank with plants ,a pot , and black an white gravel. so i "accidentally" lost the receipt on the way out of the store and the tangs just disappeared. i wonder where they went? lol.anyway my parents were not that happy. but when i showed them my little baby the gave in so now i have my to be named beta. suggestions are welcome. pics soon.

Hahaha! Something similar happened to me! After Riley died, my mom said "no more bettas until your birthday!" Then I went to petsmart with my dad "just to look" at the bettas, and then I saw a BEAUTIFUL cellophane crowntail, and when he looked at me with his BIG, DARK eyes. After a few minutes of begging, my dad caved. My mom was not happy, but at least I didn't have to return him!

Haha, Ive soooo done that. After I got my Laborday a year after my first Betta, my mom said that two was good enough...but then I told her the horrible conditions of Veteran in Wal Mart, so she caved...and then told me enough was enough, no more...but two weeks later she and I both fell in love with my fourth, Christmas. And she told me once again NO MORE but hah, that wont last when I fall in love with another <3

Valentineís Day, Thanksgiving, Memorial Day, Christmas, Labor Day, Veteranís Day, St. Patrickís Day, Christmas Eve

My Parents LOVE Drax now... even heard the phrases...

Mom: "He is adorable... *See's me coming around the corner* For a fish that is..."

But if I had done that to get my tank it would have been out the window...

I had to pay for all my stuff myself... parents did help but they just said thats dipping into my Christmas gift fund... which is fine, I didn't want a new coat anyway, the one I got from 'Value Village' for 10bucks is wonderful (Mom HATES it though).

Lol I LOVE this! If I did that my mom would try to murder me so my dad would through my fish out the window...

Okay he wouldn't really throw a fish out the window. But he would sell it if I "lost" The reciept.

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows
