Haha, the majority of my betta, have been impulse, or accidental fish.
what i mean by accidental is i orded 1 female crowntail from petco online, to start my breeding, ended up with 2 female CT and 2 male CT, all for free. gotta love petco.
or our most recent rescued VT from the state fair, boy hes been through a lot.
I got a new little girl today as well, saw her in the store VT red girl had to pick her up, shes almost a super red, although she has a wide chunk of her fin missing, i figured i'd rather try and rescue her then let her die in that cup.
Shes my battletorn baby xD
All in all, its become more of a lifestyle then a hobby like i planned.
i mean...not all the "betta hobbists" in the world have 6 tanks in their bedroom, 2 in their bathroom, and 3 in their living room.
But i'd also like to think of myself as a "novice" breeder, hah as if 2 breeds is enough to even claim im a novice at it.
All and all though its been nice, i love my fish, and hopefully will end up housing more, i saw my local store had 10G tanks on sale for 10$ each...i may have to snag 1...or 3. haha.
but i wouldnt consider it animal hording, cause all of my fish get insanely good care.
