Everyone seems to call me boring because I like fish! I'm telling them that they are WRONG!

I have a comment about keeping goldfish with bettas. You cant because you most likely have a too small aquarium for a goldfish. If you keep the tank warm for a betta its to warm for a goldfish and vice versa. The huge bioload of the goldfish can end up killing both fish. Lastly goldfish and bettas sometimes nip at each others fins.

Alot of people tell me that Bettas are boring and depressing. "They just lay at the bottom and never move". I tell them that that means they have never seen a properly cared for Betta.
If your Betta was boring and depressing it was because you did not take care of it. Period.

Bettas - Giovanni (HM), Burly (HMPK Giant).

My Betta are soooooo energetic and interesting. They are a real pick-up, and very VERY loveable.

It's really the eyes that get me. They aren't like goldfish or guppies, these guys can speak to you if you are willing to watch them and listen.

"You know you can keep your male and female bettas in the same tank, right?" o.o'

^ Lol. I always seemed to get asked, "You can't put your males together, right?" "Your males aren't in the same tank, right?"

Although, if we don't like people telling us how to take care of our fish, why did we join this forum?
