That's pretty much what I was thinking. Just people are weird I guess. I think I'm going to start ignoring people who aren't on these forums, lol

I recently got into an argument with a friend of mine over how to properly house a betta. The odd part is she's of the school of thought that bettas MUST be housed in nothing less than 5 gallons and is absolutely appalled at my betta that lives in a 2.5 gallon, filtered, heated, cycled tank.

After grilling her for a bit, I found out that she knows nothing of the nitrogen cycle, and assumes that "more water is better" and that it simply fixes everything.

I think the next person to tell me to put a mirror in my Betta's tank is gonna get hit... >.> My response to that was "How would -you- like to go through life feeling like there was someone always threatening and attacking you or breaking into your house?" She hushed pretty quickly after that...

I concur.

Actually, along the lines of the flaring, my mother recently said something about my bettas not flaring up all the time. I made her walk into my room about 10 seconds before I did. As soon as I walked in, all three bettas flared and began wiggle-dancing for food. Quinn (who is admittedly my favorite) actually blows bubbles for me when I stick my face near the tank. I don't see how other people don;t see how we can be attached to them. They're like puppies in fish suits.

Lmao, I totally agree! My Ares gives me the "Please? I'm dying of starvation, I swear!" look whenever I get close to him, and Poseidon swims up to stare right back at me. They're both so freakin cute! I don't get non fish people, lol.

I can see how people wouldn't like goldfish. But that's because I'm so use to the interaction between me and my bettas. Even my grandmother agrees that bettas have personalities. She says she was feeding my hordes of fish while I was out of town. Quinn wouldn't stop begging, so when she told him to chill out and wait, he splashed her and began sulking. She's never doubted me afterwards about my betta's antics.
