)= My parents start yelling at me any time I even mention fish.
My dad is a little more understanding because he owns a 55g saltwater tank, but he also gets angry. I'll say, "So, the rock in my fish tank is ripping Neons fins." something as simple as that gets a, "BAYLEE, come on. Don't bother us right now. Go away, stop begging." Once I heard my mom whispering, and she asked my dad why I wasn't normal and my dad said "It's a stage." 0.0 It is most certainly NOT a "stage"
I'm lucky to go to the fish store once a week, but I can only muster that if I pester them every day about it. My parents seem to greatly dissaprove my love of fish, and when I have lots of money of my own even they don't let me spend more than $10 at a time on fish stuff...
>.< And they don't believe I have the knowlage to diagnose diseases Bettas have, like when Velvet (R.I.P.) got SBD and internal parasites I showed my dad and even though it was completely obvious he saw nothing wrong and didn't let me get medication, which resulted in death )=)=)=
I feel jealous of people whose parents love fish XD
If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows
