That urge is a good buddy of mine. I met him about 5 years ago when my mother bought me my first Betta for my 10th birthday.. Before my fishroom was destroyed, cause still unknown, about 3 months ago I had 17 males and 14 females that were breeding stock and 12 pet bettas and 2 batches of fry.. Not including 4 20gs worth of Mollies and other fish.. Now I have 6 wonderful pet bettas, 3 of them survivors of the blowout..and all my mollies... So...your new friend urge is just now getting started. haha

Ha! Yeaaahhhh I totally caved. Bought another female off aquabid. Its very addictive so if u already have a problem, I suggest not visiting the site. You *will* see a betta you want and after your first time bidding, you *will* do it again in a short period of time. (Assuming you have the cash)... :) btw, my new female is amazing. I'm so super pumped. :D

My pets:
Celie the spoiled 8 yr old Chihuahua
Arwin the naughty Papillon puppy

No fishies for me right now... expecting a baby in June 2013!

LMAO!!!! (@ the 5 pound scrapbook)

The urge is an evil and expensive thing!!! I would say most of us have the urge to buy more (if not all of us!). If I could I would have like 50 male bettas. I have been really good lately and haven't really bought much in the last month (at least betta related).

My sorority is about to move to a 72 gallon though which means female betta buying spree! Woohoo! My 29 long is opening up though when the sorority moves. Can we say divide in half and put in 2 giants. Hello! Lol! (My husband actually suggested that. I can't argue!)

19 males all but 1 in 5 gal tanks
1 giant in a 16 bowfront
52 female sorority, 15 raspboras, 6 corydora sterbia and BN pleco in a 72 gallon

Other tanks - 135 gallon african cichlids, 48 breeder SA cichlid, 30 gallon hex goldfish, 30 gallon community fish and shrimp tank, 12 gallon hex growout

2 Chihuahuas, 2 1/2 lab 1/2 weim dogs and 2 cats
1 Husband and 1 3 year old princess

The last couple times I went to petco I've seen this amazing black dragon king who I really wanted but I keep needing to tell myself I don't have anywhere to put him.

lol I keep thinking of ideas of why I could buy him, like dividing my 48 gallon with my HM king, but I could never take space from my cichlid who I love dearly. Then I ask myself, well couldn't I just put the divider in my 2.5 until I have a place to put him, but I could never do that to my female who loves that little tank XD

I really want someone to buy him already, it's kinda sad seeing him every time I go to petco. I did tell myself if I see him starting to get sick I would buy him since he would probably be on death row at that point and keep him in my little quarantine tank that hooks on the side of my big tank(it sits in the water so it's still the same temp) until he gets better and find a place for him, even if it means giving him to a friend :)

I bought him..... lol couldn't resist because I'm giving my female to my friend and will have an open place. My female seemed to me miserable in the new aquarium, she loves my 48 but it's to dangerous for her.
