are you ever stressed?
so, years ago i had about 6 bettas in 2 to 3 gallon tanks. the constant water testing, frequent regular water changes, along with the daily water changes to those who were ill, ended up really stressing me out to the point where i didn't enjoy my fish anymore. most of them were pretty intense "rescues", seriously ill fish i bought to give them a good life. they were always being treated and tested. i'm not a very easily stressed out person, but it was just too much. it all just seemed like work. but because i care for my little beings, i kept on doing it of course. however, after them, i didn't have bettas for several years. i now have my one guy - yangtze, and am enjoying him very much. of course i am now tempted with getting more, because they're just like little candies aren't they?? but i know what this could lead to, so i'm being cautious. i'm not saying i won't get maybe one more, but i'm going to think it over really hard.
so, what i'd like to know is, do you guys ever get stressed and stop enjoying your fish? i know a lot of you have several, and i just wanted to know how you felt about it.
thanks so much. ^_^
