Talking Eagerly awaiting new betta!...hopefully.

So here's the story:

I want a betta. Really, REALLY badly. But, seeing as I'm only 14, the decision is ultimately up to my parents. So, I've done some extensive research and created a PowerPoint about betta ownership. I showed it to my mom and dad, and they seemed really impressed. Of course, they need to think it over, so I won't know until tomorrow if I can get one.

Anyway, please cross your fingers for me!

My pets:
-Macy, 1 year old F calico cat
-Pumpkin, 7 year old M brown tabby cat
-Hopefully a betta soon!
R.I.P.:
-Mr. Peach, comet goldfish, passed on 4/28/11

If this is your first Betta, I heard that Halfmoons (HM) or Halfmoon Plakat (HMPK) are more difficult to take care of. But, you know, get whatever you'd like best.

Fingers crossed. Good-luck!!!

My Bettas:
Sashimi: Red Veil-Tail Male, May 2nd, 2011 (R.I.P)
Leela: Blue/Green Veil-Tail Female, May 14th, 2011
Gemini: Pearl/Green/Red Delta Male, May 21st, 2011 (R.I.P)

& Unnamed 5 Bettas


Old fisherman never die, they just smell like it.

Luckily my first betta and the one I have right now I kinda was obligated to take care of it or they would put it down, har har.

But it's always lovely to get a new pet, and bettas are extremely fun! :D

I hope you get your fish :D!

That's me on the photo alright.

ya it is! thx.he is a delta tail betta. after i got him i noticed his tail had a beutiful shiny green hue to it, it looks like blue in the pic. I would reccomend a good tank(3+ gallons), heater and low flow filter. Cycle the tank if its above 5 gallons. PM me if you have any more questions..

*sulks in corner*

My parents said no. They said that "they'd have to take care of it" even though I promised I'd take care of it. Needless to say, I'm very upset with them right now. They know how responsible I am; I get straight A's at school, and I did TONS of research before I even asked for a fish. I mean, who else would make a 15-slide PowerPoint about getting a pet fish? And it's not like I was asking for money...I was going to pay for everything!! They tried to placate me by saying, "maybe over the summer," but I know from past experiences that there's about a 1% chance of that happening.

Sorry about the rant. I just needed to let off some steam.
