If your parents won't let you use your Petco card because you want another betta then you'll just have to prove that you have enough room for another and that you can care for it. However, if they won't let you use it just because they don't want you to then it isn't that fair. After all it was YOUR birthday not theirs.

I understand how you feel, I was there once. Now that I am older I understand why parents do those stupid annoying things they do.

Give it time and prove to them you are responsible enough for another pet and they might come around.

Betta:
Males - Alpha(CT), Unnamed Dragon(HMPK)
Females - Red, Green, Teal, Blue, Pina, Helena

Dragons:
Xerxes

do you parents have to drive you to Petco? if not you can just sneak a female in, it's really easy if you have a sorority to just add another girl. If they need a whole new set up them that's way harder :(
... that's horrible advice lol

Good luck, I hope they decide to let you use it :D

You just have to keep working at it to truly prove that you can have another betta. Parents do these kind of things to make sure that you aren't overwhelmed and they don't like to believe the first thing they see. It'll be complicated to convince some parents, but afterwards you'll see that it isn't so annoying. Sometimes it even gives you time to prepare for another betta.

Ahh see thats another thing. They could be trying to teach you the value of money. A new fish + setup will not only take up space, increase the power bill, and water bill... but it will also cost $100, and for a middle schooler that is quite a lot. Heck, I'm in college and I have to scrape together money to even get food ;)
