I only had one when I found this site... I just browsed for a while before I joined, but because of everyone here i now have three gorgeous bettas, as well as a few other fish, and talk about them so much my boyfriend insists he's going to buy me a 10 gallon setup so i can divide it for two bettas. He's also buying the fish for me XD We were in Petco yesterday so I could pick up some silk plants, and of course I have to look at the bettas. He picked up the prettiest one there and started exclaiming over how pretty it was, and how he was going to buy it for me XD

Diddo.

I joined this site in the beginning of summer, roughly 2-3 months ago with only one girl (after a failed sorority a while back) and now I have 5 males and 3 females..

LOL, I had to jump in here.

My first betta (or pet ever!) came as a loot bag for a party my 5 year old went to a few months ago. He came in a baggie, not even a cup and a little pouch of betta bites attached to him. No instructions even! He lived in a brandy glass for a day until I went to Petsmart looking to buy a small little betta kit and ended up coming home with a 10 gallon tank and all the trimmings. Now two + months later, my free pet has ended up costing me tons of money and time and made me an addict to the hobby. I just bought a second tank ( a wall aquarium) and sometimes I sit back and ask myself, how did this all happen? As if 4 human kids is not enough craziness!

Funny how most of us started out so innocent and naive. lol Does anyone know of a Bettaholics anonymous?

OMG that's happened to like all of us. I'm so glad that you decided on a 10g tank with all the stuff for it. ^_^ Good for you!
