I feel horrible, but I was sitting with my husband at the hospital today and all I wanted to do was come home and check on my new guy!

Yes. I want to go home right now and visit them! I am a fish nerd now lol. I just started dating someone and he seems to not think I'm a total freak. Then again he hasn't seen all my tanks yet either :)

My bettas: 6 boys and 8 sorority girls
Making it my mission to have all natural planted tanks!

oh gosh i'm glad i'm not the only one, got my first Betta a month ago and i thought i was insane for wanting to spend so much time with him and my parrents are always like "he already has a house why'd you buy him a new one?" - But he's totally my baby, got 4 more hours at work till i can go home and see him :)

Lmfao! I thought about trying to get a camera system going so I could watch them when I'm not home. I'm almost positive if I called ADT and told them to check on my fish I would be reported to a psych ward.

I have my boy Peter in a 3.5 gal on my desk at work. Trouble is I spend to much time looking at him instead of my screen, thinking about how to improve his home instead of my orders, wondering why his tail won't grow back, wondering if his filter is STILL to strong, checking the thermometer, being tempted to feed him, putting things behind his tank so he'll flare at his reflection...Oh! Sorry, yes, back to work!

I'm buying a 20 gal so I can get set up at home and have fish 24/7!
