Your friends are nuts :) I'd do back flips if my boyfriend took in a fish. But I guarantee I'd end up doing all the work :P

@indjo- Maybe its an Asian thing for men to have them lol! I think women here are so busy with not only jobs but cooking, cleaning and taking care of a family they don't have time to care for one more thing, especially a fish!

Haha but I can see the girly side of a betta, their long floaty fins in pretty colours makes them look like they are wearing frilly dresses... Hah the male bettas look more girly than the females.
But yeah if you call them "siamese fighters" instead of "bettas" it makes them seem like a mans fish.

"Your friends are nuts :) I'd do back flips if my boyfriend took in a fish. But I guarantee I'd end up doing all the work :P"
Me to!! he originally wanted to keep a betta but once I told him how to look after them he changed his mind...

I think it's kind of silly to say that a certain pet is girly or manly. There is nothing wrong with a man being gentle, kind and caring.

Do you know how many ladies on here wish their men were into bettas? Lol.....

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
