I'm a guy and I have a Betta. Really having certain pets doesn't define masculinity in one's self.

I just like how pretty my tank looks when I come back home from work/school, and I care just stare into the tank.

@Pitgurl so true... so true xD I could totally see one of my boyfriends in the future during a fight: "I SWEAR you love those fish more than ME." lmao xD
Haha and @Micho I agree, whenever I'm stressed I drag a computer chair into my room and just stare at my bettas dancing at me:D It really does help!

Slybarman- I could so see my father on this site. But all he would want to talk about is stupid cars. Maybe you could convince him to let me get a huge tank? Lol. My parents do not like animals. If I didn't exist, there would be no animals in the house. Maybe my mom would have a cat.

Helloooooo?! They're called siamese FIGHTING fish! I'm a girl and I don't think it would be sissy like for a man to have a Betta....Your "friends" need to educate themselves on bettas. They were used in the same manner as fighting cocks (very cruel and evil by the way) in the 'Far East' but it was banned. Even though it was banned I'll bet it still goes on.

8 month - Betta -VT-male- Peach
9 month - Golden Retriever -Female- Dixie
7 year old - Cinnamon Cockatiel -Female- Ladybird
And a black mystery snail named, Bon-Bon Hoss

To do list:
1. Save money
2. Ask Parents
3. Buy all the Bettas in PetSmart.

How come girls can have monster trucks and people don't call them "masculine"? XD

I think that, in general, girls go for smaller pets that they have to nurture and protect, and men prefer pets that can pretty much handle themselves. I'm a little surprised when I hear of a guy with fish, especially really flamboyant fish like bettas, but there's nothing girly about it.
