having a betta=being girly?

Im just curious how many people here are guys? My college "friends" always comment on me having a betta fish as being girly. What's so wrong with a strong man wanting to take care of a little fish? I love animals in general, and my college dorm only allows me to have fish but my betta is keeping me happy so.........ya :D

Having bettas doesn't make you girly, lol. Though there are fewer guys on the forum than girls, I believe. As long as your fishy keeps you happy and you keep your fishy healthy, that's all that counts!

Who's a handsome fishy? You are! Yes, You are!

Pets:
Super deltatail male - Rhyder
Vt male - Prince
Ct female - Little Miss
DeT Male - Carnelion
MGHMPK - The Deadly Nadder
Combtail male - The Cisco Kid ;)
Combtail female - Nema
3 unnamed Betta Juvies
1 cory cat - unnamed so far
Rescue field spaniel - flitch
Deaf boston terrier - bubba
Kitty - leopold
lovebird - beebee
Dwarf lop bunny - cinnamon
Ferret - Goober
fiance - Tony (also a pet, ahaha)

Hey, they are fighting fish. That ain't girly? I mean, it isn't no 55 gallon Ciclid tank, but still!

Psh. When I was growing up, my dad kept clownfish and yellow tangs. He's a tough Navy guy too. I definitely don't think keeping fish makes you "girly", even bettas XD

It's a fish so brutal it has to be kept alone :D Totally metal. But in all seriousness keeping a fish in no way makes you girly. Unless being responsible for another life somehow is now a female only trait. I really missed that memo

Xochipilli - Butterfly HM Male
Ginko - White/Black Marble Delta Female :D
Agathon - White/Blue Marble SD Male

- Rice Paddy In The Sky -
Commie - Red VT Male
Blackout - Black Rosetail Male

+1 fightergirl!!!
Where I'm at is the same, girls hardly ever choose bettas as pets. It's totally a man thing ...... I was amazed when I found out that us guys are a minority in this forum. lol.

Lol, bettas can be manly! Just because they are beautiful, doesnt mean they arent tough.

Put a mirror infront of your bettas tank, and let your friends watch him flare when he sees his reflection. Thats should impress them! ;)
