On facebook, I've only had the guts to post about 6 pics of bettas - so not all my guys and girls. Even on instagram I try not to bombard people with pics of my bettas. I am glad i have a place like this to show off my fish babies on a regular basis!
I haven't been outright laughed at but I'm sure there are a few people that might think I'm strange for the time and energy I've put into caring for all of my fish.

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

haha my friend tells this one person: "I got a fish, two cats and a dog."
person: "whoa!"
her: "pfft, should see the girl who rents the room next to me - she's got like.... 30 bettas or something."
person: "WHOA!!"
xD I really only had 14 adults.... lol.
And, I am not the BETTER person I am the BETTA person. (pun for the win?)

I know right? what kind of camera do you use btw beautifulBetta?? My camera died, and I'd rather try going for a better camera that won't focus on the bubbles in the water

i wasn't trying to generalize all dog lovers but he'd be a tough case to crack and probably wont take much care of it. if he had one, it'll be a small tank and overdue water changes.

imo there are people who dont care much about certain fish that can be made to like them and some that cant be persuaded to do so. my brother is most likely the latter. he has yet to show any interest in betta so far.

ty Oliver, unfortunately thats from a few hours after he arrived into the 2.5g. since then blown tails and biting. his fins are either too large and heavy or simply genetics. his anal fin is as long as his body.

1st pics is from a few weeks in. second is about a week old and rather close to the current status.

"Just because I'm smarter than you, doesn't mean I feel inclined to lower myself to your level" >.> lol sorry that was the first thing that came to mind xD I had an argument with my ex (was the bf who was argumentative) about betta fish being like koi since Thailand is neighbors with China... They are not. Thailand is right next to the equator silly people...
