I wouldn't say I've passed the obsession so to speak, but I did give my sister and my mother bettas. I do a lot of the care for my mom's two bettas. She does seem to be entertained by the little guys. She calls one of them "Shamu" because he likes to jump for his food. When I was younger we kept bettas in tiny glass bowls every once in awhile. They wouldn't last long - of course. And they tended to just lay around (go figure). So she's a little surprised by the personalities her new friends have (when in better environment, more space, heated, etc). Not sure how my sister's guy is doing but she did say he was flaring at her a lot. haha.

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

I kind of forced the obsession on my friend, haha. I got him a 2.5 gallon tank as a birthday present, as well as food, water conditioner, gravel, a plant, and $10 for the betta himself. Except I kind of forgot to include the receipt for his tank in the package, so he went with my idea and got a betta instead of returning everything and getting a video game like he wanted to. Eight months later, that betta, a blue and white marble halfmoon boy named Bartholomew is still going strong, and the little guy has three 'brothers' named Theutburger (red veiltail), Fluffy (blue cambodian crowntail) and Flarp (multicolor delta). And the owner of 'Bartholomew and friends' also has a ten gallon community, two dwarf puffers in a 20 gallon, breeds fancy guppies, and has a package with another 2.5 gallon tank on its way from my house. >:3
