Oh my goodness I see it already... Well maybe not on such a large scale xD I've recently gotten into Saltwater, but the Betta Bug becomes fresh as always when I have just a peek at them... Haha my sister is so mad at me because I share a room with her until my brother goes to college, and I have 3 tanks... Wait til I get my own room, good lord :D
I see it already... 10 Gal divided 3 ways, 1.5G, 3.5G.... 29 GALLON:D BAM sorority. :D

In the summer I had my hand at an outdoor spawn, after conditioning them with bloodworms and mosquito larvae. My female is fiesty, and shredded my male's fins... There was no way she was going to get submissive. I feel like that was a blessing in disguise though. It's a big commitment to breed, and I honestly don't think I was ready for it! I had the supplies, but time was an issue.
Still, props to you Mr V for being 15 and breeding successfully! That's seriously awesome!

One 70.G Cichlid Tank-2 Parrotfish, 1 Red Bay Snook, 1 Jack Dempsy, 2 Mayan Cichlids, and 1 Spotted Catfish
1.5 Gallon tank with male butterfly halfmoon-Charlie and 1 mystery snail
10 Gallon tank with female veiltale- Lulu and 2 Mystery Snails
3.5 Nano Saltwater Tank with yellow goby-Buttercup, 3 red leg cortez crabs, 2 nassarius snails, 3 hidden cup corals
One misfit jack russel-rat terrier mix-Ginger

I started with one 10 gallon and a few 16 gallon tubs... now... yikes I don't want to even count my tanks lol.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

That's awsome. I never did that with fish but when I overheard a petco employee telling some lady that a chinchilla will die if you ever touch it, I just HAD to correct her. Seeing how I own and breed them and all...But I'm not a kid. I'm 32

Hahah Mr V it just grows like wildfire! And I know I watched some of your vids on Youtube... Holy cow o.o Lol good job!

Tikibirds, why the sad face after 32? I'm pretty sure half of these people on the forum are older, and I feel like the betta bug is just now starting to effect younger kids/teens/people lol. You tell the Petco employee! Hahah Chinchillas are soo cute! That's awesome you corrected her. Even if she had seemed offended at the moment, it's a piece of information that she'll (hopefully) remember and not tell customers anymore!

Life.

I don't like getting old or the invading army of grey hairs.

All the fish we had when I was in high school never did too well so I never was interested when I was a teen. Of course my mother never had the right equipment - were talking 3 goldfish in a 2 gallon tank type of stuff.
I do remember when I was real little she had a 10G with a bunch of tropical fish but they never lasted long. No idea what kinds they were but some were small - tetras I think and one was a big cream colored one and I have NO IDEA what he was.
It's nice to see so many young people on here that have looked into the fish's care whereas many adults do not.
