I was just talking to my cousin because she had a betta in a jar of death, and she tried to tell me that they like small spaces. I was just like "NO. That is a lie!!!"

I've learned that less is more ... the fewer bettas I have the more enjoyable they are!

I don't like using meds unless it is necessary... so I learned sometimes you HAVE to.

I just remembered one thing I learned. I learned that universities don't consider them under the same category of "animals" because they live in water. My code of conduct while I live on campus was a strict "No animals of any kinda may enter the building" and so I sent an email about having a fish. They didn't care, considered it a decoration or non-threat for breeding if it escaped.

Hahaha. I always joked that by the school's standards I could bring my bird with me then, as long as he learned how to swim!

I love the name Shiloh! My avatar is of my late Fabio. His colors were so hard to capture on camera, but I find this the most accurate. He also had tints of blue and green. He looked completely green if I used a flash.

That's interesting. My school also has a fish only rule.
One of my friends had an ADF, but he got evicted.
Kind of silly, I think. In terms of care and disturbance, a frog is just a noisy fish. It's not like he would escape and sleep in people's drawers.
The girls on campus are such wimps. I'd plant a toad in one of their dorms, but they'd probably kill it, hahaha
