All my tanks are chest high so I can't sit to view my fish.

I want it that way.

SO relieved I'm not alone. Thank goodness I have a single in my dorm room or else there would be no desk room!

My boyfriend accepts that they are his fishy children. Ive convinced ky two closest friends to get one. They always ask me for advice. I have helped at least three acquaintances with their dorm bettas.

When my friends boyfriend and I are seperated on breaks they know they can asknme how my fish are a d I can go on for forever.

I go to Petsmart just for fun.

Over the summer my mom announced " you enjoy taking care of your fish more so than being with your family"

I just got an RA job on campus for next fall. I have to lead events. Proper care for Betta is going to be one.

I have tons of homework and I'm still innmy pj's and need to shower. What am I doing? Spent the last hour on here. :)

Post here if you're officially obsessed with bettas!
I do ALL of those things! I am totally hopeless....

Ok yesterday I was driving home from work, which is about 1.5 hours from where I live. I stopped by 3 different petsmarts on the way home and bought out all their Anubias plants. I go to the petstore more than the grocery store. Pretty sad.

It's not sad, it's normal! The rest of the world is crazy! Today I had to get some new frozen food for the minions and the moment I walked into the store I buzzed directly to the bettas. My eyes went wide. NEW SHIPMENT!!!! Woooooo!! I was like "I want this one and this one and oh this one, maybe this one and . . . . " Finally I settled on one very pretty yellow cambo CT. But you see, I was being good. There were some drop dead gorgeous fishies there.

So that makes 10. Oy, i must stop.

Congrats on your new CT Fleetfish! Today I found another Petsmart about 20min away and bought out their Anubias. So right now I'm replanting some of my tanks:) Was soooo tempted by their bettas though.
