Smile Wastin' away again in bettaville...

Does anyone else spend gobs of time just watching their fishies, or thinking about their fish, or needlessly looking at bettas and fish stuff in petstore when they go to buy catlitter... Or discuss them BY NAME to people who don't own bettas and think you're crazy:)? It's Sunday and I swear i've wasted hours just watching my fish at different times today.

Post here if you're officially obsessed with bettas!

Yep......
So hard to do homework with the fish right there.
Last night I was imagining my future fish tanks (not betta, rainbowfish, but it still counts).
I feel like I have a problem. :/

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

Oh, gosh yes!

And I too am thinking about Rainbowfish!! Specifically I love the Pseudomugil signifer (Pacific Blue Eye), I'm really thinking about a tank with them and maybe some Habrosus Cories and/or Cherry Shrimp.

I do this too. I drive everyone around me crazy. All I talk about is betta. Betta betta betta. And I call my mother if one is sick and talk about it with her by name. example from several months ago, *texting* "Mom! Wanda has a white spot! omg! I have to find her medicine"

Keep yourself clean and bright, for you are the window through which you must see the world.

Does anyone else feel like water changes consume half their lives?
Go to the fish store at least twice a week?
I swear it's a sickness. :D

I LOVE my Python Water Changer! But yet, even with that it seems that I spend far too much time with water changes and at the lfs/lps. Sigh.
