I've never had one. I've had a couple that were white when I got them but they changed colors on me.

randomness.

I currently own a male betta fish, a female betta fish, two eastern painted turtles, one western painted turtle, one Chinese dwarf hamster, and a whole load of guppies.

Thank you for "saying" it right. It's annoying when people call them bait-uhs. Like WTH it's a bet-tah according to the dictionary xD

I say bet-ah, but only because I have never heard one person say it right, and arguing is pointless with these people. lol. Even the people at the pet stores say it..

You will always be my best friend, .

It is pronounced bet-tah :) I'm not sure how anyone would get bait-uh out of the word betta. Like when you say "I bet.." you don't pronounce it "I bait.." xD

I thought it was necessary. Now to fly an airplane with the correct pronunciation banner on it over unknowledgable pet stores......

I say it right in my head, but speak it wrong, since everyone else in Tennessee says bait-uh.

In England, most people call bettas Siamese fighting fish but I don't coz' it's a mouthful.

Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.
