This essay definietly is in exact allignment when people tell me they're just fish then I begin to tell them about how my babies and how adorable Kai is and describe their little personalities they showed me. My BFF never dared utter that phrase to me and is pretty much my fishy's aunt. She even told me she was going to kick my dad in the pants if he forgot to care for Kai and Aki correctly whilst I'm out of town. She's got a betta of her own that's quickly becoming her fish.

Haha so true! Love the poem! Some people think All you have to do is put water in a bowl and put a fish it. I HATE that! Great poem.

Color swatches? Really?

Yes, I am trying to match a tank to my decor in my room currently, but that's the DECOR OF THE TANK! Not the fish! I feel when properly arranged tanks can be gorgeous and really add to a room, but the fish are still living&breathing creatures. Not like... Gosh... Freakin' posters!!

GRAAWWW! <--angry.

The thing is that's how my parents saw it until we got everything we needed after we did all the research we did. Now we have two healthy little betta's flitting about. Akira's recovering from fin-rot and Kai is heathly and happy.

I always love it when someone changes their minds and I can "convert" them into a fishkeeper :) and yeah the woman with the swatches decided to go to a petsmart or something cause the LFS that she went to the first time, the one i go to told her she couldnt keep "colors" (aka certain fish) together.

I love it when pet stores will turn people down when they want to buy an animal when they obviously wont care for it
