Renewed my betta care license,

Hi everyone! My name's Chelle and I decided that I should introduce myself since I recently joined. I love to research things ahead of time and before this I have spent some time in contact with a betta breeder here in California, which is where I'm from. I have huge difficulty in getting people to understand that I don't see my 2 Bettas as 'just fish.' As well as people think dogs and cats need to be treated and spoiled I see my fish equally if not greater in need of love than my finless pets.

I keep two betta fish and both are males. Once is a black half moon double tail plakat and the other is a ... different reddish blue-ish purple-ish half moon with what seemed like a very short caudal fin at first but now it is growing! Well I've kept bettas in the past but that was when I was ignorant to keeping them and there were only veil tails and a few crown tails around and they all were red or blue.

Well I thought I would introduce myself. Great to be in a place where other people are as interested in their fighters as I am.

Welcome to the forum!!!
You WILL get addicted to Bettas. They are my favorite type of Fish.
Anyway, thank you for not thinking them as "Just fish"
Oh, and PLEASE look at the post that has something to do with petitioning about Betta Abuse and proper care in Pet stores.
Good Luck in the amazing world of Betta Keeping!!!

I like my Bettas because, as opposed to other fish that seem to just be swimming around aimlessly, when I go to look at my Betta, he comes out to look at me!

So aware of his surroundings!
