A big hello from poisonous Greece

Well,hello from another one betta lover.I remember the first i bought a betta...I was 12years old.NO IDEA about this creatures.I thought it was just a fish...OH NOW!Its not only JUST a fish.Now I am 33years old and I respect them,play with care,heal them,feed them,put them to sleep,say hello-goodbye,clean them,getting aggressive if someone from my family dont respect them.My daughter(4.5years old)talks to them and train them(with her finger,with a mirror).Thats all....nice to be here.I HOPE THE BEST TO ALL OF YOU!

Hehe same as me... I started out, with a Betta when I tired of my mom saying no to having pets. Ever. At all. Any kind. She left the fish alone. Actually, she grew accustomed to me having fish!! When I didn't for the little while there (Crummiest. Time. Ever.) she was surprised. Now I know a ton more, and even helped a lady today pick gentle fishies to buddy up with a gourami Fish all around are amazing - especially the quirky Betta.

Kids must have pets.To getting know what responsibility is,to see them happy-healthy and and at the same time being happy too and to understand and respect nature.I used to have a lot pets...any kind.But my dad was the one who care them the most.Now i do the same to my soul-my daughter!I will give her any pet is SPECIAL and to afford to take care of it.

Hello and welcome to the forum Great advice and philosophy for your daughter :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I agree kids should have pets... But should not be forced to take all responsibility... Know what they say! Lead by example! I'm teaching my nephew, with his Betta. Glad you're teaching a young generation too!!!
