Back from a Betta Break!

Hello, everyone! I am back from a long break and thought I should reintroduce myself. I would occasionally log in and check everything. I lost and gained many betta fish. It is good to see this site even more popular than before. I currently own

Copper Crowntail Female
Mustard Gas Veiltail Male
Yellow Veiltail Female
Opaque Crowntail Male
Multicolor Crowntail Male
Orange Butterfly Veiltail Male

P.S. I have gone from Fake plants to live plants!

Bettas: Rose, Sophia, Addie, Ghost, Buster, Holt, Aidan, and Mercutio!
Cassandra
Just my animals: 0.2 Cornsnakes, 0.2 Bearded Dragons, 1.0 Water Dragon, 2.2 Crested Geckos, 1.0 Tiger Salamander, 0.0.1 Tadpole, 0.0.2 Red Eared Slider Turtles, 0.0.1 Map Turtle, 0.0.2 Hermit Crabs, 1.0 Hamster, 1.0 Rabbit, 0.1 Horses, 2.2 Dogs, 0.2 Cats, Chickens, Ducks, Oscar Tank, Planted Bowl, 10 Gallon, 4x 0.5 Gallon, 5 Gallon, and Planted 25 Gallon Tank....Is that it?

Welcome back. Live plants too - love them! I saw the list of your pets. You need another rabbit :)
They do better in pairs, and there are plenty out there needing homes. I have 2 rabbits myself, male/female, both spayed/neutered

Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

I know. My Rikki Tikki needs to be neutered. I was going to do it two months ago. But some things came up.

In Albuquerque, the city shelter spays/neuters all rabbits that go out, and they only cost $20. Pretty cool. Both are buns are from shelters. Can't even get a rabbit neutered for $20!

Rikki didn't come from a shelter sadly. I thought about going to a shelter after I get him fixed and let him choose a friend. Since I don't keep rats and mice anymore. I have two mice listed, but they are about 2 years old.

FYI, rabbits will usually always have a period of aggression with each other, but will bond. We had a male/female that was bonded, and the male went into (under fence) the neighbors yard. Had him for years, he had never done that - sadly, their dog killed him.

We got the female another male, and she chased him around, but now they are so sweet with each other. You do need to just be patient. Taking a rabbit to the shelter to pick out a mate, probably won't work, as he'll be scared and won't show aggression until he/she's on its own property/territory.

That is true. They also have a 30 day thing to where if were not happy, well him, we can take the rabbit back and try another buddy.
