Thumbs up Jersey girl just flarin' her fins

Hi everyone! Just wanted to give an intro since I'm brand-new to the forum. I've been keeping bettas ever since freshman year of college, which is 7 years by now, and I get SO upset when friends tell me "I don't know why you love that thing so much... it's just a fish." Breaks my heart every time, since all my boys have had very unique personalities.

I own a male crowntail named Prince Vincenzo (see my userpic ), and yes, he's the only royalty I've ever known.

So happy I found this site, and well on my way to upgrading Vincenzo's tank in the best way possible!

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Don't worry, we've all been called loonies at some point. I know I have!!! And they're right - I am crazy when it comes to bettas.

Hello and welcome to the forum If anyone understands fish obsessions - it's us :)

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