Talking Hello from Ontario! ☆

Hello everyone,
I have lurked around quite a bit, and have posted a few times, but I've never really been a member of this community.
This must change ♥

Pets have always been a staple in my life. Right now I have a domestic princess of a cat named Chance, a hampster who goes by Crunchbite, and a 10 gallon tank with a handful of female bettas.

I originally purchased my tank so I could be the 'betta rescuer!' I wanted to save all of those poor creatures stuck in cups at all the local petstores.... before getting sad that because I purchased them, they would then get restocked because of supply/demand. D<

I'm also a pushover and got convinced that I should get a BUNCH of fish, instead of the fish I really wanted... horrible salesmanship.

However, I am planning on getting a few 5.5 gallon fish tanks to finally get down to business at what I would like to have.

I am such a sucker for the blue butterfly halfmoon.
Along with that, I am loooving the red halfmoon that animallover4lyfe is putting up for adoption... but I don't have enough posts to make an offer. Well, it would be in a few weeks since I'd want to get my tank all prettied up and stable. But still! ;p

Rambling aside,
It's a pleasure to meet you all, and I hope we get to become great friends!

Welcome to the forum, I hope you soon achieve a betta army capable of world domination.
Also, must say, us Ontarians are becoming quite the force on this forum :D

taking a break from fish-keeping.

Thanks so much! ♥
Once I get a good setup, I'll definitely post some photos.

And of course, Alberta is close enough. We can totally be awesome neighbours.
I'll bring over a pie. :D

yup lol!! that's overnight shipping or whatever is the norm.. and they always suggest faster shipping. so bulk bettas is better than just getting one


Canada is crazy =D and for me... I find it almost always cold and I don't like the cold haha
