Remember some of us here are ages 15 and below. (Including me) Please don't say "I'm only...". If you can't get proper supplies, please don't get another fish. :/

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Not to be rude or anything LL, but I think they just got a fish either because you kept asking for it or just wanted to give you something to do. Your parents are behaving the same way my mom used to. I don't think they're actually going to care much for you fish. That could explain why they don't want to buy anything. And as mentioned other times, they're not cheap xD

Some people would rather buy food for themselves than buy it for a fish.

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

kay... I think King Dedede hates me, he always flares at me when I come near (or too near?) the tank

...Perhaps if you went to bed earlier... You did say you're 10, right? lol. I'm 17 & even I go to bed before 3:00...

But I agree with those above- you should be the one taking care of your bettas. I used to have rats, and when I didn't feed them, my parents wouldn't let me eat... no kidding. When they didn't have water, I couldn't have water untill I gave them some. When thier cage was dirty, I had to change it...well... actually I didn't care that much about taking showers when I was 8, so my parents grounded me to my room untill I changed the cage. That really helped me learn responsibility for my pets. I realized that they rely on me, they can't help themselves.

Best of luck with the new betta. :)

Psshhhh I'm 19, in college and may have stayed up past 3 maybe 5 times within the year and that's because of finals xD


But as for what your parents did as a punishment, id do that to my kids as well.
The situation thought is that I think LL's parents don't care for the fish. They provably prefer it as decoration over an actual pet.

Agreed. :) I was just saying that LL should take responsibility for them, regardless of the parents.

LL- I know you're 10, but do you get an allowance? or is there an opportunity for you to mow the lawn or do extra chores to earn money? Maybe you could hold a 'garage' sale, & sell some of your old toys/clothes. If your parent's saw you taking initiative, they might be more likely to help you.

my little sister always keeps me awake. also, my parents dont care about animals-- they won't even let me donate!! I try my best to support my betta in EVERY WAY I can... and here's a small story:

my betta almost died from lack of water (my sister spilled the water, on PURPOSE!) and I was rushing to find the water conditioner, I asked my mom where the water conditioner, she didn't even hurry up with the things she was doing... but my betta survived, with a few pieces of info in his revenge list, I guess... I think he hates me

*sigh*
