...help me I'm obsessed.

So, lately, I have been absolutely betta CRAZY.

My dad wouldn't let me get a cat, even though I live by myself in my own apartment. He pays for my schooling so until I can pay for my own schooling, I can't have a cat....

ANYWAY, so to fill the void of a cat, I just keep adding fish tanks...to my apartment room...

And if any of you read my post earlier, you'll find that my poor little rescue did not win his battle against SOMETHING unknown....

If this helps anyone diagnose what could have been wrong with him, when I went to bury him, all what was left of his fins and scales all fell off.....sorry if thats gruesome, there were also strange little white stringy wormie things on him, but they weren't moving. So I'm wondering if all of this was caused by a parasite. ANYWAY, I have an obsession, and even though little Rico was very dear to my heart and I'm so sad that he passed, I tried everything, I cope, by filling the void, with more bettas. And because I was so sad that he passed...I went and bought two...

Yes. Ladies and Gentleman, I AM crazy. This brings me to a count of 5 bettas.

The two newest editions, are not named. And thats why I am here.

Tonight, I got a BEAUTIFUL delta tail. First one I've owned. He's so pretty. This is him. These pictures don't show it very well, but the majority of his body is dark blue/black and his lips are BRIGHT teal.



He looks like a drag queen with the big ol fins and the blue lips. I have him in my heated 3.5 and I'm trying to rig a filter to go onto it, more about that later.

He needs a name.


And the second edition. For about 3 weeks now, I've had my eye on a tiny iridescent white baby betta. Tonight, in my sad saaaad state of mind, I finally purchased it. It is so adorably tiny. I have it in a heated 1 gallon tank FOR NOW, until he/she gets bigger, then I will upgrade him. So don't give me craziness for that. I don't have a picture of it, but if someone wants to give me suggestions for a white betta, I'll take anything at this point, because right now, its "Big Fish" and "Baby Fish" for the 2 new guys....



Don't judge. You seriously can't have just 5....erm....1 betta....

THATS what I said to my friend, and then she was like, "Who's that???" And so I decided if she didn't know, not everyone would know, and it'd get weird....

I think a little crazy in an understatement. I told my friends at college that I have 4 tanks now, and they literally thought I was insane. I'm now known as "Crazy Fish Lady", like Crazy cat lady, but with fish.

I'm not ashamed, I am studying to become an ichthyologist. I'll try to get pictures of Bibbit as soon as I can.

On another note, are there any other French Canadians out there that use old French Canadian dialect? I did when I was a kid, I still use some words (bibbit, for example) but I never had to spell them, so I'm wondering if I'm spelling his name wrong.

I have wisely substituted my betta obsession for dwarf shrimp, bc you can have more than one in each tank!

I still love my crowntail girls!

I have NO idea where to get shrimp or freshwater snails...

They don't normally sell them in Maine :[ So I just keep adding fish. If I had my hermit crab tank up here in my apartment, you bet your bottom dollar that I'd have a million crabs as well.

Oh wait, I already do.

I have 2 males in a tank, but its divided, so its okay :P
