A little vain when it comes to betta's

I found out that I am a little vain when I get my betta's. I got Raja since he had blue on his pink body, now that he lost it, I found out that I don't really look at him that much. Am I a bad mommy?

You will eventually accept him eventually.

It's not that you don't like the fish, you just don't like his color. Lol

I know exactly what you mean, Shaina. Both my HMs have changed considerably since I first got them. Neither is as attractive as they were, and they've both gotten lazy and less entertaining.

Considering I bought them for their looks, as well as my entertainment and amusement, I feel somehow cheated. I know it's not their fault, but it's certainly not mine.

So I feed and maintain them and admire them for what they are. And every now and again I sigh and look at old pictures and try not to resent them, or feel guilty because I do.

Thanks, User. Perspective always helps.

Fish are living creatures.

Lol, I will probably think of my kids that way until they are a few months old.

All they care is proper care. I don't care if other people think I am ugly.

I am totally that way with my male rescue. I think he is the most boring color fish on the planet. If my roommates weren't going to flush him and/or hadn't been taking terrible care of him I would have never chosen this fish. That being said, his care is just as good as my beautiful dalmatian female. I am more attached to her because I raised her up from such a tiny fry, but I wouldn't neglect him because of that. To neglect my fish would be to neglect my plants.

I would like to suggest Vita-chem to get some color back in your fish. It might help him develop his colors stronger. Or maybe not. It would be worth a try though!
