LadyVictoria: I'm so sorry for your loss, but I'm so happy that you were able to find another fishy to love!!! I understand about the fishy thing. My grandma wasn't very excited about me getting a fish and tank, but she's been coming in to look at the tank lately. My depression has been kicking my bottom lately, so I bought my betta after my doctor told me to do something for myself for once (I'm very much a people pleaser). As my boyfriend would say, you shouldn't let what other people say bother you so much; just don't care what they say. If your fish matters to you, then that is what is important. The whys shouldn't matter, other than it just IS. Cheer up, buttercup!
