Well, I guess I should probably say hi now lol.
I'm 17, starting college soon, and I have four pets-a cat, a dog, a hamster, and a mouse (mouse is my avatar pic)
I don't have a betta fish yet, since I've only just started researching them and gather up the stuff I need. I could tell you so many things about hamsters, mice, snakes, parakeets, dogs, etc. But bettas? I'm clueless.
I was originally going to be getting a parakeet in the next month, but I changed my mind:
We found out I wouldn't be able to attend my dream college, in Hawaii, because we couldn't afford it. I had banked all my hopes on that one, and missed the deadlines for most other colleges, plus university is too expensive right now. So I'm going to have to do community college for a year or two.
Initially, I was sad about this. I was browsing online, looking at reptile/fish decor that would work for my hammy as a way to cheer me up, when I saw a surfboard decoration for fish tanks. An idea began to form-If I couldn't live on the beach, I could put one in my room ;) albeit a tiny, cheesy beach, but still.
I'd had a betta when I was younger that lived for two years and was absolutely gorgeous. So naturally, I didn't want any other kind of fish.
Thus the research began, and now here I am, boring you all with my long winded and rather pointless story :)
Anyways, I'm excited to be here, this place seems so friendly and informative!
