My aunt had always kept goldfish when she lived with us a long time ago when i was younger.
I was always attracted to the beauty of the fighting fish they sold in the aquarium shops here. Back then the name "Siamese fighting fish " was really appealing to me so i got myself a small puny plastic tank smaller then a shoe box that was actual meant for temporarily keeping fish and prob held less then a gallon. With no gravel/substrate,no plants, no hiding places and no filter. Fish never lasted long with me since i rarely do regular water changes and they always looked dazed sat in the bottom of the tank, lifeless.
Stopped keeping fish after that and a few years down the road my Ex (then my bF) got me into keeping betta fish again, this time with a proper set up. Now i'm still working on keeping my fish happy and alive, the current one (Sully) is doing quite well. He likes to stare at me for food though lol and always wiggles in front of the camera. I got him on "impulse" as my previous betta had died from drospy, i was actually planning to wait a week to clean out my tank before getting a new fish but i was at the pet store 3 days after Drogo passed just to look at their stock of bettas and there was Sully, the only one who gave me the best response of actually following my finger. So i guess he chose me
