We apparently have a genetic predisposition to this disease in my family. My father had it, I got it, & my daughter who's only two has it. I thought my kids were in the clear since my son didn't get it, but after a random trip to the pet store we came home with a betta when my daughter & I gave my husband the puppy dog eyes while looking at the bettas. She'd rather go to the fishy store than the playground!!!

Not only can it be passed to offspring, it can be passed to significant others. My husband is currently discussing the name, color, etc. of "my" next fish, although I haven't said I'm getting another fish anytime soon.

I have it. I had it many years ago...and then I had so many that it took all day just to do water changes...;)

Then I was free for several years...and then I went to Petsmart for some dogfood...and there he was... ;) From his 1 gallon the bathroom counter...to the 9 in 90 gallons of water I currently have...and it's been just over a year! ;P

I have no bathroom counterspace, I can barely move through the bathroom hallway, I had to buy a special shelf for the shower-room betta, and I've got two more tanks in the room next door...This is ridiculous! I cannot brush my teeth, shower, or do any craft projects without little eyes watching. ;)

Yeah...I stuck with the JUST ONE for about three months...then there were two...then a third...then it just got out of hand. ;) Nine and working on a sorority in a 30 gallon...that's a lot of space for a whole lot of fishy girls.... ;)

it could get worse for me if i wanted it to but i wouldnt have time for the WC. i still have 3.4-4g space and another one that may take a coffee table a possible one on clothing dresser (but no easy wall plug access) but thankfully my other sicknesses trump more aquariums.

I became infected about 1 month ago. I received an AMAZING male CT as a gift and wasn't immediately happy about it. Four weeks later I have three great boys and am wondering what else I can move or get rid of to make room for another tank!!!!
