Curse my small college dorm

I do best when taking care of something, plus I'm getting addicted to betta.

Unfortunately, I share a 10' by 10' room with another lady and there's barely enough room for two people in here, let alone a fish.

And I want to get another betta..

Someone needs to talk me out of getting another fish, in addition to my little boy. Heh.. He's my fashionably awkward little boy.

See why this is a problem?

I know its hard, betta's make great pets and friends however just think that it will be crowded and the betta should have a bare min. 1 gallon or 2 gallon the better.

It is better that have 1 very happy betta that is pampered and such than 2 bettas that hardly have space.

You have to think about what the fish want. Space to swim, but the dorm is too small to have 2 fish at once.

Keep your current betta, don't get anymore until your living quarters become bigger.

Happy fish, happy owner :)

Check your dorm rules, you might not be allowed to have 2.

Usually I go to people "Get another one!"

but for you...
I'd say, look after this one as best as you can. and if you want something to do, you can look into planted tanks. having plants will keep you obsessed with something else whilst working with the one tank instead of multiples.
