Well if any specail days or holidays or traditions when you get presents are coming around maybe you could ask your parents for a betta for the present. I got Casper for my birthday. Lol I also got my hamster that I have been wanting forever I got him for Christmas. It also helps if you don't annoy your parents about it or they will think you are being erisponsible and won't let you. If you let them know you really want it and you will work hard for it also you show GREAT responsiblility then you will be able to get one.

Aquariums use less electricity than your TV.

Small tanks barely use any electricity at all. Tell her you'll be more careful about turning the lights off when you leave a room and that will more than offset the electricity used by a small tank! The lights aren't on 24/7 (and use very little when they do), the heater only kicks on when it's too chilly (and is also a very low power draw), and filters are VERY energy efficient. Tell her to register for this site and we'll talk her into it lol.
