How can I resist?

So ... I'm going to my local pet store tomorrow for a few things that doesn't include a new fish. They always have pretty, irresistible lovelies on show and its going to make it that much harder for me to pass by. Especially since I'm itching to get another pretty female, fingers crossed I don't give in.

How do you guys try resist? It's nearly impossible!

I find that if I see one that I REALLY want it's better just to get it..Hee hee, sorry that's not very helpful. If I do walk away normally I keep thinking about the one I left behind. But now that I am planning a sorority I will only get girls (which helps because I have a harder time find girls I really like)

YES! I tend to put my finger up to the glass and if they swim over I instantly fell inlove, this was the case with my male EE, Elliott. He has such a cheeky personality so I'm glad I got him!

They are hard to find, the two I have now are gorgeous and I was lucky to find a opaque HMPK female who had longer fins. My friend was actually lucky enough to pick up a Cambodian female which I became extremely jealous of. I think I might try start a sorority after I finish my plans for the tanks I have now.

Good luck on your search!

This is what happens! Next I'll be rearranging furniture and sleeping on the floor while I'm surrounded by my lovely betta children. Oh gosh ... I even pictured it! Not your fault though, it's true. Once you get hooked you'll never get unhooked.

I make sure I have an escort! Not that it always works...but usually it helps.

Or I just reinforce that I just currently don't have the space at the time. Or that those who I live with will soon have me committed if they see me walking in with one more betta.

Yeah...my family does think I am crazy...

But bringing a (sane) friend does help! Now I bring someone who will force me to walk away....but normally I sneak back later and buy them anyways >.><.<

Heh, yeah I'm no good at resisting which has kind of got me in trouble financially >< Darn-it college! Always getting in the way of my fish hobby! lol

Yeah...my dad doesn't know about my 5.5 gallon nor the two babies I rescued....ummm yeah. lol

And of course if I bring someone with me I usually encourage them to buy a betta because they are my friends who also own fish, my other friends who don't care about fish won't go with me so I usually end up making my friend get one XD Even if I tell them I won't allow them to buy another Betta as per their request lol. I'm a very bad influence!

So yeah....no will power over here! Maybe I gave it to my brother....hmm

My girlfriend was with me today, I was more looking at the sorority of girls they had. << ... I saw one I liked, she swam to the glass and followed my finger. I was pouting and she said what was true,"We don't have enough room!" Which was when I told her the plan of starting a sorority. MWAHAHAHA, the girl was light blue .. I think I want to look for prettier girls and its so hard to tell what they'll be when they're young. Most of them are palakat. :c
