Hmm well mine are all over. I have my pandas (yes i know not a betta but oh well) in my living room. Elvis was in the kitchen (rip). Roja and Reba are in bathrooms. Morado,Fishy and Bella are in my room. Everybody gets attention one way or the other! My mom likes my fish. She just doesnt wanna have to take care of them lol.
my mom doesnt hate my fish, she does think its a dumb thing to spend my money on. She said that if i'd stop buying fish and fish tanks that i'd have more money. More money is always nice but i love these little guys and their health and happiness is important to me. I think shes one of those people who would keep theirs in a small vase, so she doesnt understand why im getting tanks for my betta.......
Same here my mom is doesnt understand why I cant just have vases or those little Petstore "betta houses", shes keeps saying "they live in a little cup Im sure they wont mind a big 1/2g"
I'm a mom and I love fish.
I think having any kind of pet teaches kids responsibility and compassion towards animals, whether it's fish or a dog, etc. When I was a kid I had horses and those were a lot of responsibility.
I Have 2 betta tanks on my bedroom desk (which are completely pimped out with everything a betta needs), 2 on my dresser (which aren't as pimped :( ), and a goldfish tank downstairs next to my computer xD
