My brain spins a million miles an hour when I'm working, usually multitasking 7 or more things. Fish, I get to focus on one task and let my brain turn off.
I find my bettas very soothing too. They're like my kids, and I like taking care of them. Whenever I get upset I'll just watch them swim. They're great.

I go in and talk to Flair all the time. I love it because he acts like he knows what I am saying and flaps his fins so fast. But I agree, they are very soothing.

I especially like watching when I'm stressed. I wish I could have one on my desk at work, but I always have servers and such moving though my cubicle, a tank would surely get broken by a careless colleague or fish killed by the morons that clean here at night.

When I ahve a long day, I talk to Fishy a lot. I ask how he's doing, I watch him beg me for food, and it makes you feel good that you own a life that loves you and depends on you to survive.

Vikki, I feel the same way you do. They're like my kids. I worried about them constantly while I was on vacation. I hated leaving them. It gives me a lot of joy taking care of them and interacting with them. I talk to mine, too! Can you tell I'm addicted? lol

Yep same here. I love the way they seem to understand me and they always come to see what I'm doing when I'm in my room. They seem so interested in what I do. And it's so cute when they beg for food. I love it. I really hope I can get another betta soon.
My boyfriend doesn't like the idea of another one lol

I know some people who think it's wierd talking to fish, but it's the same thing as talking to anything you love. I mean, people talk to there dogs, cats, birds, gerbils, hamsters, etc, the only difference with fish is that they live underwater. They still hear you and know what you are saying.

It's just there were so many of them. And I know Walmart doesn't treat them very well. So I figure, why not? So I may have pics up soon of a new guy. Gotta take the trip to walmart first though.
I'm debating on if I want a red male, or this little like half inch girl I saw. She was brown, that's the only thing I don't like.
