why do you have so many bettas? how did u get into this hobby?
so ill give the short version of how this hobby started for me..........
3 years ago i divorced after 17 years, ive since moved 3 times, gotten remarried, had a baby and gotten a job at a plant nursery. The carts I had to move at the nursery were 7' high x 4' wide and 3' long, weighing about 500lbs when the plants were watered..........i went to move one and yanked it too hard to get it to move. I pulled my shoulder out and herniated 2 discs in my neck.
so in the past 2 years ive been to over 150 physical therapies, 50 doctor appointments, multiple steroid shots in my shoulder and neck and 2 surgeries.
I find out on the 25th about my neck sugery. Replacing 2 of my discs and even MORE physical therapies. oh joy.
I was an extremely active person, was on softball, dodgeball and volleyball teams. when i wasnt doing that i was on the lake every weekend swimming and boating, hiking. I used to be a speed walker, 6 miles in an hour, 5 days a week. I used to make gothic dolls (over 400) and paintings (over 100)that I sold.
Since I can no longer do any of those activites, I needed to find a hobby I could do at home that I would enjoy that wouldnt physically hurt me.
I grew up with my parents owning a petstore. ive had just about every animal.......I figured why not fish? I have a toddler to chase, I didnt need a dog to chase too, lol
so anyways, what I THOUGHT would be a couple of fish in maybe a couple of tanks has GROWN into a fullblown obsession. LOL
so thats my story..............whats yours?
