:) that's good. I'm glad you're working on it. WallyWestIsTheBest333 is my sister, we've been sitting here re-reading this thread and we both majorly agree research is the way to go.
We're very glad you're working on it. We wish you luck with your next fish. If there are any problems be sure to pm someone who's experienced or go googlin' to find the answer.
(and sorry about my weird posts. I thought the first one didn't go through right :p not an avid forum user this is kind of new to me)

If there is a problem with your water, you might not see it in bigger tanks that have less-frequent and smaller water changes. In a tiny tank with big changes, you'd see problems develop that were buffered by the size of the larger tanks. Get your water checked professionally.

BTW, I have short-term memory problems. Keep a journal every day of what you're doing in terms of maintenance and make physical observations of your fish. If you decide to try again. I'm keeping a journal in a thread here of treating my sick tropical fish.

I saw this post from another thread. You posted it yesterday. PLEASE don't buy another until you are ready to provide a better home for it and have done the proper research.

also i am 14 and i have never caused a problem on this forum and this comment alone was kind of offensive to other young members on this forum. i am just trying to say that as an adult i understand why you say that she isnt ready, but i just think that you could have said something WAY less offensive. like maybe you should wait a little big longer before you get a betta. i dont blame you for saying that its just that it really offended me (even though you werent talking to me).

thats all i wanted to say so again sorry if i made someone mad but i had to put down my personal opinion!:l

bettalover, I understand how you might think younger members might be offended by the comment metalbetta made about Alienbetta being too young to care for a betta. I'm sure metalbetta wasn't trying to be rude. Sometimes people, whether they are young or older may not be quite ready for the responsibility of a pet.I hope no one takes offense at what I just said. Sometimes, when you're young, it's easy to get distracted by school, sports, friends or whatever and pets can sometimes get neglected, not on purpose though.
