Since may of this year when I got my 1st betta I fell in love with the fishes, I always saw them like simple animals, but after my fish died I realized they are like part of ur family!

Oh and I got my betta in a wedding, he came in a little bowl xD

And even when he does flash, it's not for very long at all. I think, with all the bubblenests he blows, he's going to be a good daddy when I breed him. He's come such a long way from when I first got him!
its nice to hear hes recovering

Well I will like to buy a 1 gallon or 1.5 gallon tank, lets see what I do, I also loved this tank bc I can have 2 fishes at the same time:

I feel so lonely without any fishy atm :(

I'm actually going to do so later today. =]

With those 2 in one 1/2 gallons you can physically keep 2 bettas in there but they end up dying in a very short amount of time. <=[ Petstore people never tell people that! >=[ Makes me mad!

Glad you're deciding to upgrade. =] I really advise the jar though. it costs less than a 1 gallon corner kit at walmart and all you need is a heater (which you wouldn't get with the kit anyway. =P). =]

or for like $15 you could get a 3 or 5 gallon KritterKeeper/Critter Keeper.

They also only need a heater and there's lots more room for your friend to swim around, to put decorations and plants in, and for your tank to be gernerally more awesome! =]

One of the reasons I LOVE fishkeeping already is the opportunity to accessorize! XD

But you'll be able to see that better in the thread I start about my tank and about cycling tonight! =P

Oh! And sadly Alakazam died before you became a member Serox. =[

I'll be posting pictures and video of him in his memory in his thread though! =] It's titled :"Sudden Clamp!!!"

He was a BEAUTIFUL boy! =]
