I didn't know where else to put this, I hope this is allowed! If you don't mind sparing a minute of your time, would any of you mind filling this quick survey out?

1. When did you first get interested in owning fish? When I was really young. We used to keep bettas, goldfish, tadpoles, newts, etc.


2. What made you interested in Bettas? Their personalities, and the fact that no two are the same.


3. What kind of fish do you keep? At the moment only bettas!


4. What size tanks do you keep them in? For now they all have 1 gallon tanks. Once this move eventually happens we're going to have some upgrading going on. :)


5. How many tanks do you have? 5


6. What kinds of Bettas are your favourites? Partial to VTs but after getting my newest betta I'm starting to like CT's a bit more.


7. What do you do to maintain your fish and their tanks? one 100% water change once a week, 50% 2 or 3 times a week. fed twice a day, all the attention they want at night.


8. Have you ever bred your fish? noooo no no. Not ready to be a grandma. :)


9. How much time do you spend on your fish? My schedule is based around them sometimes... It's definitely worth it to see them healthy and happy.


10. What advice would you give people who might like to start keeping fish? DO YOUR RESEARCH. It's depressing how many bettas you see in terrible conditions. Before you buy, make sure you have the time and the space for one of these guys. They say they're low maintenance but anyone on this forum will tell you otherwise!
