Just a thought:
I'm a heavy smoker, and I smoke in my apartment every day. So I'm curious, might the smoke affect the fish I keep in any way? I imagine it might dirty up the tanks, but I don't usually smoke around the bettas.
Any ideas?

Idea: mind your own. I'm asking about fish, not about lifestyle advice. That's why I posted to a forum about fish.

I'm an adult. I vote, pay bills, and make my own big girl choices.

It's straight. Fish advice is all I'm here for though.

I'd imagine the air quality would affect the water quality. It's even worse because bettas are air breathers. >.<

I agree with s kennedy. The Betta would have to breathe the smoke whick could cause lung problems. Try smoking only outside.

That's probably true. The smoke doesn't reach the fish room really, but just as a precaution I may start doing that. After all they have tiny little respiratory systems and probably can't handle smoke like people can.

I agree! Smoke outside if you can. I smoked marlboro reds for 10 years around my cat Bugs. Four years ago she died from lung cancer. If only, ya know? :(

Lets just stick with advice on fish. We aren't here to comment on people's lifestyles.
