SO my wife is the one that got me into fish. I thought they were to hard to care for, this is when we didn't no the facts. She was like babe these fish called bettas are easy and only need a small bowl. So I bought her, her first betta. Then I got bit by the betta bug. I joined the IBC and bought show stock then I wanted something I could call my own so I started making my own line. And it has just grew bigger every year.
But this is how she deals with me and my betta family. She has her own love and that's horses. We live on 5 acers so we have the room are land is agg. So we are able to have a breeding bussiness we breed bettas, sugar gliders and horses. She got a horse for her b day and one for x mas. So when she says something about spending money on the fish. I remind her of her 2,500.00 dollar horse.
Im lucky she has her own love in life so it helps keep her off my back.. Plus she loves animals like me, and I help take care of her horses when she has had a hard day. And she helps remove females from breeding tanks. She even feeds the fry live baby brine shrimp for me. She's a champ I couldn't ask for better.
They funny part is that I bought her a 2.5 aquarium filtered and heated on her night stand beside are bed. And she has a betta in it, then she will just walk in my fish room and say this is my new betta and leave with one. And give the one she had back, the problem is she comes in there and takes my prize breeding stock. I'm like babe he is my champ line breeder, and she says well I want him and she takes him lol.
