CR said something on another thread that made me think about this.. for those of us that have lots of bettas (lets say over 4)... what would you do if you had to choose 1 and give the rest away? Who would you choose?
None of that "I couldn't choose" stuff. Which one (if any) would you keep if you absolutely had to give them up. Lets say your parents are making you, or your spouse, or your dorm institued a new 1 tank only rule... something like that and you HAD to choose. Who would it be and why?
I think that would be one of the hardest decisions ever.. yet I know immediately who I would keep.
I would keep Freddie Mercury
He's my oldest fish (even though I've only had him a little over a year). The reason I would choose him is, had it not been for his tail biting I would have never started to get on forums and such. I originally got on to see what's wrong with him and came to find out I'd been taking horrid care of my fish. Because Freddie decided to bite his tail I was able to learn what I was doing wrong and fix it (and pick up a betta addiction in the process).
I would also keep him because he is by far the most low maintenance fish I have. He likes to be left alone, he likes only one weekly water change, he's happy in a small (2.5 gallon) tank. And he's got a great personality.
If Fish were still alive I would of course have chosen him but Freddie is my resident old timer grumpy man and I love him that way.
So.. who would you keep and why? (and No.. you can't pick your entire sorority.. just one fish )
