ChoclateBetta, the people who make fun of this forum and you because of your betta fish are trying to make you feel bad.
Example: guy at school noticed I logged onto this website. "Betta fish forum? Well that's dumb." He logs onto POKEMON and I turn around and say, "Pokemon? Well that's dumb!" He looked back at me saying "it's a hobby! It's not dumb!"
Response: "bettas are MY hobby, they're not dumb."
when you turn things back around on someone making them see it he way you do, they leave you alone.
