Yeah.. thanks Kathstew.. your a real big bowl of help and friendliness.

I'm just going to leave then. Can't do anything without someone getting mad or someone telling me I'm a bad person.

Its bad enough at home....

So I'm going to leave and I guess if I have betta questions, people at petco are pretty friendly too.

Oh, wow. Seriously? So you're leaving because others disagreed with you and said so. Well, that's what happens when you take rules that are generally accepted on the forum (1 gallon or above, sororities need to be cycled) and then say "Yeah, I don't do them. So what?" What reaction were you expecting to get? I'm sorry that your home life is so bad, but you shouldn't even let what people say on the internet effect your self esteem so much.

Thanks! I am pretty friendly and helpful aren't I? :D
I am helpful towards people who listen. It frustrates me that you continuously didn't follow others advice, yet expect help. We can't help if you don't listen.
If you'd actually listen, I don't care if you stay.

Writing something like that makes me not want to answer you even more FYI. :/

I'm sorry if your home life is crappy, but it has nothing to do with this. Absolutely nothing. If you want a pet, you research it. You learn about it. You need to know things before getting a pet. If you don't, how do you expect it to thrive (yes it may survive, but it will not THRIVE)? I have a pretty crappy life, but I don't let interfere with something I took on because I wanted to. I didn't have to take on fish, and neither did you, but you chose to, therefore you should be taking care of it. You have the internet, you have enough resourses to learn how to take care of the fish without needing help from someone at home.

Whatever, I'm done.

I don't think anyone should tell him how to keep his own fish! It is his decision not yours. Before i learned how to keep a betta like you people do i did the same thing as philip! And guess what? My fish lived for three years! no one should tell him how to keep fish! His fish are happy and healthy and that is all that matters. You don't need all those fancy gadgets to keep a fish happy! All you need is love and look you r fish is healthy! Why do you people make every ne get all this stuff! Its burning holes in people's pockets!

Uh... this is a fish forum. It's kinda common sense; we're going to give advice. If you can't accept that, you shouldn't be on here either.

@Philipphish- You've taken a responsibility towards those fish, no matter what happens they expect you to take care of them... If you can't takes simple advice from learned people about how to give your fish the best care there is, then there are definitely some problems here... You can leave or you can stay and rise to the occassion.. People here want what's best for your bettas, they KNOW what is best! If you choose to do differently, nobody's stopping you from doing what you want.. Stay or leave.. Learn or stay in the dark..

@bettabug- I love my fish hmm.. I wonder why it died? If you give a child love but no care whatsoever, no education or place to stay, no sweater when it's cold.. How do you propose that child's life would turn out? It might live long, but will it live well?

Wow...absolutely wow...
Those "fancy gadgets" are called HEATERS. Bettas NEED temperatures of 76-80F and that is a HARD FACT. Although it may be his decision to keep fish like he does, we are giving advice on how to make it better.

"All you need is love?" I'm sorry, but if I'm locked in a closet, starving, no amount of love is going to help. That's just... wow.
