Great info! I'm glad to see you put this up, because so many people buy bettas on impulse and then freak out when they find out what really is required to take care of them. I've heard several of my friends (after I explain how bettas really need to be taken care of) say "That's too much money/work/time. I don't think I'll get one." So good job on posting this!

I hate to say I was one of the impulse buyers, but thankfully I learned and shelled out the cash for my babies. :)

Guilty as charged for impulse buyer... but that goodness that we still had most of everything that I needed under my bathroom sink! All I needed was a Betta, my water additives and a hood for my 5 Gallon.
And now Pinyin has first dibs on my paychecks... hehehe

I'm an impulse buyer as well, but you know, I researched a little after I got mine, found this, did some research, and now my boys get whatever they need. =P Ahh, they are my babies. <3 :P

I was an impulse buyer myself, but unlike a lot I am 20yrs. old and have a decent paying job to afford all my pets and bills and enough to put on the side to save. But it also helps living at home. I myself have a 55 gallon, 7 gallon, a 29 gallon Leopard gecko set up, an orange tabby cat.

With the betta I did my research after returning home with him, and he is content in a 7 gallon with silk plants, decor, heater and filter. I have the time to do the correct water changes with both tanks. Also I am able to drive myself when ever needed to grab something from the pet store.

Pets take a lot of time and effort. And MONEY! Just because something is neat doesn't mean you have to waste your money on it. I know when I was young I almost wanted every pet possible, luckily my parents never gave in. I know when I was 13 my mind set was not on feeding the animals and taking care of them. It probably would slip my mind.

This is great! Good job.

I'm impulse buyer, but I almost always have an extra tank so it doesn't really matter. LOL
