I know both are very different, but I don't know which one to get. I have researched both species. I know all the basic requirements for each one. Without being too biased, which one do you think would you think I would be most happy with?
I really like both species. I'm not too crazy about the amount of waste produced by goldfish. But I'm not sure if I'm ready for the 10+ year commitment. But for a betta, I would have to get some additional supplies for it, I would have to use more electricity ( filter, heater, etc), and I know my parents will annoy me 24/7 that it's just a betta, they can live in a bowl with monthly water changes, no filter or heater.
