(if this doesn't belong here I apologize)
I have developed a recent obsession with fish tanks, I have one that I bought for my grandfather before he passed away and it is sitting empty. I was thinking about getting a betta fish (or a few depending on how much room/money I have later on
) but I'm a little squeamish about them. You see, I really haven't had the best of luck with them. (Perhaps because they were both bought from Wal-Mart
I had one years ago (Benji), I didn't have him for very long before an ice storm hit, electricity went out and the poor baby froze. My second Betta (I don't remember if I named it or not) was knocked over by my cat (who now lives outside now). Neither of them living for more than a month or so.
I love all kinds of animals and would love to own a Betta because they are beautiful creatures, but after my recent experiences with them I'm a little afraid to.
I guess, what I'm really wondering is...any advice for a paranoid noob?
