She doesn't want me to get another Betta. She'll let me, but she doesn't want me to.

She wants me to use my old 5 gallon hex, and only get one Betta. My dad is all for me dividing up the tank. His attitude is "If I'm not responsible for cleaning it, you can have as many fish as you want."

So how do I persuade her to let me buy two Bettas? I really like them a lot. I keep up with the upkeep (It's not like it was any different than it was for just one fish, it's big enough that I only have to do a 50% once a week with the filter).

Thank youuuu :)

Umm.... I've had a Betta before, I know what I'm doing.

And my chores extend to homework, cleaning the bathroom, and cleaning my room, and I do all that without being told....

And I already solved the problem because my dad's on my side and he said to not worry about it and just do what I want....

Haha yes. What is really frustrating is when they do that in the diseases area. The fish will have died and a person will post a few days later "Oh he will get better don't worry!". Ugh, so annoying.

I get not reading the whole thing when there's like 10 pages. If there is I usually read the first post, skip a couple pages, read another few, until I reach the last page and then I read them all.

But when there's only one page I just *facepalm* It doesn't take that long to read one page. For me, anyways.

My mom doesn't. My dad says "Hey, it's your money, screw it, I don't care what you spend it on as long as I'm not involved."

I think it is sad when people think that fish aren't worth spending money on.

That's how my mom is, but after a while she resigns herself to it and lets me do whatever :P

My dad thinks they're cool but he has to maintain our 20 gallon guppy tank so.....
