We're an animal house :P I have a dog, two cats (One of which was a stray), a 20 gallon tank full of guppies, and my brother owns a leopard gecko. I've had 6 hamsters total (I had more than one at once :P), I had my first Betta, we used to keep goldfish, we volunteer at an animal shelter.

So they don't really mind spending money on animals :P

Some people just aren't fish people. My mom really isn't into my fish but she will come and look every once and a while. She even had a toast of white wine with me when my first betta Turtle died.

Awww :) Yeah, my mom's not really a fish person. But she doesn't really mind that much. She doesn't have much to do with them so they aren't a huge deal to her.

She likes our dog better XD

So get something for your Betta but say it's for your goldfish :P She doesn't have to know XD

My dad is the one who takes me out to get stuff and he really doesn't care how much money I spend. He's cool like that :P
