LOL, any betta you have can be brought to me. ;D But most vets don't take vets. I had the hardest time finding a vet for my old pet rat Sandy, who had to be put down from pneumonia. Stupid disease. But yes, I want to be a vet!

I want to be a vet too!
I love all animals, and am working my best to get the grades I need to be accepted into a good university, and vet school!
I started with 2 female bettas in a one gallon bowl, on advice from a pet store worker, YIKES!
Found this website, and learned ALOT. I now have seven bettas in my room (plus room for one more, LOL). Got my sister one, AND my mom one too! My dad tried AFDs but he didn't have the time for them. Needless to say, I have a bit of a betta addiction problem XD

Yay, go us wannabevets! :D
Admitting you have a problem is the first step toward success. But the next step is determining what you want that success to be! Do you want to have more, less bettas? Do you think your addiction is a major problem? Is it negatively affecting you in any way? LOL, might want to be a psychologist too. :D Or isntead of. Whichever! :) Stupid petstores and thier stupid advice. ;)

Mine all started as a kid. My mom said I would collect bugs for hours in the field near our house. Then little snakes. Then once a dying bat. It died. Then rats and mice. Years later as an adult, saving dogs. I've always loved animals and seeing these guys in tiny, nasty cups is awful. I figure I have a good job, my daughter enjoys them.....who's it hurting? People who aren't really big on animals in general will never get it.

Update:

Good news! The male guppy is no longer drained of color; he is now swimming and eating normally. This morning he still was pale and had a 'shimmy' to his swim, but now he looks recovered. Hooray! :D

tracyalexa: You and I shared the same childhood, lol! I was a triffle wicked, however... not to the animals... to my mother!

I'd catch all manner of creatures and set them loose in the house. Walking Sticks, tree frogs, Monarch butterflys... to drive my mother nuts! The funny thing is, up to ten years ago, she thought it was my sister who had been doing it! Ah, the perfect crime, tee hee hee...

I can still catch a garter snake with only a stick and make friends with it, but the frogs are a little fast for me nowdays... ;)

I saw a *cute* furry bumble bee basking on my back deck today. I tried to take pictures of it with my cell phone, but it got annoyed and flew away...
