I must resist the urge

I wonder why I am so addicted to Bettas. I only have one. But anytime I have a Betta fish. I can never seem to be satisfied with just one. Usually I need at least 2.

I really don't have anywhere to put another Betta fish. But I really want to get one more. I have to resist the urge...but I don't know how long I will be able to hold out for.

I started with 2 in probably February of this year, I now have 7 my sister has one and my mom has one! LOL

If you really can't resist the urge, try to hold out for the one that really calls to you.

I had the same betta for 3 years, and then he passed. I knew I needed another one because my fish tank was just not the same without a betta. I got a little guy who I named Halo from a pet store, but he was kinda "tilty"... I thought he was so beautiful though. He died within 2 days... :( A month or so later I really started getting that naggy "need a betta" feeling... I was on AB all the time, and one night went to a pet store with y boyfriend to see if I could find one I liked... I came home with 2... a few weeks later, I bought a female off AB... and now I am trying to find another male. On top of that, my boyfriend, who has never owned pets or liked fish for that matter, now wants a Black Fire betta, and a Royal Blue halfmoon. LOL I got him hooked!

This.

And I know what you mean... I think they have addictive properties once you get into properly taking care of them. I never would've gotten so into them had I not bothered to read this forum about proper care and seen my first fishy come alive as much as he did.

It took me a while to find the perfect female but I sooo did and it was soooo worth the wait for her. Find the one that makes your heart skip a beat. <3

i can usually resist the urge. but, sometimes, they get that Must Have fish. and, since i've been getting Surprise Deltas marked as Veils, it's harder. xD

I feel like one of those crazy cat ladies. Like the ones that hoards like 100 cats in her house because she just can't seem to stop at one cat.


But I do know that I really want a female betta. Gahhhh.


On another note, it seems like a lot of you have had pleasant experiences using Aquabid. I have never even heard of that place until browsing the forums here. But it seems legitimate.
