Talking Betta Edutainment ... to the max :D

I just had to share because what happened was too adorable. I popped into the LFS on the way home today just to look at the fishies and visit this beautiful red macaw that lives there.

I steered towards the bettas and it wasn't five minutes when two little girls came up and told me that THEY had a betta, a red one just like that one. There were many red VTs for sale so I wasn't sure which one they meant. I'm sure it was the one I eventually took home though (pics soon!).

They became very chatty and them proceeded to ask me about a hundred betta questions! I was a little toungue tied after awhile, so I tried to make an excuse and leave the two kids, but the younger girl grabbed my hand and told me that there was a fish that they were VERY scared of, and would it bite them? I thought it was a pirhana or a barracuda or something, but no ... it was a shy yellow gourami boy. Does he bite? they asked. What are those stringy things? Is it a baby? What do they eat? etc etc *onto the next tank, repeat* (by the fifth or sixth time I was sort of BSing ... but *shhh!*)

Finally, after about twenty minutes, the two of them had to go home. I gave a small sigh of relief, but I was also feeling VERY happy that I talked to them about bettas. I hope that the two girls got something out of my impromptu feild trip, maybe a first step towards responsible fishkeeping!

Thats too cute!

Everytime i have my niece it's "See fishys" shes three, she loves looking into the low open top "pond" on the stand in the store because the fish (gold fish and koi?) gulp at the surface. And everytime i remind her not to touch and now before i get to she says "NO TOUCH, Bites!" i laugh and agree not to touch
