:( Oh, I'm sorry midnight... well... you could always pester them.... bring them online and let them look at this forum and all the beautiful fish. Show them how awesome they look in proper care, and how even a smaller 3 or so gallon set up can be rewarding. Eventually with persistence, they'll probably give in... I know my parents did ;)

do you take care of the cats listed in your sig? if so, you should point out how good of care you take of them. if not, maybe you should start pitching in more with them to show your parents you can be dedicated to taking care of a pet

That's a good idea!! I'm in charge of grooming them, but I can definitely do more.

Lol, I know when I was a kid my pets were usually like 50% of the deal done by my parents, but nowadays I can't let my mum near my fish, I mean, all she does is tease him or overfeed him when I'm not looking because she thinks he is poor and hungry <_<!

Or driving his instincts mad making him either bites her finger or hides on the tank when she tries desperately to poke him...

Well, I guess parents are diff.. Speaking of which tomorrow is her bday ;o

Anyway, tell your parents it's a fish, is not a dog, I know it sounds pretty weird, specially from a fish forum but you know, fish actually is 500x easier than a dog, I mean if your fish gets an illness, the medicine will be like $10 max and you can cure it at home, if was a dog would be over $1000 in a few cases. :V

Tell your parents you want a trial, it's a betta common, is not like a dolphin or a shark >_>

LOL!! "Mom, I want a pet shark!" That'd go over real well. xD

Anyway, I'll mention the dog. Maybe that will get her thinking...

Yeah, do stuff like, go to amazon and make a list of how much would cost to have a betta or a dog or even a cat, since you have 2. xD

Or say is early bday present, xmas or that you will study harder if you get idk lol xD!
I used to say that stuff when I wanted something, kinda worked the first time.. Never again hahahahaha
