I want a betta. Really, REALLY badly. But, seeing as I'm only 14, the decision is ultimately up to my parents. So, I've done some extensive research and created a PowerPoint about betta ownership. I showed it to my mom and dad, and they seemed really impressed. Of course, they need to think it over, so I won't know until tomorrow if I can get one.
ya it is! thx.he is a delta tail betta. after i got him i noticed his tail had a beutiful shiny green hue to it, it looks like blue in the pic. I would reccomend a good tank(3+ gallons), heater and low flow filter. Cycle the tank if its above 5 gallons. PM me if you have any more questions..
My parents said no. They said that "they'd have to take care of it" even though I promised I'd take care of it. Needless to say, I'm very upset with them right now. They know how responsible I am; I get straight A's at school, and I did TONS of research before I even asked for a fish. I mean, who else would make a 15-slide PowerPoint about getting a pet fish? And it's not like I was asking for money...I was going to pay for everything!! They tried to placate me by saying, "maybe over the summer," but I know from past experiences that there's about a 1% chance of that happening.
Sorry about the rant. I just needed to let off some steam.
