My mom, is confusing. She doesn't care how many bettas nor fish i have as long as i take care of them and keep them out of her way. I once had 20 bettas and they were all in my room:).

She also is kind of interested in my breeding, like my first breeding, she loved it but sometimes it can get to her lol.

Like sometimes she would say *sigh* another one...and when ever i ask for money and she asks what for, i get kinda nervous to say its for a fish lol.

Now that I'm an adult and paying the bills, I can understand where a parent would come from with the limiting on the number of pets. (Fish or otherwise) but I remember the first time my mother gave me the ultimatum of getting rid of a pet each time I brought home a new one.

But that being said, that law was laid down after I brought home three litters of kittens to foster (who ALL found homes btw), a bird from work (my hand-fed baby Renegade: RIP), already had my cat, my dog, 2 rats, a single male betta and a community tank with guppies I'd adopted from the store I worked at. (The manager was planning on feeding the fry to the aggressive fish in store. I got permission to give them a home instead; because we couldn't sell them.

So, over all I am with you on the whole "this limit blows" but as I look back, I can understand your parents putting a limit.

My mom's main thing was she wanted me to stop spending money on my fish, like buying new fish. She doesn't really care if I have to buy food or something. I spend way to much money while going to school, I feel really bad about it, and had planned to save all my money for next semester but instead I bought fish. I'll just have to be better at spending less money when school starts. I feel bad since I don't have a good job, and I have to quite once school starts :(

:O i do understand my parent's point of view, though I constantly ask my parents why, and they say we can afford it, but... they think i'm getting too close to bettas, they're scared that if one of my bettas get sick, i wont sleep until he's better, and i dont know why, they dont want me getting too close to them ): my dad was telling me when i just got my second betta XD

We kept an aquarium in the living room with no fish. It was just there, doing nothing. I asked my parents to give me the tank and I would shoulder the responsibility of it. I mean, no one else was taking care of it >.>

So now it's in my room and the family couldn't care less what I do with my new betta hobby as long as the cash is coming out of my own pocket :P

Well i understand why parents would put a limit on any animal or fish, because any other species other than fish is just another loving mouth to feed. =D
