having a betta=being girly?

Im just curious how many people here are guys? My college "friends" always comment on me having a betta fish as being girly. What's so wrong with a strong man wanting to take care of a little fish? I love animals in general, and my college dorm only allows me to have fish but my betta is keeping me happy so.........ya :D

Sweet. Right on dude, Betta fish. Manly.

Who says a man can't be prettier than a chick betta?

Sorry, 13 year old chick here.

Having bettas doesn't make you girly, lol. Though there are fewer guys on the forum than girls, I believe. As long as your fishy keeps you happy and you keep your fishy healthy, that's all that counts!

Hey, they are fighting fish. That ain't girly? I mean, it isn't no 55 gallon Ciclid tank, but still!

You know what would make chur friends stop saying that and make them envy you? Buy this tank-

Psh. When I was growing up, my dad kept clownfish and yellow tangs. He's a tough Navy guy too. I definitely don't think keeping fish makes you "girly", even bettas XD

It's a fish so brutal it has to be kept alone :D Totally metal. But in all seriousness keeping a fish in no way makes you girly. Unless being responsible for another life somehow is now a female only trait. I really missed that memo

In India having a betta makes you manly lol!
Women don't have any kind of interest in fish here, except the occasional goldfish kept for feng shui sake..
I'm the only chick on my Indian fish forum and guys are pretty amazed that I keep bettas. 6000 members and 1 girl. -__-
So don't worry dude, its aaaalll good!

Where I'm at is the same, girls hardly ever choose bettas as pets. It's totally a man thing ...... I was amazed when I found out that us guys are a minority in this forum. lol.

Lol, bettas can be manly! Just because they are beautiful, doesnt mean they arent tough.

Put a mirror infront of your bettas tank, and let your friends watch him flare when he sees his reflection. Thats should impress them! ;)
