Question I have the betta bug, apparently

In two days, I went from having one betta, to rescuing my brother's poor fish, to having two boys waiting on a divided ten gallon to finish cycling. This is dangerous ^____^" Has anyone else been affected so quickly? These two will milk my wallet dry...

I went from 1 Betta (Ben) to 3 Bettas in 3 weeks. Since June I have bought 13 Bettas :) It does die down, the addiction, but it's always there!!

Heh, I've just gotten into the wonderful world of Bettas, and I'm already addicted! I adore mine, and I have to fight myself from bringing home another every time I go to the pet store.

I almost bought one today, but out of the two I liked, I think one was dead and the other had tail issues. I'm already working on trying to make sure my guy doesn't have a chewed tail/tail rot, and I didn't think taking on a second fish with potential health problems was a good idea when I have zero experience with them, so I put him back. I feel a little bad about it, though.

Having a sorority helped me a lot, because it was a wonderful way to have many bettas without having to have 7 billion individual tanks. :)

I'm a betta-addict but I'm fighting it. The last thing I need are 20 1-gallon bowls in my dorm room! LOL
