My name is Laura and I'm 32 years old. I'm from New York but I currently live in Alaska and have been here since 2000. I came to Fairbanks as part of the national student exchange program and was only supposed to be here for 1 semester, 11 years later, I'm still here.
I have one male dog who is gonna be 9 years old in a few days. He is a american eskimo dog (think 30 pound white pomaranian) and one chinchilla who is about 3 or so years old. And 23 bettas.
I got my 1st betta last year when i found a 2.5 gallon mini bow setup at value village for $12. I was being ignored by petco employees so I decided "screw this" and picked up a fish in a cup instead. It was a red and transparent double tail male. However he didnt live very long because some idiot from a certain pet store told me if i had a filter i never needed to change the water. Then i got 4 others but they all died in less then 48 hours. Finally, I decided to mix tap and distilled water and conditioner. Lo and behold mr Fishie No. 5 did not die. Infact he is still alive
He is a royal Blue HM named Grumpy because he is a tail biter.
The original Mr fISHIE
Mr Fishie No. 5 AKA GRUMPY. I got him in March of 2011.
Then after Grumpy, came LUCKY. He was known as "sicky fish" for a while.
