Talking My mom thinks I'm insane. (LOTS OF PICS!)

yes, I've done it again. I had managed to restrain myself for a long time, I only had Yogi, my 1.5 yr old former-class-pet-betta, then about 2 months ago I saw a little redish-brownish HM at petco and bought him. then about a month later I got Hiroshi, my beautiful plakat boy from aquabid, for my b-day and splurged and bought him a 5 gal aqueon mini bow .Then about a week ago I saw a very pale grey dobletail at petco, and bought him (despite my mom's disapproval . (he's now perked up ALOT and is a dark steel blue! ) Well unfortunately my little HM guy was acting lethargic and died this week from unknown causes SO today me and my mom were at walmart today and of course the first place I go is the fish section. they had about 8 cups, a few were females. surprisingly, the water didn't look too dirty. better than my petco actually. (I saw a little female with dropsy so bad she couldn't even swim, I wish I could have bought her and made her comfortable even though she obviously wouldn't have made it but I couldn't risk infecting all my fish ) ANYWAY in the back of all the cups was a little marble VT, easily the nicest betta I've seen at any store. I knew I wasn't gonna leave without him but I was afraid of my mom's reaction LOL so i'm like "okay pleeeeeaaase don't kill me but I just gotta get this one! look how pretty he is! " Well she was only a bit reluctant but let me get him!!
OKAY sorry for the long post- here he is!!!!!






get me out of this tiny cup!!!

My mom thought I was nuts for having 2 bettas and a hamster at the same time! (I only have one betta and a hamster now). But I've convinced her that one betta is just not cutting it. My one betta is in a gallon vase, right under my lamp. I know, not ideal conditions, but she is surprisingly peppy and happy in there. I'm hoping to get 1-2 new plakat guys to soothe her lonliness. Then I will put the new guys in 1.5 gallon tanks untill I get two 10 gallons. One for the new boys to split and one for Shimmer to have all to herself until I find another betta to share with her. My plan is to get 2 plakat guys from Chard56 (on aquabid) then to splurge on a guy and or girl from a breeder in Thailand. The guy or girl from Thailand will be really expensive because the guy charges like 20-25 dollars a betta + like $30 in shipping fees. But in the end I hopefully will have 4 bettas in total. :) My mom is learning to deal with my obsession. :)

The problem is ONE betta is never enough. Once you see that happy little guy/girl full of personality you want to make another one just as happy.

I'm currently itching to get another tank! I have an entry table in my apartment with an outlet beind it that would be PERFECT for a 5 galon. I'm keeping strong.

I'm looking at gettting this one: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hawkeye-5-...ts/14660258#rr
I would not use the filter as I prefer the sponge filters but I wouldn't need to replace the light. Have everything else but the plants and the fish!
We'll see...
