I like beta's alright. It always makes me sad to see them in itty bitty tanks though
:nods hard: At Wal-Mart, most times they look either half-dead, like they wish they were dead, miserable, all of the above. Rarely do they look content. Do you (or anyone here) know any places where bettas are actually cared for/aka, any good pet stores?
In response to the poll: I don't know if I LOVE them, or prefer others. I've never had any other fish! :P So by the process of elimination, I'd have to vote that I love them, lms!
Lots of people say that fish are boring (my siblings, for one), but I'd not say that. They're...something about them is just...amazing? Entertaining? Beautiful? I don't know, but they're wonderful =) If I see a dead fish, or think of a fish dying, I literally end up having to take deep breaths to calm down. Fish are NOT just 'things,' they're pets as well as pets that you can play with!! (Like hamsters, mice, gerbils, guinea pigs, iguanas...list goes on)
