We are going to need to start a separate forum area for Betta addicts. LOL I can name each member that already is in that category already. We could start the meetings just like AA. Yes we really have the addiction for beauty and living things, and a challenge to see to the care and feeding giving them a long and healthy life. But really we already have a category called a Keeper. We dedicate our love for these fish for the beauty they share and the difference in attitude they have. We research their known needs and the problems they could face and their illnesses which can not be explained. How we treat each and every one so differently. The quality of life we try and give and the hope that we do it right the first time. We do it for the love we have for them because they give us their love with just being happy to see us.
Yes I think we have reached Keeper status. We have gone well past newbie, and passed hobbyist. It is not a hobby to a keeper. It's a passion and a love.
Well it would fill up most of my time during the day yes. but I'm retired and if it keeps me busy and out of trouble and out of my wife's sight. ( no more honey do lists. ( well yeah there are always those I can put off.) LOL
