So I had a few realizations.. I mean more then a few.. o.o wow, been thinking a lot today!
Number one; I shouldn't get any more bettas. No more adopting MoonShadows boys, and no more begging my hubby for more girls for the sorority.. I have to stop because I am seriously going to try breeding, and that means I'm going to have a LOT of new betta fishies to take care of. I'll have more then enough females to fill my sorority soon enough, right? Alright, so it's settled, I will not buy, adopt or rescue any betta.... unless it's something REALLY special (>.>). Or disabled. No, no special, because they're ALL special, but I will take disabled bettas because I think I have a little experience at handling disabled fish and love gaining new experience through their care. Like with Tidbit.. I have learned that, as long as the swim bladder is in tact, being without a tail isn't life threatening, so if I happen to come across this defect, or something like it, in my spawns, I know that the fish don't always have to be culled, just placed in my private tanks and not sold. Right? RIGHT!
Number two: I can't talk normal on Facebook.... *sigh* I can't talk about family stuff, I can't talk about fish too much, and my hubby hates me posting pictures there. Blah.. but I can talk here.. mostly about fishies! So realization number 2 is that I like Bettafish.com more then Facebook.. dude.. and I used to be a FB addict!!!
Number three: I like girl fish more then boy fish.. o.o... Scandalous...
Number four: I like green water. Amber water.. Dirty water! I like it when my sorority, which is decorated as close to river bottom as I was willing to get, turns dark amber because of the driftwood.. and it's even more amber now because of the IALs I put in today. And I love it! My hubby hates it :(
Number four: This is the big one.. and this one I might get some crap for.................. I really want to breed Tidbit.. Gosh I feel like a horrible person even thinking this, but I do. She is by far my favorite betta right now. I mean out of all of them. She is so sweet, so cute when she moves, has no problems maneuvering.. I think of a defect as something that hinders, but her missing tail actually makes things easier on her. She can move in ways none of my other bettas can, has no problem defending herself and has no health problems.. yet. So I am weighing the pro's and con's and can't come up with enough con's except for it's wrong. :( I can't come to terms with it on a moral level, even though I can on a scientific level.. it's so frustrating.
Alright, anyway... random picture time I guess?
(This is Gizmo, she is counting pro's and con's for me.)
