lol xDDD Well I'm home schooled, so I don't even have that to restrict me from my fish obsession. All my tanks are right next to where I do school, in my room
Just one more year though.....8)

xDD I think I've no been bitten by the Betta bug D: And now that I'm not getting a hamster because of the puppy and the 10 is going into the gradenza....I have room right next to my comp for another tank or two Oh boy....

Glad to hear Bandit is doing well! Can't wait for pictures!

Wow you sure have been bitten by the betta bug!! We can always find somewhere for another tank :) I think fish are better than hamsters anyway personally. One of my hamsters was evil if you looked into his cage he would jump at you! Haha we have a guinea pig :) He's pretty cute.

Man I keep forgetting to take pictures! I might just wait until I get my last girl and then post pictures...

Haha, yes. If a fish bites you it doesn't hurt or draw blood.....usually XD Unless they're like, huge Cichlids. Though the hamster was meant as a companion, seeing as I didn't have a dog and....well....my horse isn't exactly keen on being cuddled unless you have carrots with you But, I have a dog now xD so.....more bettas! x3

xDD Okay, sure.

Haha yeah, same with my horses.. they sure do love their carrots!!

I think I've decided to ask for a 20 gallon long for Christmas and maybe divide it for a bunch of rescued male bettas, what do you think? Man I wish males got along. The tank would look way better with them just swimming around instead of divided :(

Yay! That sounds awesome! If I just had enough room for another 20 long..... Then again, I could always divide my 12 into three if I really wanted....
Oooooo, if males would get along....that would be an amazing tank! Planted with a bunch of male bettas swimming around peacefully....*dreams*

I've housed three males in a ten gallon succesfully before. Very few plants and décor. They were very peaceful and beautiful. All red crowntails. There were two red ct females with them as well. Other than establishing pecking order and flaring for a few days, everyone settled in nicely.

That is hard to believe... yeah I'm pretty excited for a 20 gal. I think I'll move over my 2 males I have already so I can just replace a tank instead of adding one. I guess I would also move my male from our 5 hex... then get another betta haha

I'm sorry you don't believe me. I'm afraid I have no photographs as I had no camera at that time. This was like eight years ago when I was young. They all lived five and a half happy years and died shortly after one another. The only reason they were together is because I was young and didn't know better, being six, going on seven at the time. I saved up all the money from my birthday and Christmas for them.
