Hey, I just read your thread about you being worried about your betta. First off, I want to apologize about how so many people reacted to your situation. That's the internet for you! I remember what it was like not so long ago for me when I was your age... The things I did, thinking I was doing the best for the animals, only to realize now that I was probably torturing them. Its all a learning experience. Just like your friends are. We all go through many, some good, others not so much. I've been through my fair share and I'm still rather young :) Anyway. I'd happily be your friend and help you out as much as I can. I'm by no means an expert, but I'll gladly help you as best I can when it comes to your betta. This is a great site, especially if you need help or want to learn, but like everywhere on the internet, there are a few bad apples. Don't give up on it, or your fish, just yet.
