I'm sure the bettas wound up in a much better home with you than the original owner. And then the fact they lied about it after coming back-not right. I currently have 16, but some are pending adoption (babies-until they are older & stronger). I only will adopt locally as of right now & so far it's only been to people I know.
I have 12 bettas. I've been keeping them for 7 years now. Two different neighbors got bettas but 1 didn't want to take care of hers so, after getting my own I ended up keeping hers after she went on vacation and left him with me. She came vack and never took him home. Then she lied to several people, saying I didn't want to give him up.
I love reading too! Even my textbooks (yes, I'm that nerd). And I'm just learning to crochet. I find it relaxing as opposed to all of my other very physical hobbies. I can only do simple chains to make blankets so far. Really interested in learning other styles.
How many bettas & how long have you been keeping them?
Thank you :) It's hard, requires a lot of discipline, takes up a lot of time & money. But it's so worth it! I've never lost in competition in my division. I compete on the adult circuit and have qualified to go to a national competition twice. Finances always fall short on that since you have to pay not only all of your expenses, but all of your coaches as well.
Thanks! It's a lot of fun, but super hard on the joints. At 29, I've been suffering from moderate osteoarthritis for almost 16 years. I didn't start ice skating until I was 24 & began competing at 26. I hold 5 titles and it will be hard to pass on them this year. No time unfortunately to devote to training 5-6 days a week, plus dance and keep my grades up with school. Ironically, I can't roller skate or roller blade. I'm used to being able to turn on a dime with just that small amount of metal on the blade ;)
