Can adopt a betta :)

    Have any of you ever adopted a betta fish?

    I have an additional tank and I'd love to adopt a betta in need rather than buy one from the store.

    What are your thoughts? Any experiences? Know of any bettas that need a home? :)

    You should buy one and find the colors you like it is much easier to find and takes less work thankeep finding a fish to adopt

    I adopted a betta a few months ago from a friend who was keeping him in a 0.5 gallon bowl and didn't want him anymore (she was literally trying to kill him by not feeding him/cleaning his tank). If you adopt a betta in need, I can tell you it's definitely a lot of fun to see the changes in the betta's personality when you upgrade their living conditions :)

    If you wish to adopt I would look at places like craigslist for bettas in need near you.

    What clk said. Some areas seem to more frequently have bettas needing good homes than others. Rarely any by me, but Aquaphobia seems to have done almost all her stocking that way, lol.

    I would definitely suggest it.

    LOL! So true, Bithimala:rolleyes:

    Also agree with clk, watch your local classifieds, especially if there's a big college/university near you and a seasonal population of students. All kinds of pets suddenly become available at the end of the school year and bettas are frequently one of them;)

    Good idea! You can also put an ad in craigslist that you are looking for a betta.
