Hi, my name is Allie...

and I'm addicted to buying Betta fish.

I currently have two Bettas: Blueberry and King Louis. I decided to get a Betta because of my boyfriend's mom. She has six or seven of them and after spending months looking at them, I decided to get one too. So I bought Blueberry. He's currently in a 2.5g tank.

I was not intending to get another Betta until I discovered I was out of cat litter and needed more. So an emergency trip to Walmart led me to discover that they sell fish. Looking through their collection of Bettas I noticed that one of them was dead. I couldn't walk away without rescuing at least one Betta, so I bought King Louis. He's in a 1.5g tank (which will be upgraded next month to a 2.5g) and is doing just fine.

I recently stopped by PetSmart and had to be dragged away from the shelves holding the Bettas. I was too tempted to buy them all!

I'm looking forward to learning from this site. Adieu!

Being with enablers is so much more fun than being around people who will try (unsuccessfully) to talk you out of it.

I'm looking for the cord to upload my pictures onto my computer. I had it yesterday and it just walked off.

Thanks everyone for the welcome!

Can you imagine.... Betta Mommys and Daddys telling all their babies bedtime stories about how to look pitiful from the cup so humans will buy them. So at the Betta family reunions they say "well I have three humans... another says I have four and still another says.....
Sorry I'm delirious
