Within reason of course, because we know us fishlovers have an expensive budget in our "dream world"

WHAT WOULD YOU ASK YOUR SIG OTHER FOR VALENTINES DAY?

I'm curious as this has been a subject of debate and ive actually asked my bf who goes all out, to either take me to dinner or get a me a nice gift certificate to my LFS!! (he spends way way way too much on roses that are beautiful and appreciated, but don't last)

A whole day and night out!!!..It would be great to go somewhere for the day have fun doing whatever we want, dinner, movie, shopping (going to the fish store kind of shopping) Then get a nice Hotel with a hot tub and pool and a bar and have a nice night without kiddos!!!...This won't happen but it's a nice thought..I'll probably get a hug and a kiss, tell me what a great wife and mom I am,,( Which I am..lol..)and a nice card..Which is more then enough to keep me happy, because he's a good guy..Now, if he were a jerk I'd be asking for diamonds..lol..

Oh wow.......I wouldn't ask for things.....ok, maybe a hood, heater gravel and ornaments for one of my 30's.......but besides that I'd rather he go down my honey do list and complete some much needed projects.

I'm hoping this spring we will have a hot tub...but not at the cost of giving up a tank LOL ..which was my option last year

A 3 gallon eclipse tank for a future beta. Which I'm probably getting!

Is there anyone on this forum who doesn't have at least one betta?!
I think that the Betta Bug should be a classifiable disease, listed as VERY contagious.

Amanda, this will actually be my first betta! Can you believe it? My husband has had them before. I saw Martinismommy's pics of her babies and heard how social they are. I'm really hoping she breeds them again in the spring.
 

Amanda

Member
I hope she breeds her beautiful boy Patron....then I'll have to find some $$ to buy one & get it shipped to my house.
It really is a disease!

I don't even like looking at pics of Martinsmommys Bettas. It makes me SO jealous. You can't get anything even approaching their beauty over here. I shudder to think what people here would pay for them.
 

Amanda

I could make a FORTUNE shipping fish to NZ. lol

Over here Bettas come in 3 colours. Red, Blue, or Dirty Yellow. Or Red..............

Maybe I'd ask for a significant other...
Yes, I'm a bit bitter around this time of year. Yes, I'm so sick and tired of being single. Yes, I hate being lonely and being *almost* 20 and still living at home and going on like one date a year. I guess my weirdness is just too much for the boys to handle.
Anyways, shut up me! Enough whining!

I never thought of Valentine's as a day for presents... I just always thought a few roses or a box of chocolates, lol. But hey, some people get presents for Easter too, which I'd never heard of, we just got candy lol.

Don't feel bitter Pink! Your not missing much, my wife won't be getting anything either!

My boyfriend hates Valintines day, his ex apparently broke up with him on it. Just means I need to be nicer to him that day.
