I'm not EVEN gonna ask... :-)
Congrats on the new addition. Fish have a funny way of wriggling their way into your life.
NFO- I just decided I wanted a Betta. It's partly for me to watch after work to relax since drinking heavily for that purpose is rather frowned upon. And, it's partly because he is pretty and I like pretty things.
True, but it's not purple :-D
Fighting fish make good pets. Eventually, he'll learn you are his source of food and will try to get your attention at feeding time. The native habitat of the fish is stagnant water without enough oxygen, so forgetting a water change won't spell doom; he can breathe air from the surface.
My Daddy said they had 'em when he was a kid. You can't put 'em in a tank with non-aggresive types. And you sure can't put 'em in with another male Betta... they'll fight till they kill each other. Daddy said they'd put a mirror in the tank and that Betta'd fight his own reflection as long as it stayed there.I always liked the idea of putting them in a smaller aquarium rather than the little glass bulbs, but that's just me.
