So, totally found this via the FB page, and shamelessly entering for the $50 gift certificate (which, yes, would be used to buy all sorts of Betta goodies!!!)

I've been addicted to Bettas for about 10 years; originally, after a few failed attempts as a kid, I finally got back on the bandwagon when a friend introduced me to an amazing local fish store that had a beautiful selection of bettas.

1 turned into 2 turned into 3 turned into 30.
Yeah, I was that crazy fish lady all my friends knew. It took me over 3 hours every month to do water changes. All my little dudes had gorgeous, spacious little set-ups, each with a little mini flowerpot to hide in and gravel and plants to match their colors. They were on every spare surface of my apt and in almost every room!

I even ordered one direct from Thailand off of aquabid (DANGEROUS!! ha ha! it's seriously a tempting place for a betta lover to go; too many gorgeous fish!!). I had them all: veiltail, delta, halfmoon, crowntail, giant. A harem of females for a while, but they never really did well with me (sad!)

After a few years, the last of my guys passed away of old age while I was living abroad (and my friend was taking care of the few left). I went through a few betta-less years, gave away all my extra bowls and containers in my move from LA to SF.

A year and a half ago, I decided to get a little one for my work desk, so I'm now back to pampering a beautiful little blue and red crowntail (my fave!)

And here I am! : D Almost got another two over this weekend, but with two cats in the house, my betta space is severely limited without making makeshift covers.... So just the one for now.
