These vivosun commercial air pumps are garbage.
I got my for betta when I was 9. I had him for 5 years before he died. I have loved all creatures, finned, feathered and furry for as long as I can remember so far I have not had much luck with betta I got 2 last year and both ended up getting sick, we never figured out why or what caused it. But I hope to be able to have more bettas in the future. And keep them for many years.
They are Beautiful and just like Popcorn you just can’t have one . I had one when I was a youngin , so I thought to myself why not ‘ they have a calming effect after a stressful day at work. I absolutely love my fish tanks. They are so relaxing. My husband and I started betta “collecting” because he started faniting and they hypothesized it was due to stress. The fish tanks help us relax and the bettas are beautiful!
It originally started with me being uneducated and rescuing 2 fish from a bad situation. A molly and a goldfish… The people at petsmart told us the molly would do well in a 5gallon and goldie would do well in a 10gallon. Unfortunately, Molly didn’t make it and thanks to Facebook I found out goldie needed a huge tank. So we got her a 55gallon and had an empty 5 and 10 gallon so we got a betta for each tank. All 3 fish are thriving!
I got into Betta’s because I rescued mine from a Betta fighting ring at another college near where I was attending college as well and he has been with me ever since and I’ve adopted more and more because I just love their personalities. I got into bettas because I’ve always been a pet lover and as a little kid it was the only pet I was allowed to own lol but now I’m 23 and have nearly always had bettas and can’t get enough of them! Running out of room for tanks so I’m maxed out at about 3 at a time!
As i remember i watch one of nicholas cage movie and some part of a movie he is taking care of a betta and said that fish is hes best of friend..that is why like a loner guy i do the same thing to keep betta as a friend.. i maybe not a good keeper..but ill try the best i could..to keep them as my fish of mind ^^ (peace of mind)and friend as well.. keep staring them make me feel..relieve..
I stay away from my parents for study. I live alone in my apartment so i was always bored. I wanted a pet but my house owner is against pets so i decided to buy something smaller. Since i live in a small apartment, the pet should not consume more space also it should be easier for me to carry it if i shift somewhere. As im a full time student i cant afford much. All these ended up in me deciding to buy a fish. Yes in a Fish Bowl. Later i wanted to know which fish suits best for a fish bowl. The answer! A betta! I was attracted by the personality and by the magnificent looks . Later i researched about betta and then i brought one. Couldn’t resist buying other 2. Currently two are living in 20 gallon tank (divided) and other in 2.5 g tank
My parents got my siblings some betta fish for Easter two years ago. I decided to research them and then fell in love with how colorful they are and their feisty personalities. I found a 2.5 gallon with all accessories at a local thrift store and decided to get a Betta b/c they seemed “easy” and “cheap” as far as fish go. I didn’t realize they had so much personality and have really Tried to educate myself. I now have Poe along with snail friends Mary Shelly and Percy in a 10 gallon.
Our dog went missing about 1.5 years ago. Lately my 5 year old has been talking about her and how she misses her. They recently celebrated 100 days of kindergarten and one of their projects was to draw and answer what they would buy with $100. She said she would buy a dog 😭 I wasn’t feeling up for a dog again so I settled on fish. I’ve always had an interest in bettas as fish so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to go for it.
First betta – Spontaneous purchase. No reason aside from he caught my eye. The next, 20 years later, for the same reason! Love their dramatic personalities. My daughter (11) got us hooked on bettas . She is usually picking the sickest betta in store now and we are trying to make it better. Our recent rescue is a one eye female half moon.
My 5yo wanted a hamster and the betta was our compromise. By the time it was all said and done, he was MY betta and when he jumped ship and died, I was so upset, I got another one.
