good better betta

hannah, 20 years old, cis female. posts about all kinds of fish, and occasionally about my other pets (rats and snakes). vegetarian and transitioning vegan.

I think I’m going to make a rat blog because I always have to restrain myself from making too many posts about my rat babies on my fish blog ^-^

Goodbetterbetta’s 1000 follower giveaway will be starting soon! It will begin once GBB hits 950 and end at 1000 :D :D

Holy carp- that’s a colossal amount of goldfish to care for.

I admire your bravery.

I do wonder- is a bath tub even big enough to be a temp home for that many goldies???

George the goldfish’s surgery to remove a tumor is a neat little story! (With more photos)

He said people often became attached to pets, “from goldfish to budgie”, and that veterinarians valued the bonds between humans and animals, and did not discriminate between the species when trying to save lives.
"Every day I’ll do something different like this - operate on a little frog, or treat budgies, lizards, snakes and wildlife," Dr Rich said.
Despite their size, he said goldfish could live up to 30 years if looked after properly.

FUCK
Ok so my plan was to put them in a big bin I had, but that got cracked somehow. So I have to make due with this.
Unfortunately, I can’t afford a pond now or in the future, as much as I would LOVE to keep these guys.
So I’m taking the healthiest ones in to my work to be sold as PETS. It’s not ideal, I know, but it’s better than dying in a dumpster.
Also unfortunately, about 20 were dead in the bag when I got them. The remainder are in really rough shape and may not pull through. As it stands, in this condition, I cannot take them into work.
So for now I’ll care for them to the best of my ability.
IF ANYBODY IN RHODE ISLAND HAS A POND OR STOCK TANK AND CAN TAKE THEM PLEASE SEND ME AN ASK. I’d love to re home them that way but I know it is unlikely.

Boooost!

Boosting for the babes

Seb and I have new tanks! ten gallons with heaters, lights, filters, live plants, and even a few shrimp and snails! thank you to the betta blogs who helped educate us into getting new tanks! these babies were previously in 1 gallon aquariums without heaters or live plants!

Gorgeous! I’m so happy for you! :D :D

THE GOLDIES ARE BACK!

And look how big they’ve gotten! Even the three fry aren’t babies anymore.

I had to move them inside since the pond was getting too cold, so for the winter they’ll be living in two 55 gallon tanks. They’re all in one for now, but tomorrow some of them will move to the tank downstairs (I haven’t decided who yet).

I’m sad they had to leave their nice big pond, but it’s so nice to have them back!

Are you a lesbian?

Nope! I identify as pansexual, meaning that I can be attracted to a person of any gender (male, female, or otherwise). I am more sexually attracted to women and romantically attracted to men. *shrug*

~~the more you know~~

To the anon with Silver Dollars: They are very skittish about movements sometimes, but they are super peaceful! Just be careful not to bump anything, otherwise they can go a little crazy and might smack themselves against the tank walls. I had that happen to me with my two a few times.

Hahahaha good to know. Here ya go, anon :D
