I have had fish that I have become fond of over the years....I have made special efforts to keep those fish happy and healthy so I could enjoy them as long as possible.
I got off the porch and ran with the big dogs. Now I can't get back on the porch!

I find that I get much more attached to my fish if I only have a few in the tank. For example right now I have a tank for my male betta Westley and another for my girls, female bettas: mystic, yin, yang, and nessarose. I am much more attached to my bettas then I am of the guppies that I have.

Now I know that some of this reason is because I am more of betta person then a guppy person, but I feel that I can't get the one on one communication with a full tank then I can with only a few fish in there. With few fish you really get to know thier individual personalities that make them all the more special.
