I LOVE YOU SO MUCH TAYLOR! Your care and love for your animals really shines through in every single video and social media post. You are a kind, loving, and fun person and I really hope there are others like you in the world.
I know you probably get this all the time but your videos mean a lot to me. Growing up my mom did not want pets in the house so the second I moved out I got an aquarium and took care of my first betta because there wasn't much I new about owning a pet. Bettas were so beautiful and I thought one step at a time one animal at a time I will try to figure this out on my own. Any change of my waters pH or if I noticed a single growth of algae I went straight to the internet but the information was so mixed... see more I was hoping for one concise place where I could just sit and be educated. Recently I've been watching your videos religiously (they are my breaks from studying for finals) and I'm trying to absorb as much as I can. Being a college student I often saw people purchasing animals as if it was a fashion statement not really caring about the environment they were bringing the animal into. In fact I got laughed at when I bought a 5 gallon tank, with a filter, and heater, many water conditioners ,etc . My friends claimed their fish lived in a plain 1 gallon fish bowl with nothing but a plastic tree just fine. They asked why did I waste so much money ( I basically lived off of ramen at the time) for a silly fish that would die anyway. I really believe getting a pet should not be a fashion statement it's not a new decor for your room it's a living breathing thing that experiences sensations. Anyway I hadn't really met someone who understood that stuff until I watched your video about how to care for clownfish bare necessities and saw how it pained you a little to talk about the "bare minimum" . I just wanted to say thank you for posting this stuff you are my favorite youtuber. I hope one day when I have enough money to afford a big tank I can do what you do. Sorry for this being so long, lol ,idk if you'll actually read this but thank you. Also looking forward to the future cheese merch!
