Just be a little softer with your approach. People who post here are looking for help, and there is no need to scold when they understand the problem. They were likely misinformed, just like many others. But that is what we are here for. To help and support.

Yes, you have said it numerous times on this thread. I am sorry that Petco gave me bad advice when I bought the thing over a month ago. I haven't said "well I am keeping it anyway" or that I am going to flush it. I went specifically to Petco to get advice on what they had that would work with the betta for someone new to owning a fish.

It was a mistake for me to post here, thanks to the folks that helped but this type of attack is ridiculous. Given that I spent $70 in supplies for state fair feeder fish, I think it is safe to say I don't view fish, or any animal for that matter, as disposable.
