Lol.... Sorry! xD
I don't think I'm not going to notice that... But ok.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

How do you know this?
I've stuck a fishing hook through a shrimp's body and it fails around as if in pain. So I'm pretty confident that they KNOW and FEEL pain.
