Guys, hide your "abused" fish in those wonderful 10 gal tanks that you feed better than yourselves... I'm off to alert PETA. They can work for us... Sometimes. :P At least get the news out...

95.9% of the animals they "rescued" last year were put down. 80% of those animals didn't even have medical or behavioral problems that would of made them unadoptable.

Oh please, let's leave PETA out of things. They're an awful organization, so radical as to be uneducated and bordering on criminal.

Exactly Sakura!

PETA doesn't want anyone owning/caretaking/having companion animals. They think all ferrets should be let loose to join the wild...ferrets have been domesticated for over 2000 yrs and for better or worse, are unable to live in the wild. I have 4 ferrets, 2 are 1.3yrs old and 2 are about 6mos. Neither age group can identify raw meat/chicken/fish as edible! They barely understand that a raw egg can be eaten and then, only if I break the yolk for them. Yes, they are related to the polecat, closely...but they cannot just be set "free" to live in the wild!
If you want to notify an organization that cares and will help, call the humane society or ASPCA.

Sweet mangos. I think some people out there just see Bettas as a decoration piece rather than a pet.
I sent a pretty little email to them.

Girls, girls, your all pretty. The TT has positives and negitaves. It isn't perfect, it isntimpossible to keep a fish in it (though an adult would have better luck with it, ruining the point of it). I dont like the fact that its promoted as a toy.
Oh and on the side, this thread is starting to remind me of youtube comment wars.

I think that if it can't be heated... A betta shouldn't be in it.
I also wouldn't put my betta in anything under 2.5 gal. But I dont think anyone should put a betta in under 1 gal, and that is only if they do proper water xhanges for a 1 gal

I also do 100% water changes for my current 1-gallon tank, and Tom is doing great. A few years ago, when I had my very first betta fish, I had him in one of those 1/2-gallon bowls with a live bamboo plant in it, and he lived for over 3 years. I guess it depends on both the regularity of water changes and the particular betta.
