I've seen worse. There was this piggy bank for babies, and it said that Betta Fish can live happily in it. @_@ The rice paddies are miles long and a few are deep.

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

Angry

These sicko's that come up with these ideas of the worst way to treat a betta, will it eva end, Wow, I thought I saw some really CRUEL ways to treat betta's and now this, I am wondering tho, It say's a "Toy fish"
My daughter got a "Jellyfish tank" and not real Jellyfish..I am hoping a consciencous person will think twice before ever putting a real fish in there.. my god, why don't they advertise this with goldfish..(just saying)

Why is it always betta fish, for the sole purpose of SICK AND TWISTED FORMS OF BETTA ABUSE.. like this pathetic thing that they are trying to market to Parents, for thier kids... WOW!!!! I am not surprized tho..unfortunatley, I even fear, there will be worse..

This is frightening... Life is life. Bettas = Puppy. Whatever divinity/science you believe in sees it the same way(or at least by what I've studied). No one is more important than anyone else. If someone will treat a betta, which has more personality than most fish, like this, what's next? I believe that eventually humanity will lose all compassion... That's what sets us apart from other animals. Once we do, we'll eventually kill ourselves off... Humans can't survive without each other's help. (Have you ever tried to fend off a bear by yourself? We're not made to do such things. :P)

Yeah... That's my philosophy/rant for today. :P

Sally, I will always love you. You were my babygirl and the gateway to my bettabug. Thank you.

Everyone email your complaints to customerservice@teddytank.com
At least they'll know how angry we are, even if they don't change it. I'm sure if they get enough mail they'll at least be annoyed...

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...

They just annoy the pee out of the company and bring attention to it. Brings the stock prices down. That'll get their attention. On their website, they have a giant list of products like this or events that are going to happen and urge you to email them. PLENTY of people do it. PETA even writes the email for you (you can write a personal one if you want) so all it takes is a total of 3 clicks and writing your email.

Sally, I will always love you. You were my babygirl and the gateway to my bettabug. Thank you.
