C-R-A-Z-Y!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who ever thought of this must have never heard of fish. Hopefully this sort of thing will be made illegal. I feel so bad for the bettas suffering in the 'bowl'.


Edit: Ok, i didn't mean to get ahead of myself like that but it's just HORRIBLE!

Kids would want to cuddle with the bowl since it's plushy

Would that mean that the kids would carry around the "bowl" and bring it places with the fish inside?!? How people come up with these crazy ideas I will never understand...

I still don't believe my eyes. Seriously, with the water sloshing around inside(the kid is hugging it), the fish is sure to die!

This "thing" is an insult to fish and their owners everywhere. It makes me feel horrible because of what people do to fish... just because they are fish. I was at a carnival the other day as a volunteer, and they were handing out live baby KOI, Goldfish, AND bettas, and putting them each in a 1/4 gallon container. The Bettas were given the least water, about half an inch. I was so furious, so i went to the library nearby and printed out koi, goldfish, and betta care sheets and handed out wanter condtionder samples. This one mom took the fish and i asked her if she wanted any water conditonder. She was like "no, i don't really care about fish, i mean its just a fish, the question isn't if its gonna die, its when." I wanted to take the fish right back from her, but i could get in serious trouble if i did. I despise people like that. How selfish, in fact, i think that is a form of animal abuse.

I apologies if i offended anyone, but this just makes me angry :(

Under "Betta Care:"

"Betta Fish orignated from Southeast Asia and live in small puddles. Therefore, they do well in smaller habitats."

"Male bettas do best in .25 gallon bowls or larger."
Mom: "Oh, .25 gallon is the best." *Buys .25 gallon bowl*

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