Omg... That fish looks like Shainax's TDP. I'm on the verge of tears.

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

Well, prolly not ears but you know what I mean. They feel the vibrations in the water from sound waves, which is irritating. It'd be like you putting your ear to a speaker and putting it on the heaviest bass song.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

That Betta would've died anyway. I pretty sure that it's 'owner' took bad care of it. At least it died a quick death. Rather than slowly dying in a bowl of ammonia. Animal cruelty... Why did the world make such a thing? :(

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

Some fish (goldfish) are thought to be able to hear much like we do, and since their "hearing" isn't much different than bettas (just bigger) I believe they can hear. I don't think they hear like we do, though. But they probably hear better than we give them credit for. :P

Donald hates Lady Gaga, but doesn't mind any other music, so... Idk :P

I think that they feel music vibration... Maybe this is the reason why my betta was "dancing" while I was listening to music and a mirror was put next to him...

It's like sticking your head underwater and you can feel the vibrations of someone walking by. It's really....different and kinda puts you off if you're not used to it.

Wait, what? they arent just decorations?

Yeah, there are some sad stories on youtube. But the turtles dangling in the key pouch has got to be horrible.

Those of you that have the 'perfect' tank, could start posting it. Explain why its perfect, the size, the temp, the water conditions, the food etc etc. All while being real, and not condescending?

Then post links here so we can go vote, and we can vote for them all. I know its the long way around to help our friends, but it could work.

After a while, perhaps they will try to out do themselves on the 'perfect' set up. You know?

In all honesty, there is no "perfect" setup. If it were, the water would change itself every week, and ammonia / floride / chlorine would simply disappear on its own, and poo would turn itself into bloodworms and brine shrimp. Every tank requires maintenance, every fish requires care. Some tanks require more work than others, and some shouldn't even be considered a liveable situation.
