I don't normally do this......

I just had to give a loud sigh of exasperation over the bad betta themed Youtube videos out there. Seriously! I saw one where the guy titled it "The Best Betta Tank Ever" and it was an old liquor bottle with a stem of lucky bamboo stuck into it and obstructing the only means of fresh air flow.

Honestly, some people are born without common sense.

Or the "look at my bettas fight" and really the nitwit 12 year old has two females and a male together all of which don't look well fed or happy, in an inch of water in a cup I saw that one. "My fish won't fight..." Duh, real fighting fish are conditioned! -.-

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

Have you seen the videos of the live turle keychains? They are horrible! I can't believe some poeple are so dense to think a live animal can survive in such a tiny sealed pouch with no food or care.

Animals without a voice, or strong defense have to suffer from mankind's stupidity, greed, harshness, and cruelty.

I saw one today where a guy fed his girlfriend's betta to a huge Oscar. 80 pages of comments telling him he was a jackhole

He said she didn't want it any more and you could hear her in the background giggling

Not as bad as the iPond Aquarium Speakers Apple was attempting to dole out...

Man I've seen a lot of these and its absolutley terrible! Some videos I've seen are bettas in nothing but a cup. My first betta was in a vase but I was going to get him a new tank unfortunatly he died a month later becuase I used those glass rocks and his head got stuck in those by the time I got back from school and noticed he was dead! My new betta is in a 10 gallon tank with gravel and a filter. But I really should have got a better tank sooner.

an ipod tank? It would sound cool if it weren't blowing out your fishy's ears.

It makes me angry to see people thinking that betta's are just decorations. There not. Their living animals, who deserve all the same care as your pet dog. Just because they are small, dosn't mean they can be kept in ridiculous enclosures for some peoples sad enjoyment to their 'new decoration'.

Current Betta:
Mulan: Blue/Green/Red HM Male

Those who now swim in the Rainbow Ponds:
Spike: VT Purple Male
Glaedr: CT Yellow Male
Ezio: DeT Dragonscale Male
Stu (Founder of the obsession): CT Blue Male
