Umm , everyone can say he/she loves his/her fish .
I don't see flushing as an "illegal" action but everyone I have asked before came with an attitude of "this is just a fish" - this statement really pisses me off , you see , maybe I don't like the action of flushing dead fish but if you come with a reason that "this is just a fish" I can't get it .
Maybe I think like that because my love to my bettas is so huge ..

I can see where it makes sense to flush, but I'm all for anything that goes against what most people do with their fish. (To make a statement, I guess :P) If you flush your fish, but you really love them, it's fine.

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

Someone here wrote that if he buries his fish is like leaving him dead in his water... Things like that are fine , when they're without the attitude of "just a fish" or "he died, then I don't care" ..

"just a fish"
That is the saying of uneducated pet shop store employees and people who regard fish like an ant. Fish are wonderful little people that deserve the best to live to the best quality of life.

As for burying Betta's I havn't had to yet, but I have buried my Godlfish, whom I buried under a little 'Lollipop' tree. I put a little wooden cross over her, but it is gone now. R.I.P little Pearl.

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

Rice field next door. Figure I ought to return them to the closest thing to home they have. Plus other things can eat the body rather than it rotting in the crapper or garbage dump.
