It is fine to educate people just be careful how you do so. If you come across arrogant and rude with them for what they are buying, just be prepared for what you could get back from them.

I totally agree with you on this. The mother of the young boy was very grateful for the help and info.

@ bettanewbie60: I love that you had enough guts to do that(: hopefully they will be giving a betta a good home soon.

@ Calypso77: I understand that you have to be friendly to the people, if you weren't they'd probably still buy the wrong stuff anyway.

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

Thanks Magnum..I felt bad for the little boy's sad face, but I figured he'd be a lot sadder if he came home from vacation and found a dead fish. sigh

Poor kid, at least he'll go back to the petstore and choose wisely so that he will have his new buddy for longer.

I can't wait to actually work at a petstore or aquarium... Then I can say all these things without looking like some random know-it-all teen.
