Angry The saga with betta bowls continues, even on craigslist...

I think everyone one will want to send this person an email or small note about betta care. Check this link out that I found with the following statement:

Betta Bowls




Reply to: znxzj-3175737380@comm.craigslist.org

"I have lots of Betta Bowls that I have for sale. All of the bowls that I have are New and are perfect for Betta collectors. The average price on these bowls are $5.99 and I'm letting them go for 12 for $30. That's a SALE price of $2.50 each! Please email me if your interested and I'll get back to you ASAP, Thank you! "

Betta bowl? o.O That's a candle holder....

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

I went ahead & emailed them as well... This is what they responded..

Thank you for being concerned about the Bettas. I am a former Betta Breeder/Collector and these bowls are much bigger than those sold at a pet store. Rather than someone buying a $5.99 - $7.99 bowl that holds 4 - 8 oz of water, these bowls are only $2.50 ea. and can hold 26 oz of water, great for betta fry or sm. Bettas. The bettas in Thailand are not only found in small ponds, but in small puddles too. I see your point and I do agree with you that they should be living in a big aquarium, but if someone going to purchase a bowl it's better that they purchase a 26 ounce bowl rather than 4 ounce for a higher price. I hope you see my view on things and I appreciate your concern.
