Well yeah if it is for selling reasons then it's not bad, but he said it comes complete which is unsettling

He's selling them for profit...

he had that last sentence saying that if you don't like Vts he'll try to get the other tail types if you call him.

Considering that he is saying they come complete with a plastic critter carrier, I think those are what they are meant to live in...

All animals deserve respect, not just the cute and pretty ones.
Without "bugs", we would lose about 1/3 of our food, be nose high in decay, and entire ecosystems (including everything that supports the popular animals!) would collapse.

  • He's probably making $3-$4 off of each betta. That guy who's selling the bettas is also selling complete tanks, used & new and about 50-100 other varieties of fish. Based on his selection, I'm sure he owns one of the pet stores in the NYC area.
  • At least he's selling them for $5 total.
  • Not far from where I live, I came across someone that was selling bettas in those stereotypical vases with a bamboo plant for $30 = $20 profit off each package they sold.
  • There's nothing you can do other than harass them, but that will get you in trouble if you're not careful.

I wont harass them. really not worth the effort... and in this cities, I've seen bettas being sold in every worst situation possible.

Just one of those craigslist posts that make me go... oh no...not another idiot

There's also a guy on CL show says he is breeding show quality Cts. from the photo, it is looks like a Ct mutt with a messed up tail. it's probably closer to a combtail than a crowntail :/

Not even a proper combtail, though.

I assume he means albino catfish, not the feline variety of cats. xD
