Doing What We Can At PetSmart

So I was picking up a Spec 2 for mom's new betta half-moon, which will arrive Monday.

I saw a college kid with muck boots on looking at veil tails. I pointed her toward the lovely new halfmoons, and helped her pick out a cellophane one with pink iridescence, a bottle of Prime and a small heater by Zoo Med.

She was surprised when I told her that bettas can live for 8 years, and that my previous set had lived for 5.

She had only changed water every three weeks. Eeeek!

I suggested she buy a turkey baster and vacuum poop daily and water change weekly! And join bettafish.com

Then she followed me home and I gifted her new fish and her other fish (a small red betta that a friend gave her) with:

2 tbsps of NLSpectrum TheraA pellets

And 2-4 of each of these:

dwarf water lettuce
Salvinia
Anachris stems
Broadleaf water wisteria

Plus the Happy Healthy Pet Guide to Bettafish.

Doing my part to Prevent inadvertent betta abuse.

Prana (deep blue/purple CT female) Fluval Spec 2

Qi (turquoise CT female) 5 g riparium

Vanilla Beast (Ivory apple snail diffusa), Watson and Crick (Amano shrimp), Tributary (Moss Ball aka AquaTribble) Fluval Spec V

Pond and ramshorn snails (so many!) 2.5 g

Mr. And Mrs. Smith (assassin snails) 0.5 QT tank

Leopard ramshorns 16oz NPT Mason Jar

that's great! i hope her bettas are happy and live a long time. :3 last time i helped out a betta was the day before Mother's Day. a lady wanted to get her mom a fish tank, and i suggested the 3 gallon Tetra halfmoon tank and a betta. she then got her son a 5 gallon, and i think it's gonna be Spongebob themed with another betta.
