He's a laugh a minute and has tried to eat everything in his tank at least once.

Never heard anyone say they live for ever. Have though heard multiple times "they don't live very long" and have seen numerous people bang at fish tanks, reptile tanks, cages and pretty much anything that may hold an animal inside. This specially occurs in the zoo, I have to go around reminding people that that hurts the animals... the vibrations are not fun for them and animals are not there for you to "watch them do something".

I bet they store did not stop after they sold you those 17 did they?
I have seen a few places that have a clue, but it has been years and I could count them on 3 fingers.
Lemme tell you this.

Even if those 17 fish had died in their little plastic cups, do you really think a big chain is going to stop selling them? No. They won't.

May as well give one fish a good home for a few days than suffering in a tiny cup.

Hey there,

Yes I have some photos of Monty, I tried to pick out the best one but it isn't so great, anyhow here it is, probably should mention that the plastic plant in the tank is likely to cause people to cringe..... I didn't know much about bettas when I got Monty and yes he tore his tail so the plastic plant came out of the tank and I only ever used live and silk since then.

A very mature and open-minded viewpoint. And very well-stated.
Thank you, Lebron

I am sure Carter is glad Mom bought him for me. The advantage I had. I never heard the myths. I took my ten gallon down and thought the Betta would like the heater he got it. I thought the Betta would like a bigger tank he got it.

I'd be glad to. Just to NOT be in that little cup.
