Just saying, I almost died when you said that you were going to plant your tank. Seriously, I spat out my drink. I haven't done that in years!!

on a slightly more somber note, that sign should be posted on any LFS that doesnt treat betta well, namely walmart but other stores/locations that are applicable.

Awwww but then it gives the sign a negative connotation :(

then again its the meaning of the symbols that takes precedence. pictures as just shapes and colours. its what one associates with them that defines them situationally. one can present any symbol as a good or bad connotation.

True, some symbols even had totally different meaning when they were "created" than what we know of them today :)

Wish I would have read this sooner.

I got my first betta during spring break with some of my birthday money, after doing extensive research about the fish. One 1.5 gallon Tetra cube with all the trimmings and a betta later, not sure if my bf would be happy with the new pet.

A few days later, I have a 4 gallon tank, a second betta, and planning on getting a 10 gallon on Thursday for a sorority. I was looking at the 5 gal tanks on sale at Petsmart today and thinking about how many I could distribute across the apartment. Lord help me.
