I'm disappointed with tetra care.

I know they aren't the best company around in regards to their product line...but you would atleast expect they would give out correct information.
Saying that you can house a male with multiple females just kind of shocks me I guess. I joined their service for the occasional coupons a year or so ago and normally don't check the e-mails, but today when they sent me one saying "congrats! You're now a betta care expert" I had to take a look for laughs. Now instead of laughs I'm disgusted.

Oh you know, being a betta care expert has it's perks!
Lol I guess they do have a few decent products, but I have stopped buying anything but water conditioner from them for a while because f the misinformation they spread. This is the worst I've seen so far!

Hahah definitely, Tetra should be asking you for advice. And I'm not even joking ahaha xD

Yeah, I'll pick up the odd thing here and there from Tetra, but I'm really a Fluval person now

I don't quite read it as them suggestion a co-ed tank, but saying that females can be housed together. The fact that they don't tell you not to house males and females can really be misconstrued though!!

I missed it at first too, but it states "you should have one male Betta and the rest should be female"

"Make sure there is only one male. Females tend to get along better."
