I use to work at an SPCA and ever week I would want a new dog. Some I did save others well....
My mom told me "Sarah you can't save them all" it's the sad truth.
The same goes about betta fish. You can't save them all. Maybe we should stop buying them all together and only get the from breeders. Betta fish are one of the most abused fish second to goldfish.
But if we could only get Bettas from breeders how many of the beginners would have the joy of having a betta fish. I think everyone's first betta comes from the pet store.
Very true on both accounts. My mom told me the same thing about not being able to save them all.
Good news (at least to my mom) while I was at Pet Smart, that little guy was no longer there. I'm hoping he went to a good home with a good owner.
