Talked a lady into a Hawkeye instead of tiny bowl :)

YaY! One small step for betta....

She saw me looking at the betta display & mentioned she had kept one before on her desk in an unheated bowl and he was very sluggish, then died.
I told her about how mine are very active & grew brighter after I took them home to
a heated tank. She seemed genuinely shocked to learn they need warmer temps, have personalities,
and swim around! Then she asked about the difference in tails, and what you can house with them.
I referred her to, and suggested the Hawkeye 2.5 or 5G tank which is affordable...She thanked me for the advice & said she'd order it online. :)

Good job!! The more we inform people of the proper care the more bettas can wind up in better homes!

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Good for you!

I've thought many times about taking some post it notes with me and correcting the info on the display area with the bettas and putting one with this website on it lol.
