Unhappy YouTube Users

ok I know I am a newb at owning a betta but have anyone ever wanted to check out youtube and marvel at the different beautiful bettas that the owners posted? Well that was what I was hoping for but instead I got kids putting 2 males in a bathtub, some people had barely enough water to cover their fish in a little cup, people WANTING their males to fight, and other horrific images. Other new owners may see these videos and think it is okay to perform these deadly acts and follow in their footsteps. I just hope they have enough sense in their brain and realize they are not "just fish", but a beautful living creature as they once was. It is a sad day in YouTube land!

Awww... *hugs* I know what you mean, I am so sick of these sad videos that I've quit watching betta videos on youtube... I only look at ones of people showing off their nice tanks...

You can always send YouTube an e-mail requesting they remove these videos since they depict animal cruelty and activities illegal in the US (Last I checked any form of animal fighting was prohibited, regardless of being a dog, chicken or fish). Also give them a list of tags so they can easily find the videos like "Betta+Fight".

I know what you mean, I flag videos for animal abuse quite often on youtube.

Sometimes goodbye is a second chance <3

I can't see how someone would want to abuse bettas. It's really sad.

Bettas are like potato chips, you can never have just one.

Flag every video you find as well as sending an email to youtube Mods saying that this is depicting animal abuse. If you don't do anything the videos will continue to stay up where people can view them.

It happens...the big ones are:

Today I'm going to show you how to care for a betta fish, first you need a small bowl..............

Today I'm going to show you how to breed betta fish, just dump the female in the bowl...............

Yeah but fights and other cruel things must be flagged...I'm tempted to search up this stuff and flag and continue flagging.

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.

I tried that earlier, I spent 1h flagging and didn't even make a dent.
