This video makes me sad....

So, I was on YouTube, and saw this video. Look how tiny his tank is. I'm pretty sure that's his permanent home due to the plant in it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzUvrKKWQeE

I know. I used to think when it was ok to keep them in tiny bowls when I was in High School (I HONESTLY had no idea), but I would never keep them in there now that I know! Some people aren't really mean, but ignorant like I was.

Poor guy, it looks like he's even started tail biting :( See that big chunk missing from his tail?

Yes, I see that. He also shouldn't be flaring so much. He's probably angry. I look back in regret at the few Bettas I had before I knew better. It didn't occur to me to do research. I just believed what I was told! I'm SO glad I know better now.

Poor guy! But you guys are right, some people just don't research, I remember my first 2 bettas, I had them in tiny bowls barely bigger then the cups in the petsore, because thats what they told me was right at the petsore.

someone should nicely offer him some advice on youtube, and post link to this forum.

Yeah, it looks like that to me too. She said she will instruct in "feeding and care". Like SHE knows anything about it! She's too dumb to know that you shouldn't put male Bettas together. With her "instructions", the fish would be dead in a week!
