Angry You'll NEVER guess what happened to this Betta

I went to Kawaii recently and guess what I saw... A statue with a couple of little holes of water in in it. The water was so green you could barely see in it since these little things were outdoors and got sunlight. I could just barely see a couple of little tiny shapes in the water. There were probably tetras or white clouds or something in that thing! Than I look closer and see a BETTA! It was just like a bowlfull of water that had rotting leaves in it that was pure green and had little fish as well as a Betta in it! I was shocked! They were still alive somehow, too. This was before I got into fish, a few months ago. If I had been into fish than I would have stolen them.

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows

It would be kinda natural for the betta...in their natural habitat its hot, humid, rainy, and theres leaves rotting away...but the sunlight would be bad.

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.

Except in their natural habitat they don't live in a half gallon all the time with other fish..

I missed that...bettas are the most mistreated animal on this planet...I mean I feel bad and sometimes angry for dogs and cats but betta abuse...or fish abuse in general is acceptable...............the world is messed up.

I know it's terrible! Just because fish can't make noise, they automatically don't have feelings? I don't get that logic! A person born unable to speak has fellings... why shouldn't a fish?

Exactly! Humans are just selfish and ignorant.

Sometimes people just end up with a dog or a litter or puppies or kittens but you have to CHOOSE fish, so it's worse in that way >.<

hermit crabs get the crud end of the stick too, if you know how much care they really need, compared to what some kiosks and stores will sell for them
