Betta Rant

UGH I am so upset today. It really hurts when you know a betta is in a terrible situation and you can't do anything about it. It is like these people ask advice but then they just experiment without knowing what the heck they are doing. Do they even realize that bettas are living creatures with MINDS? It makes me so sad the bettas have no control over their lives, they are at the mercy of our hands. It just sucks when people choose not to play gently with those hands (metaphorically and literally). I almost think that people should have to pass a test before buying an animal. No one would ever have a pet they didn't think long and hard about.

Ugn just inexperienced "breeders" asking for advice repeatedly and then not taking it repeatedly. This person didn't even condition the bettas :(

it is very frustrating when faced with such a person. sometimes makes you wonder if they are truly in sync with reality and not some made up adventure world in their minds

I am so sorry! It must be tough seeing that not really being able to do anything. Maybe you could secretly call animal control or something if its that bad.

Ugh, sometimes I wonder why people don't stop to think that this little creature is LIVING. They buy animals for entertainment, instead of companionship.


Btw, I just looked at my five gallon hospital tank, and it is so tiny :(
