On youtube I saw a care video where someone was saying that they fed their Betta raw beef and was recommending it to people. I politely explained that Bettas can't properly digest meat, and pellets specifically designed for them and frozen fish foods were best to be chosen. I felt sorry for the poor Betta, he may have been in a 10 gallon tank, but he looked nearly dead just sitting in a corner being extremely bloated with fin rot.
Well, the person who made this video just replied to my comment.
< censured > PLEASE.
this fish is alive and healthy thank ya vereh much. he was getting sick on flakes so i fed him meat. blood worms are sold especially for betas so....suck my < censured > :) have a good one
I feel sorry for this persons Betta, but really if they're going to respond like this and ignore advice on proper care why post a Betta care video? Just shows you can't trust anyone on the internet...
If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows
That is really sad... Especially since he or she didn't have to act like that. He or she could of said something like "Thanks for the advice, but he was getting sick on flakes. So even though I'm greatful you care, he's doing well on what I'm giving him." Something that wasn't so rude </3...

Most of the people on Youtube that I've met are rude and I don't think that they deserve to be on the site if they can't be mature. This person didn't have any right to attack you for simply giving advice. Did you let the person know that he/she is being rude and had no right to snap over your suggestion? This person is probably an immature brat who doesn't deserve to own an animal if he/she isn't willing to take suggestions from someone who is most likely more educated when it comes to animals. Don't take this behavior personally because some people don't have people skills.
I remeber awhile ago someone made a thread about "weird" things they fed their bettas. Most listed shrimp, fish, and chicken. I always wondered about raw beef though. I fed mine once a very small piece of tuna (from the can). They liked it but it made the water very messy.

youtube is full of dummies and trolls. i make it a point to go on there and educate people, and rarely do i find rude people anymore. most people actually thank me for the advice, then message me their updated videos. most take my advice and upgrade their bettas and are happy to see how much happier their little friend is. i had a guy yesterday give me a shout-out when i told him Cory Cats like groups, rather than being alone, and asked me advice on stocking his 20 gallon with betta-friendly fish.
