I found out by my bf, that an approximate 100 gallon tank of his......landlord? Has probably 50 goldfish who are huge! He says we can get one for free. I say... gimme a 100 and we'll put a FEW in. not 50. or 100. >.> I do things right haha

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

I was at the petstore yesterday..
And the woman, who was trying to sell another betta, was also giving out the wrong information! I 'asked' ( already knowing) If they needed heaters. She said NO. She said they came from the cold waters of Japan!! I was outraged. Then I said " But they're tropical." She replied with " Oh! They're labeled tropical because they can go with other tropical fish. It doesn't mean they need heaters :B" Obviously, being tropical means they need WARM WATER. Ugh. The stupid chick was ticking me off " They only need room temp :B" Ugh..

I'm sorry to resurrect this thread, but; "cold waters of Japan?" I'm beginning to wonder if bettas are smarter than some humans.

All my fish:

Jimmy- Dark Red and Gray Male Veiltail Betta

I'll be getting more fish soon.

My possibly-could-be stepsister's betta:
Mystery- White, Pink, and Purple Female Veiltail

I was at wally world looking over the females to see if I can't get a sick one on discount (I'mm all for saving a buck here or there) and this family came up and was like "how do we know which ones are which? how do we know if their sick?" I couldn't just stand there and look stupid so I helped them out. Come to fin dout someone at petco said they HAD to have fluval 5 gal for their betta otherwise they'd die. I immediately said that its not needed. Long story short I helped them figure out the right tank (turns out they had a 2.5 gallon at home collecting dust) and helped them pick a healthy fish.

Feel free to message me any questions, I'll try to help the best I can!

Because bettas know all about brand, and if you choose a standard rectangle tank instead of a Fluval, your betta will know, and die just to tell you how cruel you are.

Life.

I know I giggled. Poor lady probably felt like a fool. She didn't believe the person at petco but they were so pushy about it

I'm glad I don't deal with pet stores anymore. I usually just buy things like filter cartridges, nets, thermometers etc. at Walmart. I really don't have time to deal with them. Ill help a customer but I don't deal with employees.

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.
