yes there was, i forgot her/his user name. a orange HMPK dragon male was stolen from a 16 year old boy, walking around with a beer bottle. she went to retrieve it and talked to his parents, they got him to spit it out, he got angry and went to his room, he kept the male in a tank full of angelfish. and took the betta out, and went back to the room, and flung the male at the floor. when she/he went to grab him and put him in water, he was dead.

this is very sad, that's why i don't allow people (besides one cousin) in my room without being watched, the last time my baby cousin over flowed a tank with pellets sorry to hear about it but at least there okay beautiful betta's though

watch out with teens especially because it is tends to be them, they might grab'em and make them fight and post it on youtube or something. that's why they probably took two of them.

That's horrible.. I know if any of my friends (we're all teens) did that, I would not want to be their friend anymore.. But we're all pretty sane here so I trust them, plus they know how much my animals mean to me.. I don't get how you'd think this is okay? like OBVIOUSLY the person will notice, these people must be really unintelligent..

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

How anyone can even be capable of such cruelty is far beyond me.

the greed on having fish for some reason :I it's pretty sad, they probably did steal something before, they thought they could get away with it

some teens (unlike me) you may call "heartless" to animals, they only care for them selfs, only people

Better yet, don't buy one at all. If you're willing to keep a fish in your mouth to have it, you shouldn't be allowed to own one at all!
