Ah, PJ's Pets. I have one near my house, and I consider it my LPS. It's where I got my Imbellis from. . .

:l Regardless Bettas there are treated poorly, I'll go add my comment later.

Change once a month! Feed once a week! No heater required!) and make our concerns realised.
This times a million! I wish we could do something like that, it would be great for the fish, and easy to push the stores into joining in, because if they're telling people how to REALLY take care of betta, they would make more money off sales. Theoretically....

In the UK it's illegal to sell anything under 1 gallon as a fish home because it's considered ANIMAL CRUELTY. >__> that should say something, like that this country is pretty backwards compared to them (fish care wise).

Edit: just found their Facebook page and gave them a piece of my mind. :)

Haha. I considered making it a thousand times in my head. I started by thinking of making an Aquatic Pets Awareness Day, to educate people about all fish/aquatic animals. Then I realised I don't know enough about ALL species, so if I did ever get around to making something then I'd need a lot of help. I'd rather focus on fish I know really well: bettas. :)

If I ever did make something, would you guys be interested in participating? I always thought it would be relevant to do on the first day of summer because that's when people think of water and beaches and that leads to thoughts about fish... I'd do it on FaceBook and organize it there, of course.

I'm tempted to leave little "visit bettafish.com" cards where the betta are at petsmart. But would this lead to tons of website spam, or is it a good idea?

I think focusing on betta's is a good idea. They're the ones that are being sold as "throw away pets"

I wouldn't leave JUST the website but perhaps a myth and fact, then website. Like...

MYTH: Betta fish prefer living in small spaces.
FACT: Betta fish evolved to survive in small spaces during extreme circumstances but thrive and need at least a gallon of water to live to healthily.

I wanted to make posters like this for Betta Fish Awareness Day and leave them all over pet/fish stores or on sign posts. Haha.

I think I may make that FaceBook page.
