I went to petco and a lady there was with me while I was picking out a new guy (Max) and I said "I want em all" ! She's like,"You wanna know what I do?" I said"ok". She said," I keep some guys in separate vases...blah blah." VASES! ugh..

Its been running like this since 1951.. I really want to do something about it... The worst thing is the people who came to see them saw nothing wrong with the scenario :(

The vido quality isn't bad, the water is just that murky!

They could be big vases with big mouths.. Giving her the benefit of doubt.. >.> Although I don't want to..

Unless those vases are big enough to keep bushes in, I wouldn't keep a betta in there if you paid me.

I love how in the second video they try to make everything all better with pretty music. Bah. Those poor turtles looked like they were drowning because they couldn't find a rock to rest on. :( And in the first video one of the turtles didn't look like it was moving . . . Some of those fish looked like they were getting hole-in-the-head disease.

Yeah, I can handle 2 gallon vases. But somehow I get this sneaking suspicion that people who blithely say, "I keep 'em all in vases!" mean those skinny-necked vases in still life paintings that hold two cups of water. :/ I saw some neat shallow, rectangular vases at my local Jo-Ann's craft store that would have been big enough but of course there was no lid.

I seriously doubt it. She was so lost. I shut her up by saying, "you wanna here my setup?" she said,"sure".

Me: I have a divided heated filtered ten gallon tank thats cycled.

Tell me about it! And this was 2 months ago.. Most of those are missing today -__-..
The turtles all had metabolic bone disease and shell rot.. One poor guy had an eye infection. And they probably were drowning.. There were 25 of them in a 300 gallon! I'm sorry I'm ranting so much but I'm so outraged X(
The music made it seem like some sick joke.. grr
