Aww :(
This is really good :D Keep going!
And Mr. Vamp, I went to my pet store when they got new bettas in, and when they opened the boxes, the bettas were all in cups. :P Though that was Petsmart, and they're not well praised for their betta care...

But yeah, I'm loving this. Keep on writing! :)

That's weird. They might have put them in the cups so they can be put ont he shelf. IDK who would ship a fish in a cup O.o

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.

Part 5.
Sorrow filled his face as he stared over at his sister. He sat motionless for only a moment until the human picked him up. Water swished and swayed almost like a hurricane as the human carried him into a strange building. Alexander cowered to the corner with fear flooding in through out his body.

Great story. And I concur. The Betta i purchased at Petsmart came in a plastic cup with lid. Lid fits very tight on the cup and would have zero chance of spillage if it were to tip over during shipment. The Petsmart cup I have can definitely be used for transport.

O....okay :)



Alex looked straight down. He was in some sort of see through thing. Alexander barley had enough room to swim. He had thought he would be in a huge tank like the one he had grown up in. Alexander was stunned in disappointment for a few seconds until he realized the human creature sat the small cup he was confined in next to about 30 other male bettas. All the other bettas were motionless at the bottoms of their cups. They looked like their spirits had been crushed into a million pieces as they stared blankly at Alexander not even bothering to flare. “Yeah,only a few of those bettas make it ever. And if they do they get stuck in bowls for the rest of their lives.” Said the human who had brought him to this horrible place. “This is where,me and all my family will die.” Were the only thought that swept through Alexanders mind.

Bettas are placed in the cups to be sold at the store but they come in tiny bags with just enough water to keep them wet, not even covered.

Here's some pics:










Anyway keep up with the great story!!!!!!!!!
