Oh, I guess my computer zoned out on that part. My computer froze when the lady brought the scissors up to the bag and it unfroze as she helped the little girl dump the fish in.

The only thing that amuses me about them is the "sand art" in the bottom (I like sand art I have plenty of baby food jars from school fairs as evidence). I just wonder what they used to make it stay in tact when it was flipped upside down and of course I can't find a good pic online. To be honest that was the only part that I liked about the tank, whether I was a fish owner or not.

The only information that was right was that bettas get to know you and reconise you.

Bettas are like potato chips, you can never have just one.

Puddle fish, that live in the footprints of workers? And to think she is a "vice-president", how could this even come about. This video just angers me.

And, good story by the way, I enjoyed it a lot.

If I had been in the audience... I would have ripped that over brightened fake smile of that womans face.

Drax is a pig he's bite my fingers off if I just gave him ONE pellet a day. Plus... I have Drax all alone in my 10gal... and he USES EVERY INCH OF IT! From top to bottom he hovers around every nook and cranny exploring!

Showed the vid to my mother even she thought it was a cheap death trap.

If I ever see one of those things at someones house... Well... ... I can't really post what I'd do because it could only be described using profanity XD.

To be honest... if your a cheapo... don't you guys keep saying you can find large plastic clear bins at wallmart for like under 10$? Probably half the price of those cubes of terror but SOO much larger...

Still... ONE PELLET? I hope 'Buddy' eats the girls hands off >,>

btw... Loved the short story! *Lame Response buuut* I love happy endings!

If they were going to video (Was that on TV?) they could've atleast gotten to right facts. The stuff stuck to the bottom is really stupid. I mean it's really piontless to have gravel, but the not put it in the fish tank. That's basically what AquaBlock (what a stupid name) did.

Nice story!
Gosh, that lady is such a liar! I think someone needs to go on that show and reveal all the true facts about Bettas!
One. Pellet. A. Day?
Cleaning once a month?
Poo and uneaten food sinks (well, there will be no uneaten food, because it's only one pellet!), and when you don't empty the whole thing, that stuff is gonna contaminate the water!
Evil lady. :(
