Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

"Most fish enjoy companionship. If you have a single fish, check with friends and neighbors to find another loner to adopt—but don't support the fish trade by going to a dealer."

You know, just any fish will do XD Oh PETA, all your good points are always drowned in stupid.

Some of the betta species I keep are essentially nearly extinct in the wild. This is not due to capture for the aquarium trade but is rather the result of habitat destruction.

Without hobbyist breeding programs, these species would most likely disappear for good.

While I do not agree with some of the practices used to obtain wild-caught stock, in some cases life in an aquarium is better than slow extinction.

Also I'm sure if my fish were so unhappy they wouldn't be spawning as frequently as they do. I have a few wild-caught species and they have adapted very well to life in my tanks.

I think they were saying saltwater but I think I saw a goldfish picture. Littl bett what is the fish on your avatar? Adapting to life in an aquarium can be hard but when threy do they live longer? What species do you keep? PETA knows nothing about fish ounce they said bettas need ten gallon minimum. Another time they said fish use tools.

It's one of my Betta persephone fry. Extremely endangered in the wild with I believe only one or two locations left.

Nice fish you seem like you get good bettas and take excellent care and help the species. My parents will not let mbreed bettas too many tanks and not much live food.
