It seems my poor attempt at changing the subject has failed :/
Maybe I'll give it another go.
Myth: A dog's mouth is cleaner than a humans, and may even have healing properties.
Fact: A dogs mouth can harbor as much if not more bacteria or other infectious organisms as a human. Due to the differences in diet, however, those bacteria are different and some are not harmful to humans which is part of why this myth came about. There is a reason for the term "dog breath," and it certainly doesn't come from a particularly clean mouth.

I am talking about the smaller ones like 4 inch strains but I prefer big Koi ponds for goldfish and a Betta in a 10 would need very few water changes. Another Myth there is only one species of Bettas.Bettas live longer in cold water myth. Bettas come from china and japan/they come from temperate envirements.

Sorry tropical fish not good with cold water meant small ones like genetically dwarfed ones with a lot of water changes.

Depending on the tail type, I used to have a very heavily finned rosetail who was inactive even with proper care due ti his finnagge

Oh sorry I meant if the fin does not weigh them down meant like a short finned healthy Betta in a proper tank has no reason to be inactive.

Im sorry i changed the subject back but Choclatebetta can you please stop saying the same things over and over? Most of us dont agree with you anyway. Also no matter how big the tank and how small the bioload, you are going to want to to tank maitenance at least weekly anyway. So the amount of water changes for a single betta is the same in a five gallon as it is in a ten gallon.

Myth! Bones are good treats for dogs
Fact! Bone shards can get stuck in their digestive tract

5G - 1 betta: orange dalmatian VT male "Ty"
29G - 1 orange fantail goldfish "Goldeen"

Lets all agree to disagree. Another myth freeze dried love and frozen are bad myth. Betta in a 100 gallon would be okay with a monthly change in a smaller tank like a gallon need a change every day or so a bigger tank is always better.
