Yup got all of them lol. The last one would be better if it was much bigger with a heater. I kinda like the idea of that though

I know, right? Some of these tanks are just beautiful, but not good for the fish.

Do you guys know that we tried to get an account on there to kindly point out that some of those things that bettas are kept in are not suitable for a fish..and I got a message to my e-mail saying I was sending spam, by leaving helpful comments, and I know a few of us here tried to do the same thing, to let people know that our beautiful bettas are not Decorations, because if you look in Pinterest in the "Decor" section, you will see "Bettas" on display in all those ways, and it's sick and wrong, just like one of the threads on here the other day, with the IPod speakers, and the shoe, it's gone overboard on how people are coming up with ideas on how to MISTREAT OUR BEAUTIFUL FISH!!

TBH, I'd rather concentrate on the fact that there's people posting here who think a half gallon/quarter gallon is an adequate space for a betta.

Like, I get there's a few really experienced fish folks who use gallon-sized containers and keep the fish clean and alive? But if you haven't kept bettas for years and learned all there is to know..

How many of the under-a-gallon defenders end up posting in the sick fish forum a few weeks later? How many of the sick fish posts are from beginners with a gallon or less? The proportion speaks for itself.

But that's me. Good luck combatting the forces of corporate stupidity, though.

Yup you should, and find some of the links, or copy and paste the pix and do that..I do like that others on Pinterest site are also leaving comments saying what they are doing is Wrong, and not suitable for a betta, that one leaving it in the sun, in that lil jar, WTH..no sense!

What I was going to do is post a picture of the vase that My Rescue Sapphire used to live in, and say in big font
"VASES ARE FOR FLOWERS, NOT FISH!!"

Or "bowls are for soup, not fish"

Don't get me wrong I'm ok with a bowl but 99% of people with a fish in a bowl do not have it at the proper temperature.
