I also heard chasing the fish with a net every ounce in a while is good exercise.
too much of it is bad though....found it out firsthand had a beautiful purple HMPK who chased his tankmates till he exhausted himself to death.

It's just stress for the betta and the other fish, if you ask me. My dudes are fine chasing each other through the divider, no one gets hurt that way and they can still have their fun.

Yeah clean water, stimulation, exercise, and meaty diet preferably varied. An average bowls lacks all of those.

I think that "fish are great party favors" is one. I got my first from a party. Someone I knew brought it home for me because I had been doing research and really wanted one. I appreciated them thinking of me, but too many die that way. Thankfully mine is still alive. :)

Fish do make great party favors if the people who take them have the proper supplies for care.

Myth: All shelter dogs are mutts.

A lot of people know the truth- but there are still some that think they're no good mixed breeds.

Lots of purebreds, actually.
And there's nothing wrong with a mix. <3

no dog is dangerous simply for its breed or mix thereof. the danger comes when people specifically mix "tough" or "mean" breeds to accentuate certain characteristics, and that's only because the kind of people who usually do such things are the kind who mistreat their dogs to turn them into fighters, junk dogs or other dangerous "roles"
