It made me feel really bad because I have never been bullied in real life but as soon as join an internet thing people are attacking me like crazy. All those adults are always talking about bullying, then maybe they should lay off. It nearly ruined my Easter. (The only reason it's not completely ruined is cause it's Easter)that's not something people have a right to take away. the lesson behind this is to watch what you post, because it can really hurt someone.
I am only saying all this because it's a rant thread. Hope no one gets mad at me for saying all this, but it's what I really feel inside
Yikes. I read through it really quick. I can't imagine why anyone would be angry at you posting here about it. It's what this thread is for. I'm sorry your easter was almost ruined. :(
The hardest part about this site is getting people to understand that a lot of information that store people give them is incorrect
. A betta really does need 78*F-86*F temp water. They need no less than one gallon, but some will say no less than 2 (some are serious enthusiasts and say no less than 5 gal, but that's kinda silly ^_~). Some bettas are happier in smaller tanks while some like larger!!
I'll let you in on a little secret: we've recently had a fiasco of sorts regarding a girl on here purchasing too many bettas and not giving them proper homes. Many people seriously believed she was just trolling us (and some still do). We've all been on the defensive since then. She made quite a stir on the site, but things are getting better now.
Again, I'm really sorry your Easter was almost ruined!!! A lot of people on this site are very kind and very helpful. I hope that this run in doesn't ruin the site for you. Happy Easter, by the way! (:
