When you give a sick, suffering betta back to a pet store - what do you think they do?
Flushing is easy for YOU. It is horribly, horrendously cruel to the betta. Do you think they just float away to heaven? No, they are sucked down like in a horrible tornado, and if they survive being bashed around the pipes they suffocate in a septic tank.
Doing what is best and easiest for our pets is not the same as doing what's easiest for us. I have had to put down many animals (when you keep many animals, what they all have in common is they age and that sometimes when they're sick you can't help them) and while there are ways it might be easier for me - I always have to do what's easiest for THEM. Even if it's not pretty for me.
