People, please, be civil. This is a forum where we share our common hobby. There's no need to get nasty over some misunderstanding.
I'm sure everyone means well........
; this is a forum made of betta lovers and will always be against irresponsible actions towards bettas. Please try to understand that and not get easily offended by their assumptions.
If you feel they've misunderstood, simply explain. Please, no provocative comments...... Panthera did say "This may come off as rude to some,...
" And Turtle said "Lol we weren't trying to jump on anyone, just trying to make sure they have the right info ;)
". To me this implies that Panthera was trying to make an offensive statement polite and turtle was trying to confirm their good intentions.
; try to understand an OP's position (not just drkeni9ma) as a beginner. There are many aspects that articles don't explain. You can read all you like, but you will never know how it really is until you've tried. So please don't jump into negative conclusions. And obviously drkeni9ma was confused because he/she experienced something different to what was explained in articles (the problem might have been that he/she didn't state all the specific confusions earlier - male and female getting along after spawning). How can a newbie know what possibilities to expect and they must read of such aspects. Or how could they know if they've read enough or not. It's our job to explain these things (without judging/provocative accusations) so they would know what info to look for.
Sorry for all this. I simply don't like such disputes in a forum where we all should be like a family, always helping one another - betta loving family.
