It's just a stupid fish people come on.

THIS REALLY ANNOYS ME. I can't stand the things people say about fish.

" they're stupid ''
'' they don't have a memory "
" they can live in tiny spaces "
" they don't feel anything or get scared or worried "
" you dont have to clean their water often "

it's even worse for bettas, people think they're just decorations for their houses. I LOVE MY BETTAS and treat them like they're my children so this offends me so much.

Anyone agree?

Knowledge is more than the mind and body. It's about spirit. It's about understanding the world around you.
There's a path where I live called the Linear Path. Inside that path there's a gazebo that has quotes written all over it by random people who've passed through. This one is my favorite of them all. Those who claim that fish don't need proper care and have bad memory do not understand the world around them. They are blind and need a miricle to let them see again.

Lol! I was 2 seconds away from giving you a stern lecture after seeing your post topic, luckily I read the rest.. I don't know how to think about that. The first 2 things I actually believed before I got my first betta. I think people will come to know those points are false once they keep a fish and take time to observe and understand it, it's a common misunderstanding.. But yeah the other 3 are just cruel :/..

I hate people who take that attitude towards pets. Luckily I havn't experienced many of those people. My family totally accepts my obsession over my fish. When I lost one last month, even my sister who only met him once cried.

Yeah, I hate the "it's just a fish" line. Though, I look at pets as pets and my kids as my kids. There's a difference, but the love is there either way.

I do not keep a lot of pets. I realize that by keeping a pet, it's life is in your hands. To have such an immense responsibility is insane.

I do not treat my pets as my children. I have a different relationship with pets, specifically Betta fish. They are like companions that are hugely dependent on me for their survival.

The last time my Betta died, I felt like a failure as a human being. Almost as if I let my Betta, who trusted me with his life, down.

I am patient and extremely critical when it comes to bringing home any sort of pet. I always intend to care for my pet in such a way that that pet will be by my side for the rest of my life. May be unrealistic, but that's the kind of attitude I hold towards pet keeping and the ideal that I always try to achieve.

that must be rather cool to keep a pufferfish as a pet. are they different from caring for other fish or is puffing up the only difference with the other fish?
