sooooo... here's the story.
at our petsmart (that's only about 4 months old) we've been struggling with a few water problems and keeping certain fish alive. well we finally figured out the problem, it was copper (and chlorine but we already fixed that problem), and all of our fish in our system suddenly perked right up! yay! so i made the comment to a few coworkers. i said something similar to that all the fish in our system, but mostly the gouramis, were acting like my bettas do. you know, swimming along the glass, being really alert, playing around in the tank, like happy little fish.
so here's where i got angry. after i said that they act like my bettas this certain coworker informed me that bettas don't move around much because they come from tiny little puddles in Thailand.
of course i told him the correct information and that my bettas only stop moving if they're sick.
the reason why i got so angry was because this person is the one person that always informs me of when i do something slightly wrong and about all of these random facts i should know about fish. they've been with the company for over a year and they were telling me this ever so wrong information!?!??!!!! i wonder what else they're telling people about bettas......
i mean sure, a lot of people don't really know the truth about bettas. but for someone who barks out information like they know everything sure doesn't know much..
