Personally i think a betta in a half gallon home, with proper water changes, to be infinitely more humane than an over crowded 2.5... But whatever. Clearly i am in the wrong here for trying to inform someone on the proper care of an animal that isnt focused on in this website. Pardon me.

I just want to say, that if you had read my thread on proper care of ADFs, then you would have been more pressed to upgrade the overstocked tank, rather than the perfectly adequate half gallon. But that is just my opinion, and isnt that what the internet is about? Everyone has their own opinion... Mine just happens to be backed by veterinarians and scientists... But whatever.


Edit: Oh! And be careful of that betta hammock... users here have experienced betta deaths from the wires in them... If you want i can teach you how to make a much safer one from plastic craft mesh...

Ahaha. Okay what's is it then?? Cuz everyone says 1/2 g is horrendous and now you're saying it's not.
What the heck?
And you saying everyone has their opinions but oh by the way mine is scientific completely blows off other people.
So call me cruel and evil and whatever you want but I read the stuff. Ok. And you're not a specialist.
Everything but my soo godawfully over stocked death tank is perfect for the frog.
I'll find help with my hammock elsewhere

I never said it was ideal... I said, if you want to be specific, that it was 'more humane' and 'adequate'... Bettas should be housed in larger tanks, yes, but they are more hardy than ADFs and can tolerate, and sometimes even benefit from, smaller homes. And ADF will not show illness until it is too late to treat for the most part, and so are more fragile, and require more informed care. That is all i am saying here. I know what i am talking about, and if you read the beginning of the forum in my sig, then you would see that i got a lot of my information from webistes written by vets and scientists, everything else i know is from years of personal experience.



But anyway, i am done here, clearly you can't be arsed to listen to my advise... Good luck with your upgrade, and here is hoping your fish dont get sick before then.

Nobody was attacking you for wanting to give out the correct care information, Gizmo - that's admirable. But you don't need to get so angry at people. I'm sure the OP is doing the best she can in her circumstances, with the information she had at the time. She has already stated that she will upgrade as soon as is possible, and I'm sure that she will give her frog the best of care until then.

Remember how confusing it can be for people just starting out on the hobby to be presented with so much information, often conflicting, from petshops and the internet.

Clearly you cannot have rnough respect to see that I am trying.
You're too bullheaded ad stubborn about what you think that you can't understand that I feel like crap about it anyways and you keep telling me how crappy I am.
I read the stuff and I'm doing everything I can

Have a little more respect and understanding.

I tried to make this a happy and cute introduction to my other pets and this is what you take it too.
I'll just delete it.
