Angry Links To How Some Are Keeping Thier Betta's

People, these are Links to Pinterest, and they Are Appalling!! For some who say..Who Cares, they are just Fish!! Need to seriously Be educated..some of these are just a hint of the ways that Betta's are now "Designed" to be fashion accessories, of some sort..

just saw these that were posted by another member so I thought it would be best to show them to all of us here who care enough about how betta's are treated, and maybe how we could help to educate those who are using bettas for thier selfish purposes of just a lil home decor!!

Please, I urge you to take a look, and post your comments and thoughts on this. I see this as abuse!! and Inhumane, and feel that something should be done..Must be done!!

This is horrible! Especially that candle one! If some wax drops down into the water? xX Dead fish.

just on a note though, that one purple VT is gorgeous!

I saw the most horrible thing at Pet Supplies Plus the other day. A lava lamp style tank that held... 1/3 of a gallon of water. Really people!?! .33 of a gallon?

I bet most of the people on there who say 'it's just a fish' also say 'it's just a dog/cat/bird'.

Seriously. The world today is infuriating. Can't wait to get my own shop running within the next 2 years and actually get these people educated >.<

Unfortunately people say "it's just a fish" all too often.

I was fuming at the book-ends. I bet whoever uses them would forget about the fish until they're dead.
