It wouldnt hurt to even have this sites link in it so that people can come here and read up and do some more research and find people who can help in all sorts of problems or just to talk about their bettas!
Maybe making a pdf pamphlet so it can uploaded and printed easily?

If people want to help put information together, I can create a PDF pamphlet. Even using pictures of people's bettas who would give permission of the use of their photos from this site as would add some flare (pun intended ) to the pamphlet itself.

Then anyone could take it and print it out and pass it around.

Along with the pamplets, we could go to the petstores and stand by the bettas and give out information, help with what tank they need and what else they need. Also together we need to make a website againest betta abuse and post it on some sites. I have a feeling that we can stop betta abuse.

Not to be a pessimist. I dont think we can stop it outright. Stupidity cant be cured unfortunately. We can make people more aware though and through it diminish the loses and suffering of those beautiful creatures.

I don't support animal terrorists, or idiots who take things into their own hands and leave hateful things around in pet stores that reflect being either mean or an animal terrorist/ activist. (Mind you i'm not saying anyone IS one, just saying in general!)

I guess it depends on what abuse you are speaking of....... and HOW you go about stopping it. Without knowing those things I can't say I can support a comment like the OP... :/

To change something you need a sound plan that doesn't hurt anyone in any way, and a LOT of effort... like full time effort.... that cuts into your life.

-rant done.

There is somone on the forum actually doing this, putting together a Data sheet advising people how to properly take care of a betta, and what they need, and is hoping to be able to distribute it to Petco's and Petsmarts, and the like.. to get the information out there, Also there is a Petition that can be signed on Change.org for Walmart to stop selling tanks under 1 gallon for betta fish, and there is a Facebook page for "Betta Awareness Day" that you can foward to some friends to like and help get some information out there..

But with this picture just print this out, and ask for signatures, on a flyer with this picture, and bring it to a Petsmart/Petco, and ask for a permit to do it, to stand out there for a lil while to attract the consumers going into the Petco's and get as many signatures as possible and send to Change.org, or Care2Causes.org which may also help to get some media attention in some way..It has to be a postitive result and it definately has to be thought out, and starting with that picture on a flyer may help.
