i was talking more along the lines of their breeders. they're often kept in the same size jars until they're being spawned. those, sometimes, are there their whole lives.

And they need to behave too. A public forum is no place for bad mouthing others. Take it private or stay off the computer.
Your being a hypocrite you call me out and call me an a$$ and you attack me I should contact a moderator on you for attackin a member.

I suggest you worry more about the plank in your eye instead of the splinter in theirs.
Umm excuse me?
I wasn't saying it was fact, just what I heard and I also never said I believed it.
Seems like a lot of people are just jumping to assumptions without thinking...
Starting to agreed with whoever said something about locking this post. This whole thread is nonsense.....

Just seems like people are getting hostile and throwing words around from what I've read but I could be mistaken.

There is a difference between dogs kept in a small cage and a betta kept in a gallon container. I keep most of mine in gallon and gallon and a half kritter keepers and they are well taken care of. As Basement Bettas stated, keep the water clean and they're fine. She is an IBC breeder and knows what she's talking about.

imo jarring betta fry is nowhere near the conditions of some backyard dog breeding operations. i used to live down the street from someone who had a row of chicken coops in his backyard. i didn't think anything of it until i walked by one day and saw a beagle puppy in each compartment. right then and there i called the humane society, and the next day they shut the guy down and took every animal out of those horrible conditions. that's basically the equivalent of keeping betta fry in a shot glass, which to my knowledge no betta breeder has ever attempted.
