Unhappy Some people shouldn't own bettas

When I got Splash his 10 gal tank I gave my 3 gal to my next door neighbor because he has a ten year old daughter that really likes my betta. Anyhoo today he finally has the time to go out and get the fish and the stuff for it.

So I told him he should only put one in there...rather it be male or female because it's only 3 gallons. Well he said he was thinking about getting two females. I tried telling him to have a sorority of about 6 females you need a bigger tank. He said oh well the pet store will tell me. And I just couldn't believe he was not listening to me.

He has fish experience with oscars but not with bettas at all. I referred him to this site to do some research but I think he's going to do what he wants. I wish there was more I could do. Has anyone else ever had an experience like this? It is just so frusturating.

My Sister is not cut for Bettas either. For some reason the Betta gives the illusion of thriving in 70F. My Mom says its an Opinion Bettas need clean and warm water.

Whhat! My mom listens to what I say so I'm thinking of giving her one of the Bettas I own as a gift of thanks for all she has done for them so far.

There are only some minor inacurcies. But then again Fish Guide says Bettas live in pairs and are Omnivores.

I was at Walmart today picking up a new filter cartidge and a mother and her child, possibly the grandmother too were buying a Betta male, CT. I told them politely that if it was me I would buy at least a 1 gallon tank with light and hood. Instead, they bought a .3 GALLON CUBE and didn't even buy conditioner or food. Poor Betta was a beauty too. Everytime I go to Walmart I try to give advice to beginners.
