That's the sad thing. You try to be nice and give someone something for an animal and they don't want to properly care for it. That's why I no longer give anything to anyone unless it's family and I can bug them until they listen to me. (LOL) My nieces love bettas and they're step dad tried to tell them not to do so many water changes and I had to scold him for it. They're doing the right things but my bro in law just... Y'know.

Choc, with my many years as a listener since young, to simplify my point, people are born with a compassion and empathy or not. It is very hard for either to change.

Further, I have read the court transcripts describing how they treated (tortured & killed) the losing dogs. Michael wants his money flow continuing. The team that wants him and the fans that watch him should be ashamed. It's just a game. Life isn't.

My response to that is "I bet Hitler said the same thing about the Jews." I saw that on a post here and think it fits perfectly. Fish and humans aren't exactly the same thing, but it all comes down to ignorance and a complete lack of compassion for life.

Honestly.. I would take the bowl back and say you don't want to play a part in fish death and abuse. That guy is sick.

Agreed. It's disturbing that he's perfectly OK with exposing his daughter to that kind of attitude toward living things. When I was a child I hated seeing all the dead and dying fish at the store... Especially when the ones that were still alive were munching on the dead ones.. I was also heartbroken when my first Betta in Elementary school died (my cat killed him while I was at camp because my parents didn't care for him like I asked them to, which included keeping the darn cat out of my room! They knew she loved to play with the fish (I also had a "paws off" aquarium decoration sign)).
