Just saw the saddest thing on Instagram.....

Looking at bettas on Instagram....saw someone with one male and three females in a 1 gallon bowl :cry then I gave her my advice, she said the pet store guy told her that it was perfectly fine to do that and she was going to take his word over mine. Shatters my heart.

Some people just don't want to learn to care for their fish because to them fish are just toys. When they get bored they throw them away anyhow and get new toys to play with completely disregarding the fact they are living breathing creatures.

just tell the person that when their bettas get sick and ragged, that you can help them fix it. but it will require two more bowls. :I

I'm glad that the folks at my Petsmart are willing to listen to me. And the Pet Supplies Plus should just go ahead and put me on the payroll. Every time I go in, I end up with about half a dozen customers and employees gathered around me as I teach fish class.

My husband has grown to love Bettas almost as much as I do, and he's completely baffled at people's treatment of them. He says it's a shame that so many people treat them like screensavers rather than the beautiful, intelligent creatures that they are. Too bad not everyone can think that way.
