RIDICULOUS!

I was searching the net for info on Bettas and I came across this:
Bettas do fine in these cups. They eat well and actually do better in cups and fish bowls, when given proper care, than they do in most aquariums. Bettas are the best fish for small containers.

Umm......... I think that should come back down to Earth. Because their heads are up in space. They can't see or breath up there so they have NO clue what they are talking about or doing. Here is something more they said:


Only one Male Betta in a large fish bowl alone or with a few Ghost Shrimp, a couple of Aquatic Snails, and some Java Ferns or some Aponogeton plants. We have noticed that sometimes a Male Betta will attack and kill Ghost Shrimp, and sometimes Aquatic Snails will eat Aponogeton plants, but the Aquatic Snails do not seem to have an appetite for the Java Ferns. We recommend keeping a Betta in a fish bowl that will hold at least one gallon of water.

Still people the bowl would be too crowed. With that much stuff the betta would not even be about to move! Insane. I also read that people keep their bettas on the stove to keep them warm! They could die.
something more:

Bettas usually do fine in a temperature range of 65 to 80 degrees F. But may do best in range of 70 to 75 degrees F.

They oviously don't know bettas that well. It is not that hard to figure out that it is 78 degrees F that they should be kept at. Another clip:

Floating Food and Freeze Dried Blood Worms both available in most places that pet fish are sold. Bettas are not an active fish, so they don't require as much oxygen or as much food as energetic active fish do.

Since when are betta not active. They can not say that. All bettas are different. Thats it. But wasn't that interesting. In a bad way. They say they are experts at this. Doesn't look like it.
