Which betta myth ticks you off the most?

These are all the myths that I have heard from pet store workers.

i think the worst one in my opinion (all of those are bad) is that bettas can be put in a bowl with the plant bulb at the top and you never have to feed it, what a way to die, no food and no acess to the surface . but every hobby has a bad side i suppose, people just need to be re-educated :D

I picked the last one because if people really believe that their fish will only live for a few months, when it dies from one or all of the other myths listed they will not even question it and will make the same mistakes again!

i picked the small bowl one. it seems to be the most popular commited crime in the un-educated betta keeping experience. plus i always like to think of how i would feel if im not only the betta but other pets too.

I picked the last one as that seems to just confirm that they are selling them as "the disposable Pet"

HAHAHHA... agreed... but I voted that small spaces is livable as the worst... its like... can u live in ur bathroom? yes... but are u happy in there... most likely NOT... ppl make me mad... ignorant just makes me pissed! its even worse when you go on youtube... ppl will do ANYTHING to show off their "fighters"... there are ppl who has AMAZING tanks.... but 80% of the time, ppl put them in like a pint sized plastic cup and call it home... its really sad.
