I picked the one where they only need to eat a couple times a week. A fasting is okay every now and then or a weekly fasting but for the fish to be eating only about 3-4 meals a week is terrible. And a lot of people would probably give them to little even for a regular feeling or start to feel bad, think their fish looks hungry, and go overboard with it. My second choice is the cold water one. Even if someone doesnt know that they are tropical fish you would think they would give the fish warmer water if it feels too cold.

I heard from a petstore employee that you never have to feed Bettas because they eat their own poop...and because they eat their own poop, you never need to change the water either!
Not only that fact that this is just plain WRONG WRONG WRONG. But, how do they poop in the frist place to start eating poop? Do you not have to have something in your system to poop to begin with?

Oh yes, and I picked the "they only live a few months" because it makes people not question when their Betta dies after two months because they think it is natural. It causes them to never learn more about their care sense they think they are doing everything right.

I picked the "Live for a few months" option. I see soo many goddamn kids who either get Bettas or comets from their parents because they won't shut up about wanting a dog/cat/hamster/whatever.

Their parents compensate getting a dog/cat that will last for 20ish years and instead getting a fish in a teeny tiny tank (especially those 2 Gallon "goldfish starter kits") in hopes that it will die quickly so they won't have to spend any more money on it, and their kid will use the fish to tide themselves over from "OMG WANT A PET" syndrome

Some pet store workers really tick me off because almost every word that comes out of their mouth is a lie. When you are commited to your fish it's so annoying sometimes because they always try to convince you that your setup is wrong or to add something else to the water or care for them differently....Ugh I get so mad sometimes!
