There's such a thing as making another email... I've been on many sites and moderated for a few of them. I know all the tricks in the book.
But I am going to not pursue this. I am going to back off. Tell Popcorn that I sincerely hope she does not get any more bettas. When a person brings an animal into their lives, they assume responsibility for it. They become its God and its nature and its world. Fish are not playthings. They are living beings who can feel pain and fear and discomfort.
However, too often, they are treated like toys by people. See a fish in the store? It is shiny and new and pretty. The old fish is forgotten and at that moment, the person must possess the new fish. After a while, they get bored. See another fish. It's different, interesting, better than the old. Cycle repeats. Soon, they are over their head and cannot provide the proper care for any of them. They do not mean to be intentionally cruel. But it is still cruel to the fish.
With all that being said, I cannot stop her from getting any more bettas. That is her choice and the choice of her parents and that of the rest of her family.
