Does anybody else hate when...

Does anyone else hate it when people call doubletails twin tails? It drives me crazy. I like the names to be said right. I explained it to my friend. I hope she makes her new betta happy :) I'm helping her with him

Ugg yes! It's almost like when PetSmart sells all their Plakat's as Dragon Scale because apparently it's "cooler", yeah well sure it does sound cooler but you totally mislabeled more than half your fish and yet again mislead your buyers >.>

Today my petstore had the most gorgeous bettas, a half-moon turquoise butterfly male, and a PURPLE butterfly vt (totally purple, solid real purple). But there were two dead ones and most of them had finrot :(

It bothers me too! The chain petstore here advertises them as twin tails AND says they need salt to survive...

that's so horrible for them! I feel soo bad for betas. The purple veiltail had purple shimmer, and also pastel purple fins, it was real purple :)

Yep. Ringo's a doubletail, and I got him at a little mall store. He was one of two DTs, oh excuse me, TWIN tails. I was like "oooh, nice doubletails!" and the employee looked rather puzzled. Like I had five noses or something.

I hate when people say halfmoon plakat doubletail

or male betta rather than veiltail

oh man, theres so many more! LOL I really hate the DS vs. HMPK/PK thing too

oh and last but not least, calling them saimese fighters rather than bettas. Really? Lol They are fighters, but that's not their names.
