In the farms they come from, they're already massively bred and if they don't get shipped soon, I *guess* they'll be put down. Either way, they won't stop giving improper care to the bettas. It's just.. Normal for them, and always will be.

Rjlupin, you won't get banned. lol The forum isn't mean enough to ban fish-eaters here. xD I love to eat fish, especially salmon and tilapia; yum... As long as you don't eat bettas, you're fine.

I personally love raw tuna, cured mackarel, BBW eel, raw salmon, whitefish, octopus, squid... pretty much if it swims, I love it.

Except Bettas. Naturally. If anyone tried to eat my baby, I would personally destroy them.

No, I myself am a seafood lover, but that's saltwater fish, well except for salmon. But, bettas are different.
I love the movie Finding Nemo.

I yelled at my dad when he said that he'll eat my betta and make him into a fish taco. urgh.

Have you ever tried dried squid?

I 100% agree with LebronTheBetta. But we can help the bettas in need.

Yes, it was a personal favorite of my exchange student, so we had it in my house a lot for a year. I didn't like it at first, but it grew on me.

I'm on my bf's computer, no luck on mine yet. I can get it to wake up for a few seconds but it's not enough to connect to the internet and email my resume to myself. :( So no PetSmart application yet, but I haven't changed my mind. We're going to the same PetSmart tomorrow, and I will ask there if they are hiring (usually you get a faster response rather than wasting your time filling out the long stupid online application)

It is going to take every ounce of free will not to buy another betta. My friend's Betta recently passed and she still has a 2.5 gallon tank with all the stuff for another Betta... It will be a true test of my self control. I wont buy a pet I can barely afford.

I would say rescues should be free, this way, the shop makes no profit from you unless you buy the equipment needed from the same store.
