I've seen a similar system at a local petsmart--each fish was in a small square above the stock tanks, and though they were separated they were all in the same flow through system. These fish had some of the worst parasite infestations I had ever seen, along with horrific bacterial problems. They discontinued this system in Petsmarts because they lost huge amounts of stock.
im sorry. this comment might seem very rude but i have to state my opinion.
i hate your negative comments! i really do because every post i make is SOMETIMES reasonable. sometimes they arent and i will realize it. but thats not the point, my Point is everytime i ask something or think of something to say YOU
just doubt me and think about the "(PRACTICAL)"
WAY OF DOING THINGS!! now instead of trying to make my idea better and have input on the suggestion, you say and quote "(I DONT THINK THATS PRACTICAL)"
i take it very offensive that you keep putting my idea down and say its not PRACTICAL. i understand that it could use some work but if you feel it does then say something to make it better! not something that will make everyone think "oh well just another stupid idea that'll never work".
so if you have no way of trying to make it a little better then I DONT WANT YOUR INPUT AT ALL.
YES MY COMMENT TO YOU IS VERY RUDE BUT IM THINK YOU ARE VERY RUDE FOR TRYING TO PUT ME AND MY IDEA IN THE DUST!
its kind of hard to believe your (STORY)/experience with my idea in a pet-smart. ugh
it doesnt have to be like that pet-mart store if the employees want to keep their jobs. ALL PEOPLE ARE NOT LIKE THAT !!!. they will take care of theses overstocked fish coming in. the could always treat them. but ALL bettas dont come in diseased or with an infection that could kill. actually its very rare that bettas are diseased (WHEN THEY GET IN THE PET STORE)!!
the bettas in the store usually are healthy when they come in and they develop sicknesses and diseases.
