for a short time, i had my betta in a 1 gallon glass jar. i had just finished cleaning it and it was sitting on the bathroom counter directly in front of the sink. the whole thing slid backwards into the sing and shattered! Riley was swimming around in a sink full of broken glass!!! ahhhhhhh!!!
i had to reach in and pick him up with my bare hands and find some conditioned water to put him in! i think it was his labyrinth organ that saved his life while i was running around screaming! riley now resides in a plastic critter keeper thingy.
another time i was at petsmart looking at bettas, and accidentally knocked one of the cups off the shelf! it broke, and the betta was flopping around on the floor! i picked it up and started screaming, "HELP!!!! I HAVE A FISH IN MY HAND THE CUP BROKE!!!!
". luckily, they got him in water quick enough. again, i think the labyrinth saved him.
and i agree, bettas are slimy!
