Youtube Bettas make me want to Vomit

On a whim decided to search youtube bettas this past week and WTF!!!

This guy actually is proud of himself posting clips of this garbage... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9EzMq...eature=related


Love the passion of youtube betta owners with their responses tho

This is cruelty! wanna know why he died-
1- A common death is : such crap living conditions. Oh come on, in a cup! its sick!
2- Tapping- This freaking causes stress, and if there is nowhere to hide they often die from it. I don't see any hiding places in your tank.
3- Betta's are TROPICAL fish, where is your heater?
4- He may have even suffocated in his own crap!
5- Betta's also breathe oxygen from the surface but require a well oxygenated tank, that's probably just tap water.

Monster!

Ugh, it makes me cringe that I used to think it was okay to keep Bettas in tiny bowls. I had about 3 throughout high school... I'm glad I know better now. I can't believe that some people can be told the truth but ignore it. I'm sure that guy has been told OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

The tapping and mirror make it so much worse, from ignorant to purposely cruel.


Gee I wonder why my fish doesn't do anything exciting, I give him the best possible living conditions and everything he needs. Oh right I forgot that they like loud unknown noises...



A 10 gallon tank set is like $30? Maybe $50 after a heater and gravel. A nice little 5 gallon set is less. If you don't have that amount of money to invest in a pet you should probably focus on other things.

Indeed, this moron owner made things 10x worse by deliberately tapping the table to startle his pet than followed it up with a mirror. That is just plain stupid.

Since he obviously has web access (uploading his youtube video), the guy never took a few seconds of his time to do a quick google search on how to care for his pet, just plain ignorant individual....
