I understand you're trying to educate s/he on the proper care and maintenance, but there are gentler ways to do so. Keep In mind they just lost a pet, regardless of whether it was by the book cared for.
How was that rude? It was stern yes, but not necessarily rude. Everything said was true. The fact that the person loved their fish does not change the reasons why the fish died.

I guess I was a little angry at the majority of the very incorrect things the OP was posting to other new members- including how to freeze a betta to "peacefully" euthanize it.
But yeah- that's why it died. Believe me- you dont know mad on this forum if you think that was mean. *shrugs*

Sorry for your loss.

I agree. Sorry pewpewpew, but that was pretty rough. The poor fish did have a small tank and no, it may not have been cleaned enough. And yes, it was skinny, but parasites could easily explain that. It also explains the cloudy eyes and a few raised scales... But this poor person just had their dear little betta die! She watched it quiver and shake and sieze, and now it's gone. And then you totally slam them... kinda harsh. It may have been true, but I agree, there are easier and nicer ways to go about this. ;/

wow, your betta looks very sick to me, take every advice from all the above and make sure you have 100% water change frequently. check for fin rot and velvet/ich if the condition worsens.

Its no harder than anything Ive said to others before, Bettaluver. The tank was filthty, the conditions rough, and it was skinny. I could just as well say things in the same manner to you. I often do to others. People arent used to a more matter-of-fact, frank me.
Anyway, let this thread die. How I respond, especially in a way that wasnt report worthy or any worse than most is not worthy of keeping a thread alive- period.
