The whole experiment is horrible because humans have already figured out that bettas need to breathe air and have at least a gallon of space in order to live. These poor fish are tortured and finally killed for no reason. What is the point of this experiement if humans have already figured out that a betta can't live inside a bottle? It's pointless and a waste of money to do this experiment.

I honestly don't understand what this "expiriment" thing is trying to teach. Are they trying to give the people pets, to record activity for some biology thing? And what video?

basically, it's to try to see if they can create a self-sustaning ecosystem in a bottle, with a plant, some gravel, and a fish. :/ we all know, bettas eat bugs, not roots, so it doesn't work. i've been giving the girl tips on how to make sure her beautiful blue-eyed dalmatian veiltail(with the most stunning tail i've EVER seen. next to cups. o3o) doesn't get too sick, or die on here. x-X

this is the vid.

Oh, ok. And that's just stupid. Someone in college should be able to realize that real ecosystems include so many animals and plants and things, setting up a tiny bottle with a fish that shouldn't even be eating plants... how is this supposed to work?

Yes but she told me any and all comments are appriciated and that she's grateful we're helping her. Advising her tomorrow is probably the best we can do at the moment. She puts daily updates on it so at least we'll be able to see how they're doing.

that is so true. i gave her basic things to look for, for if Nick Jr. is feeling ill. you know, clamped fins, not moving much, ick.... Xd hopefully, all the bettas make it out alive and well! still no clue where they're located, so we can't offer to adopt any unwanteds. :/

There's still no point in this "experiment" because humans already know that it isn't possible to have a betta live in a bottle. At least we're giving all the advice we can give to these people and I'm glad that they're so willing to take the advice. All of those bettas are beautiful and I hope that they make it out of this "experiment" alive. Also did I hear someone say that betta isn't pronounced bet-ta and that it's pronounced bay-ta? Um, sorry darling, but the girl was correct when she said bet-ta.
