Would it be wrong to buy baby Bettas. Raise them to adulthood and then find them good homes and do that over and over again? Because it would be saving them?
Depends who you ask. Some people are going to tell you that all you are doing is contributing to the cycle of betta abuse. personally, I am all for removing bettas from petco/walmart/petsmart and providing them with a proper home.
I would be more willing to do it with adults though. They are alot stronger and less vunerable then the babies. I tried it 4 times and only 1 made it to adulthood. I think alot of that has to do with the conditions petco keeps them in and the stress of shipping. My petco has the babies off in a corner not even with the adult bettas.
That being said, If I do see them, I will pick one up. I really liked being able to watch my little girl grow up into an adult - white body with red fins.
Her fins looke dhuge on her
SHe has grown a bit more since the above pic. She does have a weird rash thing on her cheeks - not sure if its a breeding dyformity or what.
