My Bettas Keep Me
So I've been lurking a while, made a few posts after creating a profile, & now I see a social human interaction section of the forum.
I'm primarily a musician, an animal-lover in general, & I have been known to binge-read entire collections of science journals (although I'm prone to falling into a stack of history, anthro, poetry & world lit books too). You probably wouldn't know my music unless you're a fan of death metal or black metal, although I do compose in other styles under pseudonyms & do various music related work for/with other artists.
My regular grind is at a very large multinational retailer, & many of our locations sell aquatics (some live, many only accessories). I'm not low-level but I'm not salaried management. That being said, I have seen across the internet that there is interest in spreading awareness In The Store for proper care of Bettas, & for that I will offer as much support & direction as possible to any/all retail workers in furthering that cause.
Please PM me if you are a retail worker who cares for Bettas & would like to address this with management at their store. I may be able to help.
I have 10 Bettas - five males & five females - in various settings from 3 gallon tanks to the 10 gallon sorority (as well as a couple triage/hospital tanks at 1.5 gal). I'll post photographs if there's interest, & I am on Instagram.
