do you have any pet peeves?
so this is kinda out of nowhere and probs not what u expected but. the mistreatment of betta fish pisses!!!me!!!!off!!! like putting them in these tiny little bowls or vases for ~aesthetic~ is not cute or quirky it’s!!!abuse!!!!
like this. is not. CUTE. THATS WAY TOO FUCKING SMALL. just bc betta are hardy fish who can survive through a lot does not mean they are happy or healthy surviving this way. betts are probably one of the most mistreated fish and it makes me sad,bc theyre pretty and bc they can survive in small spaces, people think they’re decoration. I get that its hard having them in a bigger tank bc they fight with other fish, but that doesnt mean they deserve such tiny cramped spaces. All those tiny tanks they sell at stores as “betta tanks” and the tiny containers they keep them in make me so mad.
THIS is what a betta tank should look like. They’re fish that came from rice fields, they’re used to wide open spaces. i know it may seem like a waste to get a tank this big for just one fish, but even just a 2 gallon tank would be better than those tiny ass little bowls. (but still not recommended)
And also!! just because they can survive w/o eating for longish amounts of time or in dirty ass water for a long time does not mean!!! they should!! take care of ya goddamn pets
please, if u have or are considering buying a betta, please do research and take care of them properly
