Default Re: Betta Cruelty

I notice that some of the individuals that have posted their Betta cruelty feelings in past threads have not responded in this debate. I wonder why not? This is the place to do it and have a focused audience that will respond.

Maybe they are feeling that this is a thread to "provoke" and choose not to respond....Those that wish to "discuss" are certainly free to do so...

I think its totally cruel...but where would they put all th bettas....I doubt they would make separate tanks for everyone. My LFS puts them in tanks with other fish with maybe 4 in little bowls. I think they should only keep how many they can sell. If there gunna keep them in tiny bowls. & they should tell people that they like bigger tanks.

I get the impression that you are indeed wise and I think you like to "fight" too.

PS: Hopefully taken in good humor.

Actually...I hate to fight...it tires me out! At my age, I need peace and quiet! However, when the need arises, I'm not easily intimidated....

I can completely agree with you on this. This is the idea that i have been thinking of and backing up for a long time. My LFS has like 2 large shelves of these fish in the little cups. I simply am thinking of a way to propose this to my LFS.

* Can anyone here make an official proposal peice of paper that we can print and fill out or give us a basic guidline of what to type and show to the LFS?
