This is the first anon of this nature I have ever chosen to publish. But I feel that since my audience is expanding I should address this issue. I am well aware that bettas are hardy fish and able to survive in conditions that other animals would quickly perish when exposed to. I am also aware my advice is not always welcome. The quick links I give are in no means meant to offend anyone, and I will never continue to pester or push my thoughts on anyone else. I never reblog a post that already has received advice, nor have I ever once cursed or put down on those I do not agree with. I simply am putting this information out there in the hopes to educate those who would be willing to make the change. There is no way to know who those people are, and so I reach out to everyone. I stand firm in my belief that owning a pet is making a promise to provide the best care possible for that animal, no matter the species. My experiences have shown me the amazing things proper husbandry can do for an animal, and it is my goal to change the lives of as many animals as I can. Each life to me is worth it, and every time I see a change made I am overwhelmed with emotion. No amount of prodding will cause me to cease this journey I’m on. I hope that my advice does not hurt anyone, as it is only meant to spread the word about the species that has brought me so much joy.
^ fuck yes. you’re awesome.
and to the anon addressing they live in “rice patties, small streams, and even drains”, i don’t think you realize how large these rice patties are…
