- OUCH !!! Oh- My eyes...
seen such beautiful fish or a beautiful lady! (Not necessarily in
GREAT job on this site. Keep going,
Don't worry, no questions, only praises and to thank you for being there.
I lost 2 bettas; I RESCUED them from Walmart. I am going to
have a talk with the buyer. No information, no directions, no
anything. I can only imagine how many of the poor things died after
other buyers took them home. I am sure people buy them only with the
thought they are so beautiful, but with no idea of how to care for them.
I have had these fish before, but have never seen them die so
I am SO THANKFUL for your site. So knowledgeable and very
informative - and with a sense of humor, yet!
I would like to suggest to the Walmart store they list your website right
on a sticker on the bags the fish are placed in to take home but I WOULD
NOT do this without your permission, of course (then you could take the
concept from there.) So let me know. If I
knew about your site before this, maybe I could have saved the 2 poor
little guys who died so suddenly on me (they both died with the very
inflamed red gills).
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR SITE. I plan on getting all of
the items you listed and keep them on hand. I MAY go back and
rescue a few more of those poor things at that particular store, because I
feel they all may have the same condition, although I still have one of
the little guys left and he is doing fine.
I am sure you have helped so many other people as well as myself. I
want you to know how much I, for one APPRECIATE ALL OF YOUR WORK. I
can only imagine the hours you spent putting your site together.
I hope to tune into your talk show at a later date.
With my sincere thanks and great respect for your very, very helpful site!
Thank you for a terrific betta website! My
co-worker had received a betta fish in a vase with a plant in it and
they had told her to use only distilled water. The fish is still alive
and doing pretty good, although I am giving her a hard time to change
the water every week. Sometimes she doesn't do it for two weeks, so I do
it. Poor fish!
Now I bought 2 bettas in at Petco's in
Westminster. One looks really good, but the other one looked very bad
and half dead in a dirty little cup with a lot of stuff floating
around... that's why I bought him. The store said they feed
them only once or twice a week. After reading your article how to care
for a betta, I find this very sad.
Unfortunately I read your article about easing the
betta into his new environment after I put them in their new bowls. I
also used distilled water, since I didn't know any better. They seem to
like it better than the little cups and got used to it pretty
quick. I will, however, use Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water from
now on and check the PH level in the bowl.
Thanks again for all the great information :))
I will recommend your website to all my co-workers and our students who
is great. I am a first time Betta buyer and your site is awesome.
It contains everything I need to make my fish the happiest and
healthiest betta in the world. Your pictures are great and have
given me many ideas on what I want my tank to look like and what I want
to breed my Bettas to look like!
Brains on OVERLOAD!!!
Man o Man I can not believe
the information I have learned in the past two days since I have found
your web site. I have an interest in breeding my long time spoiled
rotten betta Swipper, but didn't realize he may be to big or old.
I have set his vase, yes plant and vase. (cleaned weekly, feed very
well, and he runs the show basically) next to a couple of girls I picked
up a couple of weeks ago.(...) Thank you so much for all the information
I have, and will continue to learn from you.
- You are so incredible
Hello, my name is Emily
(aka Elle). I am
14 years old and I have decided to breed bettas. My dad did this when he
was younger and with him inspiring me I was hooked. I have to tell you
that you have the most informative site. I have looked at over 50
websites and they all have a little bit here and a little bit there, but
your site has everything!!!!!!!!! I have tons of questions to ask you,
but I wont. :) I just spent the last 5 hours preparing for my new bettas
I will be receiving this week. I wish I would had found your site sooner
though. I just recently did. AFTER I had set-up my tank, and the most
ironic thing is I set it up exactly like you said...(...) I am SO
excited if you can't already tell. Well I have definitely talked enough.
Thank you again Faith.
