The Truth Behind Betta Fish (Graphic)
It all starts from the shipment to the pet stores. Shipped in very tiny bags with barely enough water to survive. Over 50% die from the shipment alone. The ones who do make it, are stored in tiny cups, some stacked on top of each other causing no air for them to breath. They are fed a few pellets then left to be bought, or die. Most catch diseases and suffer without any treatment. They are left to swim in their own filth; ammonia builds up from the waste and suffocates them. This is no way to live. Please, if you see bettas in this condition, complain to the pet store manager. The more complaints, the bigger the chance they will change their ways of treating these beautiful fish.
