So I saw this today on Pinterest and then found the Etsy link and I have to make a small PSA.
Please do not ever ever ever keep your betta (or any fish for that matter) in a permanent tank this small. EVER.
The seller claims that betta don’t need aeration, filtration, or a lot of water to live a long and healthy life of two years, so a wine bottle is the perfect fashionable tank for them. This is a lie.
Small tanks mean low water temp, which makes betta, a tropical fish, sick. Any good betta tank will have a heater that can be regulated to 80 degrees.
The smallest tank any betta should live in is one gallon, which is nearly three times as much as a wine bottle (or those stupid “betta vases”) will hold. Betta will thrive much better in a three gallon or larger tank.
There is nowhere in this jar for the betta to hide when he’s scared or nap when he’s tired. They do enjoy playing with their humans, but they need some aquarium decor to interact with when you’re not around.
The seller suggests cleaning the tank once a week and that filtration isn’t needed, but bettas eat and poop just like any other fish and create waste that is harmful to them. The small amount of water in this jar should be changed daily, not weekly, to avoid ammonia buildup and remove uneaten food crud. Of course, a daily water change could be avoided with a good sized tank and a nice, slow-current filter.
This person has already sold a number of these upcycled tanks to people who don’t know any better about betta care, and it makes me so sad that their beautiful fish are living unhappy lives.
Reblogging for learning something new and incredibly needed today.
why are people buying pets to be put in something for fucking decoration anyways?? asshats.
seriously fuck people
This picture pisses me off because the betta in that bottle is not beeing portrayed as a pet that needs food, clean water, and a decent aquarium. This betta is being portrayed as an ornament. Something that you slap onto a counter because it looks pretty. This is not okay.
People need to realize that animals are not decoration. They have the same basic needs as you or I.
IF YOU ARE GOING TO GET A PET, YOU ARE OBLIGATED TO TAKE CARE OF IT. Doesnt matter how small or cheap that pet is. You took it to your home, it is your DUTY to give it the care it needs
So my boss told me this week that he can’t hire me as a permanent keeper because Human Resources won’t let him sidestep “the list” (“the list” being a list of people who took and passed the zookeeper test when the position opened up last year. They were promised that if the same position opened up again within the following year, only the people on that list would be considered for the job). My boss really fought to have me hired, but in the end HR just wouldn’t budge. I only have about a month left to work at Phillips Park Zoo and I’m just devastated.
what have you done to my cat, you monster
I love that Picard would just drop these existential truth bombs when he really means “Data, shut up and focus.”
#data is like I AM NOT ABSOLUTELY PERFECT THEREFORE I QUIT AT LIFE#and picard is like no dude srsly get to your post#and data is like NO I’M HORRIBLE THAT’S AN EMPIRICAL FACT#and picard is like jfc this is why i never had children and now i have a robot child with the strength of ten men#look at your life jean-luc look at your choices#and then pat yourself on the back because you are the captain of the motherfucking flagship good job
All of this is correct.
