yes why else would i have so many problems to post
“omg you reblogged my post and now people are correcting me about my fish”
“really who cares its just a fish”
“Shut up omg i kno i dont take good care of my fish but i still LOVE IT”
“omfg betas dont need more than a gallon the petstore said stfu”
“who do u even fucking think you are get off the tags and shut the hell up about fish”
“Look guise I put my fish in a vodka bottle #hipster #cute #grunge”
I AM SO SICK OF PEOPLE FUCKING TREATING BETTAS LIKE SHIT. I’m actually sick to my stomach. Who the FUCK puts a LIVING ANIMAL in a fucking VODKA bottle?! A sick twisted cunt does that, thats who. How would you fucking like it if I made you live in a closet until you died? Would that be ‘badass’, or ‘cool’? No. Fuck no. So why would you ever do that to something else? Betta’s are NOT just fish. They are living, breathing, feeling, creatures. They deserve to live the best life they can get. If you can’t take care of your fucking pet, give it to someone who can.
Now, don’t get me wrong, betta’s can live in a LARGER bowl without a filter, IF you do frequent water changes. But they ARE tropical fish, and they can only thrive in higher tempratures. The operative word being THRIVE. They can survive in cold water, but then again, so can you.
If you don’t intend on taking proper care of them, DON’T GET ONE. Do the fish a favor, and let someone who will ACTUALLY take care of it.
Well, we can try.
Betta lovers! Your ~*dreams*~ have come true!
Alright, we’ve all been there: we desperately love our fish, but ugh! Getting merch for fish so wonderful, varied, and unique as our pets is frustrating and expensive. Never fear! Effie’s here!
Uncreativeart, my lovely friend and fellow fish keeper, is currently selling betta splendens charms that can be used as phone charms, necklace pendants, zipper pulls, keychains, pins or anything else you can dream up!
From the artist:
All charms are hand crafted by yours truly.
All charms are made from plastic, and coated with a clear varnish to keep the design from fading, being damaged by rain or other liquids, or staining.
They include a lanyard, jump ring, and a tiny bell in various color combinations.
Charms are made as they are ordered (mostly to avoid this overstocking mess)!
If you keep them forever I will worship you.
Here’s the deal:
Template Fish: These fish are the six depicted above. They are non-custom but are absolutely awesome! The watermark will not be on your order. These are the cheapest option to show your betta love.
Custom Colored: These fish get a loving color job based on your fish’s coloration and basic tail type. Once a clear image of your choosing is provided for reference, the fish is colored per the design. This is a cheaper option.
Custom Bodied: Sometimes, there’s just that one characteristic of our fishy babies that can’t be generalized- those too-close eyes, that wonky tail with the one weird spot at the end, and those ventrals that curl all around and just look silly!
Custom designs capture your fish a bit more intensely- whether it be their different or unique tail or their body shape (for a king, short-bodied PK or DBT). This option, due to it’s intensive and custom nature, is a more expensive one.
These charms are perfect for:
Memorializing a lost pet!
Honoring your best fishy bro!
Giving as a gift to a fish lover!
Decoration around (but not in!) your tank!
Show your passion and your pet a little bit of love with these cyoot charms!

Hello. How are you?
Ready to learn?
Too fucking bad.
Hi there. I’m a fish keeper, with many years under my belt, many fish, many different tanks and someone who loves to research.
You’re gonna listen for a sec, alright? Or read, I guess, but whatever.
We need a chat, I think. About betta splendens and their homes, because too often I see too many bitching about something they genuinely don’t understand.
“Oh but I understand bettas, I’m a keeper, I belong to a FORuM!one!!”
I’m going to say this, and if it’s all that you remember, that’s fine: Bowls aren’t the problem.
Betta splendens can live in bowls. They can thrive in bowls. If you do it right. And hey- not all bowls are small, alright? People on the tag attack bowls senselessly. The BOWL is not the problem.
Here’s why you think bowls are bad:
Hey kiddos, the next few posts have strong language in them (sorrryyy!) so please keep that in mind. I have been requested to post them after a few messages and anons in response to the growing level of unkindness, rudeness, and overall total misinformation on the #betta and #betta fish tags.
Seems like we really do have some #bettafishproblems these days LOL
“Betta fish come from shallow puddl-“
“Bettas should only be fed once a wee-“
“Breeding bettas is easy and you make lots of money-“
“You dont have to change the water very ofte-“
“They’re just stupid fish who cares”
Well that’s just stupid
