Because nothing says true love quite like a giant robot.
"A is for…"
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
If you think animals are treated so fucking well when they are killed would you be willing to trade positions with them?
Didn’t fucking think so.
Take your yuppie humane bullshit and blow it out your fucking ass dickweeds.
the fuck are you talking about, “real food”…
OHHHH, I get it, vegan food isn’t “real food”!
here I am just eating imaginary food for the past year…
look at all this imaginary food, here let me just have some imaginary bananas
where did my fOOD GO
shit shit shit, if my FOOD was imaginary, that must mean VEGANS…
OH GOD, OH GOD SOMEONE HELP ME WhAT IS HAPpENINGGG AAAAAAAGH
"i just don’t like preachy vegans"
and i don’t like hearing about which dead animals you like to eat, yet here we are.
I’ve come to hate the words “kind” and “compassionate” so much. It’s not kind to treat others with basic decency. It’s not compassionate to refuse to exploit the most vulnerable. I’m nothing special. I’m not a superior being of light. I’m not full of love and benevolence. I’m just trying to do what I must. And it’s only fair I expect others to do the same.
Are you fucking kidding me?!?!!? @anarchytattoo I hope you get your fucking license ripped away from you. This is beyond wrong and unprofessional. You fucking scumbag.
You should die in a fire
Why the fuck is shit like this still happening
people are so fucking shitty
