Bought a friend since I don’t have any lol.
okay you’re gonna kill your friend if you keep it in a motherfucking jam jar.
educate yourself on betta splendens as a species of fish, then educate yourself on PROPER betta care. Buy a decent sized tank, an appropriate filter and heater if necessary, educate yourself on water quality, diet, illness and tank maintentance and then plant your tank! not only will your betta be a lot happier, it will live a lot longer and you won’t be unknowingly committing an act of animal cruelty.

Thanks for tagging me; here’s a cheap emergency guide for people in this situation. In the future though, try to be a little softer with the way you word things, okay? A lot of people are fed crap by pet stores, and have never heard about the way to care for their friend. That was the word used - friend - and I’m assuming OP legitimately feels that way. Better to help them out then to put them on the defensive, you know?
OP - if you need help sorting through info, or have questions, feel free to message me.
Places one should never go … the #beta fish tag…
There is one particularly terrible story in there right now, and inside I’m screaming “you muthafucka….”
OH GOD IS AW IT
IT’S FLIPPIN’ TERRIBLE … LIKE, MOST PEOPLE IN THE BETA TAG ARE JUST UNINFORMED ABOUT CARE, BUT THIS PERSON DOESN’T EVEN CARE. I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT FRAKEN FISH IS ALIVE AFTER A MONTH OF NOT BEING FED…
We should tag our betta posts #beta fish so that more good set ups appear in that tag. Hopefully it would then convince more people that there is a proper way to keep fish.
^ That’s an excellent suggestion, vertigo-bird! Flood the tags we usually avoid with care posts, good setups, and planted tanks.
My friend ordered plants and I tagged along and got a tiny bit. Pennywort, a wee baby java fern, and some wisteria. I’m trying not to disturb the tank too much today, even though I want to level the substrate a bit. Milen seems to be liking the new plants. Much hiding in the wisteria has happened.
Oh how they grow!
My handsome sass master!
lilfoxtrot officially my hero. Also low-techtank for organizing the plants for Peacey fundraiser (and all who participated). Also scalestails for taking on oodles of sick unwanted goldfish for rehoming. Fishblr has done some amazing, heartwarming things this week!

About 8 hours ago I posted a text post will a similar title that just said, “Please Help Tumblr!’
8 hours later I now have the money to rescue my dear parrot Frodo from a less than ideal situation.
700$ in less than 8 hours
Frodo will be coming home with me on Saturday if all goes to plan. I…
This is so wonderful! :D
Would any of you guys be interested in some plants?
I have some Hygrophila difformis (Water Wisteria) and Limnophila sessiliflora (Asian Ambulia)- I might let go some of my Anubias attached to driftwood also. I don’t know yet though, I love them too much.
I’m basically taking my 29G apart, once I rehome my fish. So, just let me know!
Signal boost :)
