I'm curious, since pet store
bettas are usually in horrible tiny plastic cups, the water is in
poor condition and there are no covers. Why don't they jump out?
and greetings from bettaland :). It has been quite a week for me
and I have been my usual busy bee self X 2. I am glad it is Friday
and the week-end is at long last at hand. I could use a small
breather... Wait. I have a photo shoot tonight, gotta take Baby to
the vet tomorrow and have a photo shoot tomorrow night and a live
show with my band. AGHHHHH... So much for taking a small
breather... People often tell me: I don't know how you do
it". To which I reply: "Well, that's makes two of
us!" :). I have had a bunch of miscellaneous odd ball
projects all converging at the same time... Add to this a partial
fishroom remodeling project, spawning new pairs, redecorating my
dining room, building a new Palace/cage for Baby the pigeon and
well, there you have it. I am in need of a 396657774000 hour nap
OK, enough whining :), let me roll up my sleeves and tackle (yet) another project: Doing our weekly column :).
Christine, you ask why the pet store bettas don't jump... Well, that's a no brainer: BECAUSE THEY ARE HALF DEAD LOL.
No, but seriously, I often wonder when I walk into a pet store why the bettas are not covered. It seems to suggest to the potential buyer that bettas do not need to be covered when in deed THEY DO (and at ALL time). Here are a few of my thoughts on the topic.
So remember my betta friends: BETTAS DO JUMP, therefore ALWAYS cover your jars or you will find your beloved finned friend on the carpet, dried up and crispy as a potato chip :((((... Not a good thing.
