Fish Store

img_9401

I’m not posting new from the Red Sea. But there are fish. We were buying pet food. Petco is a big box chain store. They sell fish. I was stunned to see a sad display of betas. They are solitary and will fight any other fish in its habitat. So there was a stack of bowls with single fish. The fish were lethargic. They can breathe air; there was a tiny hole in the top of the container. Stacked up row upon row the fish were waiting to be sold. It is enough to make you want to reconsider owning a pet. Who thinks this is good advertising?

    My husband and son buy Betta’s all the time. My husbands die off quickly. It seems if they live 3 months he’s lucky! My son says he changes the water too often, being an African cichlid owner he keeps clean tanks. Every week we walk past similar displays in Walmart. I wish he would quit buying these sad little Betta.
