I don't normally advertise things like this, but as a recently new owner of a betta fish, I'd like to ask my watchers and page viewers to please sign this petition:

www.change.org/en-CA/petitions…

Teddy tanks are a horrible idea for ANY fish and I'd like to see them taken off the market(or at least remarketed for their other purposes. Such as candy bowls.) A few weeks ago, I probably would've thought this was cute. Like many people, I was very uninformed about betta care. But now, after doing a lot of research and now owning a betta of my own, I think this product is terrible.

The most obvious reason why this product is awful: ANIMALS ARE NOT TOYS!
And they should not be advertised like they are. I can only imagine the horrors fish kept in these tanks will go through when children carry the stuffed animal around. You'd think it would be common sense to not let children carry a fishtank around, but kids will be kids and as long as it's also a stuffed toy, they're going to do it. It's needlessly cruel to the fish. They can and will die from stress. Then you have a dead fish and a sad child. It's a no-win.

I'd appreciate anyone signing it. After falling for my betta, I hate to see these beautiful and intelligent fish being marketed like novelties that mean nothing.

And just as an extra, this thread shows before and after pictures of bettas. I just find it AMAZING how these fish can change with a properly sized tank, clean water, good food, and some TLC.
