Sorry about that, Wow... I was obviously miseducated about betas a while ago while I haven't researched anything about them in years as I don't really care for them. Sorry for my ignorant post, Guess thats what prevailing misinformation can lead to.

Yeah, I know how it is. I was once misinformed too. The marketing frenzy on Bettas in small containers sways public opinion. It is sad.

I think many people tend to underestimate the bioload or potential size of some fish like oscars or plecos. I'm also not a fan of feeder fish. First, they are carriers of disease and can pass it on to other fish. Second, people may buy these thinking the fish will have a better life or can be cured. That is rarely the case. If people want a nice starter fish great, I'd say go with tetras or danios but don't buy a fish without knowing much about it. This is bad for the fish and the tank.

Rule number one: Always research a fish before you buy it.

Rule number two: Always cycle your tank.
