i would go and still those bulbs and keep the bettas in 20 gallon aquariums each!!! with lots of swimming room so i can see the smiles on their faces and the bubbles on the waters surface.....

its ok to be a creative artist, but its common sense not to dispose of living animals to show off your work

The way everyone treats beta's seem cruel to me. Go into the pet store and there in small cups. Even people who keep them get those small little tanks.

That really angers me.. Do you know of any way that you could contact the artist? Did it have an email address or anything of the sort?

It reminds me of the time when these people were having a party and they threw a betta into a glass of champaigne . Luckily there was a vet at the party and he took the betta out of the champaigne and took care of it. How he did it I don't know. Removing from champaigne then putting it into tap water to bring it back to his house? Maybe it was his house and he put it into one of his fish tanks.

That's just insane. Rach is right, we should find an email for the artist, or better yet, the gallery, and send them emails of protest.
The things people do....

Thinking of what another members said about animal cruelty. If it was a dog or cat there would be some animal activist showing up. Fish are considered as pet so is there a such thing as fish cruelty?

This really has me aaaaannnnnnnnggggggrrryyyyyyyyyyy Im serious, is there anyway we can contact this :censor: . Fish are just as much pets as anyone else. I think they feel pain, and they feel hunger, and they certainly feel what that man is doing to them ..;djkf;ldskf;lfjdflvgkjdf;lkgvjd this angers me soooo much
