Yeah thats always a tough one because "nobody likes a know it all". I try to only offer information if they ask and ill usually like show a picture of my tank or my bettas 5 gallon planted, heated, filtered home and kinda just casually mention how I do water changes. .... etc.
Kinda like this. ..
Friend says "oh you like fish? I have fish too, check out my betta in this bowl "....
I say "oh neat, check out my tank and here's my bettas 5 gallon tank. He really likes my gentle filter and I keep my heater set at 80 because hes so mich more active than when I had it set at 76. And he really seems to perk up after a weekly water change".
Open conversation they are like "I didn't know they need all that..." and then im like "well they can survive in a bowl but you could survive in a port a potty too..."
