I think I see this a lot. There’s a lot of complaining about the conditions that bettas are kept in and talk of rescue fish. The thing is? You can only make a difference if you try to make a difference.

Just make sure you:

Talk to a manager. I’ve found speaking to employees does nothing but make them uncomfortable. It’s not something that is usually under their control.
Be sure to express your concern, but DON’T BE A JERK.

Be sure to explain why the conditions are wrong (overfeeding, not enough cleaning, a disease, etc.) in a gentle way. Many people don’t know betta care and may not understand what is wrong.
Don’t buy the fish. Seriously. If the fish is sick enough that you feel the store will be unable to keep it alive, you can often convince a manager to allow you to take it home for free. It’s not truly a rescue if you pay for the fish and encourage bad care.

Good luck! :)

Anonymous said: My male betta constantly flares at the aquarium glass and tries to fight what I assume is his reflection. He almost never stops. Is there anything I can do to make him stop? I'm afraid this is stressing him out.

You can try and covering the sides of your aquarium with something so that he cant see it. Either that or have the room lite up. My betta does the same thing when the only thing on is the light in his aquarium
