So I saw this today on Pinterest and then found the Etsy link and I have to make a small PSA.

Please do not ever ever ever keep your betta (or any fish for that matter) in a permanent tank this small. EVER.

The seller claims that betta don’t need aeration, filtration, or a lot of water to live a long and healthy life of two years, so a wine bottle is the perfect fashionable tank for them. This is a lie.

Small tanks mean low water temp, which makes betta, a tropical fish, sick. Any good betta tank will have a heater that can be regulated to 80 degrees.

The smallest tank any betta should live in is one gallon, which is nearly three times as much as a wine bottle (or those stupid “betta vases”) will hold. Betta will thrive much better in a three gallon or larger tank.

There is nowhere in this jar for the betta to hide when he’s scared or nap when he’s tired. They do enjoy playing with their humans, but they need some aquarium decor to interact with when you’re not around.

The seller suggests cleaning the tank once a week and that filtration isn’t needed, but bettas eat and poop just like any other fish and create waste that is harmful to them. The small amount of water in this jar should be changed daily, not weekly, to avoid ammonia buildup and remove uneaten food crud. Of course, a daily water change could be avoided with a good sized tank and a nice, slow-current filter.

This person has already sold a number of these upcycled tanks to people who don’t know any better about betta care, and it makes me so sad that their beautiful fish are living unhappy lives.

Reblogging for learning something new and incredibly needed today.

why are people buying pets to be put in something for fucking decoration anyways?? asshats. 

seriously fuck people

i get upcycling and all, but just fucking recycle your empty wine bottles, jesus.

Animals should not be treated like fashion accessories ever.

Insanity Day 9

Well it was the second pure cardio workout for me. I found it very difficult today, my brain is saying push you should be able to do this and my body (specifically my lungs and heart) are saying nope. 

I’m following fitness blogs to keep me motivated but I think because I’m close to my period my whole body just feels very meh and it’s making it hard to keep going. Keep going I shall though, I want to feel a bit happier with myself. Damn Masters thesis making me all wobbly!

Insanity day 8

Well today was pretty hard after the one day break to motivate myself to do it again but I did and I feel exhausted but great right now. I’m capable of surviving for more of the power and resistance workout already which pleases me, though I’ve just stopped taking beta blockers (since they were doing nothing to stop migraines), so my heart rate was pretty high compared to last week. I didn’t sit out the 8 hop squats and 8 push-ups at the end either, so I’m pleased with that.

I’m a bit disheartened that I’ve both put on weight (fine as I know exercise + weight most likely = muscle) and inches on all my measurements. I’m not sure if I was having a particularly thin day when I started but all my measurements have been increasing. I hope that’s just my body adjusting or based on my cycle. I tend to become a balloon certain times of the month.

Is anyone else doing this workout? I’d love some workout buddies on here to keep each other motivated. It’s difficult getting myself up at 6:30 every morning to workout on my own.
