I know what you mean about people not understanding the necessary precautions. The way it was brought up and suggesting I didn't know what I was doing... it was a bit offending. I love rescuing and treating sickly betta and I've been doing it for some time now. But I will thank you for trying to inform. :)
Please understand, however, that not everyone rushes blindly into rescues and that you should approach the subject less condescendingly
OHHHHHH!!! You're talking about the mirror ball! I have one for EACH TANK. I have one of each of EVERYTHING for each tank. 3 cleaning tubes, 3 nets, 3 mirrors, 3 buckets...etc. I even have a set testing tubes for each tank. I thought this was considered mandatory for proper fish care.?
