It's fine. People think because I'm blonde that I'm going to be all dumb and pretty. Boy are they wrong. people at the petstore ignore my advice even when I tell them I have had Bettas for awhile and know their care. But nnooo they decide to listen to the older "more responsible, and trained employee." I agree with you fully.
i have her in a qt jar and have meds at hand. i think thats what keeps her going. but in my 10gal. i have two others. those 2 don't attack each other. you are correct i am a great owner. and even though ive been keeping bettas for only three months i know more than most people. even my signature says it. i hate when people think young means dumb. sorry about all that you just made me feel great.
