Rountail or veiltail?
Posted 07 September 2011 - 04:12 AM
to buy a betta in Sweden, I went to a store called "Arkens zoo" where their slogan is "vi älskar djur" (we love animals) and I was surprised to see the bettas were very well taken care of, they were in 15 gallon tanks, heated and filtered, the only downside was that they were with other fish, smaller than them but the bettas didnt seem to mind they just kept in their corners and not a single injury, anyways i bought a 15 gallon and i had a large critter keeper, heated and cycling at home, when i asked the store clerk if i could buy a betta he was very clear he would only sell the betta if i had cycled water that had been cycling for 5 days, i was very glad that at least in sweden the pet stores really care about the bettas, i had seen alot of abuse in pet stores in usa,anywho so i told him i had a cycled tank and bought this little fella
so i thought he was a VT but when I saw him flare I thought his tail was too round, so can he be a roundtail?
hes a feisty little guy hes the first betta i have owned to flare at everything even at me
sorry i sidetracked with the pet store story ; i just got so exited to see a pet store actually caring about bettas

I'm not sure on the tail type, but that's really awesome that they required that. While my tanks aren't cycled except for two, it makes me happy to know there is a store out there that really doesn't care for the well being of their animals.
oooh you should have seen how they sold him to me, they put him in a really thick plastic bag with ALOT of water the bag was leak and tear proof, on the back of the bag it had directions on how to add him to your existing tank, with extreme detail and they wrapped him in paper to reduce stress and finally they put him in another plastic bag i was blown away

the reason they go over the edge is because many animal lovers protest at every single detail and they dont just threaten they actaully do it within a day or two, so i guess they just dont want problems

Thats it fellow UB'ers pack ur bags were all moving to sweden, sun how many can you accomidate? Also i love ur fish. Im not sure what a single tail but hes pretty.
well i currently have a 54liter tank and a large critter keeper. im currently housing this betta there because we got an apartment and were moving soon so he'll have the 54 liter tank all to himself when we move in, im not sure how many i could accomidate with what i got but for now one is enough, the other good part about this pet store is they dont over stock bettas they only have 3 in the store and if you dont see the one youre searching for they order it for you from a local breeder i wish all petstores were like this
