- Fishblr: Look at this trove, treasures untold. How many fish tanks can one fish room hold? Lookin around here you think," sure, they've got everything." I've got tetras and plecos a-plenty. I've got discus and goldfish galore. You want betta fish? I've got twenty! But who cares? No big deal, I want mooOOOORE
Hi guys! I hope you are enjoying my queue so far. The WiFi connection here is pretty terrible so I can’t really update it. D:
My vacation is great, though! I went scuba diving and it was so awesome :D I did a cave dive and I even saw an octopus there! It was so cool. I hope I can do another dive next week.
If you see a dog in a closed box with hardly any air holes, what are you gonna do?
You’re gonna try and get the dog out and call the owner out on their animal mistreatment, right?
If you see a cat locked in a crate with feces all over the floor and all over the cat, you’re gonna try and rescue the cat, right? Maybe punch someone in the face for doing that?
If it was a rabbit, or a horse, or even a bird, you’d try and help the animal and not stand by while it was suffering, right?
Then WHY, in all of HELL, do we ignore these kinds of things when goldfish, or any type of fish, are involved?
Goldfish cannot live a healthy life in a bowl. Goldfish are too large and they create a lot of waste, which, in a bowl especially with no filter, quickly becomes a very toxic environment that they can’t escape from. There’s no room for them to grow, and the the ammonia buildup alone hurts your fish more than you can believe.
The worst is when these things are pointed out and people have the audacity to fight back with bullshit.
"it’s lived in a bowl just fine for the past x amount of weeks!" I could lock you in a closet for a few weeks and you’d live, wouldn’t you? Would it be any good for you? Hell no.
"Goldfish grow to the size of their tank!" Wrong again. Goldfish grow until they die, and a healthy fish will not stop growing. However, a fish in ill heath can become STUNTED, which is not at all good and leads to an early death.
"It’s just a goldfish, I can get another when it dies!" You’re an asshole and a moron, and I wish the worst upon you for treating animals like disposable items.
ANIMALS ARE NOT DECORATIONS; IF YOU’RE NOT WILLING TO PUT IN THE EFFORT TO MAKE SURE YOUR ANIMAL IS HEALTHY, THEN DON’T GET AN ANIMAL
