My friend started to get interested in fish, and one day bought a Eclipse 10g. Two days later, three hours after he put the water in, he went to the lfs and bought one tiger barb, 4 comet goldfish, and two baby knife-fish. Shocked Shocked Shocked

One day later, two of the goldfish were dead, and I directed him to this site. Bad idea... Embarassed

After half an hour, he turned to me and said "Who ARE these idiots? They think it's wrong to keep goldfish in a bowl, and wrong to put two bettas together!"

Needless to say, I was LMAO before the end of the sentence. Rolling Eyes

Well, like the man said, "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it think." Nay, at least make it think about anything besides hay, grain, lady horses and open fields.

I'm new to this whole fish thing too but I'm now seeing things people are doing incorrectly with their fish. Ignorance is one thing, but rejecting knowledge is another.

Oh Mr coffee,
Tell your friend he CAN keep goldfish in a bowl... and he CAN keep goldfish in the freezer. It just isn't too good for the goldfish.
As far as the bettas go (I'm assuming they're males) Tell him this:
5 bettas in a small bowl,
set inside a cockfighting ring,
built within a bull fighting arena,
Ernest Hemingway,
lots of tequila,
fists full of cash... It could happen!
but I wouldn't want to be the fish Laughing

On second thought... don't give him any ideas Wink

Oh well. Hopefully he'll get discouraged and give up keeping fish before he can kill too many.
