They wouldn't be able to market those if the general public weren't already indifferent to the sight of a fish in a cup. Even sadder.

I agree, keeping a betta in a vase is already not going to let the fish live a very happy life but saying they eat plant roots? That's just ridiculous. Sometimes I wish my bettas would eat some more plant matter like my other fish do, tried with veggie flakes and got the evil stare lol.

I put a post on CL warning potential buyers, I was matter of fact to the point, but pleasant about it. Even included FLs betta care fact sheet link

Just terrible... I hate it when people use fish in this way. I'm glad you wrote something to craigslist. They usually will do something about these things.

wow. This 'new idea' cycled back around. THAT is the sad part. I confess to having one of these in the 90s but even as a newbie I knew bettas wouldn't eat the plant; I put a straw through the root ball and dropped pellets in. Fortunately the plant wilted so badly that I disassembled it.
