Default Secrets the Pet Stores Don't Want You to Know

Many pet stores unfortunately just see the money involved and couldn't
care less about the animals they sell. That's why they cram bettas into
those tiny cups. More bettas in more tiny cups means more money for
them.
What pet stores don't tell you is how expensive they make betta keeping
for you. Sure you can buy that poor betta who you're saving from a life
of being crammed into that tiny cup... but then you discover that
heaters and other equipment cost a lot more than they told you it
would. (But the problem is you don't know what equipment to get!)
Then on top of that the pet stores make money when your fish die. Why?
Because you're just going to buy more fish of course!
They don't always intend to be money grubbing of course. The typical
pet store employee simply counts the hours till they can clock out of
work and go get more beer and cigarettes. Certainly compassion for the
animals... or for your wallet... does not mean a thing to them.
Well, the good news is that with my guide you can save your money. I
reveal to you all of the secrets that the pet stores don't want you to
know. You'll be laughing all the way to bank as you discover one
money-saving tip after another.
Did you know there's an easy way to reduce the amount of water changes
you have to do by 70% to 80%?
You don't need to be a math whiz to know that cleaner water means that
much less work! Here's the secret: You can do this using a decorative
plant you can put into your betta's aquarium that eats up nitrites and
ammonia that your betta produces as waste products.
That means you won't need to clean your tank as often, and your Betta
will be happier and healthier, since he'll be swimming in cleaner
water.
The best part about this plant is how easy it is to grow, as it doesn't
require direct sunlight, doesn't lay roots, and sinks right to the
bottom of the tank. And it'll make your aquarium look so much more
beautiful, not to mention your fish will love resting on its leaves!

Default Secrets the Pet Stores Don't Want You to Know

Everyone here knows that plants help the environment for fish. There
are many studies showing this and that plants help fisheries
dramatically.

Many LFS's tell folks that adding plants helps, and focusing on the
base of the ecosystem allows for the higher trophic levels to do better
as well by default.

Adding some house plant to Betta bowls is hardly "a secret" that the
LFS are trying to put one over on anyone.
