The betta, also known as the betta fish, belongs to the genus Betta from the Anabanthidae family. Feeding of this species does not differ from that typical for the entire family and does not require special description. As you already understand, betta fish in an aquarium can only exist in one copy. Here https://www.theaquariumkeeper.com/betta-fins-shredded-overnight-possible-causes you can find out more about its features

some valid ideas but presented in the usual trendy brainwashed way using trendy terminology that is classic Jasmin Singer. Other ideas, such as using time and already scarce financial resources to join human racial causes when there is tons of money, time, news stories, events, and attention bring given to this broad issue already is beyond asinine! Yes, organizations should be unbiased towards race, gender, etc. and be exposed if they don't clean up their act immediately. But this movement exists to help non-humans because humans already get tons of news, financial help, discussion on TV and radio, events, charitable organizations, etc. You women are just trend hopping so you feel relevant. Let's make sure we are not guilty of these problems within our AR organizations and let's get back to focusing on the animals!!! Stop trying to hijack and divert the focus of this movement!!

The guest didn't see a need for everyone around the world to stop eating meat. Thanks for speaking up for the Animals, Mary Ann by disagreeing with him. HSUS has stated in the past that they aren't an animal rights organization and it's easy to see that they're not kidding. Just look at their new CEO. Good reason not to have them on or to send them MONEY. The guest made some good points and I liked his passion . They are a bizarre organization ! Other than that , a good interview. Thanks , Mary Ann.
