This "Betta in a bowl" thing is so hot up here in Michigan we have little old
"crafter" ladies coming into the fish stores and getting 30-40 bettas twice a
week. They put philodendren starts in a clear glass vase with a male betta. Then
they sell them for thirty bucks or more. You can't even get bettas right now in
any of the local fish stores because this crafting thing is so hot. Everybodies
got them sitting on their desks at work. The local betta breeders are making a
killing selling their culls instead of feeding them to their big Central American
cichlids. It is a shame though--starving a betta to death like that.
