So I saw this today on Pinterest and then found the Etsy link and I have to make a small PSA.

Please do not ever ever ever keep your betta (or any fish for that matter) in a permanent tank this small. EVER.

The seller claims that betta don’t need aeration, filtration, or a lot of water to live a long and healthy life of two years, so a wine bottle is the perfect fashionable tank for them. This is a lie.

Small tanks mean low water temp, which makes betta, a tropical fish, sick. Any good betta tank will have a heater that can be regulated to 80 degrees.

The smallest tank any betta should live in is one gallon, which is nearly three times as much as a wine bottle (or those stupid “betta vases”) will hold. Betta will thrive much better in a three gallon or larger tank.

There is nowhere in this jar for the betta to hide when he’s scared or nap when he’s tired. They do enjoy playing with their humans, but they need some aquarium decor to interact with when you’re not around.

The seller suggests cleaning the tank once a week and that filtration isn’t needed, but bettas eat and poop just like any other fish and create waste that is harmful to them. The small amount of water in this jar should be changed daily, not weekly, to avoid ammonia buildup and remove uneaten food crud. Of course, a daily water change could be avoided with a good sized tank and a nice, slow-current filter.

This person has already sold a number of these upcycled tanks to people who don’t know any better about betta care, and it makes me so sad that their beautiful fish are living unhappy lives.

Fucking hell, Etsy. Grow some standards.

Meet: Augusta Savage, a sculptor who overcame the objections of her father (a Methodist minister opposed to graven images), lack of funding, and racism to become a central figure in the Harlem Renaissance, the founder of several art schools and an educator of many students including Jacob Lawrence.

Augusta Savage with her sculpture Realization, circa 1938 / Andrew Herman, photographer. Federal Art Project, Photographic Division collection, Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution.

When I was a student in KC, we learned about Savage and IIRC,went to Nelson-Atkins to see some of her work. I went to several different schools, but in each one (except the suburban one) our art studies centered on black American artists. It was such a shock moving to LA, where even art teachers had no idea Savage even existed.

This is the Memorial to the Missing and contains over 50,000,000 pennies to represent the lives of each American child abandoned to abortion by a society and a culture that has embraced their destruction. We must prevent the need to add to this memorial. Take a stand. Get involved.

"should I use this $500k to help struggling parents and pregnant people or should I put it in a glass box"

can somebody break this and give it to some real live kids who are actually starving right now

#bikecommutetip Keep those zippered bags your bed sheets come in. They are great for keeping a change if clothes dry in your pack on rainy days.

“This is what constitutes “justice” in the US: A rich white man gets probation for repeatedly raping his daughter, while a poor black woman is facing charges and prison time for leaving her children in a car for less than an hour while she went to a job interview in the hopes of providing for them.”
