Will: Carlton, carlton, I understand that you’re scared, man, but the world can be a scary place. Just got to learn to deal with it.

Carlton: Yeah, well, I found my way.

Will: That’s not you, man. that’s them.

^ i remember this episode i cried while watching this 

Me too. 😢

This episode had me in tears, man. Like, you really knew the characters were growing from this. I loved how it was comedy and still touched on issues that affected Black youth. We need more shows like this on television.

You gotta think, the whole concept of this show was Will growing up in a bad neighborhood where shit like this happened all the time, and Carlton grew up in a life of privilege and sheltered from this kind of life, and I think Will was crying because he came so close to seeing Carlton go down the wrong path and end up like some of his friends back in Philly.

Damnit, y’all… Damn.

But ya’ll be like Will can’t act.

This is probably my favorite episode

Betta not thriving, just surviving:


There are a number of things to note in this picture that are evidence that he is honestly not doing so hot.

  • Redd is very bloated—skip to the end of this section for a better explanation, but at this time someone else over-fed him on goldfish flakes, resulting in the horrible bloating. I was feeding him Aqueon Betta Pellets, which are mostly made up of wheat, which are still horrible for bettas, as are goldfish flakes. Bettas are carnivorous and the first few ingredients of a betta pellet food should ALWAYS be “whole [fish of some sort]” not “fish meal” or “wheat gluten.” It caused him a LOT of bloat and constipation.
  • Redd is a dull sort of orangish red—he was orange when I brought him home from the pet store. He turned orangish red once he was out of the baggie they dumped him in, but he’s still dull in coloration here. Bettas who are in tanks become more more vibrant.
  • Redd’s fins are clamped—he is clearly cold and not in good conditions because his fins just look sad. They are droopy, thin, bunched up (here’s another example of a fish exhibiting clamped fins).
  • Redd has ammonia burns on his gill cover—see those vertical reddish marks and scabby lookin things? Ammonia burns. From there being too much waste and harmful ammonia in the water. He had some from the pet store, but I’m a liar if I say that I haven’t caused him ammonia burns from lack of knowledge about proper betta care (I’m also a liar if I say I haven’t cried about it and how poorly I’ve treated him in the past). He still has scars from the ammonia burns.
  • You can’t see it in this picture, but Redd was pretty lethargic—he moves so much faster in the tank!

EDIT: I completely forgot—this pic was actually taken right after a brief period when, I kid you not, some horrible people in my dorm kidnapped him from my room, and held him hostage for a weekend, and overfed him on GOLDFISH FLAKES. When I got him back he was bloated like that. Regardless, that bloating is bad—the sign of a sick fishy. Regardless, his fins were like this all the time and the bloating is the really major thing that they did to him—I knew that this bloating was BAD.

Betta thriving in tank, a year and a half later:



Things to note in this picture?

  • Redd is not bloated—at least not to the extreme that he was in the first picture; he’s being fed Omega One Betta Buffet Pellets
  • Redd is a ridiculous shade of deep red with hints of blue shining on his body and in his tail—his color is not dull at all!
  • Redd’s fins are big and splayed out—I do want to note, that he ripped his tail badly on something, and I think that horrible spiky plant in the corner is the culprit ( >:C ). But besides that look how big and flashy his fins are! Not droopy and clamped up like in the bowl.
  • You can still see the ammonia burns—some scars last forever, as does the reminder of the horrors I put my precious boy through. It hurts a lot to see those marks on his gill covers. I wish that I had never been sold that horrible betta bubble.
  • You can’t see it in these pictures, but Redd is really active—my dad had trouble getting him to hold still to take these pictures for me!

What made such a difference for this little fish? What I like to call, the four key points to a happy healthy betta—warmth, clean water, space, and a healthy diet. Read more here. Redd went from a less than .5 gallon bowl that was not heated or filter and MAYBE got one water change a week, to a 5 gallon filtered and heated tank that gets weekly water changes.

The story is the same every time…. you kept bettas as a kid, and one day you popped over to your local “big box” pet store, or Wal-Mart, and you saw this pretty little dude with great big long fins, begging you to take him home, looking so sad in his dirty cup. Maybe you picked him up to be a companion at college. Maybe you saw something cool on pinterest. 

But the result is always the same—you ask the pet store employee what size bowl to get, and they tell you “oh, well bettas live in rice paddies in Asia, so they love small spaces!” and they hand you one of these or these, and a little jar of betta food and a bottle of water conditioner, and send you on your way with a bag of gravel and instructions to change the water when it’s really dirty—but it can get a little dirty, because bettas like dirty water.

Well, all of that is wrong information. Bowls do not make good betta homes. They don’t even make ok betta homes! They are completely lacking in some of the most basic things a betta needs. You’re missing clean water, warmth, and space.

So forget everything you know about bettas, and come learn the four essentials of what bettas really need: warmth, clean water, space, and a healthy diet.
