Can you do this?

Completely cover a cup/tupperware your fish is in.

I'm thinking of how to transport him and Pudge when I go back to college, but I prefer it if I could completely cover his cup with a lid rather than have it hanging off the side a bit...

I know that they're air breathers and I don't want to suffocate him....

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

You can, but poke a little hole in the lid. A little whole you can see 2 feet away.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

okay. Will do!

I might start doing this now since I use a tupperware to put Buddha in when I do water changes.

If Pudge is coming from a pet store, just keep the cup he comes in, and transport him in that. For Buddha, you can put him in a tupperware container with a dime or penny sized hole in the lid. That way, he won't spill while you're driving.

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

Yes. I do it all the time. They can last two weeks in a shipping bag. They really don't use that much air.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

oooo sounds smart! D8
Stupid me would have thrown out the cup. And I'll definitely remember to do that tomorrow with Buddha's lid

I actually asked Petco to if I could buy some betta cups and they just gave me as many as I wanted for free. I use them during water changes sometimes and use them when they need moved to another tank or something, they already have the air hole in them and work great for the purpose, but if your moving far, shipping bag might be a bit easier to transport
