I just want to say that tank size is an opinionated thing.
Calling PETA will do no good because they say 10-13 gallons is the minimum.

To be honest what he's keeping those fish in are unfortunately better than what most pet stores keep there fish in. I went into a LFS today and the cups were staked with airtight lids on, so the fish's couldn't breathe.

Current Betta:
Mulan: Blue/Green/Red HM Male

Those who now swim in the Rainbow Ponds:
Spike: VT Purple Male
Glaedr: CT Yellow Male
Ezio: DeT Dragonscale Male
Stu (Founder of the obsession): CT Blue Male

Just because bettas are able to survive in these low standard conditions doesn't mean that they should. The reason I decided to buy a betta was because at the fish store, they are sold in little cups. I know it is to keep them seperated but that is such a small space for a single fish. I have a five gallon tank and it might seem small for bettas, but it is actually good beings that they can be bought by someone who isn't considering the cruel conditions that they put the betta through.

Those are just too small. Why do people think Betta can live in that? Would they put a goldfish in that? An Angelfish? HELL NO.

I think being in those is better than the standard cup at Petco, and when someone buys this, they can always upgrade to their own tank..could be just for selling purposes, I hate to say but a friend of mine has this as a perm home or did for a year for her daughters betta girl, and I was so upset, and I offered her a 2gal size KK for their betta, with plants, and hiding cave..and gravel her betta only had that, and no gravel, no plants, no cave..:(
