What the those tanks have NOTHING for bettas everything is wrong even the decorations Bettas need a minimum of five gallons I would call PETA on them if I did not hate them and they did not hate us.Why is he listing species above the pics I bet he cannot take care of any of the species on the list we already know he is ignorant about Bettas.

That guy is dumb. I feel like people pick on betta because they are small. Since they are small and quiet and don't complain, people think they can keep them in a 16oz container with no place to hide.

Yeah betta fish are the easiest to care for, but you still need to CARE for them...

Possibly the guy is putting them in their for traveling/selling reasons? In my opinion it's a lot better then a cup.

What are you talking about? 2.5 is possible but less exercise and harder to heat but 2.5 is absolute minimum with 5 being better.
