Wait... I was not replying to your post. It was about how the bettas were shipped and the entire "they can live in a little bowl" scenario. Sorry about that.

Hope the law creeps up on this website and shuts it down.

Easy come, easy go.

All my critters, fish to dogs to cats and a bird are like my kids. I would never want to see them crammed into a tiny little shipping device and then be told that they will do just fine in a space twice that size. I feel responsible for them when I take them home, they are dependent on me. I want to take proper care of them. Websites shouldn't encourage such false info, our pets deserve better.

I agree I keep both my Bettas in tanks of 10 or more. I could have divided a 10 gallon and had more but the Betta would be visible and make it to the other side. I am trying to get my parents let me get a five gallon tank and put an elephant ear Betta in there. I would never dream of putting my Betta in one of those bowls. Most of the commenter ore lied about there fish.
