Question random question!

Hi yall! I am just curious.... but, what did/do you do with the little cups that your betta came in? I saved mine for whenever I need to take my fish out of the tank (traveling, cleaning, or tank switching). Please, post an answer!

My Bettas:
Pixie
R.I.P Francisco (you are missed!)

I think most of us save them for putting our fish in when we clean our tanks.

That is what I done. I saved them for when I do a water change and when I need my water checked.

I have a couple of mine in the basement. I use small glass bowls to put them in when I do water changes.

I trash them. My betta is in a 5g filtered tank and I leave him in there during pwc. I change about 40% of the water weekly. He doesn't mind his pwc at all and even swims through the stream of water when I add the new water in.

I save all of them for emergency's or when I'm cleaning my smaller tanks.
Each cup has the fish's name written on it to prevent diseases from spreading.

I have a whole dresser drawer for their cups! LOL

I keep mine for a bunch of different stuff. I use them to take fish out, to float snails in when I feed them to keep the fish from eating the algae wafer, to transport them places (b/c I don't have shipping bags), to scoop water in/out for small water changes.

Right now I have one clipped in my tank holding a baby anubias plant (thanks VG) so it can grow without getting sucked up by the filter, etc and doesn't get too much light.

Each one of mine has his or her own net. I also keep their cups.
