People like your friend trust the labels more than they trust you , the actual people. It stinks that that's what's happened to so many people these days.

Yeah, but it says in the description that it's ideal for Bettas or Goldfish. It's even worse that they're marketing it towards Goldfish. They need 20 gallons!

I just wanna say that before walmart got about 100 angry rants about this product it used to be 1/8 of a gallon. no joke

this is still terrible:

oh and if you read the info about this bowl it says its a large spacious bowl. NOT! its less than a gallon.

Look at these!

http://www.amazon.com/Aqua-Box-Betta...225825&sr=8-11

You know, what I don't get is people write bad reviews for a product, and then go out and buy it! I'm sure it's happened plenty of times.

For ex. everyone on yahoo answers says "Bettas need at least 5 gallons, though that's a bit small. 10 gallons is a standard Betta tank." But those people have half gallon Betta bowls!!! Seriously you can tell on their avatars... sheesh..

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows

@ baylee- I think I have a water bottle bigger than that...

@ FishyFriend1- I couldn't see the third one. The first one really was a eighth of a gallon?

It's even MORE sad that it's out of stock. That means a lot of people are actually using those torture chambers!
