Angry Possibly the worst betta "tank" I have ever seen.

Seriously - this is about as awful as it gets. The hands are just moving around poking him.
I usually just kind of roll my eyes at tiny tanks, but this goes a step further in cruelty to the poor fish trapped inside.

I love how all comments for it need to be approved by the person who uploaded the video

I was going to write a well-thought out and polite comment, too. But then I saw that and just decided to give it a thumbs down. I also saw this on PFK and was greatly saddened. At least the comments on PFK seem to be against this "container" (dare I even call it a tank).

iv see this typ of thing befor, I saw a guy made what looked like this only his was bigger and the tank was only a well made front so the cloak arms did not tuch the fish in any way and it held a gallon. ill se if i can find the file.

the tank that is in this vid is just sad, once again poeple just forget to think about how the betta may feel

Ther is nothing on tv... time to watch the fish tank. Bettas hours of fun.

When I first looked at it, you could still comment and there were about twenty comments informing him of the cruelty of it.

Then he deleted them all and switched over to approval only, so he knows but doesn't care.

Yes, I'm sure a half-gallon clock with hands that can EASILY TEAR HIS FINS is a wonderfully happy home for a Betta, as stated in the description.

Seriously, people like this get me steamed.

It's apparantly 1.2 gallons but still.... The fish in the video was already used to swimming away from the hands. Awful. Awful. Who even designed this thing?!? Nothing in there to stimulate the fish at all, just keeps him alert enough to move every time the second ticker chases him.

Terrible.

I love how simple to heat it is, the amazing filtration system and the easy-access method of cleaning. And just look at all the hiding spots it provides! A truly ethical home for a betta, taking in to account all the needs of the species.

Warning: this post may contain heavy sarcasm.

Life.
