any tank can be a bad tank, imo. even someone with a 20 gallon, once over stocked and never cleaned, can be a bad tank.

but.. yeah. most betta tanks are horrid.

i DO have a one-gallon 'betta bowl'. but, it just has one betta. is cleaned twice a week. and stays in a warm room. Stephano is quite happy in it, constantly moving, never clamped. happy boy. :B

What was wrong with that second one? It looked to hold quite a few gallons of water, and it had to have an access point.

I'll be honest, starting out on bettas I've had a few of those stupid tanks. And knowing what I now know about bettas and caring for them. I've prayed for forgiveness from those fish and my higher up.
But I've since turned my ways :)

On a side note, how about those poor goldies!!!

When I was about 10 or so, I saw something similar on an interior decorating tv show. I thought it was SO cool. I never got one of those wall tanks thank goodness but it did spark my love of bettas.

I did start with a unheated one gallon that I only cleaned when the water got gross. That poor, poor fish. I didn't know better at the time though, thanks, in part, to the pet store employees and that tv show...

I've learned a lot since then.

No kidding. Both beautiful fish always seem to get the short end of the stick. If I had a dollar for every time someone told me "goldfish don't live long" I would be a rich woman. Of course they don't live long in cramped spaces with poor nutrition and practically no water changes. You wouldn't live long in a prison cell with no waste removal and living on broth.

That reminds me of the PetsSuperMarket employee who told me that if a betta was put into a home bigger than 5 gallons he'd go into a corner, freak out and die from stress.
I made the comparison of him moving from a dinky motel to a huge apartment with hardwood flooring. Told him he wouldn't go into a corner freak out and die from stress, he'd possibly be doing the sock slide across the hallway floor. He didn't say another word.
