ive seen the 1/3g tanks often on the shelf but this one took the cake and the extra icing to go with it. im shocked to see this deathtrap yet not surprised to see it being passed off as a "safe and comfy tank." although the bottom drain feature is cool but i wouldn't bet 2 cents on its integrity.

Thats a good point. Why cant we push for one? I admit when I was first into keeping fish I feel for this trap until some one told me the truth. I heard some states out law the "prize" fish you can get at Carnivals these should be too. Im sure we can get enough people on this forum to agree to a petition to make it law that Bettas can not be Sold like that. Its animal cruelty plain and simple.

it does make sense for them to know diddly squat about betta health if they even consider that a proper home. i do have some opinions of such ppl who get a 500ml tank but i cant post that anywhere on a family friendly site.

i fell for the half gallon unheated tank myself but never was comfy with it once i knew the truth. im just glad that tiny link i posted wasnt on the shelves when i got the half gallon tank.

laws against tank limits can be tricky as far as lobbying options go. lobbyists would defend anything given the right price. i know there are some lobbyists which are good but the majority still uphold those unhealthy and bad products.

I think a law saying no tank under 2.5 can be sold. I know they can live in a gallon. But most people cannot keep up with water changes up to a songle Betta in a twenty. I mean most people do not even change water.

i went to a friends place yesterday and saw their 30-40g long with 5 goldfish. very nice fish but not very responsive, bettas on the other hand are much more curious.
