When did he ever say what type or size they were? They could be 2 inches for all you know. I'm just trying to make a point that you shouldn't just assume.

A goldfish should not be that small. It would either be stunted which proves my point. Or too young which the person if I remember right said they had it for a bit. A goldfish a few months like 6 should be big.

They also said they know that the others tank is overstocked. You would not say that with 5 2 inch goldfish. Plus goldfish do not stay small long.

Nothing under a 2.5 gallon? I've seen really nice 1 gallon tanks with heaters and filters, and regular water changes. I think that is a bit extreme. Another person on bettafish.com has pointed out, as long as the betta is getting proper care, 1 gallons are fine. I think 1/2 gallons are way too small, but at least 1 gallon is okay with proper filters and heaters.

Also, another thing that was pointed it, is that some betta fish, get really stressed unless they are in a small tank. So if a law was made that said nothing smaller than a 2.5 gallon.. and the betta is stressing in that 2.5 gallon... and dies, isn't that just cruel...?...

I'm all for bettas having nice, huge, natural tanks.. but honestly, with proper care, I think small tanks are very nice. And sometimes it's all a person whom wants a betta can afford.

I know 1 gallon works but the average Betta consumer can not perform the proper maintence in 1 gallon.

I appologise and officialy re-tract my previous post.

Back on topic, I wish there was some way to regulate betta sales.
