+1 totally agree. I have two half gallons and three one gallons, none of which I use to house bettas. I use them for emergency QTs. While some can be happy with heat, I find trouble being able to decorate something that small to my liking (human visuals, ugh). Not only that, but I also want my Bettas to be as happy and curious as possible. Let him know that a betta fish who lives to be four years old, but has had clamped fins their whole life has never really been happy. That's four years of unhappiness there. Which sucks.
