Disgusting. I plan to get a job at a pet store when I'm old enough. I will probably get fired though. Because they won't sell ANY of those "perfectly sized betta tanks"

They won't mind as long as you are selling larger tanks with heaters and filters.

I thought about working part time at my local petsmart, but I would not last long, maybe 1 paycheck, so it's not worth my time.

A single betta dosen't need more than 1-2.5 gallons of water. Some say they get stressed in larger tanks (not true). The reason some people put bettas in small containers is because their long fins make swimming hard so they rest a lot. However these jars ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE.

To many horror storys. I have the divider half gallon (no gravel or anything like that) for conditioning pairs but other than that it's pretty useless. Mainly because it's to small to house a fish for a long time.

I had one in a less than half a gallon container for 5 days, until I got him a gallon and a half. Then her got moved to the 4 gallon, THEN to a 2.5 gallon.

Just when you think you've seen it all, someone comes up with yet another ridiculous idea. Freakin fish in a speaker?

Horrible and depressing.
