It's just air being pumped into the containers. The problem is that many stores don't change the water in the containers and the Bettas sit in their own waste. This is more a flashy display if it only was a drip system now that would be a step in the right direction.

the bettas inside these containers where much more lively and active looking the the last left in the bowls. there is never gonna be a good way for stores like petco and petsmart to keep bettas becasue they have no way to heat them.

actually i just had a idea. a glass door on the front of a display like this a a small heater would keep the cups warm.

I went to a LFS for my first betta. And while their displays weren't flashy, each fish had it's own glass bowl warmly heated and decorated. Most of them were also making bubble nests. Freaking bubble nests! In a pet store!

The only problem is they only stocked veiltails and while I like veils I really, wanted a halfmoon. So petco it was because they carry all the exotic tails. But still, bubble nests!

I had high hopes for this system when it came out. The biggest piece of junk ever made for betta. They are still in tiny cups. What with the "air driven system" ? The betta just bounce around in misery. There is absolutely no need to drive in so much air. These are betta for gosh sake. It does display them nicely with the LED lights. Too bad the fish looked so sad under this good light. However after a tour of local shops many of these have been removed thankfully. They are a pain for employees to maintain as well. The concept of the design is completely flawed. It needed to be a water drip in/ drip out. A heater and canister filter could have been run sump style to keep the water awesome. Could have been terrific. Total junk. Betta are better off in a tiny cup than this fatally flawed contraption. Too bad so many business wasted money on this thing in a failed attempt to help the betta.

Yep I agree... aeration was probably the most useless feature they could have added for these fish...

It looked good, until I realized those were bubblers. Bubblers don't really do much for bettas... I actually feel like it is overkill to have aerators or filters in a container that small. That amount of water disturbance seems like it would stress the bettas out more.

I wish more betta displays in stores would actually utilise heaters. The difference in behaviour and colouration that water of an appropriate temperature can bring about is often nothing short of astonishing. I hate that not only do most stores not change the water in their betta cups/bowls enough, but they also force them to endure fluctuating temperatures.
