Angry Speaking of terrible aquariums...

What is this nonsense!?

A topic posted earlier made me more curious as to what is considered the "norm" for Betta's....please tell me this isn't it. Anyone else have any to share? The Aquacube post was the one I was referring to.

We went to PetSmart and they had one of these:



on display with a Betta on either side. A gallon split in two. Sad. :(

those aren't even a gallon! they're like... a half gallon! luckily, the pet store i go to, doesn't display those with two bettas in them. they put the most unique HM they get in, in one, so he has more room to show off his fins. :d

I hide those. o.O

And those are less than a gallon. I used to have those, before I knew any better. It was this forum that made me go out and buy a five gallon kit. :O

Edit: beat me to it, Luimeril. :)

Oh yea?!? You think THAT'S BAD?!? Well at PetSmart I was looking at the Bettas and you know how it says what they eat, temp, etc? Well for "tank size" it said "1 quart-" I was like SELFISH PEOPLE!!!

I had someone yelling at me on youtube when i commented saying that those tanks should be banned being all if they are bad why do they make them and such so i told them before yelling at me read these and posted threads like this about horrible little tanks. I would only use something like that for a QT

i use a half-gallon Kritter Keeper for water changes. x: mainly for Cup, before he passed, because the small cups freaked him out.

i have two of these which i have used with fish. they are 1.3 gallons and i do water changes every other day. so if its a responsible owner who keeps up with water changes, these tanks are way better than anything found at regular pet shops...
