Take a gander at these. I found them yesterday when I was looking for stands at Petco. They're trying to sell a living animal as decoration!

I really wish companies like Petco and Petsmart would make a stand against this sort of thing instead of promoting it. I understand the little mom and pop shops have to sell whatever they can to survive, but companies that big could really help turn around the way these poor little fish are treated.

these remind me of the Foxconn employees dorms in China.

No of fence to anyone who posted but.... What good are you doing buy posting pictures like this? All you are doing is complaining and posting pics that obviously are making other members upset. Instead of bashing on these Betta homes, why dont you do something about it, because all you are doing right now is just making other members upset.why don't you contact the person who's selling it. No offence but I honestly get annoyed buy these threads

No one is obligated to look at this thread, it's to spread awareness that people do this and it's wrong. If someone who had one of these saw this and saw how ticked people are about it, they may change it to something more acceptable.

I have voiced my opinion when at shops that sell this junk. I have also stopped thier customers and given them proper info on betta fish.

Threads like this should not make anyone upset. if anything they help point out the type of containers that members should NOT be using. So yes, they can be helpful. The only way anyone would get upset is if they themselves where keeping a betta in one of these tiny prison cells.

Yep, don't look at them.

Another popular yet cruel betta container...


The last time I was at Petco they tried to sell me on one of these things.

They were selling them with a "buy the container and get a free baby betta" deal. :(
