That seems like a good idea. I'm pretty sure we have a couple PetSmart's around here. If not, we have the french version, but still... Anyways, looks like a good product. It'll give him more room to move around for sure, even though he's as active as possible in his current tank/bowl. Plus he'll be able to see the world without it being warped. I'm wondering what kind of environment bettas like their tanks in. Do they really care?

Mine always love swimming through their silk plants. Tons and tons of silk plants. ;) I think they like their plants more than the open water... ;)

My betta is also depressed. He's in a 20H tank with 3 Kuhli Loaches, 2 Otos and a Mystery snail. He has 6 live plants, a big log, a smaller betta log (both sinking ones) and a wide PVC pipe that floats. Also a coconut shell with holes in it that both he and the bottom dwellers can go into, and he's depressed! My 55 gal. tank is only about 8" away from him with 5 female bettas, put there on purpose for his entertainment, but I guess he doesn't see them. I don't know how good their sight is. He has lost interest in eating, just like the OP's betta. He will eat maybe one or two bites every other day,and I do feel a variety of pelleted and frozen foods, but even then he is not the eager eater he used to be. I'm out of ideas, so I know how you feel.
