That is cruel an not using common sanse to beging with. I bought my first Betta Lily and I at leats got her water Conditioner, Food and a 1g tank to start off with and I did not know squat about Betta Keeping but I used common sense which i hardly ever use by the way.

I experience this with my mother. She believes bettas can thrive in 1/2 g tanks their whole lives with some gravel and a plastic plant ._. .... I told her they need more and she shrugs me off. And that is why I'm glad I no longer live with her and hear her telling me I'm spending too much on my fish, though I love my mom.. just not her hardheadedness.

It is sad! They are fish, people, not just something pretty to look at. The smallest tank I have is 1G, but it is always clean. I can't STAND those .3G cubes, or the .5G "tanks"

To top it off my hubby was trying to tell him too and he said "Oh what's the worse that could happen...it'll just die" and then laughed... that's so mean. I feel horrible. I wish I hadn't given him that darn 3 gal tank...I would have never given it to him if I knew he wasn't going to heed my advice and properly care for the betta he puts in there.
