Deep Blue Betta Tank 2.3 Gal 5 Way

Man, i saw this tank on another thread, i started drooling
http://www.amazon.com/Deep-Blue-Bett...QA6?tag=vig-20

And then i realized Its not 2.3 PER section, resulting in 11.5 gallon. Its a 2.3 gallon divided into 5... Thats insane. A 2.5 is barely fit for 2 bettas, and this one wants to hold 5?...

tho i have to say that tank would be pretty good for 1 or 2 betta, its nice and long lots of surface area. BUt 5? please no....

I like the design of that tank (long and low) and the fact that it comes with dividers. But I agree that it is not an adequate size for anything but temporary accommodation (or the housing of young fish by a breeder).

I did however, find this kind of cool looking barracks during a Google search. The dividers are removable, and it actually looks like it could be a decent system for bettas.

I guess it would be a holding tank for breeders? Even then I don't know.

Wow. It is not right that they keep their discus in that. I know it's only short term, but that poor thing could not swim at all.
I like the concept, but their marketing of it puts me off.

Aluka - if that tank were 2.3gals per compartment, it would be amazing!

The picture makes it look so big. I saw that once and it is just crazy, I hope no one buys that and puts a betta in every single one.

I could see this for a pet store to use instead of cups, but nothing more!

Hhmm, I don't think it would be a good idea. Because if one gets sick, the others can to.
