The tank is by no means new...but the Betta is! Just got him the other day and he seems very excited to be able to swim around freely and chase other fishies all over the place. Although, he is still a little shy, every time I get to close to him with the camera he goes and hides in the log or skull.
This isn't too small, right? I mean, people have told me that it's too small, but it was MADE for bettas, and I don't think it's THAT small. I can't afford a big tank for my little guy right now. I like it because it wasn't expensive, and it can be hung on the wall! :)
It is to small. How would you like to live in a box only big enough for you to turn around? These things may be made for bettas BUT they are not made with the betta in mind, only profit for those who sale them/make them. I hope you take the time to clean and maintain that tank with 100% waters changes EVERY day.
I agree with zen. That tank is at most .9 gallons. Bettas need at least 2 gallons with a heater. It was made for profit, not for bettas. Bettas, in that company's mind, is a way to make money. 2 gallon plastic bowls are only like $12, plus $15 for this heater:
Everythingnice55, Yes, it is too small to maintain stable heat and water quality, not to mention your Betta doesn't have room to exercise his beautiful fins. If you go to walmart's website, they have a Hawkeye 5 gallon for 26.00. It is beautiful and comes with a filter and fluorescent lighting. I have one and I love it. I also saw a 2.5 gallon drum bowl on Amazon.com for 12.19. you could attach a small filter and bowl heater, they sell those at petsmart. Also, garage sales sometimes have used aquariums for great prices.
