What do you think of this setup?

What do you think of this? I was thinking of getting it for my fish...


It's filtered and there the glass is frosted so they can't see each other (for 3 bettas)

The consensus seems to be that it's clever in theory but terrible in execution. Here are a few threads that I was able to find quickly:

I also remember a recent thread from someone who found and helped a betta stuck in one of these at a pet store.

I actually bought one right when they came out and returned it. It looked really cool, but it was so loud! Maybe mine was defective. Either way, the bettas don't have much room in their section.

each of those sections is NOT enough space for a betta. Read the links posted above.

each section is about 1/4 - 1/2 a gallon which is not enough space for a betta since 1 betta needs 2.5 gallons. There is also no room for a heater.

+1^^^ Not only that none of the sections have tops on them :-/ A betta could easily jump over to it's partners side as they are amazing jumpers... It's gorgeous if only it was much larger. But at the size it is I would not like to have it.

It would be a great snail tank!? Or maybe even a shrimp tank?! I don't know much about shrimp but I know there bio load doesn't add much as compared too a betta :D

I have seen these in action at pet stores. The fish look miserable in tiny sections not much bigger than cups... and the current is very strong and presses them against the glass.
