I heart Spongebob, it's cute but I would never put a fish in it!

I actually have a few of those divided half gallon tanks...of course I don't use the divider or anything else that comes it in. I just use it for salt baths and a holding tank while I'm cleaning/fixing up their main tanks. I don't see how anyone could use it as a permanent home.

wtf is that?!? Why do they have a Trigger and Tang in there? Those are pictures of a Trigger and Tang I hope....

Still doesn't make sense. O.o And of course every fish naturally swims directly up and down in a tube.

I'm with you! It's disgusting. The IPOD one was particularily disturbing.

I saw at Petsmart yesterday, I KID YOU NOT...

On the Betta bowl lid (Bettas in blue dyed water 1/2 full in those crappy plastic cups): "Recommended Tank Size < 1 gallon."

Seriously? Less than 1 gallon? alfkjadlfkajdflhgoiena. I don't get it.

When I was looking for a tank for my Betta I passed over the 1 gal or 1.5 gallons. I just couldn't do it. A 2.5 was my minimum.

Yeah I don't get why they think they can be in something so small. That's why we have this site. To tell new betta owners to get a tank 2.5+

My betta's in a two gallon, and he seems perfectly happy. Even so, I'm chomping at the bit to upgrade him to a 5 gallon as soon as I can. I don't have the money just yet, and for now he's energetic, happy and eating just fine, so I'm not too worried. It's way better than that 2 1/2 cup bit of plastic he lived in at the store. We call it his loft apartment in Athens (his decorations are a wide-leafed plant and a tiny greek ruin). I think his 5 gallon will be more of a manse. ^.^

A 1.5 gallon will be fine. I have one of mine in a 1.5 gallon critter keepre. Make sure you keep up with water changes.

Yep, water changes are very important with smaller containers. :)
