Unhappy Giant bettas

Has anyone else seen the way they measure the giant bettas? It looks so cruel :( sticking them in a plastic bag with barley any water.

It may look cruel but it really does not hurt them. They are not squished or anything and looks worse than it is. Giants are very valued by their breeders so hurting them is the last thing a giant breeder would want to do. Most of the time the big lugs are spoiled rotten IME.

Hmmm looking at those measurements of a Giant,I wonder if my boy Mako is one? I measured him today & from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail he is between 6-7cm long,and is around 9 months of age.He is a round tailed Plakat & is very big and solid.

I unfortunately cannot upload pics though.

Its not cruel. They are only out of water for a few seconds while the picture is being taken. Fish can handle a surprisingly long time out of water. Its almost impossible to get an accurate measurement of the fish without putting it directly onto a ruler. The bag I assume is to stop it from flopping around while the picture is being taken and to prevent the fish from damaging itself
