As we all know, betta fish love to have SPACE! So why is it that every pet store's 'betta homes' are ridiculously small? 90% of the ones that I've seen are cute LITTLE tanks/bowls. And they're labeled FOR bettas! I have coffee mugs bigger than these things!! Everyone has seen what I'm talking about, I'm sure. I just had to vent about it. It's things like this that mislead new betta owners, and its not fair to these fish.
My boyfriend tried to argue with me that those tiny habitats are perfect for bettas just cause it has a betta picture on the box! Grr! I'm glad he doesn't own any bettas. Of course if he did, I'd teach him better.
