I hate bettas in a vase. People often believe that you don't require a heater or filter, and the bettas don't need to be fed because they eat the roots. Which isn't true, bettas are carnivores.

It's much much much too small... As Creamcookie has said bettas are indeed carnivores and shouldn't eat roots. It doesn't give them proper nutrition and probably aren't good for them anyway. And filters, heaters, etc. are necessary for bettas.
It looks good, sure, but would you rather have a good-looking vase or a happy, healthy betta?

i know this just made me really mad and this shows how ignorant people can be...they at least need the minimum about on 5 or more gallons... you can also put them in 1 or 2 gallons but the bigger the better (preferably 5gal or more)...also heavily planted!!!

Do you know the person who has the vase? Maybe if you do you could tell them their betta needs a bigger home...? Or did you get this as a present? Sorry, I'm confused :S

No, this is just a generic photo of a betta in a vase. It's popped up on the forum a few times, I've noted. But the facts always remain the same: bettas are not suited for a vase. The water fouls quickly, it's cold, cramped, and the betta has nothing to eat.
