I'm guilty, the first 'tank' I bought was a 1/2 gallon starter kit. Glad I came home and found this forum and within a week I bought a 5 gallon with a heater and eventually a sponge filter. I should have read before buying but took my 3yr old to a pet store and said he could pick any fish he wanted...glad I'm better educated now.

Awww that's okay. My first betta was in a half gallon, only live 2 weeks (I wondered why) and then when I had Venus he was in a half gallon for a few months, then I bought his 3 gallon.

We're going on two months now and he's doing well. He hasn't blown a bubble nest since getting him a filter though...and rarely flares anymore unless I bring out a mirror. He used to flare at me regularly like he hated me or something :P

Post a review but if you do it in a non-aggressive way, people who are interested in the betta tank will be more inclined to listen and learn rather than be put on the defensive. You can explain how while this size tank is often considered as a first option, bettas live longest and healthiest in at least a one gallon. Possibly even link to information or another, more suitable tank. Then the potential buyer will have an idea of what to look for at his LFS or online. Like you said, most people don't know and need to be educated. =)

you act as if this is something new. people make crappyy products for nearly everything you can imagine. don't support it by not buying it. I don't really see the need to make a thread about it here, seeing as people here already know not to house a betta in a tank that small.
