My friend got two of the second one. Had a female in one and a male in the other. The female died, and she got a new teeny tiny one. His fins started curling and she didn't know why. I kept telling her it was the small tank. She upgraded to a 1.5 gallon. But she put both Bettas in it. I gave her my 2.5 gallon and she gave me her 1 gallon. I don't know why she just didn't use that one.

Most people annoy me when they go around whining about how cruel Betta tanks are but for once I agree. That tank is too small to even hold one not even to mention three

Hey I looked in to that Betta tank. It is only a showcase. So they can flare their fins and Photographers may take quality pictures of them without them moving so much. This tank is not meant for a everyday home.

The girl who works at a local pet store here had 8 bettas, each in a vase, no filter. :S

You don't have to have a filter with every Betta tank/bowl/aquarium

true but still a vase have little surface area and thus less oxygen.although a beta can take in oxygen from air i just don't like the idea of it.maybe my betas use to be pampered but why not??? just imaging this.we have a lot of air around us and what if it dint contain oxygen and we need to breath out of an oxygen tank even when we sleep???? isn't that stressful????

True, that is probably why Kritter Keepers are suggested.

That's okay. My first betta lived in this http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...ductId=2753118 for quite a while (1-1/2 years) before having about 1/3 of a ten gallon tank. And he's the one who's lived the longest of all my bettas :)
