Would you put your betta in this?

My sister has fallen in love with my shrimp, she has just passed her A levels and I am thinking of buying her a few, so I was browsing online for a small tank that she could easily take care of and stumbled across this. It is 1.3Litres which makes it 0.3 Gallons.

What are your opinions, would you put your betta in this?

FTR - I'm not planning on getting this tank for a betta

No. I'm not saying I have not seen happy betas in small tanks, but that's not even a half gallon. Besides, a tank that small means tons of water changes and more work for me.

If you get that bowl (to small) the betta will never be happy.

I was shocked when I found it, the sad thing is that a person starting out with bettas who wants a small tank will make the mistake of buying this and keeping their betta in it :(

The only thing I would keep in there would be a small plant - and even that not for long!!!
