O.O

I almost died when I was that second-to-last one.

I actually have the ruffle bowl from the first post, but I use it as a place to put my fish during the 5 mins between water changes, NEVER as a permanent home. No thank you Petco, I think I'll stick with my 3 gal.

But in my opinion, this is the absolute worst... (maybe the second worst after that stupid penguin bowl... /shudders)

omg. even a "small puddle" holds more water than those things. the betta can't even turn around! i couldn't even fit my fist in one of those. those tanks are as good as the cups the bettas come in!

I saw this .42 gallon lava lamp type aquarium. That and the ipod one look preety cool, but are horrible for a fish. The only reason people buy those is because they look nice...

This is sold as a divdeable tank for two Bettas with everything "needed" for their enviroment! The only thing I use these for is holding a single fish during water change....And they call it a large!

I use a lot of divider tanks, but I usually have more bettas than you (breeder :P). But IMO 2.5 gallon, heated, filtered, with live plants is the absolute best setup ever!! Like I said, small enough to resemble a natural habitat (which are small sections or areas of large ponds and rice fileds) and big enough to not worry about water quality. I like how betta bowls look to be honest but I hate how bad they are!!! If they were a couple more gallons it would great!!!

I remember seeing a round glass bowl in a yard sale a few years ago. I swear the thing could have held 4-5 gallons - no kidding. Ah, I wish I got it. Give it an all natural look with a few live plants and it would look stunning. It was only like $5 I think. But back then I didnt have the betta bug.

EDIT: It looked like this one but a bit bigger

Yup. Male bettas seem to have trouble swimming around they're "territory" in anything larger than 10 gallons, but they sure do LOVE nice large tanks.
