I went to my LPS today, Clark's Pet Emporium, beautiful tank decorations, beautiful bettas, and even a goldfish pond at the back of the store. But I still left raging! Under the betta shelf, was bowls that were no bigger than my hand. >:O

Luckily, I.....Had......My..... CELLPHONE! *Heroic Music*

Massive picture dump of cruel betta tanks coming soon, I have to download my pics.

Yeah, one of the local stores here in my hometown had "tanks" no bigger than the PetsMart cups, the bettas were in a cup the size of a dixie bathroom cup. They even had a deal, Buy the "tank" for $10 and get a free Betta. I wanted to smash every "tank" in the store. I'm going to leave a nast review on their google store profile and probably on their website.

The other day when I was at petco to pick up a heater, I ran into a lady trying to buy a crowntail betta for her 12 year old. I guess her kid asked for one. She'd grabbed a sickly crowntail, and I sort of corrected her-- it was moving but all at the bottom of the cup.

She was headed for one of those small betta 'tanks' that I swear are the size of a soda can. But I told her that her fish would be a lot better off in at least a 2.5 gallon tank, and with a heater for it. She grabbed a decent little home for him, and seemed happy for my help. But it makes me mad that petco sells little tanks hardly the size of the betta cups right next to them. :/

At least she listened to you. A lot of people would have just rolled their eyes and kept on going.

Pls dont bite lol. Is this considered too small? We were sold this as a kit and believed that it was large enough.

Grrrrr....

Damn pet stores. Sold this to my wife assuring her it was everything she needed to keep a Betta. It is all just a few days old, its my daughters present for this Christmas just gone. I wouldnt have minded forking out the extra money to get the right size tank in the first place but to waste the money on the wrong one and then have to go and buy the right one aswell... kinda bites my ass. Makes a man think about doing mean things to lying sales assistants lol
