That is cruel, but dont criticize because not everyone knows the proper care for bettas. I mean i used to think that those tiny bowls that they keep them in at the store was the perfect home until i finally researched and got some type of knowledge of the type of fish. So dont judge them on the size of the bowls.

I am very sorry, I did not mean that to sound rude or to criticize. Sometimes my words do not go together right. :)
I was leaning more towards people who do not care about their fish and see them more as an ornament than a pet. I understand some people do not know better. I also have made stupid mistakes with my pets because of lack of knowledge. Again, I did not mean to offend.

Yikes! I would never keep a betta in one of those. I had a friend in college who kept a betta in a small applesauce jar. I had never really had bettas, but I thought it was kind of small for a fish. Yet she seemed to know what she was doing. But I would just feel bad for a fish in something that small.

Well i just wanted to defend the people that dont actually know. Also please dont be sorry because it wasn't your fault either. I knew that YOU were referring to the people that know but dont care. Is just other people on the forum i just wanted to inform them about what i know. After all this is a forum that has many opinions and suggestions that all members SHOULD (but sometimes dont) take into consideration for.

Oh Good Gravy... if anything, this could only be salvaged if you ditched the FinRipper of a plant and perhaps used it for traveling. It seems tall enough so that sloshing from movement of transport wouldn't be bad. (Cept you'd HAVE to remove that plant so your betta doesn't shred on it from a light bump.)

So... as a Transporter... actually wouldn't seem to bad, if not... a good transport container (After ditching the plant.). I'd have probably liked this for when I had transported Drax from the DORMs... which I had used an opaque mug (How he survived an hour in my friends heaterless (It had busted) car I'll never know.)

So... as a permanent tank? ... no, never.

So... as a QT tank for maybe a day or so while cleaning or to treat for illness? Mmmm... perhaps? If you have a dozen betta's and need to QT alot of them at once... would probably be a good space saver (IF the 'Stackable' option doesn't suffocate them.).

Just to say it again... My 'Perhaps' idea is ONLY if you remove the dang plant haha. And thats ONLY for transport, and perhaps QTing.

They sell these things at the petstore where I got my little betta in, and they use them as displays all the time.

But the original one is just silly. It's even smaller than the cups the normally come in!
