Lightbulb The Betta 'Bowl' Rant Thread

This thread is all about the horribly small so called living spaces for bettas. Find links to websites that have horrible little bowls. I'll go first.

Have you heard of the iPond? It's just sad.

This one looks even worse... http://www.petco.com/product/109885/...%20Bowl-109885

Also, the only thing I hate about my LFS is that they sell a 6oz "Betta Bowl".

That stinks. The overall rating was bad, but if you read the reviews 2 people thought it was excellent and 1 just didn't like the small opening. But 1 said the mud puddle-rice field controversy.

A betta couldn't even turn around in 6 oz.

I know. For some reason people think Betta don't like to swim. They do, though! I have my new Betta in my 10 gallon, which I plan to divide, and he LOVES the space. He's even swimming through the hamster tube I have in there at the moment. He's SO cute!

I first got my betta in a 1.5 gallon. I quickly wanted bigger. I looked at a lot of 3-5 gallons, but then settled on a 10 gallon. I feel so good about it, but now I want another tank.

You really could divide it. 5 gallons for a Betta is plenty. But that's obviously your choice. I decided to divide my 10 gallon in 2 parts instead of the 3 I was planning on. I know my fish will be really happy.

Yeah. But I would rather a different tank than a didvide one. Just don't like the idea of a divded tank. No offense or anything.

Back to the thread... http://www.petco.com/product/110878/...t=FishFC_Tanks

At least they don't ask you to divide this one.

That's cute, but not good for a fish. I think it would be awesome if they made a large statue for a 2.5 gallon bowl shaped like that.

Yeah... They can make some pretty cool stuff, but they shouldn't put such a small thing on their. I wouldn't feel comfortable having a fish on that thing.
