Not only is it a big no-no in betta keeping, it is also a big no-no in the keeping of all
fish and animals. For example, at pet stores they sell guinea pigs and those tiny little cages. Guess what? Guinea pigs require a companion and at least 2-3 square feet each! But at petco they sell you cruel cages where the guinea pig gets like one square foot. Same is with fish, they don't give you the right information.
