Good job! The owner and the betta will be happier in the end.

That's because some stores like Walmart line their shelves with dead bettas who aren't cared for . Also its hard for a betta to move around much when they're stuck in a cup.

I know it is disgraceful. I will 100% admit that when I was new to betta keeping (6 years ago, wow!) I also thought all they needed were those little 1/2 gal keepers. NOW that I have been here and kept many many betta's I WILL NOT house any betta in anything smaller then 2.5gal. They thrive and are so much more entertaining when they actually move around and show you their personality!

2 days ago, my little brother just bought a betta at petsmart. While I was off looking at some tanks, my dad decided to go ask an employee for help.
She suggested that we buy the Marina 1/2 gallon tank with a divider so we could buy 2 bettas!
Everytime she suggested a tank it was 1 gal or lower and it kept getting pricier and pricier. I heard them talking so I decided to go over with the 2.5 Top fin tank for $12. She said they needed a place smaller than that! As she left, I took the betta and the 2.5 gallon and paid for it MYSELF, and took my little brother out of the store lol
