What is this? I don't get....

My friend sent me this picture on Facebook (and yes, that's me who commented on it!).

I don't know how big these vodka bottles are but look to be about 2 liters. Poor fish. :( Anyone know anything about this?

The biggest bottle for Absolut is 1.76L which is about half a gallon.

it's, unfortunately, pretty common for people to put bettas in all manners of bottles and vases. :/ sad, but they think it's 'cute'.

Poor fish. No acclimating. And I thought a vase was bad enough. A vodka bottle? Really?

I think the question is... how did they get them in there? O_o

The bettas in the photos aren't clamped, and I do see live plants in there... it might be possible they're not in as horrible conditions as one might think, but still .5 gallons are too tiny. :P

Its off the topic of bettas but about small bottles.... My sister's best friend had her wedding in Los Vegas and her reception was in town yesterday... On each table they put glass flower vases with an narrow neck, blue polished glass as grave and put 3-4 feeder gold fish in them... its was less then half a gallon of water in each vase.. i took the one on my table home with me and i had trouble getting out one of the fishies.... T_T I feel sorry for all the others that i couldnt take with me... I cant imagine it being an easy task to clean out these bottles if i couldnt even get a gold fish out of a vase...

That's really sad. Bettas COULD tolerate small spaces, but the poor goldfish. Can you just imagine how constricted they must feel?
