I admit to owning 2 of those torture tanks/bowls about 15 years ago. Didn't know any better but I for sure feel bad about it now and because I was a terrible owner back then. Really just lazy!
Well, where I'm from is quite normal and no one really knows betta should live in a 10L+ aquarium.
Sad as it is, that's how they take care of them.
I remember when I was at primary school, once I went to my teacher's house to get something, I cant remember what though, then she invited me to her house, they had this bowl, must be like.. idk 2-3L bowl with a betta inside, it was gorgeous and huuuuge, they said they had it for years like that and it was "happy" as it was.
I have a 10G tank coming (still didnt arrive
) for my betta and maybe I will use a divider and buy another one. But you see, in my house we are a bit paranoid about pet care, that's why we bought it, but most people, yes most people, would just leave a the fish into a small quarium.
It's cheaper, easier to care and you don't have to waste much time on it, and it's "nice to look the fish".
That's how people are. =/
