Beanie Boxes as Betta Homes

So I was just scanning through various youtube videos on people who have "betta rooms" in which the room is heated for a bunch of betta instead of buying individual heaters. I saw a lot of people use these things called "Beanie Boxes" which are 0.5 gallon containers that you put beanie babies or other stuffed animals in...

The people in the video would literally have maybe 100 betta stuffed into these X_X

Given yes, about 70% of them were breeding facilities, but still... :S...is it...safe? healthy? X_X

i have a few of these cases myself, as i wouldn't recommend keeping a betta fish in them as a permanent home, however, people have been successful in keeping them in the bowls with frequent water changes, i assume these would be no different.

I use them when i do the water changes on my tanks and they seem good for that.

I thought about using one of these in my 10 gallon tank, taking gemstones that i have and using aquarium sealant, and making a small dark cave for my betta, i still may do that lol.

People use them most often for when their fry get too aggressive :D
Not for homes, IMO, though. Too tall, not wide enough for my liking.
