2.5 gallon?

i was in my local petstore recently and saw a 2.5 gal tank, would that be to small for 4 female bettas? i think it might but i would be taking god care of it. it is not a desktop it is like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13AwLa0j1cw (this is not my tank i just found it on youtube.)

You ideally need a 20gal long for a proper sorority, however, many have been successful using 10gal too....regardless...sororities can have problems all their own and 2.5gal is far too small....great for a single Betta....

Why would you move them from a tank that is the correct size to something that is obviously way too small? It makes no sense. Keep them where they are. They would be extremely cramped and unhappy in a 2.5 gallon. A 2.5 gallon is the MINIMUM for one fish. You could never fit 4 in it.

I concur with Sweeda. Why waste the money and put them in something they would most likely kill each other in?
