What is your advices about having a cat in the house full of betta fish ??
I really can't offer any advice, I've had my cat for 8 years. She's slept with fettets, cleaned rats, watched the tanks, played with bunnies and dragons and she currently sleeps with a Pitbull. She's not your average cat. I do not leave my tanks open though, just in case. I trust her but at the end of the day she's only an animal :) Is your sister buying a cat or adopting a shelter cat from petco? *sadface*

I know that betta do jump out of their jars or tanks, so i put some plastic rap over the vase. That vase is big, when fill up with water inside, it is quite heavy.
I will do water change probably 2 times a week. No heater need it for now, it is still really warm here.
My sister want to buy a cat at petco, i saw the price, it is so expensive. I could buy a lot of betta with that price, i think she is out her mind. She still need everybody approval to be able to get her cat, not everyone in the household like cat, i dont like cat either but i do like dog.

Honestly some of my Betta prefer smaller or more heavily decorated tanks. You just have to watch the personality. I have a few that don't like heaters either, surprisingly.

As lond as it's not small enough to be knocked over, andit has a lid, you're finecat wise.

Not sure the plastic wrap counts as a lid when it comes to cats, and i hope you poked an air hole or two xD two changes a week sounds fine.

I have 4 cats, they can easily access my open top jars, but they leave them alone. I have 2 that like to play with the fish from outside of the glass though - they never try to catch them. The closest they come to that is drinking the water lol.

It's small but 2 of mine enjoy a smaller tank but plastic wrap? Be sure to poke holes so he can breathe...he is very pretty.

Cats, well, I have covers for my tanks. But she does drink from my shrimp bowl. O.e

Uhm, not to be a hater or anything, I think it looks nice, but it looks a little too small. Plus, what if he jumps out? It looks like half a gallon of water. Even 1 would be a little too small. How do you heat it?

I agree. It's really pretty, I'll give it that, but it should be AT LEAST a gallon. It doesn't even look to be half a gallon. With it being that small, you should be doing water changes. Again, it's super cool looking, but your fish would be way happier in something bigger.
