I was tempted to start one of these threads myself...

http://www.wag.com/fish/subcat=Aquar..._-cat-_-1-NV3N

a site that almost exclusively sells "betta" tanks. worst offenses include a .6 gal that's impossibly thin, one filled with jagged glass gravel, and a clock. also, all of these recommend feeding only a few times a week. And I think the site filtered out a negative review I posted.

edit: seems I forgot to mention the triple betta keeper...with clear dividers. Looks to be about a gallon..maybe 1.5.

These are horrible for the poor fish. I was even telling my daughter earlier that I feel bad about our community tank (29 gallon) being too small for whats in there! Any fish or animal in nature would not stay in these tiny places! Here's a couple bad ones I found if you don't mind me adding! At least the full hanging bowl is better then the wall one. I personally prefer 5- 10 gallons.

We had one of the wall hanging half globes at one point. It held about a gallon. It wasn't too bad. The betta that we had in it lived for 3 years.

I saw those online & wondered how they held up weight wise on the wall.

Dragonii,
I thought they were smaller than that,I'm sorry. :( How did you clean it? 3 years is GREAT!!! The ones in my past (except for one) lived about 6 month or 1-2 years. Most were from WalMart. That exception was my Betta "Crusher" who lived about 4 years. He was in a 1.5 gallon, I think? I only recently with my current two Bettas and other fish have upgraded to the bigger sizes. Sorry to have assumed.

It's sick... some people are more into looking cool and fashinable rather than keeping a poor innocent animal alive... they suffer miserably in those things....
