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.

I just took it down, moved the fish and about half the water to another container, cleaned it and put it back. It was pretty easy. I would fill it back up with a cleaned out Gatorade jug, lol.

That little guy lived through hurrican Katrina. He was stuck ere for about a week with no one to take care of him. He died about a year later.

edit: seems I forgot to mention the triple betta keeper...with clear dividers. Looks to be about a gallon..maybe 1.5.
I actually saw some decent 5-gal tanks in that link. I think the best thing to do would be give great reviews about the 5 gal tanks and how they are perfect for bettas. I actually saw the tank that I had my first betta in there. The 5 gal hex. If you give positive reviews maybe that will encourage people to buy them for bettas.

That "Tiniest Tank Ever" video on youtube is just cruel. I can't believe there were even 26 people who liked it. I feel so sorry for that poor fish.
Sadly, I followed a link to a video of a male and female betta living in a tank together...and the comments were full of people condoning and even encouraging it, including a person who is doing it in a ONE GALLON bowl. So much sadness at the ignorance that abounds in this world. :(

I just found the video you're talking about, this one? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPT59...eature=related

That is so cruel I can't even!

I just read more through his comments and such, apparently that betta is actually living in a 10 gallon tank and that little bowl is her temporary tank while he's cleaning.

Just thought I'd post a few betta 'tanks' that haven't been posted yet that I found online.
Note the 4th tank the divider in the middle

I just had a discussion with a lady at Petsmart about those stupid vases with the plants.
She had come back in with a dead betta. It lasted her two weeks. She had it in a 1 gallon container with no heat or filtration and was feeding it 5 pellets a day. She said all the fish did was just lay there, it never wanted to eat.

She then said that her friend had a betta in a vase with a plant and that it ate the plant roots. Her friend only feeds it one pellet per week.

My response to her was that her friend was slowly starving the fish. She looked a little mad.

No offence but I honestly get annoyed buy these threads
I've e-mailed various pet stores and even called them, but nothing was EVER done about anything I asked about or complained about. You really can't mwake a difference anymore -.-
