i thought petsmart cups were small but i found smaller...

today while visiting my the local pet shop, that i haven't visited in years i saw something i didn't remember seeing before. well first off let's start by saying that the petsmart cups for the bettas at my store holds about eh maybe 1 3/4-2 cups of water. well, the ones at this shop maybe were half the size. in width and height. most of the bettas were too big to even fully stretch out straight in the cups. and the ones that got to be in a heated tank were put in tiny little "betta holders" that were no bigger if not smaller than the cups the others were in.

:( Our LPS has tiny cups like that too.
The betta holders in the fish tanks look bad, but at least they get warmer water and filtration with those, so I think it's a better temporary housing:/
