Really?! Are you Kidding me?! Really?!

"Fish are friends, not food." was not even close to the thought that this manufacturer had when creating this new Betta death trap:

****




Ugh - LOOK AT THE FISH IN THIS PIC... Does this not make buyers want to find something else?!

Oh dear. Colorful, they may be. But they're not toys. Just because they're as addictive as candy, doesn't mean they should be housed like candy.

According to some blogger - who thought these were a "Thrifty decoration idea" - said in her post, and I Quote, "Well its better than the little cups they come in so... I saved him!"

Taken a fish from a cup o death and putting the betta in a death trap is not saving. Isn't the lid on tight? That would just be death.

"To change the water you must insert quarter then turn, water will come out slowly. You also get rewarded one gum ball for ever water change." I totally made that up lol. It would be a good idea to reward the person, of course they gotta buy the gumballs XD

Eww pooped on gumballs!!
I think it's a cute idea but I agree, bettas are not toys or decoration. Sure it would be cool in a child's room if it was bigger and it could support a heater etc. I wonder though, would a betta mind if it's not natural scenery? He would need a hidey hole and some plants in there... Not suitable at ALL.

I don't like it at all but is much larger than others I've seen.
What I think is ironic is that this fish has mayor stress stripes... "saved him"? Riiiiight.

There is another thread here somewhere on this forum with all kinds of messed up "Betta" tanks. Some people just seem to think that bettas will live through anything. Fish truly are not regarded as highly as they should be.

I work at a petstore, and I get so many people asking me how to get their bettas to live longer. So I tell them they need a 2.5 gallon at least, a heater, plants and a hidey cave, and a lid. One lady was receptive, and just asked if it could be done with fifty dollars. I told her absolutely. The others often leave without getting the fish, or disregard my advice and get the tiniest betta tank we have. I try to give them better lives. :(
