A local pet store near where I live has a new "get up" for their bettas that is just ridiculous. They have each betta in a little square cup BUT each cup is attached to a tube - air bubbles are blown into the cup through the tube and the poor bettas can't get away from the bubbles unless they hug the corner of their cup. Some of the bettas swim constantly from one side of their cup to the other trying to stay out of the bubbles. I asked an employee if they could possibly turn down the force of the bubbles - I told her that almost all of the bettas looked stressed. She told me that the bubbles are only on for 12 hours each day (only 12 hours - what are you talking about, I'm thinking) - why would anyone think this was a good idea????? The saddest thing is that this pet store is one of the better pet stores around - the water in the cups actually look pretty clean. I wish I had more money and space - I would liberate so many more bettas. I'm presently holding steady at 6 bettas.
