What were they thinking? If you give this to a little kid, they're going to shake the poor fish around.

I was just about to say that. They'd throw the beta across the room! That's horrible it's about as bad as it gets. Id rather see WAY overstocked tanks them That crap

They probably only care about making money rather than thinking about the poor fish Absolutely terrible. I'm not sure which is worse: This or the storage containers they use at petco for the bettas.

THAT IS HORRIFIC! :'(

I saw a picture of a betta in a clock on the wall. Imagine the horrible noise.... :'(

I hate how fish are treated like ornaments sometimes, instead of the intelligent living beings that they are.

They're smart little critters. Ours gets all excited when we come near him and swims up to us, follows our fingers, and has quite the personality.

I just read the FAQ and apparently bettas acclimate to room temp. No, they need a heater unless you live in a warm climate all the time. They did write 74-82 though, so that is good. But you can't put a heater in the bear.

And they perpetuate the myth that they should be in a small space. Ugh!

At least they tell you to supervise the child and change the water frequently. But. Who knows if everyone that orders this "toy" will do that
