animal abuse ?

One betta in a 2 litter soda bottle it's enough space for a single betta

So those pet-shop that sells bettas are animal abusers ? They put the bettas in little bowls and the bettas sit there for moths

YES yes and yes. They are. Its all about sales with the pet stores. Bettas are somewhat disposable to them. Of course a Betta can SURVIVE in a cup, and a dog can SURVIVE in a crate. But is that really any sort of life for that animal? Do whatever you want with your fish, but it is definitely kinder to them to give them space, and plants, and heat.

Not to be mean but the minimum size should be Atleast 1 gallon. If your not gonna put him in a tank, Atleast go get a 1 gallon fish bowl for the lil guy. He is definitely not happy in the small thing.

Pretty fish though, nice find!

Would you like to live in an 8X10 cubicle? I mean its not like you NEEED a bed and a bathroom to survive......LIKE I SAID before, do whatever you want with your fish, but you're not going to suceed in making everybody else feel/look stupid for saying that the animal would have a better quality of life in a larger tank.
