Breeding Betta Fish Tanks

I took this picture with my cellphone camera in a store where the sale girl suggested this to hold the betta fish before and after breeding them. I took the picture to show you what not to buy! You would not want to stress your betta fish before of after breeding them by putting them in such a small space!

I also agree. I got on of those jst because i had two betas and at the bottom there was a plug and it DRAINED ALL THE WATER FRM MY TANK!!!!! >:o i was soooooo scared wen i saw the tank didnt hav ANY water and my fish were floppin around. both lived but they caught a terrible desise which made them die! :'( but now i hav a new baby whoh is sooooo nice to other fish. :)

Thank you for this post, it breaks my heart to think people are keep their Betta in such small bowls and even worse that pet stores are tell them that is ok to do!

I have always raised my bettas in these tanks. They did perfectly fine. No stress. Go hug a tree.

Haha... Hug a tree... Betta fish are typically lazy when they are not spawning or killing. Their natural habitat is basically a puddle. They prefer confined spaces. As long as you keep up on water quality and they eat regularly, they will be happy and healthy. These are not dogs kept in kennels. To say they need to roam free is just uneducated. Besides, if you are buying them from a fish store, chances are they have been living in a cup since they were a month old.
