It's rumor bettas live in small puddles. This is wildly incorrect - in Thailand they live in expansive rice paddies and rivers; a male betta can have a territory of up to 3 square meters. Much bigger than this tiny bowl.
A betta should be kept in nothing less than 3 gallons of water, because of a little thing we call the nitrogen cycle.
Fish secrete ammonia, from 'breathing' and from their poo. Ammonia builds up in the water and is deadly toxic to them - in a space this small, the wastes would build up so fast it would be impossible for you to control the amount unless you did a water change every few hours. You'd end up with a miserable, stunted fish that would die long before it's natural time. (Bettas can live up to five years normally).
So even setting aside that this thing is cheap, it's cruel and inhumane and preys on ignorance, don't buy it.
This bowl seemed perfect at first. A great size, great lights, great everything. But then the bowl's walls fogged up, and I couldn't see my fish. This bowl was part of my fish's death, you see. When the walls got hazy, I couldn't tell that my fish had fin rot (caused by dirty water). I got to admit that I should have changed his water more often, but if I had seen my fish through the walls I would have noticed the fin rot quicker, and might have been able to save him.
So I advise that you do not buy this bowl. If you do buy it, you will enjoy it for a little while before the walls get fogged up, and then having to buy another tank, or another fish, or both.
