Top Fin® Betta Connection Betta Tank is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for temporary needs, NOT a full time home! I bought this tank about two weeks ago and I am already researching an immediate upgrade! The quality of the tank is good for the price, but 0.25 gallons is just NOT enough space for a betta fish. My fish has no room to swim around and the one plant decoration that I placed inside takes up all of the space. However, bettas enjoy having places to lounge so I do not want to remove it. Also, there is no way to use a heater while the top of the tank is on (optimum temperature for a betta is 78-80 degrees) because the holes in the top won't allow the bulk of a heater or outlet through. A heater is also incompatible with this tank because I don't believe any heater on the market will not result in overheating with a tank this small. My water temp got up to 92 degrees after inserting my heater (which required me to leave the top of the tank incompletely closed). All in all, this is a cost-efficient and solid option if you plan to take your fish along while traveling, but otherwise it is an inhumane full time home for a betta. I gave three stars because the quality of the tank is good and if used correctly it could be a useful for traveling or as a temporary home for your betta during routine tank cleanings.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from so small...why can't y'all make bigger tanks? The minimum tank size for a betta is 2.5 gallons, but 5 or 10 gallons is recommended. Betta fish are still fish that produce waste, so they also need a filter! and they're tropical and cannot produce their own body heat; they rely on the temperature of the water to regulate bodily functions like digestion and blood circulation, and need temps of 78-82 to be healthy, which means they also need a heater :) ALSO, with the size of the tank (.5gal) its nearly impossible to cycle properly ("cycling" refers to the nitrogen cycle wherein bacteria in the filter break down ammonia and turn it into nitrite, then another bacteria takes that nitrite and turns it into nitrate. nitrate is safe for fish but only in small quantities (refer to a water test kit) (also cycling takes about a month, and should be done before adding fish) while a filter and a heater can be added later, it would honestly just way cheapter to pay 10-15$ for a 5-10 gallon tank and add a heater and filter instead of spending money on a tank that you can't use to properly house your fish. plus your fish will be happier, healthier, and live longer! always do as much research as you can for any pet you intend to purchase, and give them at least the basics, and then upgrade when and where you can :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from horrible bowls for any fish putting any fish in here is just cruel. if you think it looks cute, i hope you do research in the future because bowls like these are horrible and not suitable for a betta to live and THRIVE in. Save your money and get atleast a 3 gallon tank for them. They just swim in their non-cycled ammonia filled water. Very disappointing

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is too small for a Betta. This is too small for a Betta fish. Betta fish do best in at least a 2.5 gallon tank with a heater and filter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Maybe? I am planning on purchasing a baby beta which are like a centimeter, so I think I might get this just until it grows up and then of course I will get a tank uprgrade, but I think I need a small tank for the baby so it doesn’t get lost in he tank

How long can a betta live in this?

Asked by: Sprinklepupmarshmello
Depends on the fish and how well you take care of it. No fish will be happy in this tank, but if it's a temporary tank, they'd probably be okay for a couple weeks so long as you did full water changes everyday.
