    Came across this company from an article in the newest Pet Age magazine. I hope both Petco and Petsmart go in this direction for how they sell Bettas. This is ingenious. What ya think?

    True...your right. I should of labeled the title differently. I was going for the more humane aspect of it all as they are 'filtered' cups. Honestly, I don't think the cup idea will ever go away.

    I don't get it. What's the difference?

    It's a set up filtration system. Each cup is filtered and water circulates through each cup individually. Better condition for the fish.

    It looked to me like they have water changing from the back of the cups, is that what you see?
    If so at least it's something.

    Yes, there is a in flow and a out flow connector to each cup. When someone pulls the cup from the base, it stops the flow.

    The big problem with tiny cups is the water quality. This is an improvement.

    The only thing I question is the use of cell phone video to try to sell their product. For goodness sake, at least use a point and shoot. :)

    This looks pretty cool! I wonder if the main unit is able to have a heater, so that the fish are in the right temp. They are tropical fish after all.

    This is an improvement though! I wonder if we can get a petition or something at change.org to push these out to Petco & Petsmart.

    No matter rather you fishlorians like it or not, cups will never go away! It is the most efficient way to keep a lot of bettas at a low cost with minimum space. This is a vast improvement over anything I've seen, it's to bad it will cost too much for any of the big box pet retailers to bother installing, unless the inventor can prove that they will make more money having this unit vs throwing a few bettas away :(

    Our LFS has this. I just saw it the other day, it had a sign that said to ask an associate for help, I wonder if there's concern about water. I doubt it's because of a concern for the animals. Unfortunately if the water doesn't have a quick and easy shut off, people will not always ask for an associate for help.

    This is great! At least the poor fish have good water quality:). I always feel so bad seeing bettas in those disgusting cups, I hope some of these stores like petco and pet smart start using them. I wonder if they're heated though

    Doesn't look like it's set up for heating, Since it's advertised for other types of fish, invertebrates etc.
