This tank is too small for ANY fish. In order to maintain stable water chemistry, tanks for fish should be at least 10 gallons. With truly excellent filtration and conscientious testing and adjustments, some can get away with 5 gallon tanks. But no fish, bettas included, should ever be kept in anything smaller. The fluctuations in water chemistry will stress them and weaken their immune system, and they will life a short and miserable life. Don't do this - a fish is a live animal capable of feeling pain and distress. It's not a decoration.
That having been said, this is an absolutely great price for a small enclosure that is appropriate for raising caterpillars or other small invertebrates. It allows for easy viewing, keeps them contained, and has a removable divider so you can keep two animals separate. The hood has more restrained ventilation than a Kritter Keeper, which means it will retain humidity better. Thumbs up for raising caterpillars, small mantids, small stick insects, young scorpions, or young tarantulas.
Perfect for young kids to watch interesting insects or arachnids grow!
