Smile You go Glenn Coco!

So hi guys!
1. I'm BACK(:
So I just had a questionnnnnnnn.
I just recently got my betta, Glenn Coco, a Mini Bow and it's a one gallon a believe (I got it from my friend). And well he seems to have so much space so I was wondering if there was any little guy I could add to the tank that Coco won't eat?

Momma's chillin in the tank with the kidsss.

In a 1 galon? No. You should not add anything to it.

+1 You might also want to consider the possibility of upgrading to a larger tank just for the betta.

Yeah, a one gallon tank is the minimal for one betta. He'll be fine of course in there as long as the water changes are kept up :D You cannot have any other fish unless you have 10+ gallons, or the ammonia may spike and kill both fish.
3+ gallons is where you can have bottom feeders, like snails or shrimp I believe. 5 gallons is better IMO, but acceptable in 3 as long as you keep up with the water changes and have hiding spots. Live plants are a fun thing to try out though, if it sounds interesting! :D

IMO/E-the long fin male will be fine in a 1gal unfiltered tank long term provided that water quality is maintained.
If you add live rooted and/or floating plants you could add either shrimp and/or common snails-remembering that often the Betta may not tolerate shrimp and they end up as a snack or the common snails take over if not kept in check.

To maintain water quality in a 1gal unfiltered tank without live plants-Twice weekly water changes of 1-50% water only and 1-100%....

Look forward to pics....
