I went to a PetSmart and rand into an "experenced" fishkeeper employee who had had tanks for 10 years and currently had 6 Betta! I was telling her about my Betta and how I was going to eventually move him up to a 10gal. She told me that was a TERRIBLE idea! She said the Betta would freak out any hide in a corner and never come out because of all the space. She said they lived in little puddles of nothing in the wild (which she clamed to have seen them in) and are fine in 2 gallon tanks. She said that Bettas are nasty little fish and you have to do a COMPLETE water change and clean the tank every other day to once a week because they are the only fish that needs fresh water. She also said a seashell was a good adition to my 2gal tank (raises pH) and to only feed him every other day! Also, she said the people on fish forums have no idea what they are talking about and do more harm than good! *eye roll*
