Question Are they always this active?

I'm new to Betta's and my little guy Fin is so active! He swims around far more actively than my goldfish ever did. He is in a 20 litre - 5 gallon tank that is heated.

When I chose him at the petshop, there were 6 to choose from. Fin was certainly the most alert one there, that's why I chose him.

So, is this normal for them to be swimming around so much? He seems real happy.

Well your definitley taking good care of him because ,contrary to popular belief, bettas are active little fish! The only reason a lot of people say they are lethargic is because often people dont give them proper care. This pic gave me de ja vu because he looks EXACTLY like my first betta midnight. Love the tank btw.
