New to the forum

Hi everyone,

I'm new on the forum (obviously).
I'm here to learn more about betta since most of the pet stores around my area hire anyone just to sell stuff and not care about the product/fishes, and the other ones are too expensive for my taste ;)

I'm planning to buy a betta soon-ish for my son bedroom (2 y/o) since he love fishes so much (I already have a 45gallons tank in the living room) he's gentle with it and doesn't knock on the glass so yay.

I'm thinking about a 5 gallon tank with lots of hiding spot for the fish and all.

I would be very happy for suggestion of tanks, brands and whatnot.

Hi and welcome to the forum! were you only going to put a betta in the tank? If so a 5gal would be fine. But to get more fish you would probably want a 10 gal or larger. What kind of fish are in your 45 gallon? I would love to see it!

10gal- Peeta VT
10gal- Chester

Just one betta.

As for my 45g I have a rainbowshark thats too aggresive to mix with anything else... so he has the whole tank to him self for now.
might try to change the layout and put more hideout and pop a couples of gourami though.
