Debating on Betta

How would a betta do in a one bedroom/really small apartment?

That would be a perfect pet for you :) A 2.5 or 5 gallon tank doesn't take up much space and will be a nice focal point for any room.

Welcome to the forum

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Bettas are great for small spaces. Beware though, it's hard to have just one!! Welcome!

Well, since a betta lives in a tank it's not going to care about how big your apartment is Seriously though, as long as you have space for a small decent sized tank a betta would be great

No betta yet, just two cats: an Aby and a DMH.
