Shirleythebetta -- My girl's really active, and since she's a female she's got much shorter fins. She's in a 2 gallon right now and it seems a little small for her, which is why I decided to get a bigger one -- it will be a really drastic size in change for her, though, so I suppose we'll see how she does! If it ends up being too much for her, I can always put in a divider or move her back to the smaller tank. I am really excited about decorating it! For one thing I'll be getting live plants, which I'm excited about -- Ann only has fake ones in her little home right now.
She really does help with the anxiety, she's been such a good little roommate so far! And there is something very therapeutic about having someone to care for, feed, clean the tank for etc...
Termato -- As long as your guy is happy and healthy I think it's fine! 1 gallon is much better than how a lot of people unfortunately keep bettas. The two girls in the room next to mine have a beautiful blue male crowntail in one of those littlelittle bowls and I feel so bad for him.
