It does work for a betta if it is the only living thing in the tank besides maybe a live plant.

You know what a 2.5 gallon can be great for a betta and in some cases it is better than a 5 gallon....anyone who knows about betta will tell you that. But i know you have a 10 gallon and that is okay too.

Bigger tank more exercise but 2.5 or 5 at least they can still get exercise.

Makes sense to me how many coordinated drunks do you see? I am pretty sure you are not supposed to use sand for lizards.

i've heard sand as substrate for lizards leads to them eating it along with their food, then getting impacted bowels and eventually dying painfully of intestinal necrosis.

oh and the "gallon per inch" rule applies to bettas...provided you include the length of their tail! :p

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
