I can't get a larger tank sadly. I have little room in my "Fish Room/Bedroom"/ I know they are supposed to have more room but I have seen bettas in tiny bowls live for 3 years and some of ours have lived in 1 gals when they get sick because we didn't take good care sadly. I am certain that our current one will be fine. I tried giving him hidey spots and a hammock and he panicked. He got really stressed and kept going around in circles, er triangles, around the tank until I took them out. I think after he calms down overall, we can add some.

I got it fixed!! My shrimp died and the water was cloudy (don't now how, he was recently dead and it got that way within minutes but maybe it came in with the fake plant) and I changed the water and added about 5 MTS. I added in some plastic aquarium decoration think that you can kinda build yourself and made it so the top rounded edge piece is near the surface so he can rest and I'm going to get some live plants for my babies and also pick him up one of the nice wide betta hammocks soon.

He unfurled!!! He still hasn't eaten that I know of. His ventral are a gorgeous red with blue edging and a little white tip on the end. He has stress stripes still but he has calmed down so much is it possible they are just coloration?

My baby was flaring like crazy this morning at his reflection in his tank. He ate some of a shrimp that he killed. He is flaring SO MUCH. His fins are stretched and he is a very blue.
