I know I want to upgrade Hannibal since my other half wants to do a theme in his tank. XD Keeps trying to get me to replace Hannibal's barrel decoration with different kinds of skulls but they're all too big for the tank.
The 5 gallon was decorated like it is to kind of show off Gwynfor's subtle colors. He was blue, pink, and purple under white dragon scales. He looked magnificent in the tank.
What tail type is your betta?
Not sure. I know he's not a fancy betta. The container I bought him in just said male betta. I suppose he is considered a "common betta" or something like that. These are some random pictures on the internet with bettas that have tails similar to his (although his aren't as long, could be possible he's the human equivalent of a teenager or young adult). He's also much darker than they are, but about the same general color.

I have the 2.5 mini bow tank, and it works perfectly! You need to baffle the filter, but it fits easily on my dresser. :D I would get a bigger tank, but I have no idea how to cycle.
My fish isn't very big right now, so 2.5 would probably be decent. Although he has began to make a bubble nest in the corner of his 2 liter container! Despite my doubts, maybe I'm doing something right (or maybe he's just finally coming out of his shell). I feel bad it won't last because I have to frequent partial water changes- but it's still nice to know he's feeling a little more comfortable.
A question if you don't mind: What does it mind to baffle a filter?
Since most filters are too strong for bettas, you must slow the flow by baffling it. This is a great step-by-step tutorial on how to baffle your filter. Personally, I use the technique on page 4, since it's a bit easier and better for smaller tanks with smaller filters. :D
If you want a bigger tank, then the mini bow 5 gallon looks to be good, too.
