so... i just bought my first betta today (little Xavier! he's so pretty!) after wanting one for a while. and of course, i did very little research beforehand, because that's how i am, i guess. haha. this is the first site i found when i came home to start finding out more (so VERY helpful!), and now i feel like a TERRIBLE betta mother for having him in only a 1 gal tank!
i'm on amazon now searching for a 2.5 or 3 gal... even after spending about $75 on all his accessories today (really, i'll only be out about $20 i spent on his tank. everything else i can still use) - i want him to be happy and healthy, and i'm so jealous of all your beautiful tanks! i'll post a pic when i get his new setup. :)
