Yeah....those filters are really no good. Cheap little things that don't do much more then push water around ;P

That filter you have looks like a good one though; you can certainly try it out and see how things go. But don't forget to pick up a heater!

Haha, ahh, one of the most enjoyable parts of getting a new betta friend, the name xD Best of luck! I'm horrible with names, lol.

I have mine all alone (for now) in a 36 gallon (140 litters). He goes around swimming, entering in caves, and taking naps at the deck of a battleship or inside a java fern. They definitely love large places.

EDIT: Silly me, sorry for making tank comparisons i thought you had him in a 20 gallon.
Never the less indeed 20 litres is a very good home for a betta. He has space to swim explore and play.


Mine is an exception. It just happens that i dont have other fish right now for him to have friends. 20 is just fine for a betta to have a cozy home.

I keep one of my bettas in a 20 litre (5 US gallons) aquarium without any issues. He's active, colourful and full of personality :) It's down to personal preference but I think 20 litres is a fantastic home for your fish, it's also good because it means his heater won't take away from his swimming room too much (a common problem in smaller tanks)!

Don't worry, 5 gallons for a single Betta is fine. I recommend 2.5-3 gallons +. (I have no idea what that is in liters) He'll be really happy, just make sure he has a couple of good little hiding spots. (:

each litre is multiplied by 0.20 for us gallons or 0.22 for uk. Cant remember which is which, though the difference is negligible
