Really? A 1 gallon is small and it makes it look like you can add whatever you want too mall for even a Betta.

I've heard that a 1 gallon is enough for a long-finned male, provided all the necessary care is occuring. But if you find that your bettas are happier in a larger tank, then by all means, spoil him. :]

Opinion on the matter vary. personally, I do not mind 1 gallons provided the owner does the required amount of water changes. However, finding a heater is kinda hard. Other then being small, one issue with 1 gallons is finding a heater for it. I have one but only use it for new fish for quarentine. I will say that bettas almost always seem happier in larger tanks..whenever i move them from 3 gallon kritter keepers to a divided 10 gallon - they are more active, build more bubblenests and their colors are much more vibrant.

I'm feeling a little wowed right now. I came home today to deceased Pleco. Speckles was his name. He and Passion were always playing together. I have no idea how he passed but he's gone. RIP buddy.

I use a one gallon as a qt tank for new fish and as my hospital tank. Otherwise they're in 2.5 or bigger and I still am paranoid about water changes. I do 25-50% every other day. In the one gallon I do at least 50% every day. My fish don't mind water changes anymore. They're pretty used to it by now and just go into their caves until it's over.

The one gallon ignores and the average person who buys that tank will not clean it enough. My Betta is long finned and in a 10 gallon he is healthy, active, and never been sick. My female fins are a bit damaged shes been sick a few time she is in a 20 gallon comminuty tank.

You're totally basing this off opinion. People CAN take care of bettas in 1 gallon tanks and heat them. Not all breeders have the space to house individual bettas in 10 gallon tanks.

I did not say it was impossible the average person who buys that will not change the water often enough and heat it. It is harder to heat and clean a small tank but is possible plus a breeder on average cleans the tank and keeps the water warm.It is not an opinion that many people improperly care of Bettas. Plus a breeder does not keep them forever unless they are good quality.
