I have some room on the desk on my room and now wonder-

Do I

I say get another betta ;3 As long as it is heated and preferably cycled, I say go for it!
Or hey if your mom would get into proper betta care, that would be someone you can talk to about fish.
You dont even know how much I wish I knew a betta keeper in real life. lol

5 gallons seems too big for a hospital tank, because sick bettas often need 100% daily water changes, which doesnt sound fun with a tank of that size.
