I think I'm going to divide it again....should I? Then I could get more!! :) haha!(if my mom will even let me get anymore!) she keeps saying I have to stop at sometime but I just can't help it!!!! I'v got the betta-bug!!!!!!!! Goodness it's just so hard to stop! I know I have to stop and now I'm going to really try but I dunno....maybe they would be happier in the 2.5 any ideas??? :/
I personally suggest 2.5 gallons for a single betta. My VT is in one and totally digs it. If you keep them in the larger tank, maybe try adding more plants and decoration? I've heard that extra, empty swimming room can make them spazz. Plus they totally love the hiding spaces! :)

Pah feeding time makes mine spazz On a sad note, I am now using a 1 gallon bucket for medicating my koi plakat :/ Stupid store.... She came to me sick and is now showing symptoms of columnaris! Now the one 1 gallon is quarantined, she and all objects used for her will be too until further notice. She only lays on the bottom, poor baby.

AND that is another use for a one gallon. Medicating. I know some people had told me to use a 5 gallon. But then I would feel the urge to break down the tank, sanitize it with my vinegar/hot water mix twice over, rinse three-five times, and then start it up again. Why would I do that? >.>

Its cheaper to medicate smaller water quantities and when you buy expensive meds its worth it not to waste it.

Choclate, I know you're concerned about tank size but these members who have posted here take good care of their bettas so they aren't being mistreated or anything by being in smaller containers. Also, I believe that Sena asked that no negative comments be made in this thread.

Your tanks are so cute!!

IMHO theres no such thing as spoiling a betta.
Yes our bettas may not be the same as the ones living in the wild but you cant tell me that these bettas would rather be in a tank reguardless of what size than a pond.
100 gallon tank VS pond?
POND. :)
