Okay so the first 2 pic's while not 1 gal are smaller but I have been using it to grow baby betta's from petco, and i am on my second one. once the baby is less shy, eating well, and grows a little I move to a 1 gal.
Before I was just using it for extra plant clippings. I change the water 100% daily but i don't scrub off the algae. This is in no way a permanent home.



this next one is a 1 gal which my blue gal is living in until i get the sorority up and running.
I change water 75% everyother day.



all my betta tanks are bare bottom right now until i get some eco sub strate or soil.

If I was going to set up a 1.5 gallon for a male to live in, how would I maintain that tank. I've only done cycled tanks, so something this small would scare me. Also, how do you heat them? Sorry if these have been answered. :)

I use the Tetra brand 25w preset heaters for my 1gal-5gal tanks and they work fine for me year around.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this thread! Because I 100% agree that bettas can live happy/healthy lives in 1 gallon bowls/tanks. After all, anything is better than their dirty cups!

Currently each of my bettas are in a 1 gal. Each of the one gals are heated and decorated beautifuly. Each of their homes get a 25% change every 3 days and a 100% weekly, so their water is always fairly clean. They all love and appreciate their homes so I could care less on anyones criticism.

It is WRONG that some people are insulted and offended by others because of their bettas homes. We all provide the best we can for out bettas and deserve respect because of that. So please think before you post.

:)
