Ack! My daughter and I just bought a Betta today, an I got it a one gallon bowl so it would be light enough for her to lift it and change the water on her own. Guess it will end up being a backup bowl. I didn't want to start with a full setup if she might not remain interested. I've had aquariums and ended up keeping my Betta in a small bowl because the other fish attacked him. He lived in a tiny 3 cup bowl for 3 years! Now I feel bad, and was thinking the one gallon bowl was a good start. Well, give us a little time and we will get a better aquarium. It will be fun, and things seemed to have changed a bit since 20 years ago!
