If I were you, Id go for a 10G, since size and price might be an issue.....
Hi
As I have posted before I would love a 10Gal tank but there is not a space for it at the moment. Not due to the size of the tank but to the weight. I just don't have anything strong enough to place a 10gal set up on for now.
I feel that everything I am learning on here now to take care of my small 2.5Gal tank will always be helpful when I CAN get a larger one. I have found many new Betta lovers , not just on this site, but on many websites focused on keeping Bettas start out with the 2.5/3Gal aquarium. I (and my Bow the Betta ) do appreciate each and every help given to me here.

You don't HAVE to have a larger tank. The size you have will do just fine.Some people just prefer larger tanks. If I were getting a tank, I'd go with the 2.5 gallon.

hi
I did a complete water test today and it was odd. The Nitrite and Nitrate were fine at "0" but the ammonia was .25 or a bit lower and the pH was 7.5. m This after a 50% water change Sat. I dont know how one little Betta can create so much ammonia so fast? There are no live plants in the tank, I watch to make sure he eats the pellets fed, (about 1 pellet 2-3 Maybe I am feeding my Betta too much but he still looks thin. His fins are growing back I think.
Is pH 7.5 too high? I read one place it was ok but another said neutral 7 was good.
Hope i'm not driving everyone here crazy with these
questions, sorry.
Guess another partial water change is due Tuesdau, maybe just 25% this time

Thanks
Arlie

I just looked up a post by Kim, where she answered someone else's questions about ph. She said that bettas can be fine in the high 7's and that hers does fine at 7.6.

Reason #1 why bettas in little bowls or cubes are a bad idea :)
