So, i've been lurking around this forum long enough to see that Betta's, although are believed to be happy in a small tank, but, shouldn't be kept that way.
So, a local aquarium store where i live has opened recently. I walked into the store today and was VERY surprised by the size of the store, and, the quality of the merchandise.
The store has several saltwater tanks which are VERY kept up. They look amazing. it really appears that this guy KNOWS his stuff.
So, me, being all proud of the fact that I have my Betta in a 10 gallon heated, filtered aquarium, figured I would share my story.
To my surprise, the guy looked horrified. He began to tell me how the Betta's HATE to be in a big tank. He said they prefer very small contained areas
I have to admit, this guy really seemed to know what he was talking about, but, why would he say that? He said in a 10 gal tank, the Betta will just sit in a corner and not move. but, he's wrong, my little guy explores all over the place in my tank.
