Basically the rule is (to a point) The smaller the tank the more effort and more difficult it is to keep something alive in it

I have a lot of Betta's Close to 50 right now and I house most all of them in 1 gallon tanks.

They get water changes every 2 or 3 days....
Most are cycled using Gravel, But the problem is small tanks can easily fluctuate so no matter the water, change is very important...... 1 gallon tanks are ok for grow out guppy fry..... But not adults...
For my guppies due to drop I use 3 gallon tanks..... then remove the fry with a turkey baster.... once the female is through she goes back to the main community tank.......

No I don't raise them I just love watching them and can't resist bringing home new betta's from the LFS. they are so beautiful, I have purchased many sickly betta's simple because I felt bad for them....
I keep my local walmart sold out of 1 gallon tanks, plus I run ads constantly looking for more,,
Walmart is suppose to be getting new stock in sometime soon... Getting anxious waiting as I need more Tanks!

I thought about raising Betta's But after seeing so many cooped up in these tiny cups dead or dying I ain't gonna add to their misery........... 1 mating can result in hundreds of young and thats one heck of a lot of young betta's to contend with........


Sell one of my betta's, Funny I was asked that same thing just the other night...
Unless your willing to give me 100 bucks there's none for sale....:)
I love my Betta's and love seeing things happy even more.

I am up way into the night sometimes simply changing water,, How could I go to bed knowing one might be in sickly water.. just can't do it... Animals depend on us, there lives are in our hands,,, do then proud.....
