I do have 3 in gallon containers but I certainly wouldn't go smaller than that. I put one of my new ones in a 2 1/2 gallon critter keeper. I'm gonna put a heater in there for him soon.

nothing smaller than 1 gallon, which is the minimum in my mind.

Since these fish originally come from puddles in rice patties where they eat mosquito larvae and other bugs, 75 gallons is a good-sized puddle, but not overly so. He eats everything, but his favorite foods are frozen brine shrimp and frozen blood worms. Yummy!

Keeping them in a coffee mug-sized cup is pure greed though. Im glad you people are giving yours such good homes though.

Dominus Patrus bla bla bla, I give you my blessings :)

put yourself into your bettas shoes for example...

if you were a betta would you want to be confined to a small space? not alot of room to swim and be able to show off your beautiful fins?

Someday I may upgrade the 3 in gallon containers. They are well taken care of and they get their water changed regularly.

No, I didn't think it was directed at me. :) I do plan someday to upgrade. I'm just kind of like, out of space on my dresser. lol I grew up (in the 60's) listening to a record that my parents had, by a folk group. One of my favorite songs on it was called Yerakina. It was a Greek song about a girl who went to the spring to fill up her water jug. So, when I got my first female betta, I wanted to name her Yerakina. :)

I'd definitely say you are addicted! lol Its so easy to get addicted because they are so beautiful and have such great personalities. I started out with just 1, then a neighbor of mine who has NO compassion at all for animals (and likes people to think she is a big animal advocate) left her betta with me when she went on vacation. She didn't want him back. She said he wasn't made of gold, could easily be replaced and she wasn't going to fool with him by doing regular water changes. He was the best thing to happen to me because that was how I got addicted. :) He was the sweetest little fish and had a wonderful personality. I still miss him.
