That would actually be pretty cool to see. Meanwhile, I will be in the convincing stage of trying to get a bigger tank. If I can't my backup plan is getting a filter and heater for the 1 gallon.

So I went to Petsmart and looked around while the rest of my family was at the store next to it (don't worry I asked before I left lol), and I found a few good tanks that fit my price range. I'm actually now considering either a 2.5 Minibow, or I could even possibly get a 5 or 10 gallon and make a betta community (one betta with inverts or small fish)! I talked to my dad and he said he would try to see what tanks would be good based on our budget, so hopefully my future betta will live in something much bigger than a 1 gallon.

Off-topic: I almost walked out of that store with a beautiful red plakat betta before the cold, hard truth that I had no money with me nor a proper setup hit me and made me sad...

It's great that you thought of the Betta before yourself. I'm proud of you!

I think a 5 gallon would be perfect. 2.5 gallons are nice and small too but would be more stressful for your fish due to the larger number of water changes. Also, anything under a 5 gallon might not be heated safely.

ALSO: Did you remember the water conditioner? :D

I already have water conditioner at my house from awhile ago, so that's why I didn't add any to the budget list. And I just remembered a 5.5 gallon with a filter and hood for less than the 2.5 gallon, so I may get that actually...

I think I'm going a bit fish crazy

No I'm not crazy cuz of the 5.5 gallon size, it's because I'm already fantasizing about convincing my parents to let me get a 10 gallon and getting a betta and then neon tetras when the tank matures, and maybe some nice ghost shrimp SOMEONE HELP ME IM GOING MAD!!!!
