This sticky needs serious updating, all of the links in the primary article are dead and gone.

1 gallon i would say is to small, but mine are in 2 gallon tanks with no filter or anything but i do do water changes very often to keep it clean and healthy. ive had them live 4 years and more in this kind of tank, for me at least.

My betta and the betta before him didn't have filters... But my betta Neptune has a large tank and he seems pretty happy. It's really sad to see these tiny vases at the pet shop that don't even have enough room for the betta to turn around...
I got my old betta and my new one from Pet Co and all the bettas there are either sick, dead, or dying :/ There were one or two baby bettas that were okay, though...

My fish is in a one gallon. I was given a smaller one for him but felt like it wasn't right. The one gallon is all I could afford. I have rocks which he loves. He seems very happy. I'm planning on adding a heater. I was told by the pet store lower 70s was ok. Now I know it's not. I'm also planning on getting a different plant. His is plastic, and i fear it's edges might be too sharp. He is not filtered, but I clean him often, and don't have issues with it getting too filthy.

I'm just wondering why people believed those rice paddies were tiny to begin with.

My dad was born and raised in Cambodia. He grew up on a rice farm for part of his life, and he went fishing in the rice fields all the time. He caught a lot of betta fish, and ate the "normal" looking ones, but kept the "pretty" ones as pets. The rice fields are generally filled with a lot of water, by no means any "puddles". Those puddles would only happen when the season was over and the water naturally drained away or evaporated. The betta fish that didn't swim away before either of those two things happened would simply die shortly after. Other than that, bad rain season.

He told me they tasted good. @_@ I just hope he doesn't decide to eat either of my boys as a midnight snack. T_T The ones he did keep he raised off mosquito larvae and some sort of vegetable that betta fish apparently love to eat.
