I don't see anything wrong with keeping them in gallon containers as long as their water is kept clean. I do believe the bgger tanks are best but that they can do alright in smaller containers as long as the water changes are kept up with.

Yes, I've had Henry in a 1 gal for quite sometime (If you can consider 2 months "quite sometime" =P), and he's doing just fine. The main reason I'm upgrading is so I can use a heater; I live in MN, and I really don't feel comfortable letting him live in an unheated tank in the winter, especially in a dorm room.

Plus, on almost every site I've been to, they say that the recommended minimum tank size is 2 gal, but that many people do perfectly fine with a 1 gal; it all depends on the dedication of the fishie mommy/daddy (as I like to refer to fish owners.)

The bigger they are, the easier they are to keep clean. I had a betta in a 4 gallon uncycled tank and it was a pain in the neck to keep clean. All of mine are in 1 gallons, 2 gallons and 2.5 gallons.

Yeah thats really the main reason (from an owners stand point) to upgrade.. the bigger the tank the less frequent your water changes.. leaving you more time to just enjoy your fish babies :)
