Well okay then XD I'm happy that's not true.

I don't know if this boy is sick or not but he isn't very active. He doesn't want to swim around and he is always butt down and head up by the surface. He eats fine but I guess he's just depressed?

I changed his water, haven't put him in a tank or anything yet. I don't want to put him in one of my extra bowls and stress him out and then have my mom bring home another 5 gallon (like she's supposed to) so I think I'm just going to keep him in his cup and clean it everyday until I can get him in a tank.

Here is a picture of him in clean water, basically. he made it dirty over night and I have not cleaned it yet XD Also, as you can see his tail is an absolute MESS. I guess he did it himself unless he was born with it like that.

I don't. Petsmart should sell some right? I'll have to ask the lady to show me where it is next time I go in.

So, my mom brought me home another tank. This time from the Walmart in the next town over XD

Here are some pictures of it set up. No water yet. I want to see what my mother thinks of it. Right now it's in my room but we might move it into the living room or the kitchen. Don't know yet.

One question... is the filter that comes with this tank set too powerful for a betta?

Also, would it be OK to split this tank later on? It's 5g so that means split in half it would be 2.5 on each side.. That's the minimum size recommended right?

Looks great!!!!

You COULD divide it, but it is kinda pushing it. if you kept up with your WCs and cycled it, you'd be fine. :)

Thanks everybody.

For those of you who have bought this tank from Walmart before -- is the filter that comes with it too strong for a Betta?
