*facepalm* to all of those tanks . . . .

I keep my fishies in 2.5's and rubbermaids. Compared to some of those erm - candleholders? - my babies have lots of room to swim. I cringe whenever I see those things. >:(

So it would be bad to keep a betta in a lets say, 55 gallon community tank? Wont he only mark a section of the tank as his territory? Because when I move out of my parents house and get my own place I would like to have a big community tank with a betta.

You can get a 55 gallon tank and stock it with 1 male betta and a couple other fish that the betta can live with in a tank that big. Otos, ghost shimp, corys... Someone else can give you a little more information on this. I recommend having the tank heavily planted with lots of hiding places though if you're wanting to make it a community tank.

yup, i was really impressed with the lady at the pet store when she was helping my boyfriend picking out guppies because she seemed to be really knowledgeable. so i decided to ask her about bettas and she said she has 4. i asked what size tank they are in she said, "tank? i keep them in vases...they are puddle fish, they dont need tanks." she changes their water once a month and feeds them once a week. no heater. she said "um...what? they dont need that..."

needless to say... i wasnt impressed with her anymore.

I've seen 8 ounce bowls. Heck the cup they're already in is at least 11 ounces!! The smallest I put a betta in is a 16 ounce cup with 1 inch of water for maybe 30 minuets during a water change.
