Smile New bettas!

Hey everyone! I'm new to the betta fish community. I just got two. The pink one is named Champagne, the blue one is yet to be named. I honestly have absolutely no knowledge about anything Betta-related, but I'd like to learn! Can anyone whose experienced please tell me, by the photos, if they seem healthy? I assumed that they are both male because of their tails, but what kind of bettas are they? About how old do they look? I admit that their tanks are a bit small (1 gallon :S) but i plan on upgrading as soon as I get some more cash (5 gallon divided tank, maybe?) Well anywho, let me know what you guys think!
here are the photos:

thanks!

Welcome! The first thing you need to know about these fish is that they need a larger tank. From the pictures, it seems pretty small. You should get them 2.5 gallon tanks at least. You can get a 3 gallon Pet Keeper at Petco for $12.99. Also, Betta are tropical fish, and need temps of around 78*, so you will need to get heaters for them. Also, only feed them around 4-6 pellets a day, or they will get bloated. Hope this helps!

They are both gorgeous veiltail males. :)

I especially like the blue guy, he's just smashing. They do both look healthy to me! And the five gallon divided is a good idea. I've got my guy in a five gallon undivided and he loves it, but I've heard five gallon divideds are fine too.

Hey again. Yea, I'll go and get them bigger tanks this week. I don't think i really need a heater, because I live in the tropics so it doesn't get too cold here regardless, and the house is a nice, warm temp. do you think i need one regardless? thanks for all the info!

It depends. How warm is your house, exactly? If it's not up to around 78*, then you will need a heater.
