That definitely is too small, plus it doesn't have a heater.
It's 75F in the tank, the temp. is fine for now. Yes I'm aware that it's suggested to have between 76-80F which I'll be fixing soon. I've already had this discussion in another thread. I bought this Betta as a gift for my son and I fell in love with it instead. I'll admit that I didn't really think it through when I bought him, but I can still change it around. He is healthy and a happy little fish so I gotta be doing something right. :P I'll post pictures once I get his new tank and hopefully a companion for him if I can find a way to separate a 5gal. tank.

Fair enough.
Is this little shelf the only place you could put a tank? Only a divided 10 gallon would be a lot better IMO.
However, if a 5 gallon is the only size, then that's fine. 2.5 gallons can work for a betta, but personally I would only put one Betta in a 5 gallon tank.

Since my other fish died , I've been planning on moving Root Beer into the empty tank, which would give him a little over a gallon more space. After finally getting the tank sanitized and cleaned up, I got it all put together today!!!! So here's a pic of Root Beer's new home, once I put him in there!

Nice, I like the big skull. How about some live plants?

I would love to get live plants, but I'm not overly comfortable with live plants right now. I think live plants might be why that tank is suddenly available for Root Beer. I had bought two live plants, one for this tank and one for another betta tank, and in less than a week, both bettas were dead. The only thing that had changed in their tanks were the plants. So...silk plants for now.

This tank is going to sit where i had Ōji's tank originally. I really liked the look of a tank there but my idiot cats put a stop to that.

I bought this 5 gallon to have as a planted tank with no fish. I know this is the post your betta home thread but i didn't want to start a new thread just to post this pic.

I have to keep telling myself that NO FISH will be in this tank, i don't want a repeat of cat stupidity from my littlest kitty and if it's just plants she'll leave it alone. (i did see the cutest female at petsmart that i had to drag myself away from) So. i know it's bare but i've got 1 amazon sword and have a java fern coming that i ordered online. Plus i have 5 small marimo balls coming, 1 for Ōji's tank, 1 for a half gallon bowl that i plan to give to my mam and the other 3 can go in here for now.

(sorry about the pic if it turns out to be huge)
I do plan on adding some stones and a few more plants when i can find decent ones. i have a few bulbs in there but honestly i don't know if they'll grow or not.

Video of the 5.5 gallon divided.
