That size tank alone is what is recommended for a single betta. So definitely get a larger one as soon as you can :) Grr to pet store employees..
Good luck to you, you have a very handsome boy :)
i will upgrade as soon as i can :)
i was changing the water twice a week but only around the 25-30% mark so i will up that as you suggest. i dont plan on putting any more fish into this tank so im hopin he will be okay until i can afford a new setup. he seems happy enough hes very active all day and his fins are not clamped to his body so he is obviously relaxed. compared to what he was in at the pet store this tank is like the playboy mansion, minus the ladies of course lol
and thanks too, ill obviously keep this place and yourself updated with everything when i get around to it
