I know, and as long as his water is heated, cleaned with daily 75% water changes and x2 100% water changes weekly, he has a good diet, etc. he should thrive.

PS. You aren't using correct measurements, milligrams is the measurement of mass while gallons is the measurement of water volume, giving us the mass won't help determine the water volume, from the visual picture and the size of the Betta/decorations, it does look slightly smaller than a gallon
are you sure your 10 years old? because i really don't believe it

I have the same gravel gems in one of my tanks... I recommend watching ( Red tail ) because they can get stuck under there... ( I have had this experience many times... ) Just a heads up. :)

Oh and BL1507, Mo is 12. Shocking isn't it? ( I'm 12 too, but still )

Like I said, 758mg = 0.2 gallons. Not 8 gallons. I'm sorry but that is far off. Don't Americans use gallons to buy gas? That should give an idea. Your "tank" isn't even a liter big.

Lol! Thanks!

PS. That tank is not 8 gallons......

Milligrams, a unit of mass, and gallons, a unit of volume, are not actually directly equivalent, however it is common to use the volume and mass of water to "equate" the two.
Using that method, where
1 (U.S.) Gallon of water weighs 128 ounces, and
1 ounce weighs 28.35 grams (approx.) or 28,350 mg
1 Gallon "equals" 128 * 28,350 mg, or 3,628,739 mg

Yes, the measurement 1mL = 1mg is for pure water only, after that you get into decimals and percent composition of the water and such. We use it all the time in our chem conversions.
However it is close enough to be terribly worried for the little guy.
