Honestly it is better than what he came in but it is the same size if the measurements are exact. In a tank of that size I would recommend daily 50% water changes and x2 100% water changes weekly. He looks very happy on there and I hope he lives a long healthy life...... IMO it would be better if you could update his tank to a gallon soon though

WalMart sells 1gallon SET-UPS! (complete with weird pellet gravel, a background, food and conditioner sample and silk plant) for less than 15$! I was so excited! They're perfect for people with multiple set-ups or those who rescue the dying fish in the stores.

WalMart has cheap tanks. Save up your money! (now I'm all excited about WalMart)

I took out some of his gravel so that should give him more space. and he only had two decorations nothing else.

i keep my fish in 1 gallons per each :\ they love it, they make me frequent bubble nest, the only one that is in the 1.5 gallon is Phantom that's it. besides it is better than a cup :) i give my betta's %100 water change weekly, well like %80 or something because i use the water in the cup where the fish is.

That's fine! We're just concerned about the space. Removing the gravel is fine :) I know having no money is a factor, When I had Lakitu we kept him in a .5 gallon on the desk. When I upgraded him to 1g (after a couple months) he was such a happier fish, could tell in his colors and tail and such. I have videos on my youtube account of the container we kept him in-

Anyway, it's just something to keep in mind. Keep up with water changes and upgrade as soon as you can! :)

Yes, so far you are making a great effort to take care for your fish and I love that you are doing that, keeping his home nice cozy and warm for now is okay. Hopefully he will eventually get a larger setup though, Walmart, and craigslist all hav cheap tanks that are a good size
