I know seriously!! I thought it was at least a 10gal, but my dad ("all knowing" man that he claims to be) swore it was a 5,

I should've known better, my parents got the short stick when it comes to animals lol

But yeah, so now its at LEAST a 10 gal, maybe 15? I'll say its a 15 gal to be safe.

WHAT CAN I ADD???

Depends on your water parameters.

I would test your pH first and then research on how hard your water is. You can get pH testing kits in pet stores, and to find out how hard your water is just Google it. Get back to us and we'll determine what you can house with your Betta. :)

I'd also suggest adding a heap more cover. :) Bettas prefer lots of places to hide and explore, and it looks a little empty. :)

Now based from this pic, unless the poor guy is being quarantined for transfer, you seem to have a very tiny bowl with a betta in it. he does look like he has had a fresh water change recently though so that makes me a bit happy. But you could create a divider and put one boy on each side. It does look like a ten gallon which is fine to split two or even three way.

yeah he's being quarantined, I just got him and a female and he's got some fin issues. One's he's better I'll split the tank probably. I change his water a couple times a day (50-75% change) to help him heal and keep it warm til I put him in a tank with a heater.

My question is more on the big tank Kevin is in. Please and thank you.

Before adding more fish you need much more cover, via plants, driftwood or decorations with hidey holes. Fish need to get away from each other and having no cover won't allow it. So before more fish save up for more decorations

You also need to know your water chemistry and how many gallons it actually is. :) Guess-work isn't exact enough.

yes measure it, its HUGE.

and the lack of cover is probably why your shrimp got eaten. more hiding space will help if you wanted more shrimp! ^-^
