Having betta in Tetra 1 gallon halfmooon tank

Can I leave Leo in the tank I got for him if I get a heater? Or is it too inhumane? This is a picture of it

Everyone has their own opinions when it comes to tank size, but obviously the bigger the better. I would personally get him something bigger but that is fine until then. Here's a decent size bowl for a fair price;

You could get a small filter as well as a heater for that and it would be so much better for him. I just bought a 10 gallon complete tank setup at walmart for $30 if that is an option for you. You could even divide it and get another one :)

That is a very hot topic in this forum and I am sure you will get lots of posts regarding this. People will say it's inhumane and say a betta should at the very least be in a 2.5 gallon tank or bigger. You will need a heater. I would like to offer some advice if I may:

I would use plant that's half the size of the one you have now and use half the gravel. This will give him more room in his tank to swim around.

Best wishes.

I'd keep an eye on that bowl, I've seen them as low as $7. I know Walmart also carries it, but it costs $23 :/

Most of the larger pet stores always have larger tanks on sale. Just keep looking online and comparing prices. You will find a larger tank at a great price that's just right for your budget.
