Post Have to move betta into 4.5L tank due to space issues...

So yeah
Is it bad for my betta if I keep it in there for about 2-3 months?
Or am I considered a bad betta keeper?

thats a lot smaller than the ideal, but we all have space issues at some point in our lives so its understandable, just make sure to up the water changes to about 25% 2-3 times per week and get him in a bigger tank as soon as you have space :)

JW what size tank was he in before? i honesty believe that the difference in the two sizes will make a much bigger difference than the tank itself. for example, a betta that has known nothing than the little cup of water that it sits in at the petstore would feel like hes in heaven when put into a 1 gallon tank. but a betta that lived a year in a 20 gallon tank that was put into a 5 gallon tank could easily become depressed

He was living in a 20L tank for only a couple of days but now I have to move him back to his old 4.5L tank. It's the same model as this:
