Good hospital tank setup?

Each jar is 1500 ml with a plastic betta-safe plant or other decoration to hide behind. The bettas will all be in the dark where it is quiet to minimize stress. Each jar will have an aq salt to water ratio of 2.5:1500 to start with and if the betta does not get better or if illness needs more than that then i will change it, but that is the standard. Wondering if this is good? Also, I was wondering if bettas know like the smell of thier jar or what because I think that moving to an identical jar with identical plant is less stressful that waiting in a cup during 100% water changes, and then I can put the betta in a sterile jar every time. There will be four open jars for bettas plus more being washed. All jars are identical.

Oh, and for right now, the jars are not heated because I can't afford to heat the right now, so they will be at room temperature is this okay?

OK XD another idea is to get shoe box tubs they are like .97¢ each offer large swimming area and are shallow ( but not to shallow) they are like 1.5 gallons

Sounds like a good hospital setup. As long as it is easy to clean daily, since most betta illnesses require daily 100% changes. Room temp should be okay as long as room temp is in the upper 70's. But for some cases such as ich or velvet, you will want to be able to heat it because the best way to treat those illnesses is with high heat.

Only really a necessity if you are tackling an external parasite, as long as your room temp is adequate. :)
