I personally like to put them in smaller tanks when I first get them so I can watch their behavior & whether or not they'll eat.

I don't like to use substrate either during the first 2 weeks so I can see if they're "chipmunking".
My tanks are all a steady 80 degrees with no heaters. I switched to the stone substrate so it's easier to see any debris on the bottom, whether food or poop.

I think they were inquiring that a betta can easily get his head stuck in that type of substrate, and not be able to come up for air or get severe injuries.

Thanks for the heads up! I never thought of that!
