RIGHT! I don't call everyone a Puddle Fish just the guys -or girls- who don't like anything larger then acouple gallons to live in. I don't use the term for every Betta and I always correct those who say Bettas live in puddles. ;) i'm one of the good guys (or girls in this case), I love my boys and make sure they all have what they need to be happy.
I have 7 tanks. My smallest is a 2.5 gallon which holds a stunted "Puddle Fish" HM, Eery. (he's a very small bloke)
I have three 3 gallons (one of them I think is more of a 4 gallon, but i'm not totally sure).
And I also have three 5 gallons.
Everyone has silk plants and some kind of decoration (or two), like a hut/house, cave thing, arch/bridge exc.
I go by body size & what each fish prefers for their tank size and how much decor/foliage they like. If I get more room I would like to upgrade my youngest who's in a 3gal to a 5, i've had him since he was a tiny little guy (5mos old there abouts) and he's always had a lot of swimming room so he I think he'll love a 5.
