The poll numbers are surprising to me, only a few think 5 gallons is optimal!

For me, 2.5 is the smallest I will ever keep a betta in, but I try to get a 5 gal as soon as I can. My boy right now has a semi-planted, heated, filtered 5 gal all to himself, and he absolutely loves it :]

I personally am a 2.5 gal or more kind of person, although I dont believe in anything less than a gallon as a permanent home, because I dont think it provides adequate room.
But everyone is entitled to their opinion and I fully respect that.

I like 3 gallon size, I think 2.5 is a tad too small, but works for some.

Aww im sorry! i was going to put a more broad selection on the poll but I figured it'd be way too long, so I put the most popular choices ;)

XD 3gallon is rather rare :P

maybe there should have been anither option. Teeney, maybe you can record some of this coversation and we can feature them with the poll.

like ShadyBird's "For me, 2.5 is the smallest I will ever keep a betta in, but I try to get a 5 gal as soon as I can. My boy right now has a semi-planted, heated, filtered 5 gal all to himself, and he absolutely loves it :]"

I voted for more than 5g XD Idk i like seeing 1 betta roam around in 10 gallons :P. Though that is my preference I see happy bettas in much smaller tanks :).
