Breeders clean the tank one or two times a day and only jar males and they only live in the jars a few months plus the breeders maintain the right temp give good food and Indian almond leaves.

I reccomend 3 weekly water changes for 1 gal tanks- 1 100% and 2 50%.

That is good too. P.S. under aquariums how did you set up your tank profile?

I know that, I was just wondering if .3 gallons was like 32 ounces or something...
I guess 2 50%s and 1 100% change is adequate, but that's certainly a lot of work. Even my 3.5 gallon is small but it only gets 2 50%s per week. I'm switching to 1 75% change per week next month.

I personally wouldn't go lower than a 3 gallon with my bettas for permanent housing. They just don't do well, the water gets icky super fast, and the tank can't really cycle.

For juvenile males, I am trying to find mason jars that are at least 16 oz/1 pint.

I see but typically 1 gal tanks are unfiltered and uncycled.
It doesn't take long to clean the tank so it's not much work IMO

1/4 gallon = 32 fl oz

I guess. They're really small so carrying them wont be a problem! Thanks for the metric conversion. :)

Big tanks are easier to clean than smaller and anything under 30 gallons is small tank.

For a while, I had to keep my poor boy in the walmart cup he came in due to an illness he had. I changed the water 50% twice a day and the ammonia levels didn't rise above 0. I agree with Lebron. 1 gallon can be okay if it is properly maintained.

Choco-
I know. :) My tank is considered a "Nano". Why did I have a quotation mark when it's true? :D I'm proud it's nano. But I'll be even more happy once I upgrade. Next year...
