Our point is that everyone has an opinion and they should respectfully express themselves.

I have awful social skills but I don't run around telling people I'm a genius and that they're killing their bettas if not in 5 gallon tanks.
Everyone I know says I am a genius scoliosis am in constant pain and have a limp. Okay I am going to try and accept his opinion.

Tank size is one person's opinion and just becuase we don't all give our bettas 2.5+s doesn't meen we don't love them. There's no need to get all hissy becuase we spoil our bettas in a 1g. We still love them to death.

I personally thing a 1 gallon is fine for LONG FINNED MALES. I would say the smallest for a plakat is 5 gallons. But the smallest tank I have (that is a permanent home) is 3 gallons that gets 2 50% changes per week.

I know my VT is having a hard time upgrading from a 3 gallon to a 5.5. He's resorted to chewing his tail, and is actually pretty happy when I have him in the 1 gallon for treatment purposes.

Now, 1 gallons are more high maintenance, but that can be cured by premixing 1 gallon of water everytime you change the water.

ChocolateBetta, I've noticed that you like to start controversy. And I highly recommend you quit before you get banned...again. Everyone has their own opinions and is entitled to their own opinions. Just because you keep all your fish in 5+ gallons, doesn't mean that's the way it has to be. Every betta is different, they are just like human beings.

Chocolatebetta, I'm sorry but I don't think anyone is a genius unless they are excellent in not only academic areas, but are also "emotionally intelligent". Emotional intelligence has to do with being able to understand people and respond to them well. Clearly you are not a genius. Neither are the rest of us, but we are smart enough emotionally not to run around making weird bragging statements, and thinking it will get us anywhere but hated. So there is that.

Also, scoliosis . . how the $#@% does that have anything to do with communication? I have mild scoliosis, lordosis, and many other things. That has nothing to do with communication or being an Ahole. Sorry. It also has nothing to do with antagonizing others .. it has nothing to do with writing only run-on sentences, and it has nothing to do with kind of annoying a lot of people you talk to. That is mostly personality and you may want to work on that or go to a good therapist.

You also may want to look at an Anatomy book for the definitions of scoliosis. Seems every time you are insulting to people, you have a new disease to blame it on. I have a name for that disease but I already got in trouble for cursing here so I won't name it.

I agree with Teeney. Choclate, you said you would try to accept what other's said and that's good so let's not bring up IQ anymore.

Shaina, if you don't like what you see, don't read the thread or use our ignore function. Please.

Is there a betta forum for adults somewhere? If so please PM me, this is ridiculous.

edit: honestly, someone can insult people but the rebuttals are removed. Is this forum for children only? It should be advertised that way then. Maybe we can discuss serious topics on Ultimate Bettas or somewhere else.

This is my tiniest tank. I know people say you can't cycle a 2.5 . . but I test the chemicals and I haven't had an ammonia reading in over a month. I use a filter with beneficial bacteria supplement, established tank filter media, and some live plants.

I mean, Nimbus is pretty little. I think he is perfectly happy until he grows more. What do you guys think? (My other bettas live in : 6.6 , 5 or a diveded 3-way 10 gallon but that 10 gallon will not be divided 3 ways forever. I will give them more room when I move.)
Honestly, he should be fine in that tank even full grown :)
