He definitely isn't living in a habitat, I was reccomened for a Betta. I have read quite a bit online and do agree very small homes are decorations. Unfortuneatly, my mom was buying. I talked her out of all the half gallon homes. The bigger ones, our stores had, were either expensive, or very cheaply made, and looked like they would fall apart. The stock in the 5 stores I went to were poor. I chose a Betta that swam VERY slow, and hid. It came out a couple times, between the 3 visits at different times of the day. I thought he was ill.
But, he is now, in yes only a 1 gallon fish bowl, with his one decoration thingy, to hide in, and rocks on the bottom. But, after an hour of being here with me, he mostly just stares at me, goes and does some facy swimming(quickly, and slowly) does a lap or two. Then stares at me. Oh, seems fascinated by the computer. I thought his tail was broken or something, I could barely see it in store. But now it is spread out and he just looks like a happy fish. When I get my own money, I plan on getting a 5 gallon of sorts. Or find one free on adds online.
I will do the saran wrap thing. Sounds great! :) I can put the water higher too since he can't jump through that.
