@Jupiter LOL! He is so small and has these big cute eyes. I'm in love. :) Yeah he has a 5 gal waiting for him when he gets bigger. ;)

@Karebear13 That heater is an Aqueon 50w adjustable heater. Now I do know that this heater is not specifically made for a 1 gal tank. It keeps a constant 79 to 80 degrees in his tank and Ginger is perfectly fine with it. Now with saying that my other betta *Rosie* Has the same 1 gal tank but she does not handle the output of heat from that same heater. It depends on your betta. I would get with a 25w adjustable but keep an eye on it. Make sure your betta can handle it. I prefer the adjustable heaters because the mini heaters would be hard for me to keep at a constant temp and I always had to unplug it. With the adjustable one I dont have to do that. :)

I think as long as your betta has room, places to hide, a nice warm tank, and frequent water changes; a betta can be happy in a nice sized bowl. As for people keeping them as decorations, and placing them in cups that they think is apporiate for them; shame on them. :U

As for my own opinion; I love to put my bettas in big, warm, spacious places. It allows them to swim around and be fish c: Spoiling them is my life <3

I agree - those wanting a fish for decoration aren't right :( I have a "decorational bowl" that holds maybe 2 cups of water. I used to use it for water changes then eventually as a candle holder xD
