If water conditions are kept up, I find nothing wrong with 1 gallon tanks. In fact, my first rescue was in a 1 gallon tank and he healed up quite well.

I wasn't sure if he was gonna live so i just got the $10 hawkeye 1 gallon tank. I dislike it because it is hard to get the betta out of it when its time for a water change.



His fins started growing back and he colored up which I doubt he would of done if he was not kept in clean water. I did not, however have a heater for him at the time and I ended up ditching the undergravel filter.

He he is a few weeks later - the water is green because of Betta Revive.


Although, I will admit, he started healing A LOT faster when I put him into the 5 gallon.

I love square tanks because they have better gas exchange. Love the tank.

thanks, aww well the tank's decor is all thanks to a dollar store lol well here they are better known as bazaars, and yes it is, all my care has been rewarded with a healthy betta and that is really satisfiying.

Have you posted a pic of your tank? Would love to see yours!

For a while during my rescues I used 2 dollar washbins, approximately 2-3 gallons, with syran-wrap overtop. Humid, warm, safe :) and plus since they were white it made it easy to clean xD

I have learned all about people and how we work :p saying "you HAVE to" triggers rebellion. Scolding "you SHOULDN'T" causes disrespect. Hinting (which can be a part of bragging) causes people to stop listening. Which is why I started paying more attention to people in such cases... Which is why I don't push a "5 gallon minimum" rule on anyone. I know how it feels to have people latch onto every word I say, so they could criticize, and bring me down. I don't want anyone on this forum, or in person ever feel like that.

Sometimes people just forget the little things, and follow the shepherd as blind sheep.

For me the only other reason I use a 10 gallon I am only allowed two tanks, no one here sells divider supplies or divider for a 10, if I am only allowed two tanks why not get a bigger. I know many members here are not in that situation. Sena thanks just learned a new social skill.

No problem :) and I agree. If I could have 10 tanks, I would... Probably smaller. If I were allowed 2 tanks, I'd have bigger ;)

On a different topic; I also figured, the room heater has kept the chilly basement bedroom toasty as my fish's water remains at 82 degrees! :o and my baby betta, may end up being a male. Fins are getting longer...
