Smaller than you can get if you have the option between two tanks get the bigger one.

Okay as long as you do right water changes I am sure your Betta is okay.

Chocolate,but what if someone is asking between a 1 gallon and a 10 gallon for one heavy finned betta? Again, as OFL said, it depends on the fish. You can't tell someone to get a bigger tank when you don't exactly know how much a person can handle or the fish.

I'd just simply tell someone to get what they and their fish (or alltank residents) can handle. And that should be fine.

but then all of that is more money, which some people might not what to buy.

And I have a Super Delta who is very sick right now and in a 1.75 gallon (was in a divided 5 gallon) and a Halfmoon in a 3 gallon.

So yes, both are long finned and did not do well in a tank with a filter, hence why they are in small tanks.

No offense but not doing well with filters and not doing well with large tanks seem different. I said between two options.

The larger the tank the more you need a filter though
