Good Betta Habitat?

Well hi !

Unfortuantely, I had to downgrade my betta's tank to this glass cube and I was wondering if it would be an adequate living space for my male betta ! Would he get bored in his tank? Any advice in other decorations? I also clean it out 100% weekly, is that good enough? Thanks :)

(For the record, the water usually is above what is depicted in the pictures, it's just that the water level lowers due to evaportation.)

Hi, a 100% is good, perhaps try to fit in a 50% midweek. Some bettas are super good jumpers some type of a top will prevent that. Love the " cube " look. Your betta looks happy to me.

the only changes i'd make would be switching out those plastic plants for either live or fabric plants, and put a mesh or some other breathable material (a doily secured with a rubber band perhaps?) on top to prevent jumping.

How big is it? Looks to be 2-3g, if kept properly he should do fine. I'd put in some kind of cave, I found a ceramic "Betta" log at Petsmart that doesn't take up a lot of room. They also have some broad leaf silk plants that I think would be good, it'd give him something to rest on. And like already suggested I'd put some kind of top on it, maybe get a piece of screen cut to just come over the edges where you can bend them down.

Thank you for the feedback!

I will get a screen for the top to avoid jumping.

And well, the plant in the middle is a silk plant..

I saw a leaf hammock that can be attached anywhere on the glass. Willl he actually use it?

My males use leaves all the time to relax on & the tops of their caves & inside their caves & the suction cups of the heater . . .LOL

:) I would do 100% water changes every few days because smaller tanks get greater amount of ammonia XD a bubblenest is from natural instinct! I agree with Shellieca! Some silk plants and a cave will make him even more happy! >.<

Alright c:

I didn't answer a previous question as to how big it was...
Well, I measured it and it seems to be a little more than 1.5g.
