I'm going to order a new tank 'castle' :3 for my betta, Fred.
I'm not sure which size to pick...I'm concerned that the 5 gallon might be too big? I want to put lots of live plants in it and fill it with some hand built porcelain caves (no sharp edges! made by me :D). I'm probably going to get the 5 gallon because it's cheaper but suggestions? It's for one male betta, Fred.
Are larger tanks more of a hassle to clean and start cycling? Or are they easier because they don't build up as much gunk? I am leaving for a week in December and Fred will need to stay in that tank(grandma can't do anything except feed him), so I'm assuming the 5 gallon will be better.
But is there a such thing as too big of a tank?
