I dont know what size tank you HAD but even 3/4ths filled 10 gallon tank is awesome for a betta :) he will certainly enjoy the extra room!

Why not fill up the tank? Is there no top or something? Bettas don't usually like to be exposed to open air temperatures in our homes because we don't live in the tropics. Since they do breathe air some of the time and live near the surface, they notice the cold dry air we have in our homes.

You probably don't heat your house the way we do further north so its probably not that dry from winter heating either.

You can get a glass top. They're pretty cheap...about $8 or $9 for a 10 gallon.
