Hey Guys! :D
I've had bettas in the past, and I've always heard that the bigger the tank, the better the betta. Following this rule, I got my two bettas (Apollo and Ryan) each a 5 gallon tank with heaters, filters, pH tests, the whole 9 yards. They died in less than a year.
However, my autistic little brother wanted to be just like his big sister, so we let him have a betta as well (named Mac). He keeps that fish in a 1/2 gallon tank with no filters, no heaters, doesn't check pH level, none of that. All he does it feed him twice a day and cleans his tank once a week. That betta is now 4 years old!!
Now I'm thinking of getting another betta, but should I still go through what I did in the past? Or, should I just keep it simple like my brother??
