Unhappy baby Betta in A 29 Gallon Tank

Would A 29 Gallon Tank OverWhelm A Juvenile Betta From Petco . .? Although i Might Add 3/4 Cory Catfish . . Would This Be Okay .?

If it was extremely planted it would be fine, but I would suggest something so big. besides you can't see it and track it as well and it would be harder to feed.

I find that 5-10 gallons works great for them, especially when planted so that they can hide when they want and not feel like they're out in open waters. It's not so much the tank size but how much open water there is. A Betta could be nervous in a very bare 10 gallon just as much as they'd be nervous in a 29+ that's not planted. So the more plants and decor, the better.

A 29 would be great for a betta, they would absolutely love it. That being said, like lilnaugrim mentioned, it has to be decorated well. They may panic in bare spaces.
