Hes pretty, you didn't have a heater? and that picture does make him look cramped up.
I had a thermometer sticker on the other side, when it dropped down too low I put a small heater in. I live in Texas and the weather keeps things rather toasty, his water hardly ever dropped below 78 except in the winter, then I left the heater in all the time.
I had him in a bigger tank (2.5g) and I don't think he liked it as much, maybe it was because he was used to his 1g tall bowl? Once I put live plants in there he became very active.
He did very well for about two years and then one of my young relatives knocked his bowl over, it was a pretty high fall (shoulder height) and needless to say he didn't survive :[
Beautiful tank leroythebetta! How many gallons is that?
Thanks! Hmm, gallons..... well, I can tell you it's 38 litres, so that would make it about 10 gallons, roughly (thinking there's about 3.8 or so litres per gallon).
First time having fish, first fish tank.... and I think Leroy is doing ok in it. He likes hiding in the pot when the filter is on. But, just learning bacteria in the filter can die, creating ammonia, when it's off, so I think I'll be leaving it on.
