Would everyone who's attacking the poor kid just chill. He asked about the protein building up. Not about how to care for bettas. There's plenty of resources. For him to check out if he wants. I agree the conditions are not ideal and a heater couldn't hurt however and I wouldn't recommend this set up for two bettas but yelling at him isn't gonna do anything, what run gonna march down to his place and fix his set up? Or maybe he should return his fish to the pet store so they can live happily in a cup smaller then a soda can. How about he flushes a Betta live? Would that make people feel better? Seriously.

With proper water changes and maintenance it is possible to keep healthy fish in this set up. Perhaps he could fiend a friend interested in keeping a Betta and they could take care of it.

(Don't care what people say about this post btw)

Sorry..! I had to go to the dentist to get my cleaning.. And they sprayed flouride all over my mouth. It was just a rough day for me, my apologies.

2.5 G is fine for a betta, I just wouldn't put it in anything smaller..

Cut the kid some slack. He's obvious trying, working with what he's got and trying to learn a thing or two. If he wasn't trying then the kid would not be here asking for all your "expert" advice. Tell him what he needs to know. I thought Bettafish.com was all about the "support."

Rusty is swimming very comfortable in his 2.5 gallon Aqueon tank. He just has to remember to provide his betta fish with fresh weekly water change and all will be well with him and his fish. Just remember community most of us are tight with money issues too.

Any chance you could upgrade to a 2.5 gallon tank each? That would be a big difference for them.

For the record, I have 2 bettas living each in a 1 gallon tank of their own. Glass houses, right?

They are happy and healthy but I have to do 100% weekly WCs which is getting old. Brad is going into a 10 gallon next week with 5 guppies, and Finty will be getting something bigger soon. At least 2.5 gallons all to himself with a snail or something.
