My new Bettas home.

Hello everyone. I have not posted here in quite a while. I recently got a new betta because I got a coupon from petco to get 25% off any fish. So I got a lovely dragon scale delta betta. I just fixed up his new home yesterday. It is a 1 gallon bowl with a Anubias plant on a rock and a artificial branch with java fern attached to it and also has large stones at the bottom. Aquarius is in love! He is so happy swimming around and exploring. I attached a picture of his new home.

A 1g is OK as long as you change water every other day or so. A tank of 2.5g and up will be easier for you to heat and maintain. It's better for your fish, especially if you cycle it.

Large rocks and marbles allow food and waste to get down in there where it's hard to get out. Sand or gravel (or nothing) is easier to clean.

Cycling isn't necessary, but it would be nice, and it would be hard to cycle a 2.5 gal since it's so small, but I do agree with getting a slightly bigger tank, especially one that's not round, since it bends the light too much and it's not normal to see things like that. And yes, definitely get a heater!!!! Bettas are tropical fish, they like to be at a temperature of around 78-82 degrees, a small bowl is kind of hard to heat, but other than that, your tank looks really nice, lots of hiding places.

Very nice bowl -- could use it for shrimps.

Suggest you move your betta to a tank. And yes, you should get a heater before the winter; it gets cold, even in NC. And yes, do get a filter.

Very pretty bowl! A 1 gallon is perfectly acceptable as long as his water is changed on time. Which, I assume, you know :) I do suggest a heater of some sort, though.

As a matter of opinion, gorgeous set up and possibly get a heater. :D
