1 gallon sounds okay, but with that small of swimming space water can get more acidic faster. Up the ante on water changes and see how that goes. Add a heater for him, too and then let us know how things go. Wishing y'all all the best!!! :)

Yes add a heater as well. But what are you feeding him? And you need to change the water 3 times a week..

the food i am feeding him is called Top Fin Betta Bits. i've never heard of a heater for a normal fish bowl.. .? and the people at the pet store said it was fine to clean it once a week.. it shouldnt be so hectic to take care of this fish. and i posted good pics of him of his fins in an album.. so idk if its fin rot or not..

A 1 gallon can be cleaned once or twice a week.

Stuff can build up fast in a 1 gallon tank... I would clean it at two times a week if it were me. And I know my pet store sold a small heater for small tanks. I think it was by Hydro...it was like $12 or $13...

Rule #1: NEVER listen to the people at the petstore. They just want to make money off of you. :)


Saw the pictures; very handsome fish. Hope everything works out!
