Smile First Betta, and his new home

Hello everyone, so my tank finally finished cycling last week. Went and picked up my new and first betta. He's a male Crown Tail named "Tails" by my GF.

He seems to be happy in is home, it's 2.5 gallon with some plants and rocks. Going to pick up a terracotta pot for him tonight. A filter and heater are on the way. Heater wont be needed for a few months, even at night his tank stays at 80.

For now till his filter arrives, I'm doing 50% water changes daily to keep it clean. He's also come to recognize me already and stays on which ever side of the tank I'm on. Here he is:

It's hard to tell, but his fins go from a shiny blue, to the red you see. As you can tell, he likes being in the camera.

I have one question tho, I plan on doing DIY co2, since bettas are labyrinth fish, are they affected by CO2 poisoning? Thanks

And thanks for lookin!

Thanks guys! I'm really excited to have him. He usually relaxes amid the wisteria, or between the rocks.

Think I should keep the rocks, or get the terracotta pot for him?

I bet he would love a little hiding spot too. The set up is nice, and he's very pretty!
