Lightbulb Question About Tank Size?

I have a large tank its either 50, 75, or 100 gallon. I don't remember? Will it be okay to put ONE betta male fish in the tank? Maybe an alge eater as-well. And live plants.

If you have a tank that large, you can put a LOT more than one betta in there.

Yes, that size tank is fine for one betta. A little on the large side, but he'll be fine. He might be freaked out with all that space though. Personally I have a 10g that's divided for 3 male betta fish.

I'd divide it but i just don't want to bother with the extra work... lol

How much would i have to clean it if i put it in the 75gallon tank OR 50 gal?

I might get 2 bettas and divide the 50 gallon in 2 sections. So they'd both have 25gallons.

I planning to put MANY live plants in. What kinds of live plants would be recommended for these fish? As-well as some decorations?


Still haven't decided. I always wanted saltwater but i'll start with the bettas.

Betta are a great beginner fish, wonderful in their own right, and adaptable enough for a beginner keep easily and to enjoy. I respect your desire to go slow and learn about keeping fish. You might even consider putting a single Betta into a 5g or10g tank to make it easier to learn about aquarium maintenance and fishkeeping.

But with a >50g tank, you eventually may want to get more deeply involved in the hobby. I suggest you ask your question here. You'll get a whole different perspective.

Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
This is the main freshwater section of Tropical Fish Keeping (TFK), the parent site that this Betta forum is a subsection of.

For your plant questions there is a plant section on this (Betta) forum, or you can go here: Beginner Planted Aquarium

Welcome to the forum.

I hope you realize that fish keeping has changed drastically in the last few decades. I had many tanks when my kids were young.

When I started again it was a whole new ballgame.
