You could get a 2.5 gallon critter keeper. I have 2 2.5 gallon critter keepers and I have had no problems with them.

Okay, I think I might do that.
As much as I'd love to get a 5 gal. for him I can't right now. I think I'm going to work my way up.

I'm wondering though, he likes to investigate things. I drew some stuff on his tank and he got up to look at that, and when I put a mirror by his tank he swims back and forth looking at himself. Is that normal behavior? After he looks at these things, though, he goes back to his corner.

Yes, it's normal. Bettas are very curious and like looking at their surroundings.

Is the going back to his corner due to the tank size then?

He could still be getting used to his new home since you haven't had him very long. Does he stay there for long periods at a time?

No, like, right now I have him on my desk with me and he keeps getting up for air and to look at me so... He's swimming around a little bit too. Actually I think he's a little more active then when I first posted. I have my lamp light on him aswell. That's fine, right?

Yes, having the lamp on is fine. Just don't leave it on all day and all night. lol It sounds to me like he's doing fine.
