Just to give you my view since I'm in a dorm room and can't have a tank, my first input is you're feeding him too much. I have my bettas in a smaller space like you because, also like you, that's what I can afford and am allowed to have in a dorm. You'll have to clean the tanks more often, but you'll get the hang of it. Only feed them maybe twice a day and not very much. I usually feed mine in the morning when I leave for class and around dinner time.

Now before people go yelling at me for saying it's ok to have a small tank, I'm in the same boat as 3ltonWorri3s. I cannot afford a bigger tank right now nor do I have the space, but with proper care your betta will be ok until you get him a better home. My 2 bettas are very active and healthy.

I have smaller tanks and my bettas do fine as long as I keep up with my water changes.

Finally, someone who understands the circumstances I'm under! You guys are great!

Yes, I've started feeding him in the morning and at night. :) I didn't know how much to feed him before so I listened to the guy at the store. Oh well, good thing I hooked up with this site!

Something I found interesting, was that the 10 gallon tanks are almost the exact same price as the 5Gs and even some of the fancy-yet-way-too-small 1G cubes they sell. So when you do have the means and space to get a larger tank, you might want to go all out and pay cottage price for a mansion (at least that's how your fish buddy will view it!) :P

I know this sounds stupid, but I have no clue how to upload a pic of him on here. I tried and failed.

ok, go to "go advanced" under the text box next to the post button. Click the little arrow next to the paper clip. select "manage attachments" and upload photos from the little window. When you have all the pics uploaded, click the arrow again and click "insert all" or the photo name you want to insert.

Thanks lilyrazen, but it didn't work. So I put him as my avatar. Not a really good pic and it doesn't do him justice, but oh well. :)

Umm, dude, chill. He was given to me as a present. That's why I joined this place. I stopped feeding him that much already. He gets fed twice a day now. In morning and at night. I'm trying to get him a bigger tank, but for right now I'm doing 100% water changes everyday. He is acting a lot better since I first posted this thread.

Thanks for your input, but I think I know what to do now. :)

Really quick question, people:
I heard that you should fast your fish once a week. Is that true?
