My first Betta/Introduction

Hey everyone my name is Ryan and i just got my first fish ever a Betta as a gift from my girlfriend.
Heres some pics taken from my mobile.



I plan on getting a bigger tank tomorrow either a 2.5 gallon or a 3 gallon tank with a heater and im still deciding on whether to get a filter as well.
Any helpful advice, information,critiques or comments are most welcome .

He's beautiful. Have you picked out a name yet?

A 2.5 or 3 gallon is good if you're only keeping the betta in there. I have filters in all of mine so that the tank will cycle and I don't have to replace the water constantly.

Good luck with him and welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum and the betta obsession!haha He's very pretty. I don't have filters in any of my 2.5G tanks. If you don't have a filter, you have to clean the water out more often than if you have a filter. So if you don't have the time to put into doing water changes once a week 100%, than you should get a filter. Watch out, bettas are like potato chips, you can never have just one! :P

if you are going to put a filter you have to know that bettas don't like big water currents so put it in a low power...

Welcome to th forum! He's very pretty. A filter isn't 100% necessary, but it will really help with your cleanings. Be sure to get one with an adjustable flow as Andreig mentioned.

Welcome to the forum! If you can't find an adjustable filter, don't worry too much, because you can usually make a water baffle to slow the current down.

Welcome to the hobby.
