You would have to do a water change a day. BTW I find my bettas become so much more happy in a bigger tank than in smaller ones. You can get big storage containers for cheap if you don't mind the look of them. They make very good betta homes.

I would think the troll would be the unqualified person refuting those who know better! Read "Aquarium Care of Bettas," by David E. Boruchowitz (editor-in-chief of Tropical Fish Keeping magazine), and then explain to me how it is that you've determined you know better than he does!

Mister Sparkle,

I might actually respect your opinion if you weren't so rude about it.

My thoughts exactly. If he has any experience or advice that could be potentially helpful to anyone, it quickly gets lost in his, "I am so much better and I know so much more than you!" attitude.

Just because one editor in chief wrote a book doesn't mean it's the gospel.


I think the tanks are small as well and your fish would probably have a complete (Happy) Personality change if you put them in a bigger tank. =) Cute fishies btw.

You can get a small (2 gallon ish) Critter Keeper for around 7 bucks. Even that split would be better than the tank you have now, and they would really do much better. Not to mention it'll make tank cleaning easier on you, since you'll be able to do it less.
Like everyone said, bigger is usually better. It's better for the bettas, and it's easier for the owner.
And yeah, your bluish red "female" looks suspiciously like a young male betta. Fins are very, very long for a female.
