What a lovely boy! What size is the bowl? do you know? Bettas do best in tanks over a gallon. They also do best in a heated tank, the best temp range is between 76 - 82F. When bettas are in water that is too cool, they tend to get lethargic and become more susceptible to disease. Good luck with your new boy and keep us updated on him!!

Thank you for the support!

You should probably get him a 5 gallon or a 2.5 at least. I've had bad experiences with heating pads.... ugh... I'd get him a heater, not a heating pad :)
Good luck, he is very pretty!

lol Thank you for answering! Ah 2.5....I wish but I have to see how much room I have after I move into my dorm ~w~ then I will see what I can do. And not sure about heating pad/heater...I need it to be affordable.

Heaters are pretty cheap if you go to the right store. And 2.5 gallons aren't much bigger than 1 gallons, btw. I had the same issue about space but I had 4 boys (two of them passed away) who all have 2.5 gallons.

You could get a critter keeper. They aren't too expensive.

Your betta is very pretty! If you get him a bigger tank, stop by Walmart if you have one. They sell pre-set Tetra heaters for about $11. Pretty cheap, and it works fairly well.
