Possible, but not preferable.

I think I'll go through with my plans to downgrade to a 2.5 gallon tank and continue to use bottled (spring) water.

Thanks everyone.

I used Hagen's Cycle product for my communal tank (non-Betta) and it worked great. I put in a bit more than recommended, tested the water the day after and then put in a few fish, kept testing daily for 2 weeks straight, water's been stable since. There might be other products that are as good but I had zero fish loss. Never tried it on a small tank but i assume if you have enough substrate, you should be fine.

Just set up the 2.5 with Spring water and I am getting the fish acclimated. Hope the little guy likes his new home. Also, found out my LFS sells water at $.35/ gallon ($.50 cheaper than publix spring water). I may start switching to it soon.
