Is this 1 gallon tank good enough for my new betta?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

I just bought a Betta fish from a supermarket and its pretty fun to have a fish haha. I was wondering if this tank is good enough for my new friend..just ordered it. THanks!

Off Topic: My betta is kind of inactive right now...is it because i moved it from a tiny container to a goldfish bowl? (Temporarily home till my tank comes) Thanks again

Edit: And its not eatting the betta pebbles ;(

Not the best permanent home, but it will work as long as you do at least 3 water changes a week.

As Doggyhog said, not the best permanent home. Move your betta into a 2.5 or 5 gallon when you have time.

I wouldn't put a filter in a one gallon- they are too small and the current pushes the bettas around a bit. You still have to do water changes. Getting a bigger tank, you won't have to do as many and can have a filter.

I wouldn't put a filter in a 1g either. Doesn't do any good.

Yes, you still need to do water changes, and consider the above recommendation a MINIMUM! The reason that some of the posters above recommend a 2.5 gallon aquarium is because a 1-gallon is not very forgiving. Personally, I prefer the smaller "nanos", but it's a lot of work and you have to stay on top of your water quality. I change 50% of the water every day in all my nanoquariums.

A sponge filter would do A LOT of good! Bite your tongue!
