Talking New Betta Fish tank!

Hello guys. Well first of all I am new to bettafish.com. It's nice to meet you all, I'm William. Anyway I've been wanting to get a new fish for a while, and my mom is probably only allowing a Betta Fish since I won't have to be getting them a 20 gallon fish tank or anything too large. I currently have 5 zebra danios in my 5.5 gallon fish tank, and was planning on moving them to a larger tank, and moving the betta fish to the 5.5, but like I said I'm not allowed to get a bigger tank. Okay so I'm probably not allowed to get a second 5.5 gallon fish tank since it's big apparently, so any ideas what kind of tanks I should get? I was thinking of getting this small 1.5 gallon cube but is it not good enough?

Thanks guys

I hear you really supposed to have at least a 2 gallon. You can get the 2.5 gallons at Walmart though. I have one and love it!

I looks like it would be a nice choice! Try for as big as can though. For 1.5 gallons a 50% change once or twice a week is very important.

I've heard all different sizes work. My cousin kept her betta in a small vase with a live plant and it lived for 3 years so size discrepancy really doesn't phase me, so a 1.5 should be fine.

Just my opinion...
