Post New Betta in Tank

Hey guys! I just got my new betta crimson yesterday. I bought this 1.5 gallon tank with a whisper internal filter (1-3i) from walmart originally for my triops (which only lived for two weeks )
So, i bought this betta and live plants. I have some questions though, since i am a first time betta owner. First of all, when i got him and even now, a little bit of his gills sticking out under him, which you can see in my pictures. Is he okay? Also, right now i am feeding him betta colorbright flakes, 3 flakes in the morning, and 3 flakes in the evening. Is this okay? Please provide some feedback! thanks!

Your betta looks great! I have the same kind. Mine was in a 1.5 gal since Feb and I just upgraded him to a 14 gal. Big change for him, but I think he likes it.

When I had the 1.5 gal I did a 50% water change every 2-3 days. I didn't use a filter for the smaller tank. I feed him pellets...usually about 8 per day. I also had one live plant in there.

Your tank looks great!
