He is very pretty, although he would like it better if he had a tank a little bigger. I would suggest at LEAST a 2 gallon tank with real plants and hiding places for him to explore. Also bettas do tend to get glum and bored with their natural set up, so if you can every once in a while change around his decorations so he doesnt get bored. Good luck with your beautiful betta:)

Im sure you'll enjoy this hobby very much!

Yeah, I love my live plants. I was surprised at how cheap they were too. For hiding places a cup works well but beware of terra-cotta pots unless you plug up the little hole in the bottom so they won't get stuck. I found that one out the hard way...

To be brutally honest, your fish isn't going to last long in a deathtrap like that.

Very pretty boy!

But yeah, that tank's way too small... Just do daily 100% water-changes until you can get a bigger tank, and he'll be fine.

Professor. I don't know why.

And I second all motions for a larger environment. They have some really good deals on 10G at some PetSmarts right now- $20 for tank, hood and filter. Not to encourage product placement, but it's cheaper than a 2.5.

if you can't afford the proper supplies for your pet, then don't get a pet! It's as simple as that.

But what if the person thinks that is the proper size tank for a Betta and then finds out they need a bigger tank after already getting the Betta and stuff but does not have the money to replace the smaller one for a bigger one? I think that is what happened.

Hey! Congragulations on your lovely fish, he is beautiful. As long as you continue to do 50-100% water changes every day or every other day, he will be fine! And I know alot of people don't get the right information at pet stores about bettas. Your tank is fine temporarily, and don't feel bad about the ignorance of other people. I have seen pet stores keep bettas in literally 1 inch of water. Your little guy will just be happy outta that cup. And those rocks are very interesting! I am sure he will last until you get a new tank. :D Very pretty veiltail.
