Pink!

Recently, all four of my bettas passed on as a result of my tank water not being good. I don't think I did the whole procedure well. :(

So I decided to get out my old 2.5 gallon while I'm trying to fix up my big fifteen gallon. Everything I've had in this tank has lived healthily so I figure I could at least have one betta that will stay with me in it.

I went to Petco and bought some pretty gravel decor to go with my new betta I picked out. He's a white double-tail with pink/mauve accents. I've only ever owned veil tails and crowntails so it was exciting to finally go to Petco to get something new. He's very pretty and very small. He seems like a very curious little fellow as well.

He doesn't have a heater as I don't have one small enough for his tank. I've never used them before in small tanks but I want to get him one. Can someone please recommended a heater for a small tank with a decent price tag?

I don't have a name for him. I'd call him Rouge because his colors remind me of makeup but he's a boy. But hey, I gave one of my old male betta's a girl name so why not?

Here are pics of him and his new home.

He's pretty! I hope you check your other post for the heater recommendation.

Oh, and I like he matches the decor!

Very pretty boy! I know I've made this very clear on the forums, but I love cellophane doubletails ♥

Oh, and wow, he's a little guy, too... I have that same tank, and my bettas look quite big in it.

In terms of heaters... Elite and Marineland heaters are great... I think Marineland makes a heater for 1-2 gallons that is around 15 dollars or so.

He's adorable! Almost matches his gravel, but I'm sure he'll color up in no time. ;) BTW I LOVE that jar decoration: Gabriel has one just like it. :D

Thank you all! Yes, I based the decor around him and am really proud of how it turned out!

I already really like the guy. His personality is a lot like like my first betta's. He's very inquisitive and likes to come up to the glass to look at me.

His eyes are kind of a shiny pale blue when you look up close. He's so pretty. I will call him Rouge since you guys agreed! Thanks again, all. :)

I'm gonna check my other post for the heater. Wanna get him one on the way asap.

EDIT: Just bought the heater listed below from Amazon. Can't wait until it gets here. It got some pretty great reviews.
