I'm not a huge fan of any fish in very small containers, but it wouldn't be abnormal to have a 1.5 gallon, lots of people do it.

You would need some kind of heater though, for that.

I personally have a huge betta clan in a 75 gallon community tank (Males, tons of females, no aggression) and they couldn't be happier. The bigger the better imo, but that would work.

could probably do better on your own. Silk plants are good, avoid plastic as they can tear up your bettas fins. They also dont like current - an air pump with a hang on filter in a 1.5 gallon is going to be very stressful for the betta.

If you needed to keep it simple / cheap - just get yourself a 1.5 gallon bowl, get a mini heater, set up some silk plants and call it a day.

If you felt more ambitious you could do the same with some live plants. There's some very cheap easy stuff that will live in very low light that will make your betta much happier and improve water quality drastically.

So, long story short - i wouldn't buy that kit. For $20 it is a good deal, but i wouldn't use a filter or an air pump in a 1.5 gallon tank.

Petsmart sells 2.5 gallon tanks for around 13.00 dollars, then all you would need is a heater and some decorations. (filter isn't 100% necessary as long as you keep up with water changes.)

I believe it is about 12 x6 inches. I could be wrong, I don't have one, but someone here on the forum does, it is where I learned about the 2.5 gallon tank.I think some people here have the tank you originally posted too. It's not a bad tank, I honestly almost got it for my one betta Batman. :]
