My Betta is in my 40 gallon, and I often wonder if other people have them in larger tanks or usually smaller ones. I understand the ideal size for them is 7g - 10g because they're not used to big open water, but I don't have anywhere else in my bedroom for a tank that size. I had him in a hex 2 gallon but I don't think he liked it in there that much, he just floated in one spot a whole lot of the time unless he was fed. He built bubble nests in the 2 gallon though, and he doesn't in this 40g tank. I think it may be only because of the current though.
