You say you moved him to a 1 gallon critter keeper like that's so amazing. That's still NOT enough room for your betta. especially if you put stuff in there as well for him, that just takes up more room. fail, sry. He needs more room to thrive.

I Am Sorry

I Am Sorry Ya Think I Fail At Keeping Bettas I Don't Have A Whole Lot Of Room I Already Breed Cockatiels And Have 3 Dogs, I Will Move Him To 2.5 Gallon And Stop Posting On Here Cause Some Of You Guys Are To Crazy For Your Bettas Its Just Fish! I Mean I Like Bettas And Try To Care For It As Much As I Can But What Happen To People Keeping Bettas In Vases? Its Like Now They Need 5-10 gallons, And Are Harder To Keep. I Use To Just Hear That They Are Fine In The Betta Tanks. Well I Ain't Getting On This Forum Anymore Bye For Now!

xkatieebby, a 1 gallon may not seem like much but if he's moving from a much smaller tank without a heater to this one, it is an improvement. As long as regular water changes are done, some bettas do quite well in 1 gallon tanks. Sure, a larger tank may be preferable but until the OP upgrades to something bigger, a heated 1 gallon will do fine.

I'm glad to hear that Firework is happy in his new home.

wow that was very rude! A 1 gallon is fine as long as the water changes are met. Dont insult people when you dont have the facts cause it makes you look like a fool.

I am Sorry its just that i am getting frustrated cause i am trying to do better and people are trying to tell me i am failing and actually it looks more like a 2 gallon? I really ain't sure i will post pics but he seems happy and its alot more room and he is more active i think cause of the heater and also will it be better moved in the 2.5 gallon critter keeper with some live plants to maybe keep it healthier? the 1 he is in doesn't look crowded now but he is a shy boy likes to hide in cave during day and comes out at night! He spreads his fins out wide and flares at his reflection. I think he is a Super Delta Tailed and ohh i saw one look just like it on aquabid and they had it labeled as a red/gold dragon looked just like him. I will do 25% water change twice a week or is that to much? Cause it has no filter

I think you did just fine. If 1 gallon was an upgrade, hurray for your betta! And now he has a heater? Even better. :D Glad to hear he's happy and active... and welcome to the forum. XP
With a 1 gal you could do 100% once a week with a 50% in between. ^^

Regardless of the cost, he is a living organism which relies on their owners to keep them healthy.

What some of the posters are getting at is if you want to have a betta and watch him fulfill his full life expectancy (5++ years), as a responsible fish hobbyist there are steps to take to improve the odds. 1 gallon is fine and several posters have had success with it, just be prepared to do daily maintenance. If you are unable to keep up with the latter, don't be surprised if he gets sick or perishes early and you find yourself scurrying off to buy another, which is not a bad thing for pet shops as they will gladly sell you a replacement

You have to be the most RUDE person I've seen on this forum. There's no use arguing with you about how completely rude your post was. It's clear that your intention wasn't to help Firework, but it was to make Firework feel bad when he/she was clearly trying to celebrate an update. If you can't be respectful then you have no place on a forum.
