My ex had a 1gal bowl he wasn't using so he gave it to me. He also had a small critter keeper that he said would be useful as a QT tank. Anyway, looks like I'll be able to get the red halfmoon on Wednesday (that is if I can get to the store). Pls no comments on how "1gal is too small" I'm in complete agreement to 99% of Betta's.. but I also believe that there are those finicky Betta's that seem to be much more comfortable in something a little smaller. Bloo stopped making bubble nests for me and kept getting stress stripes when I moved him into 3.5gal.. he'd lay down on the bottom of the tank unless it was feeding time. I put him in the bowl an hour ago and he's flirting with his fins and much more livelier! The red halfmoon has been in a 20gal tank at the store so if I'm able to get him, he'll be going in the split 7gal.
I'm super excited! He'll be QT'd though until most of his fins grow back.
