Honestly, how can you tell they're happy in a small tank? I mean, there are some bettas that stress in larger environment.

But I guess the only way to tell how happy they are in larger tanks is mainly by activeness compared to their activeness in a small environment...hmm...

As long as you keep up with the daily water changes, it's fine to have a small tank that is under 2 gallons. The only problem I have with those small tanks is that they are hard to heat. If you can find heaters for them, that's great.

Yes, heat is the main thing, but it needs to be safe.

Well, I take extra care of my water baby! (You can tell because I call him my water baby LOL) I KNOW that he is fine. They don't really NEED a huge tank or else I would never get a betta in the first place! End of argument, please! :)

Well I think it also really depends on the fish...

For instance, a tiny female crowntail would probably be happy and have plenty of swimming room in a 1 gal, depending on the size of the tank. However, it would be cruel of me to keep my giant betta in a 1 gal tank. It also depends on the personality and activity level of your fish imo. I have a crowntail who is just like, lazy, and likes to sleep, he doesnt care what size his tank is!

Yes, same with mine and he's a crowntail! I think he has a nicely sized tank. He is not a giant betta, he's only itty-bitty. LOL
