Well thanks Bubbles. She seems fine and you think she is full grown huh could be full grown. I think she will be fine. I'm doing everything I can for her to be as happy as possible. She even has a light over her like for fish tanks. She has her air hole and I bought the water conditioner, the Aqua Salt everything in my power to make sure she is doing alright.

Very cute little girl you have!

I'm not trying to be overbearing, and I apologize if I come off that way, but 2 times a week for cleaning that tank seems to be too little. It should be cleaned at least every other day; generally, I've been told that one gallons should be cleaned every day because of how much ammonia the fish produces, but as I said every other day would suffice as well. :)

i just got that same tank for Christmas today, from my sister! it's a pretty good tank, imo. i have two bettas i keep in one gallons, and they're thriving, not just surviving!

in a one gallon, you do need to do more water changes, but twice a week is pretty good.

there are plenty of 2 and 3 gallon tanks that will fit in smaller spaces, including these two:

i have the 3 gallon, in white. it's a bit awkward to lug around, but if you don't use the undergravel filter, and instead add gravel and siphon, you should do okay. :3

Well thank you both. But there is another tiny problem I don't have that kind of cash right now for a new tank that is more than $20 plus my mom gave me too many gifts already many of witch where expensive so. I think I will do fine. I had a Betta fish ounce that lived for a year in a much smaller place and my mom changed his water ounce a week. So I think she will be fine. Thanks for the advice though!
