Questions about Stress and Lighting

I put my betta in a 10 gallon (see previous thread that starts with border collie) LOL. He hasn't been liking it but given this is the 3rd day. Thanks for everyones advice.

I am starting to regret not leaving him in the 3.5 gallon or getting him a 5 gallon. I REALLY dislike the look of the 10 gallon incandescent bulbs at the moment but really liked him under LED lights. The 10 gallon plus LED Lights is pretty pricey (I just got the 35$ tank).

If I decide I prefer 5 gallon with LED lighting or 10 gallon with LED lighting OR his 3.5 gallon back is it dangerous to move him?

Also does anyone have the Marineland 10 gallon BioWheel (that is 75$ GASP), or Marineland Crescent 5

I don't want to switch out if it is bad for him it is more for aesthetics at this point. Thanks!

No I don't think so as long as there is some indirect light. But I am a newbie.

What type of lights you have or don't have won't bother your betta. Brightness is another issue - bettas can be stressed in super bright light. It can always be toned down with floating plants (a great way to make bettas feel more confident - attacks from birds and stuff come from above so floating plants = security). :)
