A single male Betta splendens can live in a 18.9 Litres (5 US G.) as they are not heavy waste producers and are not too bothered about vast amounts of swimming space. While they would appreciate 37.9 Litres (10 US G.) or larger, a 18.9 Litres (5 US G.) will suffice for a single fish. Make sure the tank is well filtered, matured and heated, and provide the fish with hiding places including tall plants (either live or silk, not plastic as plastic will tear their fins). Bettas are not best designed for tall tanks, a rectangular or square 18.9 Litres (5 US G.) is best, although the open top designs are less preferable as Bettas can jump, stick to tanks with fixed lids.
perhaps this is why ? :)
