    Ehh, don't know why I spazzed like that a few months ago, srry...

    But I find my female bettas are still a little tense in my 75g, there's 2 of them, so I'd beware.
    In use: 75g 29g 25g 18g 15g 15g 15g 15g 15g 15g 15g 10g 10g 10g 10g 5g
    Empty: 35g 25g 15g 15g 5g

    I'm running out of tanks

    a 1 gallon is way too small for an ADF.

    I have a question regarding heating and WC's in a small tank. Im looking to setup a betta for my desk in a 1g or max 2 g tank/bowl and id like to do away with a filter if possible. How often would i need to do PWC's and how much wwater would i change?

    ALso the temperature in our house varies a lot especially in the house in winter...could i do a small heater or would that be too much for the litte betta?

    Thanks all!

    Betta's are fine for a 1g tank. Emg recommends them in her article "small tanks".

    A betta in a 1 gallon tank is torture.

    Try locking yourself in a toilet stall, then after a couple of years you can come out and let us know what it's like to be cooped up like that.

    No need to go on the offensive Carla.

    I was asking a hypothetical question AND building on the information stated in the article thread on betta care.

    Bettas are certainly fine in 1 gallon tanks, as long as you're willing to put in the work to keep them healthy. The best bettas in the world are raised in 250 ml whiskey jars, but receive multiple daily water changes. If you are willing to put in the increased amount of work involved, there's really no reason you can't do it. Since we can't speak on the happiness of our fish companions, you can only go by health, and as as far as I'm concerned, you can absolutely, without question, keep a betta healthy in a 1 gallon container.

    I tend to agree and disagree. It sure can be done but I think that if the person is willing to put in the extra work they might as well go that extra step and get a larger tank. Even 5 gallons is going to be better for the betta and less stress for the owner. JMO though
