    I had a mirror once before, but the bettas gotten used to it in the past. He has stop flaring at his reflection in the sides of the tank, so I think he’d ignore the mirror. He would perfor dancing for food instead.

    I’m thinking of upgrading my betta’s 2.5 to a 5.5g tank. He seems to be a very active for a betta, so I think giving him a bigger tank would help with his activeness. The tank isn’t currently heated with a heater, but is filtered. My room alone does get warm, normally it’s the warmest room in the house.

    I'm sure he will appreciate the bigger tank, most bettas do.

    Yes, get a bigger tank for him! I've never kept a tank smaller than a 10g but do the best you can, he'll love it when he gets used to it.

    I would put him in my 20L but I have male guppies in that tank. And I know bettas dont do well with guppies. He constantly flares at me, no idea why still, he just does. He has built bubble nests, which is good.


    The 5.5 will be a project for late May to mid June. Depends when I have enough time.

    I’ll get more pictures of him later today and upload them. He’s made a huge bubble nest a bunch of times.
