Wife gave me a 2.5 gal tank for Christmas, she knew I wanted to get back in the hobby again. So I decided to save a Betta from the dreaded cups you see them in at all the pet stores. It's a Dragon scale with red fins, called him Elliot. He's been in there a week now, seems very healthy and active. Would like to get a larger tank for him, I like the look of the Mr Aqua Mini Bookshelf tank, 23.6 x 6.7 x 9.4 6.5 gal, should give him a little more elbow room.

Welcome to the AC.

Congrats on the new tank and betta, agree that he needs a bigger tank, 5.5G minimum

I advise reading as many stickies as you can in the Beginner section, particularly the section on cycling a tank
