    alright my first crowntail i got when it was a baby, I mean i didnt really even know the sex of it. So he started out in a 1.8 gallon, grew up and went to a 4 gallon cube, so he was alway was happy, but about 6 months ago i got my king plakat, assume it just a normal plakat, anyway i moved slayer into a gallon again, he was super happy moving around. well he only stayed in that tank for a month. then i got him a 5. SO with the new betta, from other thread i switched him up again. He loves that gallon tank. I bought a cheap tetra halfmoon just for led lamp. So i put him in the tank. he moves makes bubble nest seem so happy, 10x happy as he was in his big tank. So does he like the tiny tank. I hope this post is not hard to follow. I already have the bowlfront 3.5( i thought it was 3). In a nut shell; i have noticed the betta is 10 times happier in the small tank. Why?

    I've noticed that some betta never get out of the cup. It's what they have known for most of their life and never seem secure in a proper sized environment. Another way to help them get out of the cup mentality is to provide small spaces with plants or ornaments for them to hide in when they are feeling insecure in a larger tank.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    i like that expression, and i got him as pretty much a fry, so he lived in the orginal 1 gallon for maybe half a year before i got into fish and learned better. then he got his big boy tank, lots of cover on all sides but i left the middle for swimming. maybe i just got there weird one, he is healthy about 90% water changes each week. I only keep 2 "betta cups" worth of water from the previous change.
