Flyby you've got the cover needed in the 2 gal, you know what you're doing for water changes, you should be good to go to get a little guy. And hurry up so we can raise 2 baby betta's at the same time and compare notes :p
    Pardon me - didn't expect a response like that - you guys seem to know best.

    What you call opinionated and damning, most of us call experienced and informed. Ibagby, you are new here so maybe you just don't realize who the better informed people on this forum are... But don't you think it's rude to come here and within a month call us all opinionated and damning? Especially one of our favorite senior members like Imma24.

    Personally, I also don't see the point in putting a fish in a 2.5g no matter how young the fish is. That size tank is a torture chamber in my damning opinion and should not even be sold. If you have a cycled 5g that you seem to intend to put the fish in eventually, why not buy a few floating plants and put the fish in it now. Still seems like a better option over an uncycled 2.5g no matter how many water changes you are going to do.
    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.

    So, between boyfish being so skittish and water quality issues I'm having in his tank, I decided to put the plants I had been saving for the tank I'm setting up into his tank instead. And this is what it now looks like!
