I think a betta will love that. I have one betta in a 2.5 gallon bowfront and one in a 3 gallon cube they both love it. I know it's not the best situation possible but it's the best I can do with limited space, and goodness knows it's better than the tiny cups at the pet store.

Male or female? Does it matter?

I don't think it matters, males tend to have longer fins and are showier so most people like them more.

What does a beta need? I had one a while back. Can't seem to remember
I have tank, heater, light that's growing plants really wel. I love this kit from petco! What do they eat? What water conditions? I want this to be perfect for the little guy. This is about a month old and is tank number 5! Thanks!

I'd do it more than that. I had minor ammonia issues after just 2 days in my 2g, and .5ppm after just 5 days in it! I now am really irritated with myself, he's lost a lot of tail. Meticulous water changes and care after that! Do you have a water testing kit (not strips, which are usually not very accurate).

Stop betta abuse !!!

Yes a heater! Unless its 80 inside all the time lol. Keep his temp between 76-78. Get a thermometer too. So you know what the temp is

How much does the filter disturb the water? There are ways to buffer it.

Ok. I have a heater. I have upgraded the filter media to a carbon bag and Lots of media. I can adjust the flow from the return pump. It's actually 90 outside. Florida. Lol. But 74ish inside. I have a little lcd thermometer. It runs around 78.
