I can tell you my females never ate the cherry reds I had in the tank, but I can't say the same for my king, he ate ghost shrimp for breakfast

Most people on here that I have seen have their bettas in good homes of 2.5g+, which are filtered and heated. I don't think that anyone who knows good fish care in general would put a betta in a tiny enclosure, so I really don't think this particular fish has a giant misunderstanding about it as you seem to suggest.
Oh we'll you're right I worded it wrong

I have my betta in a 5 G with java moss hornwort and some smaller plants I don't know the name of he's sharing the home with some snails and he goes straight to the same spot when I feed him!!

Hi, fellow Fish_lover! I'm in agreement with you about treating bettas kindly. When I see them in their teeny tiny bowls at the pet store, I always want to buy them all and give each one a nice, roomy new home
I have a crowntail male in a 5g for now, but when I get my 55g (have SER-ious MultiTank Syndrome, haha), I'm going to move him to my 15g column, like Surfer has.
Bettas are just magnificent. I'd love to have a house full of them.

Hi, Surfer, sorry for the loss of your betta pal. I'm planning to move my crowntail betta Renji to a 15g column soon, and I like the setup in your pics. Could you tell me what kind of plants and rocks you have in there?
Thanks!

Yesterday I may have saved 1 betta from a horrible life and another one I did save from a horrible life. One was in petsmart where a lady and her daughter where gonna buy one and get one of those horrible little 0.5 gal or something cubes. I spent like half an hour explaining everything to her and convinced her so she's gonna use an empty 10 gal they got at their house. The other one was a baby female my gf was gonna get and put in one of those cubes. I talked to her and put my foot down and were not gonna get her one until we get a bigger tank with everything.
