Hello and question!

Hi All!

I have some questions concerning my betta's aquarium upgrade and the aquarium advice forum seemed like it was the place to be! I want to get this aquarium tank so I can have 2 plants and they can get bigger. And I want my betta to be happy and thrive! I have had him for 2 years in his current gallon fish bowl and I want this change to good so I do not harm him in any way.

Thanks!!!

Also, I realize this is probably not the place for the question to be answered... I'm exploring the forum for that!

Just saying hi. Baby (betta) is my only fish and I like him a lot... he is quite expressive and gives me his opinion about most things so I just want to get it right for him.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

I would say no to that aquarium. Bettas need more surface space than most fish, and since that is a bowl, it wouldn't work out. Bettas take air from the water surface, and if those plants ever grew big, he would have a hard time getting any.
I would try to find a bowfront or rectangle/square tank for him. The bowfronts look pretty cool too. Also, I would try to get at least 5 gallons for him, a filter and a heater.

Welcome. That 8 gallon bowl seems kind of expensive to me. Have you thought about the fluval chi or edge?
