Yes, he's still got room to move and with a nice big leaved plant to sleep on and a smooth decoration or 2 to swim around or through, he should be happy. You could also give him a ping pong ball to play with and add an air stone to help put more oxygen in his water.loubie said:I have just realised that my tank is about 4 gallons - would this still be OK?
I'd agree with that.. we went the plastic route & tried getting ones that seemed safe, but ended up wasting enough money to buy some nice silk ones. If you go with live ones, make 100% sure you trust the seller to be supplying you with snail-free plants and that the leaves of the plant will be soft for your Betta.Asinity said:I will tell you right now - invest in silk plants. Plastic are cheap, but they can and likely will cut your betta. I suspect that is where Kyler got his fin rot from, his tail looked cut and then it started decaying. Ever since I removed the plastics and medicated him he's started to look better and it looks like it's halted.
But definitely consider this when buying decor for the tank.
Yea, you'd really not have room for a catfish or oto.. You could maybe put a mystery snail in there with him, but like Phloxface says he won't get lonely without it.loubie said:Thanks for your replies, could I add a catfish or oto with him so he isnt on his own or would it be too much?
