So at Walmart I found a beautiful red and silver crowntail betta (a color combination that I have wanted for forever) but I don't currently have a tank that I can keep him in. I do have a bowl though. Now before you judge I know that bettas need more room (I have three others, all in heated, filtered, planted tanks). My problem is I cant afford to get another tank right now, (I'm a broke teenager) so I was wondering if it would be ok to temporary keep him in the bowl until I can get a better tank. The bowl is about 1.5 gallons. My birthday is coming up on July 18th and I'm sure I can get my parents to get me another tank then. I have fallen in love with this fish and it makes me terribly sad to think that he could be stuck in one of those cups for the rest of his life. I have been watching him in the store for about a week now and I can only imagine how much ammonia is in that cup, plus many of the other fish around him were sick and dying. Out of the bettas there he was one of the only heathy looking active ones. If it would be ok to keep him in the bowl, when should do water changes and how much. Also what are some things I can do to make it more comfortable. I have an extra bubbler and an heater (though it might be to big for the tank). If it wouldn't be ok does anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks for the help.
