    After my poor betta passed a week ago, I finally got a new one. He is a gorgeous white crowntail. I already have him in his new home and he seems very happy enjoying the tunnels and the plants, I guess 6.6gal is a little bigger than the death cup at PetCo. I'll post pictures as soon as I recharge the batteries for the 'ol camera.

    I also picked up a new aquaclear 20 filter to replace the junky one that came with the bookshelf tank, figured might as well go all out for this guy. (I of course have the old media in the new filter for seeding purposes).

    Look forward to your pictures, and one question: Can a betta do well in a small 1.5 gallon tank? By what others have I am wondering if that is too small, I don't like to see them in a cup(mean!) but I thought they got stressed if the tank was too big. How about 3 gallons?

    i wouldn't recommend anything smaller than 2.5 gallons for a betta, and even that i think is a bit too small (and i can tell you from experience they are a pain to keep clean!). 5 gallons or more is really best for them :)
