    Here's a photo of my newly refurbished 2.5 gallon tank, for my crowntail Santiago.
    I really love it! The photo doesn't capture the warm lighting like I wanted, but it's pretty anyway :)

    Some might have conflicting opinions on whether I should be able to keep a crowntail in a 2.5 gallon, but he is very docile and slow. I have kept many a betta in this size and never had a single problem for me or the fish in general.

    I hope you like the new tank :)

    Nice tank!

    I'd personally say that 2.5 gallon is the bare minimum, but I kept a crowntail in a 2.5 without any issue. Longer-tailed bettas tend to not like to move a ton anyway (some do!), so no issue there as long as you keep water quality up. Bigger is better, of course!

    I wouldn't go lower, I just like 2.5 gallons because they are compact and easy to transport.
