Their personalities can really vary and you just don't know how aggressive your betta will be. So if you're prepared with a 4-5g back up tank...

It was sold as "Mini Landscape Rock" basically unbranded Seiryu Stone and cheaper but just as good :) 2.5 per kg instead of close to 7 per kg over here.

I'm really happy with it
