Get the betta out of this tank! This fish needs a lot of fine plants to hide. And btw: Plants are good not only for aesthetic reasons but also for a biological balance and to produce oxygen for the fish. This ist animal cruelty! :-(

I think it very harsh of you to say this is animal cruelty as a 3 gallon tank is a good size, and this is filtered and such, which is way more than most give their bettas. And although some more plants would look great and the betta would be happier- this is again, not animal cruelty...

Lol aquaticscaper. Bettas are anabantoids which means they breath oxygen out of the atmosphere. So no live plants would not help this fish breath. But i agree, plants and different gravel would make a world of difference on this tank.

I also said in the first place, that the fish need plants to HIDE. That the plants produce the oxygen was noticed only in passing. The aquarium is definitely not appropriate to the species!

This fish really does need plants to hide in! Plus, he REALLY needs a heater. Try

Nice betta! Please give him a plant or two. Real or fake plants. Fish feel safer when they have at least one plant to hide.
