I can assure you that almost everything that you know about bettas is probably a lie. There's a lot of misinformation about bettas out there, and a shocking amount of people who believe that all bettas need to survive is a small bowl of water, some food, and a water change once a month. Did you know, with the proper care, Betta fish can live up to 5-7 years? Wow! That's way longer than the general thought 1-2 year lifespan, isn't it? They truly are amazing creatures.
Speaking of myths- did you know the belief that they prefer small spaces and dirty water is also false? You see, if you're looking into getting a betta, the smallest tank you should go for is about two and a half gallons, but trust me on this- go for a five gallon. Your fish will come alive with so much personality- I myself just upgraded my boy Pepper from his 2.5 to a 5 gallon and let me tell you- he has never been zippier. He's constantly exploring and moving, it's a lot of fun to watch him :) But he would never be able to move like that in something as small as this bowl :( Instead he would probably sit on the bottom and perhaps tailbite out of frustration.
As for the dirty water myth- if your water is visibly dirty, then it is actually burning the fish. You see, when fish breathe and waste, they create ammonia in the water, which is toxic to them. In a tiny bowl like this, you'd have to be doing 100% water changes every single day in order for your fish to be safe from the ammonia, and even that isn't ideal- all those water changes will really stress your little buddy out :(
Also- did you know betta fish are tropical animals? They are used to waters that are in the temperature range of 75-80 degrees. You may say "my house is never cold so i dont need a heater!" but, please, think about it this way- water will always be a few degrees lower than room temperature- in order to keep your betta's home warm, your house would have to constantly be at 80p degrees! And that doesn't account for temperature rises and drops- which can send betta into shock!
Which brings us to our next point, you cannot safely heat a tank unless it is at least 2.5 gallons, which is why it's the minimum tank recommended.
bettas are super fun and zippy little buddies when given the chance to be- my pepper follows my finger and even begs for food! It's really cute :)
So please consider passing on this tank for now, and investing in a more suitable home for your fish! The only creature that could survive in this is a snail.
