Betta Fish Care Tips: Below are the tips to take care of your Betta Fish 1) Water Temperature - To keep your betta hail and hearty, dont forget to provide it with lots of clean and warm water. The aquarium’s temperature should never fall below 74 deg Fahrenheit (23.5 deg Celcius). The ideal temperature should be between 78 and 80 deg Fahrenheit (25.5 to 26.5 deg Celcius). Hence, a heater and a thermometer is a must for your betta tank. 2) Aquarium Space - Provide sufficient space in your aquarium for the betta. Keep your betta in an aquarium of at least 10 gallons (around 38 litres) and ensure that the betta has at least 5 gallons (19 litres) of the tank space dedicated to the betta. This will let your betta or any other fish live healthily in your tank. 3) Water Condition - Perform your weekly 10 - 15 % water changes so that the aquarium always has clean water and the waste not cleared by the water filter will be cleared. When selecting a filter for your betta fish tank ensure that the filter will not produce excessive current in your tank, as this will make it difficult for the betta to swim. 4) Food - Always remember that Betta is a carnivore hence needs a varied and a high protein diet. Most frozen or processed tropical fish foods are appropriate for your Betta. Bettas have small appetites so don’t overfeed them. They should be able to consume all the food within two minutes of feeding. Always remove the leftover food from the tank immediately after the fish stops eating as this could contaminate the water in the tank. 5) Hiding Places - In order to feel comfortable, Betta fish need to have lot of hiding places. Ensure that you provide them with soft cover using live or artificial plants. 6) Companionship - Male Bettas are very territorial toward any fish that they think is another male Betta invading their territory.

The bigger the aquarium, the less frequently you need to do water changes and vice versa.

and I have had 2, I got a new one today, hopefully, this one survives
Give me more details about your tank, tank size, live or artificial plants, what kind of filter you have, do you do any regular water changes? So I can try to help.
2.5 for smaller finned (females, Plakats etc.)
They can survive in 2.5 but not be happy
