    An attractive fish, but I'm not a fan of such small aquatic environments for fish.
    The mirror placed beside the container will bring out an aggressive response which is stressful for the fish.

    Hi MitchM, I remove the mirror already, I just place it temporarily to make the betta flare. I also transfer the betta on a bigger container

    yes, they can breathe outside the water this is because in their natural habitat the oxygen is poor due to thick vegetation

    Right, they've evolved so they can survive in temporary puddles and pockets of rainwater found in various large plants.
    They survive on a mainly carnivorous diet. That's what has kept me from keeping any so far.

    I hope you gave it a bigger home as you stated. This is way too small for beta. It can barely turn around.
