my best rule is, if something seems wrong, do a water change! its amazing how fast the fish look better!
of course, sometimes a water change isnt enough.
but good luck with your fishies!

He has getting so big now. I was thinking about moving him to a 2 1/2 gal fish bowl so I can restock my 10 gal with some lep. long fin danios. If i move my betta to a 2 gal id have to do 50 % water changes what like every other day? Or should I get a 5 gal for him? i still what him to have room to swim around but i'v noticed that my 10 gal is a tad deep for him. He seems to like it better when the water level gets low. Just wanted to get some thoughts on the matter before doing anything.

He's gorgeous!

I would honestly get him a 5-gallon if possible, your water parameters will stay more stable and he'll have plenty of room to swim. You can cycle a 5-gallon like you would a 10-gallon and just do weekly partial water changes.
