Question Jose's tank....

I have a betta named Jose and he makes his tank super dirty in ONE day!! mommy cleans his cage, Jose makes it dirty. I even use the special water prep that is supposed to take out the bad minerals and etc. and encourage slime coat.

My roomies betta, Mr. Sinister doesn't make his as dirty as Jose. His can go quite a while, meanwhile i've cleaned Jose's like 3 times to his one! i'm going crazy!!

and by super dirty i mean there becomes this nasty film on his water!

any reccomendations? ( i know he eats his food b/c i feed it to him and watch him eat them so i know it's not too much food making the water yucky)

thanks,

Is there anyway you could get him a 5 gallon tank? If you keep him in a bowl, you will need to change his water everyday.
