Old thread but I do like a nice 5-10 gallon filtered tank with warm water and some acidity for healthy bettas. They'll live for years in terrible conditions though just like outside dogs living off their own poo and rocks and twigs. Just thought I'd warn you that bamboo is not fully aquatic so when it starts to die off you need to get it out of the tank before it rots in the water and makes the water toxic.
Thank you for the info.
