From what I've read, Bettas get stressed out by larger spaces.

I have read anywhere from 10-20 shrimp per gallon depending on filtration and plants. Even if you stay on the low end that is over 500. Someone with more experience may chime in as I have just started my first shrimp tank. I am keeping RCS in a 20 gallon and I am not going to worry until I get over 200 in there.

I personally think a 20 gallon for a single male. I'm basing this 'get stressed by large spaces' thing on the experience of others, and what I've read.

Ok, I thought you meant like 5 gallons as a larger space. I personally think 5 as a minimum, but some people do 2.5
