Yes. The cycling one is less than 3 gallons. I asked around and was told to cycle it. (Personally, I don't mind water changes, but I want to do whatever's best.)
As far as moving him is concerned -- I brought him home in a cup. He was put in a one-gallon bowl type thing, until I moved a few weeks later. Then, I moved and transferred him to a bigger container with a UG filter. I never knew about betta fish and water current. It REALLY stressed him out. He is a tail biter and, a few weeks later, he got fin rot. I put him in medicated water in a 5.5 gallon tank, while I decided on what to make his permanent home. (He did NOT seem to like the 5.5 at all.) I bought two of the exact same aquariums. One has a cycling filter and one has no filter. He is in the one without the filter. When he goes in the other one, it will pretty much be the exact same setup he has right now, but with a low flow filter. I don't plan to move him after that, unless he gets too big for the small tank.
