I know another fact I don’t know if it’s a fact everyone know but it’s that they like when you tap on their tank. Most fish HATE when you tap on their tank, especially bettas

One thing that is irritating is how people pronounce this word BETTA incorrectly. It is not bay-tah. It is BET-TA. Bay-tah is a VHS video. Bet-ta is a fish. I can not believe with all the access to pronounciation so many people pronounce it wrong still.

Great info. Thanks for posting. I work at a pet store too and it just astounds me what people believe. Luckily I can refuse to sell animals including fish to people if I don't think they'll take care of them. I've had to explain all that a million times. Gold fish too. People want to put them in tiny bowls or add them to a tropical fish tank. They also think goldfish live only a year or less. Well that is correct if you keep them in a bowl they can barely turn around in and never clean it. The one thing I'd mention (although I guess this would be more for experienced owners.) Females CAN be kept in groups called sororities. They have to have the proper space and enough hides etc and not all females will get along but I have 3 girls together and they don't fight. There is one dominant one and she keeps the other two in line but there is no fighting and they will actually school. It CAN be done but shouldn't be tried if someone has little to no experience.

We got our last beta from a Walmart where it was swimming in a small cup with another dead beta and green water. We scooped up the beta and dumped out the water and refilled the cup and bought it. We cleaned his tank every week and he lived for three years.

Am I the only person who gets annoyed by it being pronounced bAta? It's betta (bet - uh), Like saying "better" with an accent. http://www.dictionary.com/browse/betta?s=t Click the sound button. Not trying to be mean, this is just one of those things that annoys the crap out of me.

Not to mention that many of the pet stores I've been to advertise them as "live decor". Not living, breathing animals. Live decor.

It's no wonder why many people don't know/care about the quality of their lives.

So I was thinking about getting beta fish,
But the person who worked at my pet store said "Well- Um Beta fish can be aggressive towards each other- So i recommend you getting at least-One."
And I faced the tiny cups of water with one beta fish- And i thought. "Then why aren't they aggressive- They are so close to each other."- So I am like- "Are you sure, Like can't you try to at least put one with one-..-I really don't know what you mean?-"
And don't get me started on how Walmart treat there beta fish- They have them in very small cups- That are dirty, that have there waste, and it looks like there tails are rotting or mouths.
There was woman looking at them, and said "They all look sick, I'd rather not buy them from here if i were you-."
So we ended up not getting any.
So yeah- This all happened in like one day and i was very upset.

Growing up my sister and I were allowed one beta fish each. Our parents were pretty tight money wise and we lived 3 hrs from any decent sized pet store. Due to the harsh water conditions of where I live and the fact that we had to haul drinkable water from a hours drive away, we were only allowed a gallon of water per month each for our fish. So we has these big old glass gallon flour jars with a little Baggie of rocks in the bottom. We were broke children so the only decor for our poor fish were shells or cleaned marbles. The record longest to live in that was 5 years. His name was laser. He probably lasted that long because I was a teenager then and kept up better on routine cleaning.

When I moved out and became my own adult, I saved up for this little used 3 gallon aquarium. It didn't go well due to my inexperience and some bad advice from the pet store. But my second aquarium and attempt has gone great. I did better research and selection this time.4 healthy little fish, variety of cover, and only one death in almost a year. I hope to do a big corner aquarium someday.

Female beta fish love living together and even though they are aggressive doesn't mean you cant house them together...they are aggresive in different ways all but work together...even though they are aggressive its not to the point where they will kill each other...please do your reserve and try something before you make statements and post them all over youtube

I love your video. Our Bettas always have at least a 5 gallon heated, filtered tank. I was just kind of bothered by the "little things like fish" comment. To the fish, they are not "little things". I own expensive Flowerhorns to rescued feeder Goldfish. I give them all the same respect and its the same respect I give my dog. Like I said, your video is a very good guide to Betts care and I believe you love fish as much as I do but certain language makes people think that fish lives don't mean as much as dogs or cats but to that fish, their lives are just as important.

In the end, your guides are great and I hope a lot of people follow your expectations for fish care.

I used to work in a pet store that had a tropical fish section, and I would run from the other side of the store when I would hear a co-worker try to sell a beta fish and a teeny bowl... gah... my mom taught me from early on that in order for bettas to be happy, it needs at least a 10 gallon, slow current tank with a lot of hiding space... like your tank, actually.

When I was young, I had a beta fish. It was in a good tank size, and it had a filter and a bubbler. One day, I thought it wasn't eating so I put loads of food in its tank. I didn't know what tail rot was, but it did get it. My dad tried to heal it, but it sadly passed away. Now I know what tail rot is, but I do know it is in a better place now.

When I was 4 or 5, I had a beta fish in a regular small fish bowl. Then one day, we got a goldfish at a carnival. So, we brought it home and place him in the fish bowl. The next day, we went to my grandfather's for dinner and when we came back the gold fish was on the ground and the beta fish happily swimming in circles. My poor goldfish commited suicide. So yeah, that was great.

We miss you please like this comment. Can I get 150 likes please. And my 2 baby bettas are in small tanks but they like it. When they get bigger we will move them into 250 gallon tank and get 3 250 gallon tank for all of them. P.S. I have a Channel called Smith family tube watch the summer drink please.

How can you teach people things when Fluval has a video that specifically says that YES, you CAN purchase a 1/2 gallon - 1 gallon of water.  I've been posting things on Fluval saying that it's not a good idea to do so.  I don't think they appreciate it.  Oh well, I'm sure the fish don't appreciate it either.

I wouldn’t do it. Betta’s can confuse long guppy fins for another male betta and kill them. You could try bottom swimming fish like cory cats or fast fish with short fins like tetras. You might need a bigger tank to keep all of them though.

I have a male veil tail in a 3 gallon tank. I’ve had him for about 2 months now. He has a tetra filter and I do partial water changes every week. For some reason, he’s become more lethargic and spends a lot of time laying on the bottom of the tank. He’s started developing a weird substance on him and has some tail rot. I went to the pet store which recommended bettafix, but he hasn’t gotten better. What can I do to help him? I keep seeing conflicting information. He’s been this way for about two weeks now, and is only becoming more lethargic. He has a heater and the substance doesn’t look like ick.

My betta dish lives in a small decent bowl, but still not that big, but it doesn't really move around ALOT, it still moves but not as much as it use to. Is it old age(I've had her for six months) or is it because of the small bowl? I'm pretty young so I don't have a lot of money and I don't know what to do.

My beta fish story:
So in 5th grade, my science teacher had many fishes and snails. to describe the teacher in little words, she looked like she lived in school and was very cranky and rude. she had at least 5 50 gallon tanks, and some fishbowls. Weirdly the snails were in the tanks and the fish, which were mostly beta fish, were in fish bowls. At the beginning of the year, she had 6 beta fish and at the end of the year, she had 0. One of the fish was not fed and ate 2 fish. And the rest of the fish died because she never cleaned or fed them. I wrote her a letter saying that the fish shouldn't be treated like that and that they deserve a proper home, she literally gave him to me the next day. My betta fish was beautiful and I named him Muvi. He died 1 year and a half later. I tried to care for him and I fed him his favorite meals, cleaned his tank every 2 weeks. I would buy plants for him, but because he was so mistreated before, he died.
RIP Muvi <3

I was under the impression that betas only needed very small tanks as a kid, and I had a 2 gallon aquarium starter tank. my mom would get me a beta fish claiming it was the perfect size. the longest one lived was 6 months, and the average was 2 months.
I thought it was the water but even after monitoring carefully for changes in quality and hardness my favorite one still died after only half a year.
I'm glad that I know better now but it makes me sad that I never had a chance to give them a good long life.

Everything you said here is completely true. I recently informed my older brother of these misconceptions after he bought a betta for his son and stuck it in a fish bowl. I'm glad he took my advice since I've kept a lot of betta in my life. I sold him an older 3 gallon tank of mine that I wasn't using, and suggested he get a filter and air bubblier. He thankfully got everything he needed for him and now his betta is really happy.

I once bought the biggest plaket/king that i could find at Petco and took him home. After putting him in the 2.5 as a temporary holding/quarantine tank, he spent his first few minutes swimming in circles. It was sad to see him so confused once he realized he was out of the cup and actually had to bump his nose against each tank side to figure out how big it was. Thankfully, after he got used to that, I set up my empty 10 gallon for him. He was so scared of the huge space at first and hid in the corner, refusing to go through the filters bubbles the next day or so. But, after he got over that with a bit of coaxing of food to travel around the tank, he eventually loved it. His favorite thing to do after that, aside from exploring, was to play in the filter current.

Note: Not all bettas can take the filter current and it does have to be adjusted to their level of swimming to not overpower them. I've had to do that with Vieltails, HMs, and crown-tails, ect. But this guy was the size of a small goldfish, 2 1/2 inches long, and had short fins. So, he was a bit better swimmer then the longer-finned betta. xD

Btw oddest thing ive ever seen, when i lived in seattle down by golden gardens idk if someone was being a dick or just realized that the tiny fish they bought were gonna get huge cause someone released comet goldfish into a creek / pond along a bike trail....I wasnt sure how to feel about how well those fish did(they did very well!) Either way...Dont release any sort of captive bred animal into the wild fools! Eventually the wildlife control came and removed them but it was interesting watching them grow!

I had a sick betta fish that I got from the pet store in a cup and he had fin rot! Horrible just horrible to keep these poor fish in such terrible conditions. I put him in a nice 10 gallon tank with a heater and filter and a couple live plants and some sand (No I don’t do gravel I hate cleaning that) and his fin rot healed right up! I still have him actually, his name is Jack!

I like to slowly increase water flow over weeks to strengthen my bettas.
They will always have a place in the tank to avoid the water flow.
It keeps them active and healthy.
I kept a betta from Wal-Mart for almost seven years.

Thank you for ecadcating people properly. We need more people like you. I just got a beautiful male betta but I've several in the past and thanks to your video I know how to take better care of him and know what I did wrong with them in the past. Thank you for all your videos.

I loooove Bettas. I ended up getting so many now I keep and breed them myself. All kept in 20L+ tanks and the longest I've ever had one live was my giant, lived for 14.5 years. Never been able to get that long since but I'm averaging 8 years or so with my guys. All heated, live planted, weekly water changes and a ton of live foods along with their pellets.
And they all have their own little personalities, the best part! :D

I've killed 2 betta fishes. My dad's friend gave them to me when I was 10 or something because they were "easy to take care of". I was so happy, I wanted a huge tank with plants and stuff but my mom was like "I'm not spending my money on that".
So please, pets are not things, don't give them as gifts (unless the person has mentioned that they wanted one).

Yeah people say that bettas are so adaptable that in the wild they live in little muddy pools, that's true but the betta fish you buy at petshmo are bred out of that gene, bettas are merely a decendant of the wild betta fish, so they don't have the ability to adapt they are just bred to be pretty, not to survive.

I had my female albino beta fish for two years before I accidentally killed her cause our tap water wasn't working right and the water was too warm for her. She had a 5 gallon tank, I think something like that, she was doing beautifully, she probably could have lived a few more years or something, she is now buried by a tree in the front yard with little flowers on her grave.

If you ever do any videos like this again, you should definitely mention proper feeding procedures for Bettas. I've had my betta, Sparta, for a year and a half and did everything right- except I didn't know how little you were actually supposed to feed them until he developed swim bladder issues. I've done everything from fasting him to medicating his tank but he's seen no improvement. ): (he also refuses to eat anything that isn't his pellets, so peas wont work.)

Buy some tall broadleaf plants for your betta to sit on near the surface- it'll make him very happy! Also it's always advisable to give them something to hide in like a little cave or anything they can fit inside. Makes them feel safer!

Someone help! About 2 months ago I got a betta fish and it was doing fine but after about a week it stopped eating and swimming around and I found it dead the next morning. I thought it was because I didn't have a heater and my house was kind of cold. So I got a heater and a new fish. And the same thing happened. Had it for a week and it stopped eating and swimming and died. So I upgraded to a 5 and 1/2 gallon tank, got plants and a cave, along with the heater and got my third fish. The guy at the pet store said I didn't cycle my tank so I did before I put my new fish in. I got her on Wednesday and yesterday (Tuesday) I noticed she wasn't eating her food. So I thought it was because of the kind of dirty water. So I did a about a 80% water change. I also had set some water in a bucket aside prior so it had a chance to grow some good bacteria. So I had about 1 gallon of the old water and like 1 gallon of the water that was sitting out and the rest new water. I conditioned it and everything. Btw I didn't scrub the sides of the tank or the plants so there would be some good bacteria left. So after I cleaned the tank I acclimated her for about 40 minutes and let her in she was swimming around and stuff but still wouldn't eat. Today (Wednesday, exactly a week from when I got her) she just sits on her betta hammock leaf and doesn't eat. ALL DAY! I'm scared she is going to die tomorrow please someone tell me what I'm doing wrong. This pattern keeps repeating itself with my fish. She hasn't eaten in almost 3 days. HELP!

Try dumping the water on your hand slightly below the surface of the water to break the heavy flow of the water being poured. Keeping him in the tank will be much less stressful than trying to catch him every time you clean

what kind of tank do you have? What kind of filter do you have?

I want a tank that wont leak or is cheaply made

I would like to get a filter that wont suck him up and kill him

I was surprised with a betta fish last night as a birthday present.

As happy as I am to have a new pet, there so much responsibility that goes into it.

Since he/she is in my care I want to give him a long lasting/ comfortable as possible life.

Please respond as soon as possible.

I have looked at plenty of online kits, but some leak others fish get stuck in filters :'(

I'm willing to pay for everything separately

Hey Taylor or any experienced Betta owners for that matter... I've got a question... I had two males in a 50 gallon tank and at first they fought each other over dominance and territory. After about a day they stopped and kept to their sides of the tank and their hiding areas. About a week later I bought tetras and other small fish including a female beta. Now the 2 males are all buddy buddy and hangout together without fighting each other or the other fish. Why is this? I'm so lost and utterly confused.

My male beta, Bruce Lee, recently died from most likely mouth rot because he had white spots on his mouth. But the thing is, we cleaned his tank fairly often so his tank was rarely dirty and after we had noticed he started to get white spots around his mouth we got fish medicine for him. Sadly it didn't work. I loved him so much and I miss him very badly.

Shaelin Rollman

I got a betta, like, 2 days ago and I have a 1.5 gallon tank to put a goldfish I got at a fall festival thing at my school a month or so previous to the betta. I was gonna get a 5 gallon maybe that was $40 at Walmart, but my dad said, "No, that's too big. He doesn't need that much space. It'll be a waste of money. Get the 1.5 gallon." Thanks dad. That fish died, R.I.P. Oscar. But now I have a betta. He seems to be doing great right now and just kind of roams around the tank, going around the fake plants and stuff. Not the best place for him, but I don't exactly have a lot of money right now considering I don't want to be broke buying all this fish stuff, but I made a promise to myself that if he lives a full year he deserves a 10 gallon tank. The only problem I have is that he would get bored and not have that much to do. My family just thinks it's a waste of time and money, but I really like having a fish. The only advice that I need is what to do to entertain my betta and also there's this blue light that I turn off at night. It came with the tank. I don't know if I should take it out because it's too bright for him or how long I should have it on. Everything else I think I'm good with. Only those two things. Sorry, this is a super long post.

I keep my betta in a 1-gallon mini-bow filtered tank. I put a bumblebee snail in as well as a ghost shrimp but I think he either ate the shrimp or bullied it to death because I can't find it. Do you think I have any possibility of introducing another small tank mate successfully?
Jess
Jess - 4 years ago
Alan Ward that tank is way too small for your betta let alone introducing your betta to other tankmates. If you want snails/shrimp I would say at least a 5 gallon, If you want other fish, a 10-20 gallon is a must so your betta doesn't feel insecure in a very small territory (he likely feels cornered and he is defending his territory since he can't get away)

Hi. I just want to butt in, and add onto the age of a betta. You are correct about them lving to about 4 years old, but just to add onto that, in extremely rare cases, bettas have been know to live up to 9 years. Like I said, rare, but it does happen. P.S., if you can't afford a tank right away, wait for petcos dollar per gallon sale, meaning, you can get a 10 gallon tank for 10$, 20 gal for 20$ and so on. But if you dont have a petco near by or something, just save your money. I have not spent my allowance for a couple months, because I always buy things for my betta. Its not a burden, either. Its like buying things for my child. I just want to be happy. Done ranting now.

When I was younger my mom and aunt got me and my cousin two male beta fish. My cousins lasted two months because neither he nor his mom washed the bowl, cleaned the water, or fed him regularly. On the other hand mine and my moms stayed alive for 8 months before my aunt came beging for us to give her Red to put in her classroom. (She's a teacher.) So my mom after a few days gave her Red with his food and tank and filter and he lasted maybe a month at the school. He died over a fucking break when my aunt decided he didn't need to eat.

My mom won't buy me anything for my betta fish, all I have is a fish bowl and it has these little pebbles I feed him but he won't eat them and he swims a lot around but I do clean his bowl often but I don't know what type of water I should give him? Please help!

This reminds me of my class pet. They keep it in a small box and feed it the wrong food. I hid the bad food and brought Betty food but the problem is I can’t provide a bigger tank. We had a lizard but, surprise! It’s dead. They tried to bring in another fish so this time I brought in a 10 gallon tank. That guy is doing great.

Could my water have killed my Betta? I use Berkey filtered water. Spring water first month then did a partial water change and added Berkey water with conditioner and she was hanging out at the top in a corner then dead the next morning! No signs at all! She was very alert and active little girl, then just 24 hours, not very responsive then dead!

Very cool and informative! Thank you again, have a good one :-)

When I was younger I bought one, in my head I felt like I was saving it, because even a kid can see that those fish weren’t happy living in nasty cups. I had done no research just had always seen them at walmart in cups and I felt bad so I bought it. Even as a kid I knew I had to get a big tank not a little bowl. I got it a 10 gallon, a 20 gallon filter. You’d have to be an idiot to think they love to live in cups.

A betta can live up to 7-8 years with proper care, 2-4 is only a half life for them.
And with a proper tank setup, multiple bettas will live together without problem, regardless of their sexes.

I actually found a great 6 gallon long rectangular tank that I kept just my betta in. There was extra room for her to swim from side and she loved it! I set up a long bubble wall at the back of the tank that she loved sleeping on and she also actually enjoyed swimming against the light current of the filter on the other end of the tank. There was a nice fine sand at the bottom of the tank and coral like structures for her to hide in. The happiest I saw her was when I switched her into that tank!

Oh my gosh, I was at the pet store yesterday and I was thinking of buying another betta. I was looking at what I thought was a gorgeous female betta, just absolutely stunning in colors. White and pink I believe. I looked at the description and it said “male” I was confused because this betta had to be a female, it didn’t have a long elegant tail like the rest of the males.. then I noticed how it looked like chunks of his tail were coming off and floating in the tiny container... i feel terrible for not getting him, because know I know it was tail/fin rot.

Betas actually do live in small areas, but those small, shallow areas are close to one another and the fish jump from puddle to putter when water is evaporating. Female bettas CAN live together better than males if you have over 5 together.

Hello, my betta (female) is acting very sick. Stop eating, doesn't look any different. I brought her a different food that the pet store said she might like more and a water additive to help with her slim coat. I got it just to try anything. She sleeps on the fake plants all the time. I don't have a heater, but I don't think that's the problem bc I never had one and she use to swim around all the time. Is there anything I can do? Thanks!

Gosh, this makes me feel so guilty... when I was 6 or 7 my mom bought a betta fish from PetSmart, which came in a little vase with rocks and bamboo (already a red flag, as I recognize years later today) There wasn't really a lot of space for him/her (as a young girl I just assumed the fish to be a girl aswell) to swim around in. My mom replaced the water every week, which is good, but she did it with tap water and there was no filter. We also fed it normal store-bought fish food every day. It only lasted a few months before dying. RIP betta fish

My research indicates a minimum of five gallons for a Betta. If you add any fish then you would need a larger tank. I keep a Betta and a bristle-nose placo in a ten gallon tank. Because I do not live in the tropics I also have a heater with my filter.

Of course if you watch five different videos on Betta care you will get 3 to 5 different recommendations for a minimum tank size.

I think your video was great you really did a good job.

I begged her just to buy that tank instead of bowls that she always saying to me that it's okay to me to keep my fish. I know 2.5 gallon is the minimum that's why i'm worried about him. Please somebody tell me if it's okay to keep him in that tank. I'm only 13 and I really want to earn money just to buy him a bigger tank but I have no idea how to. I don't want to ask my mom about the tank again because i don't want her to be mad at me. I should be thankful about the tank she bought for me instead of be spoiled.

Can you look at this tank An do you think this is ok? I have one in each of my kids rooms with just one Betta (i dont use the divider) Only thing in the tank is a small tree decor n lil color fish rocks at the bottom. They both seem happy move around , when its feeding time they get all excited and swim fast side to side! Had them for about a year so far an seem healthy. So in ur best opinion are those tanks for 1 betta OK? I know you said 2.5 gl tank , kids only have so much space in their rooms.

if you dont wanna click the link to the picture (i understand im good with tech)
then just search this up on google an let me know ur opinion and thank you!

I picked him because he looked sick and I just couldn't bare to leave him at the store. Its a 1.5 gallon tank and I do weekly water changes with a conditioner. Within a month of having him his fins are all back to normal and he's a beautiful teal and dark blue color and active as all get out so I thought I was the perfect betta dad. I'm glad I came across your video. If you could do one specifically on live plants and betta tanks.

I recently got an Elephant Ear Betta from a local pet shop. I saw that he was being kept in a cup and he was such a pretty betta, it was hard to leave him behind since I knew that there was a highschool nearby where kids mindlessly buy them just for the sake of buying them. (I'm not exaggerating, I heard a kid say they had two dollars and they were going to buy one and just put one in a bowl), having him around has been great. There's something soothing about watching him swim around and remain active and it makes me wonder if he ever sleeps. He has two tankmates in his 3.5 gallon tank, they're both snails and they mind their own business. I was afraid that my betta would attack my snails but he seems to be more interested in chasing bubbles haha

I had a Betta and I got him this very very small tank I put a plastic plant (bad) and some rocks I gave him random chain betta food I felt so bad because he lasted over 2 years and he was miserable now I'm researching and would love to own a hedgehog. I also felt bad because I forgot about him for months never cleaned out his tank but my mom fed him now I'm very educated and really want to convince my mom to get me a hedge to take care of. I love my betta very much RIP Francis loved but never forgotten. I think he might of had fin and tail rot. Even telling y'all kills me but if you have ANY advice for hedgies or other animals thanks

number 6 actually is true for the most part. male bettas make bubble nests when they're ready to mate to prepare for the eggs. most bettas won't do that if they are stressed out or don't feel safe. of course there are probably exceptions though

my mom bought me and my sister betas through our whole childhood cuz she didnt want us to have any other kind of pets (for years i begged for a dog and didnt get my first one until i was 11) and boy we had so many fish that deid so soon, my mom was horrible at keeping fish while me and my sister were too young to do anything, the longest a betta has lived was a beta i had all to myself that i got after my first dog and he lived for two years but after that we never owned fish again, i think it would be cool to have a betta again but my cat would prob eat it

hey so I've been keeping betas for quite a while, I currently have 4 happy male betas (my female recently passed from disease treatment and quarantine couldn't save (the "hole in the head" disease)). We use upwards of 60$ worth of treatments and oils for all of our fish, irrelevant I just wanted to let you know we care for them haha. But anyways, I saw you had a male beta with gups, I have a 10g tank w/ a male whos been single his whole life. What are your tho0ughts on adding guppies after he's been alone so long? The tank has lots of plants and a rock cave that my beta has pre claimed haha.

I have a question: I had a betta and he lived for 1 year. I kept the water clean, (we did have snails living with him) fed him well and put medication in the water when he needed it. How did he die? He might have gotten sick ( I was not there when he died(I was a school) my parents took him out cuz he was floating belly-up) (we sold and bought snails from the pet store)

You really should keep them in a tank bigger than 10 or 15 gallons. They don't do well in tanks with lots of flow, there not strong swimmers. This doesn't mean that you can keep them in the cup just not giant tanks

Hi Taylor, quick note on the females: I used to work at an aquarium fish warehouse, where we stocked any fresh water species you can think of. We had hundreds of bettas at any given time. The females we kept in 6ft tanks all together, and the males we had to keep in separate jars. If two males ended up in the same water for any reason, they would tear each other apart. The female tanks were mostly peacable. Both can be aggressive, but there is definitely a big difference between them :).

I went to a pet store recently where they kept betta fish in tiny little divided tanks, I was taking a good close look and one was DEAD! I told the lady the fish was dead and she just shrugged and kept walking she didn't even attempt to take the fish out and the little tanks were filthy.....I will never shop there again after that!

most of these are untrue because betta fish are native to southeast Asia , so they lived and are used to murky waters my friend cleans his tak once a month with no filter, why? because betta fish also breathe air, so if ylu betta is on the bottom on the tank taking a little "cat nap" he will go up open his mouth and go back to sleep

I have a 40 Gallon tank and I had a Male and a Female Beta along with Tetras. everything was great. Every so often then would chase each other but it just worked. I got lucky. They both had great personality. I loved them so much then after 5 years the male just died and a week later the female died. I tested water. I checked what I did wrong and everything seemed fine. I miss my Betas but I won't get anymore until I am sure I can give them a happy life.

Hi Taylor,
I was hoping you could give me some advice on a beta in my home. My mom bought my 16 year old brother a beta fish for his birthday back in March and has been kept in this 11 inch long tank that's about less than half that size with no filter. I tried to tell my parents that he needs a bigger tank but they won't listen and say that he's fine. I always felt so bad that he was stuck in such a small space, but recently I haven't seen him swimming around much. And a lot of today he stayed near the bottom of the tank not moving very much at all. (I'm not sure if he was sleeping or not though)
What should I do ? Do you think he's okay ?

I totally agree with these facts though, I have had my female betta for about 2 1/2 to 3 years now, and my female is AGGRESSIVE, as I said she killed any snail I give her as a friend, and she flares at my new not so vicious make betta, who was curious at first, THEN FLARED because she would flare, they are in separate tanks cause I know that my female would probably end up killing him

i hate seeing these fish in little fucking jars. I keep 15 Bettas in one 80 gallon aquarium. It's a mix of females and bettas. They never show aggressive behavior like nibbling or even chasing each other. I think if you have a nicely planted aquarium with enough space you can keep Bettas as community fish with other fish and with their own kind. I don't know what the limit is on how many you can keep. AT first I thought as long as each one had their own spot they would be fine but after a while they all started hanging out in one spot and sticking together. I keep a lot of floating plants as well since they like to chill in those. I was going to contact petsmart and petco tell them they can make more money marketing these fish as community fish instead of some oily faced teenager giving me bullshit advice on how i can't keep even two together or they'll tear themselves to shreds.

The Ppl in the Pet store said that add 3-4 pellets everyday, and they said the fish will eat them in 30 seconds, and if not, i have to remove the Food, is this true??

First of all THANK YOU! I know you posted Last year but I just saw this, thought I knew the basics of how to take care of a betta fish including to be weary of fin rot and scale rot. But you informed me more then my own research told me. Thank you so much! I just got a Female betta and I felt so bad to get her a small cup/tank (seemed cruel) so I got minimum 2.5 gallon tank, with decor, low pressure filter etc. I'm glade to here I did well for her. Thank you for your insight and do not be sorry to offend anyone. People need to deal with facts and other people and if they can't handle it that's not your fault. They just lack in life skills. Good work, keep in up!!

I once got 2 dalmatian molly fish from a petstore. I was only 8 or 9 at the time, so forgive me for my ignorance. I got one male and one female. The employee on the fish isle said that they'd be fine. The male killed the female around midnight 3 days later from starvation. Went back later to get 2 aggressive fish for it to be with, and the employee said that dalmatian molly fish are usually the opposite, that the female was more likely to kill the male. The fish i had did just fine with them, they weren't actually aggressive.
