Betta - Fish Care Tips

Betta Fish Care Tips: Below are the tips to take care of your Betta Fish 1) Water Temperature - To keep your betta hail and hearty, dont forget to provide it with lots of clean and warm water. The aquarium’s temperature should never fall below 74 deg Fahrenheit (23.5 deg Celcius). The ideal temperature should be between 78 and 80 deg Fahrenheit (25.5 to 26.5 deg Celcius). Hence, a heater and a thermometer is a must for your betta tank. 2) Aquarium Space - Provide sufficient space in your aquarium for the betta. Keep your betta in an aquarium of at least 10 gallons (around 38 litres) and ensure that the betta has at least 5 gallons (19 litres) of the tank space dedicated to the betta. This will let your betta or any other fish live healthily in your tank. 3) Water Condition - Perform your weekly 10 - 15 % water changes so that the aquarium always has clean water and the waste not cleared by the water filter will be cleared. When selecting a filter for your betta fish tank ensure that the filter will not produce excessive current in your tank, as this will make it difficult for the betta to swim. 4) Food - Always remember that Betta is a carnivore hence needs a varied and a high protein diet. Most frozen or processed tropical fish foods are appropriate for your Betta. Bettas have small appetites so don’t overfeed them. They should be able to consume all the food within two minutes of feeding. Always remove the leftover food from the tank immediately after the fish stops eating as this could contaminate the water in the tank. 5) Hiding Places - In order to feel comfortable, Betta fish need to have lot of hiding places. Ensure that you provide them with soft cover using live or artificial plants. 6) Companionship - Male Bettas are very territorial toward any fish that they think is another male Betta invading their territory.

londonkxss - 2 years ago
Don't feed the poor betta flakes! They seem fine to you, but they will not thrive in such a small tank. Get at least a 2.5 gallon or if you want to ensure a long life for your betta, grab a 5 gallon. Also, if you have a lot of decor in the 1 gallon, you shouldn't have a 1 gallon in the first place either.

I got a Betta fish! It's my first pet! What does it mean if there are bubbles around the bowl?
Aquarian Vikas
Aquarian Vikas - 3 years ago
it is pretty normal to have bubbles in a betta tank. As bettas breath air from the surface of the water and release breath in water, bubbles get created.

It's not a sign of it being happy at all, they do that regardless. You shouldn't be keeping a betta in a bowl either, has it got filtration and a heater??
Pjoepie Oeguu
Pjoepie Oeguu - 3 years ago
It's a sign it is happy. The males do it for breeding, they get the eggs from the female and put it in a bubble.

how often should you clean your fish tank?
Aquarian Vikas
Aquarian Vikas - 3 years ago
That basically depends on the size of your tank, what filter you have and whether it is a planted or a non planted aquarium.
The bigger the aquarium, the less frequently you need to do water changes and vice versa.

i just got a betta fish the other day, it was in a small cup at petco! Anyways i got it a little starter tank. 1 gall i think. it has no filter or heater. ive noticed my fish goes up for air alot or just stays at the top alot. why is that? i plan on getting her a bigger tank with a filter & heater very soon ! also the water my betta came in was cool so i tried to keep its new water the same as it was when it was in the cup ! any tips on why is goes up alot for air ? is this normal? should i be worried.

The bettas are labyrinth fish. They have to breathe air like us. This is the reason your betta comes up breathes air stays there for a while and if it goes down it breathes out bubbles. Here is a link with few details if you like...

Jada O. Great! I also forgot to mention like buy an ammonia test kit it will tell you exactly how much ammonia there is so basically just change 25% of the water every day until you see the ammonia levels at 0 :)

Isaac Mesa thank u ! xoxo ! i will soon get him a bigger & better cage !

Isaac Mesa - 3 years ago
Jada O. I'm no professional but my betta was doing the same but most probably there is too much ammonia. You can remove it little by little by doing daily 25% water changes. But get the new tank as soon as possible with the filter and heater those will greatly benefit him. I suggest you read up on the nitrogen cycle for a safe betta environment :) hope this helps again I'm not a pro but this is what I know :)

Im so excited, right now I'm saving up money so that I can rescue a betta. These poor fish live in cups. In pet shops I've seen fish even dead in cups. We have to make a change that in pet shops, fish should never be kept in cups. Its animal abuse and cruelty.

+adrian dale No, they aren't very strong swimmers, but you are still wrong. The tank size does not matter as long as it is 2.5 gallons and up. They cannot become stressed, their natural habitats are much larger and they cover it all.

5 gallons could be a started tank for a week or so. It's a big upgrade compared to cups they come in.

Aquarian Vikas - 4 years ago
Well I agree that 5 gallons is too small for a betta but I do not agree about doing half water change every week. Changing half the fish's environment every week will eventually kill it.
