Betta Fish Best Filter? Needed for Aquarium?

http://amzn.to/2B6Csol - I highly advise using this filter in your Betta tanks. It’s the perfect low filter filter. Whisper Flow Filter: http://amzn.to/2B6Csol Question: Should my Male betta tank have a fish filter in it? I don't know if I should have one or not? It seems like maybe it would make the most sense but what do you think? Have you ever lost a fish? Meaning, you go to feed him and he is simply gone? Not hiding, not in the plants or filter....just gone? Aquarium has a lid too. It's like he simply disappeared. Hes not on the floor anywhere possibly? Is there anyone in the house that could have moved him? If not id start taking stuff out carefully hes gotta be in there somwhere...depending on the filter hopfully not in there... I had a gourami wedge itself into a rock once. It was the smallest gaps with a hole in the middle of the rock, I didn't even know there was one until I found him. had a 5 gallon tank completely covered lid. I had mesh where all the holes are. Covered filter. I had a super small pleco and my male Betta. Both vanished. No trace. I have the tank blocked by plexi glass so no one can get to it. It was not even 24 hours since I had last saw them both. I stuck my hand in and moved everything. And cleaned it out. Nothing. I was very confused.... http://bettafishcaretaker.com/filter/ hey flop pretty far when they jump out sadly. Or a pet came along and got them. If you have other pets, watch for laziness and loose bowels today... That will be your answer as betta and really colorful fish seem to really upset a pet's stomache. Yes I have years ago I had a Dicus type school I forget there actual nmaes but anyway, I went one day to feed them an my pink one was just gone , no other pet's in the house either I looked everywhere!! I had no reason to move the tank or stand until we moved 4 years later.... I found the fish completely dried out to the point you could see it was translucent and all i can figure out is he jumped out an with the baseboards there it mummified him... Weird but true story lol I had a molly get under a small pot once. No idea how he did it. The next time I cleaned the tank I found him flat and dead. Mollies aren't the sharpest tools in the shed. Yes. Several yrs ago I had a problem with fish just dissappearing. Couldn't find the fish anywhere. Each day or so, another one, just gone. Not dead, not hiding, nothing. I also had a lid on the tank. One day I found out what was happening. Apparently, my cat was getting on top of the tank and fishing them out from the back where the hob hung. Erm, no assumptions here...but do you have a rat problem? Because I know from first hand experience that they WILL go fishing . es, check and see if there are any holes in the decor, even the smallest hole. If you can fit your pinky in it, he could have gotten stuck in it. I had a fish named Anton who got stuck in a root decor of which had only one small hole. after he disappeared, It took me an entire day to find his body. I had to smash the decor, but it was obvious that he'd already died soon after getting stuck. Unfortunately, even with the loss, it may give you a sense of peace to know where he was. Most often, it's not the owner's fault. It's the company that makes the decor. I did not rest until I found Anton's body. I have a tattoo of him, he was a little walmart fish who had a tumor on his head.

Having a filter doesn't automatically make the water 'wavey'. Also, bettas do not come from small puddles...they come from long bodies of water that do have minimal current.

If there is an air stone in the tank, does the Betta still have to breathe at the surface as much?

How often do you have to do water changes for a 5-10 gallon tank?

blakdust3 - 5 years ago
I think most people should use a filter but i do about a 5% water change every day(scoops some out pour some in takes like 20secs) and have lots of plants, my levels are perfect an I have had happy fish for years.

Betta fish do not come up for air, they can get it through the water like fish if needed, if your water is not oxygenated they will come up.

Bettas have a labyrinth in order to breathe. They always come to the surface for air. I don't think you pay attention to your betta.
Betta Aesthetics
Betta Aesthetics - 4 years ago
They are labyrinth breathers, therefore, they do come up for oxygen no matter how well oxygenated the water is.

+A Rose Grows in Harlem never mine :p i have bubblers anyway and only if they have to, like the water is running low, and usually with males when building nests

Have you had a betta fish? They most certainly do come up for air.

My betta went from a tiny cup in PetSnart, to a 1 gallon, to a 3.5 gallon and now to a 5 gallon. He seemed fine with out a filter, but I hear it's always good to have a filter for betta. What I did was i bought the Tetra Whisper In-Tank Filter, only up to 3 gallons. I used a sponge filter and placed it around the input tube so none of his fins would get sucked in. I then put a filter bag over the filter output on the top. It reduced the current most definitely, but the bubbles coming from the air hose is the only thing creating a current. Its a very light current, he doesn't seem to mind it. But still I think I need to do a little more to reduce the current...

I've heard submersible filters work well for bettas as they don't create too much water current.
You might want to look into one with adjustable speed, if possible, so as to keep it on the lowest setting.
They tend to get stuck to and even sucked up into other kinds of filters :s

I've had a few bettas and they live okay without a filter if they get a water change every week, but can live longer with a filter that's suitable for them.

Males are going to have a lot more fin coverage. If you google image search "female betta fish" and look at images, you will figure it out pretty easily I'm thinking.

Great to hear! Undergravel filters are somewhat dying technology versus what else is out there but if it works for you GREAT
Palmer Fish Q&A
Palmer Fish Q&A - 8 years ago
Yeah that would work but what would be more effective is to just do a small water change every couple of days. Maybe just change like 25% of the water when you do it.

Palmer Fish Q&A - 8 years ago
I would honestly use a small sponge filter if your tank is only 5 gallons. Very very effective and small

Thanks Chris. Love your fish. I have my Betta with an underground filter. I have installed air-control-valves to control the bubbles and disturbance of the surface. This is what works best for me. :)
