It's really simple to take care of them actually. I really enjoy these fish! I would also like to add some disclaimer notes here that some of the stuff is only aimed at total beginners. I do understand that the mail beta fish can be kept with other species of fish.. but as far as beginners I want to keep this totally out of the spectrum because this is not an aspect for beginners to be thinking about. I don't want people killing fish because it is already happening. So consider this guide to be aimed towards only total newbies to keeping Betta fish. Anyway, I don't really have time for all the negative comments that people are sharing here and just ripping me apart.

I was taking pictures the day before yesterday and thought I saw a fin in that hole but it was positioned towards the back and when I looked again I saw nothing. But seeing that a fish is actually in said hole I think it had to have been this fish. Okay he swam out. False alarm I guess. Thank god because idk how I would have gotten him out. I guess he likes to hide there and just happened to be there the other night. His tank is so clean now..just waiting for my tannins to come back. Also did work on my crab tank..and right I'd share their dinner with you tonight. They have river shrimp..left over brine shrimp from my fish..honey..green sand..bee pollen..chia..fresh pear..that goes straight in the sub for my isopods also..dried banana chips..and raw chicken Depends what you mean by spotted pleco lol. But yeah should be fine. I’d just get one gourami. It can work but the ones you listed are the same species, just different color forms, and all of the colorful ones are males. They typically won’t get a long but if it’s a heavily planted tank with lots of natural division it could work to House multiple males. I wouldn’t get just two giant danio though they get rather large for a 55 as far as schooling fish go might make it look a bit crowded. Always trial and error. Works for one doesn't work for the other. If you have a good lfs ask them what trade in policies they have. Happy fish keeping. Oh and plants if you get jungle val or wendtii (spell check) just get one bunch they multiple fast. Also what substrate will you get. Giant danios need a school of at least 4 in my opinion and they most definitely would eat the leopard danios lol giant danios get to 4 inches long and sometimes 6 but most commonly 4 inches. well they are very fun to watch and a 55 is their absolute minimum tank size but if you do decide to get them they are really easy to breed I keep finding fry in my filter 😂 have you used aqua advisor for stocking? It could help tell you how stocked your tank would be with and without the giant danios. They don’t have much of a bio load just they eat small things. No I have no idea what that is. Yea I heard they were really active and great schoolers. Which the kids would enjoy. But if I got those then we wouldn't be able to get the angel fish. Which the kids already said they wanted.

I do not agree that you said males don't get along with other fish it really depends on the male and not trying to be one of those haters but just because your males didn't get along with other fish doesn't mean that all betta males won't get along with other fish and that's that. Just accept you are not always right.

I agree with some of this, disagree with others. I feed my betta mainly blood worms, brine shrimp and yes pellets. They love pellets. I can't get my bettas to eat any kind of "flake" food without vomiting it right back out but I know others who swear by flake formulas. I might just have oddball betta fish. I also swear by a filter. It's true that bettas don't like a lot of current but you can make a baffle on your filter using a sponge. Even so I still change about 10% of my water each week and I've always had great luck with my fish.

Actually there is nothing wrong with pellets like he says. If you get pellets you should think about getting omaga 1 mini color enchanting tropical fish pellets. Keep in mind if you don't have mini pellets you should soak them for 2-3 minutes before feeding them to your betta because you're betta can have trouble digesting the food if it is too hard.

1. 2.5g tank is minimum that most people agree on but bigger is better.
2. Yes, always condition
3. If you want a community tank with male, it's possible but you have to find an easy going one, you can find this out when you're at the store you two bettas next to each other and see if they flare at each other. Also best bet is not a really flashy fish will long flourishing tails.Tetras, Mollys, and small breed plecos are great to keep with bettas. My guess is this guy found the most aggressive betta or tried to keep it with flashy fish.
4. The food is only a problem if you don't clean your tank. Over feeding only causes build up of ammonia from the food rotting. The fish will stop eating when it's full, it's not going to eat itself to death. Good rule of thumb is, however much they will eat in a two minute span which is usually more than 1 pellet...
5. You say they're carnivores (which is true) and then later on go on to say how you feed them peas....Betta like pellets just fine but look for the ones that are made with actual fish and shrimp not fish meal, they are out there.
6. Heater, yes always but, 76-82.
7. If you don't have a filter, chances are you will need to change the water DAILY for a long time. A sponge filter is a great filter for betta and it's also cheap and easy and holds good bacteria. the problem with most filters is the current the filter causes because betta are not good swimmers, this guy is an idiot.
8. 40% ever week is good, if your tank is cycled, something he never talks about and apparently knows nothing about it. You can not get away with never doing a full water change though, you have to do it at least once a month, every 2 month if you're really pushing it.
9. He's basically saying he enjoys making his betta upset and flare, which causes stress because they think it's a rival, this guy is a dick.
10. See #5 says they don't like it but will eat it which goes against what he said about pellet food. "They wont eat it because they don't like it"

But the rest was pretty acurate and + they have tank mates like guppies and goldfish they are ABSOLUTLY FINE AND THEY LOVE IT THERE. Of course in seperate tanks

4. Is wrong. Because they have such a small stomach, Bettas need very small meals more often. Just because they can starve in two weeks is no reason to wait days to feed again. Just keep the meals very small.

Hi I posted this on your website, but it's "awaiting moderation." My betta is getting worse, and I don't have much more time to wait! Here is what I posted:
"I have had my betta since January of this year. His name is Mercutio, and he is a delta tail. He is currently living in a 6.25 gallon tank with a filter. I do weekly partial water changes and monthly full tank changes. I also change the filter once a month. I have been going to school in Illinois and recently returned home to Michigan for the summer. Prior to leaving, Mercutio ripped his fins, so I did daily water changes and added salt to his tank. Since I’ve been home, I can’t seem to get him back to normal. I am currently doing every-other day water changes with salt. This has been going on for a while. I don’t want him to become immune to the salt, but I am not sure what else to use. Every time his fins heal, he tears them again. I don’t know if he is stressed out, or if I am doing something wrong, or if is he is sick. And now he has a spot on his side that looks like he is missing some of his scales. I am not sure how to help him. Any advise?"

Now, the spot is starting to look puffy, and I wonder if it is infected. Do you have any idea what I should do? A friend of mine thought it was ick, but it's not little dots everywhere. It's one huge spot on his side that won't get better.

All of his plants are silk. After a couple of trips to petco, I learned that the spot on his side is a tumor. It's quite big now, but as far as I know, there is not a way to treat it. He is still eating and swimming. I am trying to maintain his quality of life. I am guessing he keeps ripping his fins because of stress from the tumor.
Jillian Leigh
Jillian Leigh - 5 years ago
I know this is an old post and you may figured something out but some betta tail nip (as in they bite their own tails) and nothing you can really do about it. Other option is, do you have any plastic plants in the tank? He could be ripping his tail on them.

They don't live in "puddles", they are tropical fish that live in rice patty fields in Thailand (which are heated from the sun) so they do need 75-82 degree water to live long healthy lives. I don't agree with the 20 gallon tanks but they do need a minimum of 2.5 gallons and no less. And btw, if you were "offended" by HIS video, why did you even watch it? Who gets offended by watching a video on how to care about a fish? lol apparently you

Overfeeding is my biggest fear! Oh wow, I've been somewhat following the directions on the pellets packaging, It says to feed 3-10 pellets up to 3 times daily based on the size of the bettas. Based on that, I've been feeding mine 3-4 pellets once a day. A few times a week, I'll feed the pellets in the morning (instead of lunchtime like I normally do) and give them a couple of bloodworms in the evenings. I wasn't sure how much to feed them, but they seem to be healthy and doing well. Should I cut back to one pellet a day? Or just stick to what's been working for them? Do you use frozen peas after you cook them...or can peas? I'm not sure. Also, if you're only taking out a small part of the water, how often do you do it? I was planning on changing the water 100% once a month (mine will be a filtered tank)...but I'm guessing I shouldn't ever change it 100%? I'm still learning a lot about betta fish, so I"m sorry for all the questions but I'm trying to do everything right.

I'd recommend feeding 4 pellets a day. Depending on the size, I have omega one betta buffet pellets. I feed two pellets in the morning and two at night. I've never had a problem with it! Just do what works best for them. I use frozen peas and just heat them in the microwave (make sure they aren't too hot) and remove the outside hard part. This is great for fish who are constipated. It'll get things moving for them quite quickly. Don't change 100% of the water. It can remove beneficial bacterias that the fish needs. Getting an aquarium gravel vacuum will become your best friend when it comes to water changes. Only change about 25% of the water every week. Hope this helps!

+Salem Ross Not lucky, its a Science  experiment. that's how it started at least. I even have a baby female in the tank. females in the tank don't mind the baby. The male sleeps with her. protects the baby. I sneak on them at night. during the night. The male and baby female sleeps together. he seems protective of her I always make sure the baby eats. I make sure they have enough food. It seems they start to become aggressive if I skip a day. They also tend to over eat because they want to make sure they have enough food for themselves. Which is understandable. From my research, I found they are really social. males need to be kept apart, but females aren't as aggressive. they seem to be a family. almost a perfect happy family. I recreated their environment. I have the same plants, food, Lilly pads. It's mostly plants. They also live great with Cory catfish. everything I've been seeing online Does not explain what they need. I've had African Frogs in the tank. I've had at least 8 total, four at a time, as this was recommended online. They would all start to die. Luckily I stopped my experiment. I was lucky enough to have petco take them back in "friends with the management". I replaced all the frogs with Cory catfish. Albino, and a darker version of it, that I don't know much about name wise. the tank is in good working order. All I know is that this tank is A LOT more fun to watch than your average fish tank. being that I've owned just about every species of fish at Petco " Exaggeration " If anyone has any questions for me please let me know. I am planning on posting a video of my tank once I have spare time. If you want subscribe to my channel so you don't miss out. :)

You are wrong on several points. First off, you don't really want to use a mirror or two males seeing each other for the aggressive fin behavior. That causes their bodies to release hormones and chemicals that if overdone will kill them. That is a natural behavior but only at times and in nature males are territorial and use this behavior to defend their territory. Secondly, they can be housed with other fish and this is where your ineraction and socialism comes into play. Platys, Mollys, guppies are decent tank mates, even gouramies. in the wild they live in dirty, tanic water. Sometimes even shallow water. Swimming area not depth is the key..And just saying but it might help if you learn to pronounce words correctly if you are going to call yourself an expert and a Betta nerd.

If it doesn't eat bloodworms, that may just be its preference. Luckily, bloodworms are a treat and do not need to be used. Also, make sure to only feed the fish 4 pellets a day max, bettas will over eat.

my male betta is aggressive. a real hyper bully. i had to break and put him with my female bristlenose pleco. and my kuhlie loach after tons of research and hours of watching and ensuring that all is good. My betta pays no attention to my pleco thats the same size as him. I've owned bettas for years and always kept them alone. But when you only have so much money and want the best living conditions for your fish,you have to educate yourself totally. obviously bettas in the wild can live in harmony with other fish.

Goblin Engineer
Goblin Engineer - 5 years ago
Also, are the dividers clear? If they are then either get some aquarium background and get that on, or if they are the mesh kind of dividers, try to find a load of Java Moss, your LFS (local fish store) could give you some if they have a lot, or try ebay, craigslist and reddit.com/r/aquaswap. If you just search up on YouTube "How to make a Java Moss Wall" then there should be a good video from cloud9aquariums on how to do it. The reason you want the Bettas to not see each other is because they will start flaring up, which everynow and again is good for them to flare, but if they can constantly see another male Betta then they'll be constantly flaring and is pretty stressful for them.

+Rebecca Barowsky Is that a 20 Long or 20 litres, if its the litre option then thats 5 litres per betta and that is not enough. Ime Bettas do best with at least 20l each. 20l each. Work on that first. Easy to maintain plants are Java Fern, Java Moss and crypts. The Java Fern needs to be planted with the rhizome above the substrate. Lighting wise you want about 2 watts per gallon (4L). No light at night either.

Rubber Duck
Rubber Duck - 5 years ago
+opticalriot That's... not really why. Bettas many years ago were bred with aggression in mind, thus they see a Betta, even a female, or a fish that looks similar they will attack it. Put that together with Bettas been extremely territorial then most of the time it is safer and easier to keep them on their own, or with some cory-cats if your tank is big enough.


Just to add the stomach of the average Betta is the size of their eye, so they don't eat much, certainly nothing as large as a fish.

Emily p3nnycraft
Emily p3nnycraft - 5 years ago
+meowrisaaa That's partially accurate. Betta fish do breathe with their gills primarily, but their labyrinth organ (the thing that helps them breathe air) is a backup in case they get trapped in a low-oxygen environment like a stagnant puddle. In order for a Betta to stay healthy it routinely uses the labyrinth organ and it's gills so it must be given access to both dissolved oxygen and a water surface.


The reason they don't like "ripples" (more accurately a strong water current) is because they're not very good swimmers. Partially due to their natural habitat–which was already mentioned–and partially due to the fact that Betta Splendens have been bred by humans for large decorative fins which are more for looks than actual swimming ability.
meowrisaaa

they live in very still water aka rice paddies. thats why they breathe from the surface, the lack of water movement prevent enough oxygen from being in the water so they dpnt really breathe with their gills, they have a lung like organ

Well, you're not exactly right in a few points. Not all bettas will stop once they are full, some will continue to eat as much as possible if you provide them with enough food. Not all males will be aggressive towards other fish, nor will they attack another male. As long as they are exposed to other fish and get used to other fish, including bettas, they will be fine. Bettas live in rice paddies, which can be very muddy. That being said, bettas enjoy dried almond leaves at the bottom of the tank because it makes the water a brownish tint which helps keep the water free of diseases.

You are close to an expert, but not quite. For one thing male bettas can be with other fish, however two male Bettas can not be in the same tank (you covered that). Some good tank mates are Ghost Shrimp, Mystery Snails, Cory Catfish, African Dwarf Frogs, POSSIBLY Guppies (for Guppies you've gotta be careful, Guppies look similar to Bettas in color and tail size), maybe Neon Tetras. Female Bettas can be together though. I have 7 females in a 30 gallon tank together. Pellets aren't crap, they can actually be very nutritious. Now I wouldn't consider myself as an expert either, I only started getting Betta fish a year ago; but I did my research and watched videos on you tube. Anyways this was a good video.
TwentyThreeKeys
TwentyThreeKeys - 5 years ago
Yup. Flakes work good too. I do a varied diet. That means I feed my Bettas flakes and pellets, and once a week 1 bloodworm for each. When feeding Bettas bloodworms you've got to be careful not to give too many! If you feed a Betta too many bloodworms it could cause bloating. My first Betta I tried feeding him a bloodworm and it caused bloating. It really depends on the personality of your fish on what type of food it likes. In short, yes flakes are good for your Betta! =) As in my previous comment, in no stretch am I an expert yet! Owning something or trying something new is a learning experience. I'm still learning much about owning the beautiful Betta! Anyways, I am happy to help! =D

Could I put two of them in a 55 gallon? (two males and Ik they'll fight but since they'll have there room could they live together possibly?) with a chocolate pleco with a shrimp and can you feed betas mosquito larva?
Dire Doe
Dire Doe - 6 years ago
+Gabriella Davis Two males in a tank WILL fight. They are incredibly territorial, and even in a 55 gallon tank they'll end up tearing each other apart. If you really want to keep two males, look up fish tank dividers, and make sure they can't see each other. You'll be essentially dividing your 55G tank into two 22.5G tanks.

At that size you can add a couple companion fish - they tend to get along well with freshwater snails (like Mystery Snails) and Corys, but they do have differing personalities. Some get along well with other fish, others don't.

Sometimes betta fish change colours and it will probably be okay. Just look out for white spot or turning black at the edges of his fins. Also just check every once and a while to check his behaviours "are normal - he's moving around the tank and eating (make sure not to over feed). Good luck!

Hi, i just got a betta yesterday together with a new tank that is 9 Litre big. There are gravels, fake plant, heater, filter, pellets, water starter and water conditioner that comes with the tank. I set the temperature to 26°C and turned on the filter/pump. The betta was swimming around yesterday but today, he is just staying near the surface of the water and being really still. I offered pellet this morning but he didnt take any. I'll get fresh food for him but I'm not sure what else I can do and what's happening, please advise, thanks!

But my point is if you know how to take care of fish great but don't try to act like no it all of someone is Doug it wrong ..

A filter is important to develop beneficial bacteria for your bettas, or any aquarium fish for that matter. Even if you do water changes frequently it is still crucial to have a filter to have that biological filtration.

You can feed Bettas pellets and they will still like it to a degree. Pellets may not look nice to you in a carnivore's perspective but some of them ( Hikari, NLS) have a bunch of good, beneficial nutrients for the fish. If i had to feed my bettas or carnivores fish, i would give them a HUGE variety of food like bloodworms , tubiflex etc. 
Also 90% water changes are fine, unless, you use a water buffer to treat your water. if you do, they may have not adjusted to your water, if you don't and your fish are fine, they should be fine

I personally wouldn't recommend putting a mirror up to the tank because flaring like they do when they see a mirror can stress the betta out and possibly tear its beard. Personally, I only do this occasionally to exercise them, but after that, it could be harmful to the fish. No disrespect to Chris Aquariumzoid, but this is just what I have learned after 7+ years of caring for and breeding bettas

First of all, try buying a 5 gallon tank so the betta fish can have a little more space. Then, do you have at least 1-2 decor so the betta can entertain theirselves. And finally, water change. When did you last change your betta's water?

Avery Stephens- Da Fightn' Fish
Avery Stephens- Da Fightn' Fish - 6 years ago
+asap_swag Yes. in most cases. Multiple females may live together. however, also in most cases, only one male can be in a tank. Males cant be housed with females because males will harass females to death. However, like all animals with a fair amount of sentience, their natures vary. You may get a betta that tolerates the company of other males. There're always exceptions. the're just hard to find.
Dakota The Wolf
Dakota The Wolf - 6 years ago
I do find that you're not an expert. Close, but not quite.

90% changes are okay, lots don't recommend it, but I do weekly 100% changes for 6 of my 9 tanks. My fish are wonderfully healthy and have never had diseases [can't say the same for the tanks I haven't done 100%s on).

Also, Betta fish are carnivores. The pea trick originates from goldfish, and will damage their organs as it will have a harder time processing it.

I do find you're too opinionated and somewhat arrogant. You're not 'Betta God' or anything, lots of people, including myself, are more educated. Also, pellets aren't crap. There's many nutritious and good pellets out there that Bettas love. Omega One and NLS are wonderful brands.

+Dakota The Wolf I agree with you, and he said that bettas or siamese fighting fish cant get along with other fish but I think as long as its not another betta and there are plenty of places for them to hide they will be fine and best if you put the betta tank next to the other fish tank to see how they will react. I own 1 half-moon double tail male in a 1.5 gallon tank, another in a .5 gallon, a rose petal male I just put in an old small animal totem because I'm lazy and I was broke, and 2 goldfish in a 1 gal tank, I put them next to each other they were fine, if you want to put a betta tank next to an other you should put a piece of cardstock paper or something next to another so they don't fight.

You just need to LOOK. but, he did die earlier. But that is because he was a little sick in his cup, but, he would get better. But, he died 3 weeks after. I treated him well, he had protein packed food, 77 degree water. A penguin filter. Which is great by the way, a ten gal. Tank. He was well, ALSO, DONT GET PISSED OR AGRIVATED BY OTHER PEOPLE DOING THE RIGHT THING. I DID THE RIGHT THING FOR MY FISH. BUT HE DIED. IT IS NATURAL. IDIOT IDIOT IDIOT.
Alen Selimovic

My brothers betta fish keeps on going on the top of the tank,.
Emmit Stewart
Emmit Stewart - 6 years ago
+Alen Selimovic This is because of one of the neatest things about Bettas.  Bettas belong to group of fishes that have an organ called a labyrinth.  The labyrinth is basically a cavity in their heads.  Labyrinth fish store air in the labyrinth and thus can live without water passing over their gills.  In nature, this means that if the pool or puddle in which they live dries up, they can flop, wiggle, or crawl across the mud to another pool which still holds water.  I once had a betta who had fallen into a puddle of water only a quarter inch deep.  When the side which was up began to dry out, she would turn over and wet it, then turn over again when the side that now was up began to dry out.  As long as she could keep her skin wet, she could survive because of the air stored in her labyrinth.  I don't know how long she had been laying there, but when I immediately put her back in her tank, she swam off like nothing had happened and went on to live a normal life span.When your betta goes to the water surface, he us refilling his labyrinth.  You will notice that he will take a couple of gulps of air, then quickly turn and duck back down.  This is not necessarily because he doesn't like the tank or water, although this is the mechanism that let's him survive in small or dirty tanks for a while, but not long, It's because his instinct is to keep his labyrinth filled with fresh air.

This was a very interesting video. Needless to say (I'm sure) when I first started owning Betas as a 10 year old, the fish store told me the OPPOSITE of most of this info. It seemed counter intuitive to me even at 10 so I did it MY way... Mind you this was still several years before you could just hop online and have access to any info at your fingertips. Things you said about constant water changes, over feeding, water temp, etc... These were all things I just instinctively did right and I had one little guy (I had him trained to jump for his food, as you mentioned) that lived just shy of 7 years. Hearing you say all of these care steps, was wonderful. It felt like official validation that I was doing things right all along. I have been called obsessive about my beta care by others who felt cleaning the tank once every four months was sufficient so long as they cleaned the entire thing, and that I was "spoiling" my fish by giving them bloodworms at each meal rather than the pellets which they brightly refused to eat! Lol! I'll admit I DID find out the hard way that male betas won't tank well with other fish..... No matter what the blasted fish store says. I learned interesting bits in this video too. Had no idea about the peas! Very happy to have found this video, and as I'm sure there is still tons to learn, I'm off to your site too. Thank you!

if the beta fick don´t have a water surface that has smal waves they can´t breathe. because they don´t only breathe from the surface. so they need some air in the water, and you get air in your water by having a moving surface.

I have never owned a fish before but I had my betta a 4.5 gallon tank for about 4 days on his own before I got him a corydoras as a tank mate. They were both fine apart for the first 24 hours as they were getting used to each other and in the space of 1 day I had taught my betta to jump like 1 cm out of the water and grab its food off my finger. He was the best fish. On the 2t7h of December he sadly passed away overnight from a high level of ammonia in the water which we were unaware of. I had a filter two live plants and was putting drops to prevent ammonia along with two water changes in the space of the 11 days I had him, but I guess it wasn't enough.

One thing that wasn't mentioned is water PH.  Make sure you test the PH bc if it's too alkaline, the fish will become lethargic and not be able to breathe properly and you don't want it too acidic either.  I have just experienced this myself for the first time with my 3+ yr old Betta.  I am now adjusting the PH to bring down the extreme alkalinity.  Also, I have a 3 gallon tank and my fish is very happy.  I have a small Tetra air filter that works well and I feed him the Betta pellets and he likes them also and have a small heater for the tank.

I "Adopted" a male betta from a friend who was "waiting for him to die" and didn't feed him for other a month and had him in about 4 inches of water. I brought him home and put him in my 25 Gallon tank with some bottom cats and a feeder goldfish that I also rescued from dying and they got along amazingly!! Until my Goldfish decided he was top dog and broke his spine. I miss him so much! I still have my goldfish and cats and he goldfish has grown about 10-12x his original size!!!!

 Thanks, Sarah.  I did hours of researches and decided to cycle the tank with pure ammonia.  I'd love to do it with plants, but I need to "speed up" the process a little since I'm upgrading his home from a 3-gallons to a 10-gallons tank.  Thanks for the link! 
Sarah Richards
Sarah Richards - 6 years ago
It's really not something that can be learned from a short video, however your first step should be the purchase of freshwater test kits for ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate.  Those are the three things you need to know the levels of in order to ascertain the stage your tank is at and when it is fully cycled.  There are several ways to cycle a tank (fish-in, fish-less, silent-cycle, etc.) so do a bit of research.  Silent cycling with plants is what I would personally recommend, but that may not suit your situation.  If you wish to read about that, here is a link to an article;  http://www.aquahobby.com/articles/e_silent_cycling.php

Also peaceful bottom feeders like coreydora's, kuhli loaches, etc haven't ever cared about my bettas when put in an appropriately sized tank.  guppies don't work, danio's rarely work, barbs are bad... because they eat the betta not because of the betta...Plus the really aggressive member of the betta family is the female, in my experience...

I had a betta for 7 years in a 3 gallon container. The container was a sweet set up with bamboo shoots and grasses. I really like Bettas. They can live long lives if , like you are trying to explain how to take care of them. I get seriously pissed off when I see half dead bettas in nasty water at Wal-Mart and many other places.
I have a rescued Betta now that's doing very well. When I 1st got him he didn't have any color at all. 3 weeks later he is starting to look red. :) He has some fin wilt on the top fin and bottom. Sometimes he scraps up against the bamboo in his tank around the gill section but shows no others signs of permanent damage. He is hungry all the time but I think that's because he was nearly dead when I saved him. He could be trying to catch up.

Its white but show some signs of color and is getting strong enough to eat tiny fish flakes.

I'm starting to wonder if some Betta fish just prefer different environments. Being an Asian American, I was brought up to raise the fish in these large glass jars my mother would have around the house. I feed them pellets and I changed their water regularly. My room was fairly hot cause it faced the sun it was always fairly tropical, and they all lived to old age. So now I'm quite confused on what is considered "preferred treatment" for these fish.
Walter Knight
Walter Knight - 7 years ago
I feed New Life Spectrum Betta Formula one day. Frozen blood worms the next.

You do not treat other tropical fish like gold fish (small bowel, no heater, no filter) why treat a Betta like a carp? I use ten gallon tank, under gravel filter. Silk plants, heater. Just like a real tropical fish. Surprise he is a real tropical fish.

I am glad your over crowded small vase betta lived a year or two. Would he still be alive today if you treated him mo-betta.

Hi Chris -- According to the symptoms listed on the link our betta fish is sick. We've decided to do 50% water changes daily to see if that helps improve his health, however do you have any other recommendations for treating him?  Thanks! http://www.wikihow.com/Tell-if-a-Betta-Fish-Is-Sick
Sarah Richards
Sarah Richards - 7 years ago
More details are needed for anyone to offer real help.  The water changes for now are a good starting place, especially with Bettas.  Raising the temperature might help or hurt depending on the problem.  Salt baths sometimes seem effective as a remedy, but often the fish may have recovered as well without them so they may get too much credit.  Without knowing exactly what is wrong most treatments are likely to do much more harm than good.  Keep the fish clean, fed if it will eat, and warm enough to digest food effectively.  Try to identify the specific problem -  water quality, bacteria, fungus, or parasite before changing or doing much else.  Good luck with your fish.

i think this guy is a great owner but i think maybe people are taking what he says too seriously. we need to remember that there is no ONE  right way to care for any pet. this is his way and it seems like a great way, but its not the only way to have a happy betta fish. for instance, i had a betta named Meekish (she recently passed away at over 4 years old ) and i think she was very happy, even tho i did a very different care routine than he does. i fed her 3-4 pellets a day 5 times a week, 1 day a week she would get bloodworms, and she fasted one day a week. (sometimes i would skip the fast for a week, so it was more like 3 fasting days a month) she lived in a 2 and a half gallon tank with some plants and minimal gravel (just takes up space imo) and got regular water changes. she knew a couple tricks (i taught her 'come' and 'jump', she would eat food off my finger. she would also kind of play tag, she would chase my finger when i pointed from outside the tank, then 'run away' when my finger came towards her lol) and she never ONCE got sick, never had ick, bloating, she was always really healthy (until the last week or so of her life, but it was old age not sickness. she had been slowing down for a while :/). anyway, i guess my long winded point is, i think this guy put this video up to help people and their bettas, not make them argue. maybe instead of the anger we could all put helpful tips, and inspire each other to try new awesome things for our bettas? just a thought :)

Most of what you said is right BUT, feeding them brine shrimp and bloodworms is a horrible diet. They are better as a once a week kind of treat. Betta pellets contain everything they need. Betta pellets should be their main food.
Sarah Richards
Sarah Richards - 7 years ago
Baby freshwater angelfish can be successfully raised from free-swimming fry when they first begin to eat all the way to apparently healthy breeding adults on nothing but brine shrimp.  I don't know if it's been tried with Bettas, (newly hatched betta fry are initially too small for baby brine shrimp) but I suspect the results would be similar. I don't know how you came to the conclusion that brine shrimp are a "horrible diet" but the facts tell a far different story.  I wouldn't attempt to raise any species of fish on nothing but betta pellets.

I disagree but I also have the opportunity to get mosquito larva and live worms (which I know for a fact they will eat and it wont harm the tank). and when it gets cooler I do give them brine shrimp never tubifix or blood worms anymore though.

A betta will no die just because it flares. However, there is such a thing as too much. The advice is for 10 to 15 minutes. Mo-betta runs from his reflection.

That is the dumbest myth ever about this fish.  Both male and female Bettas instinctively flare, and for many reasons, - it is neither "stressful" nor bad for their health.  A breeding pair will literally flare at each other often for DAYS almost nonstop - they get tired, but neither keels over dead.  If people would stop keeping them in flower vases and bowls and treat them like a real fish these stupid internet "facts" might DIE off as they should.  Or did you actually mean DYE, as in to chemically change the color of something?  Technically, Bettas do sometimes change color a bit when excited, so perhaps you aren't illiterate and just regurgitating nonsense.....

+Kimi L.  I do agree that ADF and Bettas seem to more or less tolerate each other and I have on occasion housed a male Plakat (short finned) betta with five dwarf frogs in a heavily planted tank without issue.  Personally, I won't risk a finned male with them however.  AD frogs are voracious feeders that rely more on smell than sight and often grab each others limbs or faces when food is in the tank. It isn't hard to imagine one getting a mouthful of caudal or anal fin and turning a Halfmoon into a Crowntail in about two seconds.

I have a male betta and 3 African dwarf frogs in my tank.  When I first put them together he would  get close to look at them but they get along fine.  One of the frogs even pushes off him when moving around.  Don't know if it will work for anyone else, but all is well here. 
Sarah Richards
Sarah Richards - 7 years ago
Some Bettas do and some don't.  The only way to know is to try one or two, but be prepared to re-home the snails if your Betta harasses them.  The Betta is not "playing" with the snail as some people seem to think.  Snails eat fish eggs and  male Bettas are very protective of their territory in anticipation of spawning (though they may never get the chance they still blow a nest) and many will wisely try to drive any snails away.  The snail can't leave, so the fish may end up killing it outright or preventing it from feeding.  Smaller snails like Malaysian Trumpets are often fine because they burrow in the substrate during the day eating excess food and detritus (not fish waste, no snail eats waste) emerging at night to feed on algae. They are a hardy and fairly beneficial snail.  Nerite snails can be tried if algae is the main issue.  'Mystery snails' are the ones most often attacked and may have their antenna bit off or starve to death.  Adding a mystery snail is the same as adding another fish, they have huge appetites and create comparable waste of their own.

+WolfSpirit127 Unlike Ms Mesick, I do feel it's worth it. 
  Apparently I failed to clarify what I wanted to say in my previous comment.  
 I tried to say I never quote nor do I see any point in arbitrary "minimums" be it 5 gallons, 2.5 gal., 1 gal., or any other.  I feel anyone with the knowledge to do so can keep their betta(s) in whatever size tank suits their needs.
 As for "reading their minds"  I pointed out that I do not know if a Betta actually experiences anything resembling human emotions of distress or boredom in small containers if the water quality is maintained.  My guess would be they most likely do not, since breeders jar bettas at young and critical stages and they do well.
I don't find it difficult to tell what foods a fish likes best or doesn't like however, most are not subtle about food preferences.

+Sarah Richards I do in fact understand what you are saying, and I stated that a while ago, though now I know how small it actually is. No, I don't support small tanks, and I don't believe anyone should have a tank any smaller than 5 gallons. You missed the part where I said I don't disagree with you, meaning I understand you and I agree. Along this I also said I do not support 2.5 gallons! I don't so please know that. You misunderstood me when I said, "We can't speak for the fish." What I meant by that was that we can't read their minds and know what kinds of foods are their favorite or what kinds they absolutely hate, though we all should know they do not appreciate small tank sizes or roots, which is a common myth people follow. I'm sorry for taking your comment as condescending, it just flew that way as I read it. But yes I in fact do understand what you're saying, and I have nothing against your knowledge, for it's all very true. When I said "2.5 gallons is the smallest recommended," I didn't really mean recommended by me, but that was also when I thought about space, but when you think of it that way, it's stupid to have any pet if you don't have space for it. Listen please, I AGREE with you, and I very much understand what you're saying. Do you understand what I'm trying to say now?
Sarah Richards
Sarah Richards - 7 years ago
+WolfSpirit127 "The smallest acceptable tank for a betta fish is 2.5g, so I'd highly recommend that instead of a 1 gallon." I'm sorry, but that was your statement.  I think most would interpret that as in your opinion a 2.5 gallon is both recommended and acceptable. 
I'm not being condescending, you just don't actually understand what I'm saying at all.  I do appreciate that you are willing to try however.
 My point here is that too much emphasis is put on tank size, which really doesn't matter since with a good basic knowledge of fish keeping anyone can keep a Betta alive and healthy in virtually any size tank.  I honestly don't know if a Betta in a small container experiences anything resembling boredom or unhappiness if the water quality is good.  Most aquarists don't elect to keep Bettas in small tanks mainly because a fish in only a gallon or two of water requires extra maintenance and is pretty uninteresting in return.  Those in the hobby are usually fascinated by fish and their behaviors and know the more room you can give them the more naturally they behave.  Getting the largest tanks possible / affordable is usually the goal. 
 Conversely, potential Betta owners are always interested in knowing "the smallest acceptable tank size" - undoubtedly the most frequently asked and answered question about this fish.  I never answer that question and don't know why anyone else does.  The question is somewhat understandable in regards to large fish like Oscars or Discus, but just plain ignorant and sad when asked about a fish as small as a Betta. 
 If someone can't be bothered learning the basics of maintaining tropical fish before purchasing one, the difference between 1 gallon or 2.5 gallon is ultimately meaningless since the fish is not likely to do well.  It may survive a bit longer in the greater water volume, but I don't necessarily see that as a plus for the fish. 
I know many folks love their Bettas.  They spend money on special food, toys, water conditioners, and god knows what else.  Their Bettas have names.  None of this popularity has done Bettas a damn bit of good.  Fish don't need names and people inclined to give fish names often have very little idea what they really do need.

+Sarah Richards Nothing is hard to understand! I know what you are saying, okay? I don't see why you must be so condescending. If a five or ten gallon tank isn't big enough, then nothing is. I didn't say a 2.5 was really acceptable, because it isn't in my opinion.

What is so hard to understand?   The mass mistreatment of this species is directly the result of your type of attitude and justification, namely: even if you aren't willing or "can't" do it right, a Betta is one fish that will survive in substandard conditions so if you want one go ahead and buy one for your desk or your kid's dresser anyway.

If by "balanced" you mean cycled, you are wrong.  Any size tank can be cycled, there is no 5 gallon limit.  Most people buying Bettas simply don't bother learning how or doing it.  Also, some believe fish are better off in uncycled tanks with frequent water changes, and in some cases that is true.  Water is naturally full of bacteria which is necessary and not a problem.  Uncycled tanks build up ammonia and/or nitrites, not bacteria.

+Sarah Richards I did not say a one gallon tank is okay. I'm just saying if you don't have a ton of space, the smallest you can get is 2.5, and if you look at pictures, it's a bit bigger. But I'm not saying that it's a good home for your betta. It's just the minimum size, but I wouldn't recommend it. I recommend 5 gallon and up and nothing smaller, but I'm aware people are limited on space, which is why I said 2.5 gallon is the smallest that most would recommend. I appreciate that your trying to educate me, but there's honestly no need for the rant or condescension. I understand what betta fish like and don't like, and I know they wouldn't appreciate a 2.5 gallon tank very much, but any smaller wouldn't be best either.

No, it's exactly the equivalent of a BETTA FISH living in a one gallon container all it's life.  You cannot compare humans to a fish anymore than you can compare a fish to spotted hyenas - they are two completely different species that experience and relate to their environment in completely different ways. 
 If a one gallon is a "small car" then your smallest acceptable  2.5 gallon is what, a minivan at best?  Does that sound like a huge improvement to you?  It only makes a five gallon maybe a stretch limo?  Want to live your entire life in a limo?  What happened to it being like a person living in a closet or in a port-a-potty?
   Making up new ones doesn't make it any less silly, less wildly anthropomorphic or even remotely accurate. 
BTW- who exactly puts out these "smallest acceptable" container size figures for Bettas anyway?  How did they arrive at 2.5 gal. and what was the criteria for establishing that as the the minimum size "acceptable"?  Acceptable to who? Why?  What happens differently to the fish in 2 gallons of water?  I've heard everything from .5 to 20 gallons quoted as the "absolute minimum for Bettas" - they can't all be correct. 
WolfSpirit127
WolfSpirit127 - 7 years ago
Anything smaller than 2.5 gallons is too small. A common myth is that a bubble next indicates happiness, which has no truth to it at all. A bubble nest does not indicate any sign of joy or happiness. They make this nest by instinctual behavior and nothing more. A one gallon tank is the equivalent of a person living in a small car for their entire life. The smallest acceptable tank for a betta fish is 2.5g, so I'd highly recommend that instead of a 1 gallon.

Animal Planets pet care page is just plain wrong, and by "we" your psychology class was referring to HUMAN BEINGS not fish.  You need to take another basic course about the dangers and errors inherent in anthropomorphic thinking and conclusions.  If  Animal Planet were correct, then male bettas are basically "comfortable, healthy and happy" in the tiniest of crud filled containers since breeding age males will routinely blow nests in them.  Fish are strongly driven to reproduce which often takes precedence over survival of the individual, species survival is dependent upon it.
 BTW - since you are obviously confused, Animal Planet is an ENTERTAINMENT CORPORATION not an institute of higher learning.

Zebra Danios are a very active fish, Betta Splendens most definitely are not.  In a well planted still water tank with plenty of surface vegetation a normal Betta will spend a great deal of time "at the top doing nothing" - a completely  normal behavior for the species which has absolutely nothing to do with water quality or 'happiness'.    
Sarah Richards
Sarah Richards - 7 years ago
Blowing a bubblenest indicates breeding status and nothing more. Breeding age males blow nests - period.  It does not mean a Betta is "happy" or that the tank is large enough.

Thank you so much for being so kind in your reply. Every time someone replies to me about beta fish care they act like I'm the stupidest girl in the world or just in a rude or condescending manner. But I totally agree with you. Those comments I said about pellets before was just... I don't know. I know they aren't very good for bettas in general. I just thought that as long as they don't kill the fish, it is OK to feed it to them, though they aren't the best diet, which I understand.

+WolfSpirit127 There are many options to waht to feed your betta of which many you can grow yourself ina tiny tub or plastic bottle. And you should always rince your blodoworms before feeding them to rince of that bacteria. PLus I totalyl agree pellets for betta are a money buisness thing, not a healthy food source for your fish.
Also you shoudl feed your fish at least 3 different types of foods, such as Brine shrimp, Boodworms, Mosquito Larvae, Maggots, Microworms, White worms, Fruit Flies, Cooked Egg Yolk, Beef Heart, Rinced and chopped Worms from your composte... the list is never ending. THe first sugestions are teh most common one and can be found in a local fish shop in Frozen version easily. The thing they all share is that they are well balanced food that your betta would catch and eat in the wild and as long as you do NOT overfeed your betta wont get constipated from this typ of food sources.
Yes constipaton happens some time on Bloodworms due to overfeeding, give your betta one day without food after it had a bloodworm and you will lower teh risk of constipation, same goes for very rich food as Beef Heart or other more fatty foods.

Hi, there really is no one site or book I can recommend.  If you haven't any previous experience with tropical fish the best place to start would be to learn about the nitrogen cycle.  Since you were unexpectedly gifted this fish you will at least for a while have to maintain it in an uncycled tank. That just means changing the water all the time, you can't really do it too often as long as you match PH and temp.  After researching the pros and cons you can decide whether you wish to keep the fish in a cycled or uncycled aquarium.  That decision will have a bearing on the size tank you use as well as whether you add other inhabitants.  Bettas require warm relatively still water, surface plants (live or artificial) to rest on, and a carnivorous diet.  In my opinion, male Bettas are best kept by themselves.  Their tendency to interact with other fish or snails is not because they consider them 'friends' as many like to think.  Male bettas try to set up a small territory where they can blow a nest and wait for a female.  They attempt to drive away other fish and snails since both will eat the eggs. The inherited strength of the instinct is probably why some male bettas actually kill snails and/or other fish outright while others only chase or "play" with them.  Either way, he really doesn't want them around. 
Good luck with your fish.  As I have said, read all you can on tropical fish keeping in general.  Don't get too caught up in all the Betta "facts" you may hear - many of them are nonsense.  Bettas are tropical fish with a couple of specific preferences like any species will have.  Something doesn't have to be labeled 'for bettas' to use it, any tropical fish products are generally fine.  Online Betta forums are IMO easily the worst sources of information - I would steer clear at least at first.

We just received one, from a wedding centerpiece, of all places. I wasn't planning on having one, but my kids were interested so we accepted. The children will help, but I will be the one doing most of the caretaking. I am definitely not one of those pet owners that just goes with the cheapest, easiest solution. My ferrets and my dog eat a raw diet. I'm saying this to point out that although I didn't research before acquiring the pet, I am willing to do the research and do it right. I hope you get this message.

+Sarah Richards I'm not saying it's the best diet, but betta pellets are clearly made for betta fish. I wasn't saying peas should be their daily diet either, though it's good to feed them one maybe here and there if they have any issues or just for a treat. And there's not a lot of things wrong with the pellets, actually. The longest I've had a betta fish was for four years and he was perfectly fine and didn't mind eating pellets. Now, all those live changes and stuff doesn't have to be from the pellet. Many things can cause that, aside from pellets. But we can't speak for the fish, for we don't really know how they're feeling about the foods we give them. But I see where you're going, and I must agree that pellets aren't the best diet for them, but it's one of the only choices we have to feed them. Blood worms shouldn't be feed to them every single day on a daily basis, they're more like a treat, but it can also clog their system depending. It's happened before. Peas are more just to help their digestion I guess. Now I have a feeling that once you see or read this comment you're going to rant at me because that's what everyone's been doing lately. Now before you do, read my comment and know that I'm not disagreeing with you, and I understand what you're saying. It's just that there aren't many food choices for betta fish, and it's understandable if they hate it to death. But the pellets I buy are clearly made for betta fish (It's called "Betta Bits"). I read the ones I buy contain of shrimp, and squid and it's fortified to support fish health. *shrug* All I'm saying is that it's safe enough, I guess. If you're going to rant at me, then don't, please. For it would be unnecessary.

I'm curious as to who you think has done any valid research on the long term effects on bettas of feeding pellets - of which there are dozens of brands made by as many different companies, using different formulas, and containing widely different ingredients.  Some of them are virtually vegetarian, with most of the protein from soy.  What makes you believe any are a good or even safe diet?  Why is it bettas have so many digestive problems that regularly feeding them peeled peas to avoid or combat bloat and constipation has become standard practice?  Why do almost all pet bettas that live more than a few months still end up dying prematurely, and when examined most seemed to have died from obesity fueled liver and organ changes? 
Nowhere on the label of a betta pellet will you see the "complete and balanced for all life stages" assurance that is required for dog and cat foods.  The food's form - an air filled dry pellet - could hardly be worse.  Freshwater fish don't drink so swallowed dry food absorbs water from inside the fish- nothing a Betta would naturally eat would do that.  Natural prey and plant matter contain a high percentage of water, about the same as the betta's body. 
 Betta pellets aren't "made especially for" bettas they are made especially for betta owners convenience and manufacturers (obscene) profit.

I agree to the fact that pellets are not crap and are indeed just fine for betta fish for they are made especially for them. But they love blood worms! There is nothing at all wrong with giving them blood worms as a treat here and there, and they will not kill them. Blood worms are actually part of the betta fish diet, especially since bettas are insectivores.

Yes, they will "fight" with their own reflection, that's why it's good for them both mentally and physically to allow them to go at it for 10 - 15 minutes a couple times a day.  I've yet to see even a fighting strain Betta actually HURT ITSELF by attacking it's reflection or even another Betta on the other side of a glass pane.  I've more than once forgotten to replace a divider after a session - the two males are always tired and pouting, but none is ever injured or traumatized or dead!  Fighting males are trying to BITE the other fish, not use themselves as a battering ram.

If you know what a dictionary is, look up the meaning of 'sarcasm'.  Bettas don't "kill themselves" if shown a mirror - not "by hitting the glass too hard" or any other way.  Breeders raising multiple fish place dividers between the tanks and will remove those dividers twice a day to allow the fish to spar and flare at each other.  It is essential exercise both physically and mentally.  Pet bettas SHOULD have a mirror placed against the tank for short periods once or twice a day (10 - 15 minutes) in order to stimulate them.  No Betta has ever been killed by it's reflection. Many die from lack of exercise combined with poor diet (pellets). Few pet Bettas ever live a normal lifespan or die of old age.

Imagine yourself living in a small car or closet or even a half bathroom for your entire life, and the air was polluted and beginning to get low on oxygen. How would you feel? Exactly. People need to start looking at the fish's perspective for once and realize how they're living and know how they may be feeling. Yes, they're able to live in that horrible state for some time, but will eventually die from it, not living a very nice life at all. This does not mean they like living that way.

+GottaLoveGuppies
Some wild Bettas do live in rice paddies, but wild populations also inhabit lakes, ponds, streams, drainage ditches, rivers, canals, flood plains, polluted waters, peat swamps and have even been found in brackish water.  In other words, betta fish are found in all types of water environments, large and small, throughout their range.  Why is "Bettas live in rice paddies" mindlessly repeated?  Wild guppies live in large natural bodies of water too but no one mentions it.  Probably because everyone knows fancy guppies don't exist in the wild.   Ornamental bettas don't either.  Both are man-made forms incapable of surviving a wild environment.  That doesn't mean either species should ever be mistreated, it simply means the rice paddy argument is both inaccurate and fairly pointless. Chanting the  'survive vs thrive'  catch-phrase also needs be put to rest.   BTW, anyone that considers betta splendens a very "active" fish is either delusional or has never actually owned an active species.  Bettas are easily one of the least active commonly kept aquarium fish, it is a big part of their charm. They market HAMMOCKS for them for heaven's sake!  Breeding age males tend to blow a nest, settle in and defend the space around it- they are not at all inclined to go exploring. 
Stephanie Nelson
Stephanie Nelson - 7 years ago
They are really tough, and they are really hardy. Does this automatically mean that they enjoy living in a small space? Not at all! Wild betta fish live in rice paddies. So while the water isn't very deep, they have tons and tons of horizontal space to swim and explore. They're naturally very curious and active, and like to explore things, and you'll never get to see those behaviors if they don't have space to explore. It's not whether or not they can survive, it's whether or not they will thrive.

No, Lemon Lime they aren't that tough (and it's spelled B-E-T-T-A since you know so much about the species.)  They simply survive longer under substandard conditions than most common aquarium species.  Just like goldfish, most pet Bettas never live even close to a normal lifespan and pet Bettas that survive over a year in small tanks are thought to die from abnormal changes to their liver due to incorrect diet and lack of exercise, not old age.  Bettas are simply throw away pets to most people.  If you don't maintain them like any other tropical fish, you are one of those people.

I myself am going to do a 10g for mine and have plenty of plants and hiding spots with very little water flow and a heater of course. ive had mine with loaches, tetras, corys, and otos and nothing has happened. even had the male and female out and they are able to touch each other its not just teasing them and they love it. they chase each other and the female leads the male around and they hang in the plants together. so really there is to many stereotypes on this fish and not enough hard facts.

I've tried to make it possible for the betta to stay where there's calm water. It took some time, at first he just swam against the stream of water but then i rearranged again and he acts different, swims back and forward, sometimes chills the f*ck out under the log or on the grass.

I think maybe part of the problem of people not taking care of their fish correctly, is where they get their info from. Most people don't do research before they get their Betta. Therefore they listen to what the employees at a place like Petco say. They do what they are told and most of the time its the wrong info. Be careful with what these employees tell you and do your research before you buy a Betta.

where am i supposed to get all those insects,also u are just putting too much stress on people, you dont need those steps also petsmart never told me that i need a fiter and the starter kit does have a heater but not a filter. I got a 5 gallon tank that costs about 10 dollars and some decoration and stuffs, also i got a betta starter kit which costs 5.37 dollars and a mystery snail,2 female bettas, and a male betta and a water conditioner. Tell me if  a filter would fit in the 3 gallon flora tank

They can be kept with other types of aquatic species though, which will be a type of interaction. For example, I keep my betta with a couple of African dwarf frogs which make great tank mates for him. He seemed a lot happier when I added them in.

LeoNarwhalDaVinci
LeoNarwhalDaVinci - 7 years ago
Hello, I recently bought a betta (awesome creatures) and I didn't have enough money to buy a five gallon+ tank at the time. He is currently in a one gallon (this is temporary until this weekend, he has not been in there long, I know this is to small.) and it has a lot of sides to it causing lots of relfections. When ever I turn on his light he almost immediatly sees his reflection and flares (he puffs out his gills and everything) If i turn off the light he stops. But without the light the water temp tends to drop. I don't know if i should leave the light on and deal with him flaring. Is that ok for them to do constantly? Or should I just turn the light off except for when I want to see him good?
Thanks.

I feed my bettas NLS pellets, they love them and they are not crap, New Life Spectrum is actually one of the best fish food brand in the market for the super high quality ingredients, I also feed them frozen foods and veggie rounds.
Is just a matter of feeding variety and they will eat it.
Regarding the other nine (nueve en espanol) items...well people have their different opinions and does not apply to everybody, if you live in Boston the weather is not the same than Palm Springs when the summer hits the 120 degrees mark, so I think it would be a mistake to have a heater for you betta right? well thank you for taking the time in informing and educating newbies like myself.

Sarah Richards
Sarah Richards - 7 years ago
The processed foods a fish will eat (or even "loves") has little to do with it's wild diet or actual needs.  "Veggie/kelp rounds" are no more like plant matter than "Betta pellets" are like the insects and worms a Betta would normally eat.  Most fish foods are a homogenized mix of fish meal and various other ingredients depending on the label name.  Veggie labeled foods are dyed green and meat labeled foods are dyed red to appeal to the fish keeper, not the fish. Aquarium fish have to be habituated to processed foods from a young age, anyone that has tried to feed a recently wild caught fish flakes or pellets can attest to the fact that most do not even recognize them as food.

My male actually does great with guppies and platys. Basically all of my males have. You just need the right amount of space. I have a 15 gallon and three guppies and a pea puffer. They all get along great. And my betta loves pellets, he also gets bloodworms and brineshrimp. If your betta is getting all dried food thats not a sufficient diet for them. They also need to be fed everyday with one fasting day. A couple pellets a day is good. With bloodworm or a couple brineshrimp everyone now and then. They do need pellets because of the high protein. And the filter is a good thing to have, they will avoid the strong current, and just get a bunch of live plants, it breaks it down. :) Water changes should also be 10% not 40%.. And you shouldn't feed them peas unless they have SBD.

Do not put a mirror up to the tank and do not put any colorful fish in with betta, it creates a lot of stress on them and any fish expert will tell you not to keep stress to a minimal or you will kill your fish. If the filter is way too strong or creates any kind of current (on a 10 gallon tank minimal), I recommend keeping the water not filled to the top. I usually keep mine at 1-2 inches less than the top so the filter water sort of drops in like a small gentle waterfall and does not create any current or whirlpool type effects. Anubias plants and mosses help with filtration. This works great for my little fishy friend and Mr. Sushi loves his environment! I've read a lot about how good peas are for bettas (and fish in general). Definitely change the water once a week (10-30% water games at most, unless you don't have a filer, than 40% max). Pellets are a good staple food, brine shrimp, flies, larva of mosquitoes, black worms, but never overfeed them. Clean out excess food your fish doesn't eat to keep ammonia levels down too. Good video overall though. I love your enthusiasm! Thanks for keeping people informed! Gotta love and take care of your happy healthy friend! :-D

Actually I've found that 5 gallon tanks tend to be more expensive than 10 gallon ones... I assume it's because they're kind of an unusual size, and they probably don't sell as well... 10g is a decent starter size for a community tank, 5g is too small for most fish.

Great information, there are a few things I do different though, I believe that pellets are great for bettas because they have all the things bettas need in there diet but I do agree that bettas love those other foods you said and I do supplement in bloodworms once or twice a week, I also feed all my bettas 3 pellets every day and skip days so normally feed them only 5 - 6 days of the week including the days they get bloodworms, I also supplement in flake foods to and I also love the peas, they really do help. Also my bettas do great with out a heater they are always active and swimming and exploring. I do do water changes every week and they also have live plants to clean the water too since they do not have filters. I have never had a betta die and I am in my 3rd year of having my first bettas. I think that this is a great video with really good information for beginners!

+Fish4Ever
Any dry food, especially freeze dried, should be well soaked in tank water before being fed to a betta.  Freeze dried are real food and quite decent foods if soaked, and doesn't carry the very real risk that frozen does.  Frozen foods are fine unless they have been allowed to even partially thaw somewhere along the line, which is almost impossible to know.  The bacteria types and levels in refrozen raw fish foods can be quite dangerous to the fish eating them.
Fish4Ever
Fish4Ever - 7 years ago
Totally agree with Got2lovefish, you can't just feed them freeze dried things, those have lots of air in them which can make them bloated. Things like FREEZE DRIED FOODS are a treat! But real, frozen foods are a lot healthier for the fish.

water wonders Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ

depending on type of flakes, if the flakes are meant for bettas and dont contain vegetable and algae matter then its fine. i feed my betta both pellets and flakes which is meant for betta fish.
SkyxPrince
SkyxPrince - 7 years ago
wouldn't recommend it. unless the flakes contain 30%-49% protein, maybe. bettas are carnivores (as to being herbivores or omnivores). meaning they do not eat a lick of  plants or plant parts. they will eat basically eat anything you put in their tank but doesn't mean it is good for them. its like saying "oh my dog likes chocolate, he's eating it" despite the fact that chocolate is literally poison for dogs. you get my drift? also, knowing the diet of your betta when you get them is vital. I bought my bettas from Petsmart in which my friend who works there tells me that they feed them pellets. when i first bought my bettas, i tried everything i had from daphnia to bloodworms and they were so picky. meaning that they were still young bettas and had no taste for anything else. usually in youth, bettas will only eat what they grew up with. like a baby being fed breast milk, you have to wean your betta from eating pellets to higher protein diets like blood worms or mysis. remember, not all fish are the same and have the same diet. its up to you to do your homework and find out.

I've been confused with water changes. I've researched and get different answers. If you have a filtration system do percentage water changes, if you don't do a 100% water change. ??  I have a betta in a 2.5 gallon tank, with a heater, one small bubble stone but no filtration. Also have a 10 gal. tank and people told me don't touch the gravel don't change the water. bad idea. water got so bad, lost one fish. I'm keeping up with water changes now and testing kit, all is good.

Sarah Richards
Sarah Richards - 7 years ago
dylan willis, the "puddle fish" myth is just that, a myth.  Sometimes wild Bettas get trapped in receding water during times of drought and many of them die as a result.  Wild Bettas jump rather well, and use that talent to desperately try to escape the puddles you think they willing live in.  If they cannot escape, they sometimes have to burrow into mud to wait for the rainy season and open water again.  The only Bettas that willingly stay in small "puddles" are probably males caught with eggs or spawn that can't swim yet- the male will stay to protect them.  The domestic Bettas bought as pets are no longer wild Bettas and have been selectively bred into quite a different fish.

One time I was at Petco and I saw a Mom get her little daughter a betta in a half gallon tank with pellets as food. I wanted to yell at them, but they seemed in hurry and it would be rude. If you're a parent, do NOT get your little kid a fish unless your a fish expert. Fish keeping requires a lot of research. Betta fish require at least 2 gallons of space.

Troy Remy
Troy Remy - 7 years ago
Awesome video... there is so much BS out there regarding bettas. However, I feel some of your information is a bit inaccurate.

1) Filters: A betta tank SHOULD be filtered for a proper cycle. 99% of betta keepers are not changing the water enough to not have a filter. Even the small amount of ammonia spike in between water changes is unnecessary. Rippling the surface of the water is not an issue as long as it is slight.... bettas CAN and DO breathe under water when aerated. Surface water breathing is an adaptation. More concern should be about high flow that catches the betta's long fins and moves them about the tank causing stress.

2) Tank Mates: I've kept several male bettas with tank mates. While the general idea is correct, male bettas CAN live with proper tank mates more often than not. Otto's (Otocinclus Catfish) have been perfect in my tanks! Just have to be in a tank that is a bit more established and has plenty of hiding places. They cannot hurt a bettas fins and are too quick for a betta to harass. There are others of course.

Yes. Whisper HOB self contained filters. Look for one rated for a 2.5 gallon or less. You don't need much filtration for a single betta in a 5-10 gallon tank. There are ways to divert the current towards the edges of the tank instead of down into the water..... but a simple solution is to buy pantyhose and wrap around the filter inlet. 1 or two layers will usually do it, or more as needed. You can regulate the flow on these filters very, very easily this way. Whisper does sell adjustable small filters, but from what I found they are the 5+ gallon filters and still put out too much current on low setting.

Hi, so if I'm getting this right, never do 100% water changes? Only 40%? I've heard many people saying that they change 100% weekly or fortnightly. Can I get by with only 40% changes and no 100% changes at all? Also, with a sponge filter in a 3-5 gallon tank for one betta fish, how often should i do these 40% changes? Thanks!

The reason you don't do 100% water changes is because of the beneficial bacteria that lives in the water with your fish. Those bacterias are keeping the fish healthy and safe from Ick or parasites, and when you completely change out the water, the fish can accidentally become exposed to these things and die. I find personally that completely pristine water isn't really all that necessary.

With your filter, you can do 40% water changes every three or four days or so, and you should be alright. The water changes are more to remove the harmful ammonia buildup in the tank than to actually clean it.

Filters are somewhat overrated for betta fish. They aren't that messy and I would rather just do a "tank water change" of %30 than have a filter. Or if you used a small siphon host to clean the bottom of the tank. The bottom is the only thing you need to clean because everything just sinks to the bottom. Do you have a 'GPH' number on the filter? gallons per hour tells you how powerful the filter is.

The filter that came with aquar. Has a strong intake Im afraid it might tear bettas fins

Thanks for the reply chris, At least Could you pls advise beginners to get at least a 15 Gallon(50Litre) Tank for the Betta. As you notice they are very active fish. My White Halfmoon Betta swim around tank whole day. It is pity to see these kind of fish in Jars and small tank. Put your self in that situation. I know you are a fish lover too, Lets make fish world beautiful. Superstars in Youtube - people like you can make this change. tnx!

It is possible that bettas can be in a community and not fight or chase after other fishes but do keep in mind that other fishes can be the aggressive ones. I'm a fan of community fish tanks and I have a betta fish who doesn't mind being with my platies and tetras but unfortunately my platies like to nip at my betta's fin and I took him out immediately. Just a note to people out there, i'm not saying anyone's wrong :/. I just don't want people to assume bettas will start the fight all the time

I'm an expert too. I can help you if you wanted to. Tap water..... Hum.... Oh, it is quite true but you must leave it for minimum a day so the CO2 particles won't be very much in the water. Then' you can put it into your tank.

this is more or less for beginners and I don't like telling people they can try to displace aggression with other fish aggression like in tetras. I have done this too but.. for beginners sake.. I keep it simple. You are right though!

Dude did you get dropped on the head when you were little, like seriously stop trying to act like a betta nerd I have had my betta for 3 months now, he is thriving and I do almost nothing you say to do, for example you say one pellet a day and to feed them peas for the digestion track, well that's a load of Bs, I feed my betta 9 pellets a day he is very active and you don't need to feed him peas just to make him digest better because my fish does perfectly fine without any of that crap!

okay..Betta-fish-care-taker...I'm going to go to your website because I won a Betta fish at work and I don't know how to care for it. For one, it's in a small vase, secondly, it was filled with bottled water and I read that bottled water does not have the minerals betta fish need in order to stay healthy, and that tap water w/ water conditioner is best. Is this true?
Hauyen

HMM... my bettas LOVE small pellets... they would try to jump out of the tank for some when I'm near with the pellets... They also like bloodworms.

hi mate, I like ur video But saying ""Male Betta fish do not get alone with any other fish"" @ 1.33min is a bullshit. i've been having Betta for long time and I put them in my 4 foot tank with other guppies, Small Angels, Pleco and Neon tetras. He chase them for an hour and cope with them. So pls don't say like that at least give people to chance to try. thanks mate!
