http://amzn.to/2AY4B - Feed your Betta a high quality food because they’re lots of bad foods on the market. I highly advise this brand (Amazon link). Omega One Betta Buffet: http://amzn.to/2AY4B Question: What are some things I can do with my betta fish? He seems like he is always kind of bored and hating his life. What can I do to cheer him up? Thanks in advance! Quick question... im battling high nitrates due to being a bit overstocked. All my other levels are at 0. Trying to figure out a solution. I know plants dont do well with cichlids but has anyone tried using them in breader boxes that hang on the tank? Other suggestions welcome too. Im in exact same situation... ive increased weekly water changes from 50% to 70% and added Java ferns... has only been 10 days but so far so good... tested this morning and only 20ppm... usually fluro red. If you are running an hob, you can stick plants in there that will grow in water but above it like pothos. You can also try tougher plants, like lucky bamboo, java fern, or sword plants. Java moss does very well, but when they pick pieces off, it will plant itself elsewhere in the tank so it can get everywhere. Im actually running a trickle sump filter but dont really have room in there for plants. Right now im doing 50-70% at least twice a week if not more. Same here take a picture of it.. do you have any room for an LED light and plants in there , start a freshwater refugium. Yeah they got it wrong for sure. Everyone thinks a fish with pearl is a JD or a JD cross, even the stores get it wrong a lot lol. That light colored lower body is what makes me think it’s a hybrid with a FH. Well we are on day three of prazipro and so far no improvements in Frank other than his coloring is much better. Still no signs of HITH which I thank god for that. He still isn't eating but he isn't hiding from me everytime I come around anymore and his coloring is back to normal. Sadly he has lost weight and it's obvious. I tried to feed him a red worm last night and I cannot see it in the tank so I am praying he ate it sometime while I wasn't looking. Poor Frank. I feel so bad for him. Two more days on this round of meds. Hopefully it works and we get our baby healthy again.

I used to have a betta who would follow me around the room at the side of her tank, I sound crazy but I talked to her and she'd swim around looking at me. She also would do that jump out of the water thing when I fed her. She was really cool! She lived to be 5 yrs old x)

I just got a betta fish for my boyfriend a week ago and he loves attention. He always swims up to me whenever I walk by the tank. He also loves to pose for the camera, and he's such a curious little fella! Whenever I place something on the desk, he'll swim up to it and check it out before going back to his little fishy business. He's a sweet little guy from what I've experienced. I can't wait for my boyfriend to take him to his house and experience what I did!

I have a problem. My beta eats all the food I put up at the top of the water, but I have to leave it there so the filter pushes it down to the bottom for the neon tetras, he is really fat. HELP!!!!
Blue Jeans

its good now... that one died after forever and now i have the beta and the same tetras living together in perfect harmony. no being territorial or other thing
Danny
Danny - 4 years ago
well first off you shouldn't hve tetras and a betta together. your betta is probably being territorial of the top of the tank and not letting the neons swim anywhere near it, in a normal community tank the tetras would swim to the top to eat but they can't cause bettas are single fish only they are not community fish. the only thing they wont terrorize are algea eaters.

I just got a betta two days ago, (named him Percy :) and he just hides in his little rock/house I got him. He doesn't come out when I'm around except for once, and when I feed him he doesn't know he's getting fed because he can't see the food if he's hiding, and it just floats to the bottom! Please help, I don't want Percy to die!

I recommend real. Silk is just terrible, I bought a silk plant for my third Betta Fish and it was terrible. It trapped food and it made my water quality bad and it started growing algae on it really fast.

please do NOT use plastic! That's really toxic or harmful to your betta, especially if it has Ich. I recommend to replace it with a real or silk plant.

If he doesn't feel safe around them then don't put them in, instead of plants try some rocks with holes big enough so he can fit through them.

my betta is preoccupied with eating, even after he's just eaten.  I wont over feed him, but I feel like he needs more food.  I always would wave to him up close to his bowl right before I would feed him.  Now when I wave to him from across the room, he does what he usually does right before eating (paces and swims fast up against the glass).  Can't beleive he can see that far.

Please put your fish in a bigger tank that's not a bowl.

TinyLittleSilver
TinyLittleSilver - 7 years ago
Yes. They're just making them out of instinct, and because they're happy/healthy. They won't be fussed if you accidentally destroy part of it while changing the water. I manage to not ruin it much somehow when changing it, but you don't have to worry! He'll just start making another one.

My male betta is in a sort of small round bowl. I want to up grade but I read that they don't like a tank bigger then 6 inches....? Is that true and is a small "regular" fish tank about 5-6 gallon tank ok? This is the second betta i've had... so i'm kind of new at this. 
Laure Schmidt
Laure Schmidt - 3 years ago
Five Gallons is wonderful for him! Just remember to give him lots of hiding places in his new home. Plants made with silk materials are best for betta! And they do need a heater. And alwats remwber to cycle your tank before you pit him in! I'm glad you are or where looking to upgrade.

Is the bottled water the kind from Petco? If not then switch to tap water and wait 2-3 days, 3 days is mostly preferred, then add your fish.
Lea Daily
Lea Daily - 6 years ago
If he doesnt have a heater and has lasted this long...hes fine. My bettas keep dying so i gave up switched to guppys and they keep dying i think its the water here. I used the bottled water not tap and they keep dying still.... idk how or why. I never over or under fed my bettas or guppys i had/have a filter for the tanks they were in... i bought a new tank and new plants and new gravel
Gloria Gosick

Update on my beta if anyone cares lol. I got him new decor. still in the same 10 gallon tank I got at petco for $10. I also got him a new buddy. One of those creepy sucker fish. Keeps the tank clean and they get along pretty well.
On a side note. I never bought a heater for this tank. It's it bad not to have one? He's been like that for well over a year now. 
AnimalLover
AnimalLover - 6 years ago
No the six inches thing isn't true, you can keep it in a 3 gallon but nothing smaller. 5-6 gallons is perfect for them, the bigger the better, but I would prefer to buy something longer than taller so it would be easier for them to breathe.
Gloria Gosick
Gloria Gosick - 7 years ago
i have mine in a 10gallon tank and man is he happy in it. my dad accidently broke my last tank when we were moving and so i had him in just a regural vase and he got all sad and started losing his color. i bought him a new tank for $10 at PetCo i think they are always having sales on them
Beagle San
Beagle San - 8 years ago
try to find something wider rather then taller, and make sure its at least 1 gallon with a heater :) i have 4 and you can trust im giving good advise, if you wanna research on your own just google "betta care" and most will say 2.5g and up but IMO 1 gallon will work too. :) the reason you need a bigger tank is that when a fish poops, it releases a chemical known as Ammonia, which is toxic to all fish. and it builds up SO fast in small tanks that in a week it will be like us swimming and breathing in gasoline.. pet stores lie about this to make money.. :) im glad to be informing you, most people dont realize these fish are just as alive as a dog or cat, but since they dont have fur, people dont care.. your fish can live 10 YEARS if in a 20+ gallon with filter and heater! but a 1 gallon with heater can give him 1-3+ years :) im so sorry this is long, im obsessed with my finned friends.. Kaida Spirit Fabio and Jupiter :) good luck with him!!

Hey! a 2.5 is a suggest minimum. ( I had my new in a 1 gallon... shhh ) a 5 gallon is great for them! They have more room to swim. I put my betta in a 10 gallon and he loves his new tank! And you can give him some friends! 
So now, its not true about the 6 inches thing.

Did you know? Bettas actually jump out of water because in the wild, they eat mosquitos. Do mosquitos fly or swim? They fly, so they have to jump, to catch the misquito flying above the water. They love eating mosquitos!
AnimalLover
AnimalLover - 6 years ago
Yes, they also eat mosquito larvae. So you can probably catch a few mosquitoes from your backyard and see if your Betta will eat it.
