Betta Fish with Fluval Spec 2 gallon tank

So this is my tank guys, I was thinking of getting some tankmates but when I look at my tank it is quiet small. Was thinking of neon tretras but they come in number of schools and I was thinking of getting only 3. Or Otto cat fish? Just 1, if it is possible any of those that I suggested please let me know. I know beta fish are very territorial and dominantly aggressive so they must be alone. I wanna hear your suggestions :)

I'm trying a cory catfish and pigmy catfish and they've been working really well. I also have 2 ghost shrimp with one of my bettas

The water flow is too strong for a betta see if you can adjust the filter.  also try some ghost shrimp.

Brianna Harter william hutchby hey. I have forgotten my YouTube account password so I made a new one after so long! I was the owner of this fish, I moved him to a bigger tank and I learned a lot from the filter, size wise of tank etc with tank mates. He shared a 19 litre tank with a ghost shrimp and a few tetras. He lived a long life, and died after an old age. He had a really good and healthy life, now I have lost interest in keeping bettas.

don't put ghost shrimp in with bettas or other small fish.they are highly predatory unlike other shrimp and will attack the betta.especially in such a small amount of water.also that would be to many live animals in this small body of water and even the betta is considered pushing.

I agree with the other comments on water flow.  A betta should never have to struggle to get up to the surface.  Hope you were able to fix the problem! :)  I was thinking of getting this and modifying it for mine.

Your water flow is too strong thats why the fins are ripped. Take out the filter and adjust it to telhe lowest. I have 5 endler fish with my betta :)
dej92
dej92 - 6 years ago
Looks like your flow for the water is to high your Betta is having a problem swimming to the top against the current you should turn it down to the lowest setting. Try to add ghost shrimp or two Tera with your Betta.

The water current looks a little strong at the top and he needs to be able to come up for air.  Too much surface tension and current can stress them out because their big fins will catch the current and make them swirl around.  I found a way to buffer my filter by cutting a cylindrical plastic container (bottle or butter container). I cut off the top and the bottom, leaving only the sides, cut it open like a 'C' and tape it so that it curls from the top of the filter, around, and under the area where the filter flows out in the 'C' shape. I love you internet.

I bought a fluval 5 gallon for my betta, but it looks like you have almost the same setup as me. I found that even on the low setting, the water was throwing my betta around a lot because he's so fluffy. That could be what the fin tears are. I bought a "betta bed leaf hammock" and suctioned it right in front of the nozzle where water comes out. The water still gets circulated, but he never gets pushed around anymore. You could add a marimo moss ball for him to push around if he gets bored. Yours is a very sharp looking fish.

Tiger Tows hey, I am the owner of this fish named Moonlight! I did transfer him to a 19 litre fluval spec tank in New Year's Eve. He lived a healthy life and died due to old age, never kept a fish for that long and for a betta to live 3 years.

Wow your betta looks exactly like mines an a couple of ghost shrimp will be good for the tank

Well i hope he gets better and is weird cause my bettas top fin is also teard cause of a plant i had in my tank and maybe they are too big i cant say i have other suggestions but just keep looking :-)

Aw thank you for the nice compliment, he has changed. His fins above are teared. They are healing but it has been a while now. I like ghost shrimps but don't you think they're too big for my tank? I've a Pygmy cory in it, I had 2 but they died.

+Brunette1250 Yes, a long time ago I had another tank, 60 gallons, and even with all that space he killed my guppies, anything with a fancy tail is a threat! This time around I'm sticking to the 5 gallon and one betta.

Brunette1250 - 6 years ago
Thank you for the nice compliment, I've a Pygmy cory in it, the one that you just mentioned is too much for me. My betta eats the catfish pellets, I want the cory to eat as well but he eats it all. Any good advice?

The current in your tank is much too strong for a betta. Need to restrict that a bit. Google it. 

Hope this guy is still alive after dealing with that for 6+ months.

Todd Edwards well he was pretty much alive for 3 years and died due to old age. He lived a good healthy life, I moved him to a 19 litre tank with a good and friendly tank mates.

Brunette1250
Brunette1250 - 6 years ago
I've heard about a type of sponge that you attach on the nozzle to calm the current. The nozzle is facing the glass wall now so the betta cannot feel it. Yes he has survived for 8 months now

It kind of looks like a water wisteria or water sprite, but don't take my word
Jay Paranjpe
Jay Paranjpe - 5 years ago
+Brunette1250 Sorry, I really don't think that's water sprite. Water sprite has a more broad, defined leaf shape, and would take on its low light form under your lighting. That plant is probably "Myriophyllum mattogrossense" I had a bunch of the stuff for a year and a half. Grows great in hard water with lots of nitrates and phosphates, spreads like a wildfire too.

I am a marine biologist, I have been working with betas for years now. You can add a female betta or some rock shrimp, rock shrimp are a lot bigger and won't get eaten
sweetReaper
sweetReaper - 5 years ago
Female and male betta should never be housed together. Marine biology is the study of marine life, not freshwater. I have owned and bred bettas for 18 years and the advice you have given will be very harmful to somebody's fish if they decide to believe it.
Brunette1250

Wow pretty betta! Don't worry your fish isn't lonely. You can add a mystery snail if you want to get something else in there. I wouldn't do shrimp I tried that and he ate them right away.

Brunette1250 - 6 years ago
Yeah I've tried red cherry shrimps and he killed all 3, right now I have a Pygmy cory. He does not mind it at all

Lovely Simamese fighter. Nice tank aswell but is unsuitable for another tank mate. if you upgraded to a five gallon or bigger, you could add more fish for a better experience it also alot easier to take care of than a smaller tank. hope this helps!

Hi, I think the plant in your tank is a water sprite . . Or another variation.
