Jumping Betta fish - ZooBotanica 2013

SUBSCRIBE: http://www.youtube.com/DefiniteAquascapeTV LIKE: http://www.facebook.com/DefiniteAquascapeTV BOOKMARK: http://definiteaquascape.tv There was a single male siamese fighting fish Betta splendes in the ricefield aquarium made by members of Association of Fishkeepers from Wrocław (http://www.wta.org.pl) at ZooBotanica 2013 fair. Betta was supposed to swim in the upper terrace, where glass was installed in the wall to allow the viewers to see the fish. However, our Betta had diffferent plans, and each time we put him into the upper terrace - sooner or later he jumped out, all the way down to the main compartment of the aquarium. It's very interesting to observe the behaviour of the fish - he is clearly examining the wall of the terrace, to find the best spot (even though during the secong jump he mis-identified the spot, and chose to go over dry land instead of going through the small "waterfall" - but he succeeded anyway). A very intelligent fish, which deserves to be kept in a well furnished aquarium, not in a fishbowl with kitsch-colorful gravel and plastic plant! And remember - ALWAYS cover tight your Betta tank, because this fish can jump out and escape through even smallest crevices in the aquarium hood !!

Betta fish didn't live in moving water. That why betta fish followed the water to get away from moving water. If u take another fish in this tank, like guppy maybe they will jump go to the top... Bc they leave in moving water.
CTFishing 4579
CTFishing 4579 - 4 years ago
Menma XP you're half right. They live in water that moves very slowly. That is why people who own bettas have the filter turned on very slowly. This is also why they do not swim very fast.

Joel Weidenfeld - 4 years ago
looks like that last jump knocked him out for a minute or he was resting and taking stock,,,definitely should have a way for him to get back to the top , mostly make it a easy up hill swim, if he swims up hill that will mean he wants to go and make the areas contains different things of interest, see what a mate, another male and WHAT HAPPENS with babies, out in a area perfectly planted with surface floating leaves for nest building and make it so the jumps can't hurt them, also lose the gravel or put it over a planting medium,, it's really good because you have the whole top to view not just a side so maybe lower it s bit

Joel Weidenfeld
Joel Weidenfeld - 4 years ago
it's like he purposely avoided the break in the wall even as he could clearly tell it was a water outlet, looks like he wanted to get on the top of the wall to use that height to make the big jump, if he did it differently it would have been more a swim through shallow sharp rocks,, that was quite a leap, be like a PERSON jumping 20 to 30 feet from a stand still
Joel Weidenfeld
Joel Weidenfeld - 4 years ago
does he KNOW his way around?? did you think of that or copy it?? does he have a mate, you should put a female in that he has to find them follow them,,, I hope it's a closed loop so he won't get stuck and so he can map the whole area and avoid incorrect paths,,, he really flings himself, it looked like he knew where he was going as he didn't take the little water call and flung himself way down to where he needed to be.

My betta never jumped and the lid on her tank was always off.I did accidentally suck her up in the siphon once though... she got stuck in there alive and I had to cut the siphon tube to get her out (luckily it was transparent so I could see where she was). She got a bit squished and what looked like eggs were squeezed out of her while in the tube. She survived a further year after that so I guess it didn't do her any lasting harm?

This is crule. In the wild when this happens it is the most stressful and overall worst time of they're life. They are scared of how low the water level is and how they think they will run out of food.please don't keep them in this.

are you an idiot??? Before you go out and accuse someone of animal abuse, actually reasearch. In the wild, the water is like 5 to 9 inches.
star and fox
star and fox - 5 years ago
actually it won't.bettas get stressed in deep tanks cause they aren't strong swimmers and can drown cause they need to breath air.also they naturally fear deeper waters cause that's where the animals that eats small fish like them live.plus most bugs and fry in the wild live in shallow pools not deep pools which is what bettas eat.

it's not stressful at all.
Jason Guan
Jason Guan - 5 years ago
Fire Panda What the hell? That is really stupid...... Its too shallow? Well bettas live in shallow water and they aren't stressed at all! They could find food easily because many bugs would come to rice paddies to eat and then some times the betta eats the bugs instead. Espically mosquito larvae, the mosquitos lay their eggs in shallow water, once they eggs hatch, there a baby mosquitos, then the betta has a feast! Stop saying stupid things!
Blue Hawk
Blue Hawk - 5 years ago
+Jason Guan Yeah but he would be stressed because it's too much like the wild, the shallowness makes him stressed that he will not find food

They can't live out of water forever, they need to excrete ammonia from their gills or they'll die from blood toxicity. They can probably get enough oxygen from their labyrinth organ but they still need water flow over their gills for ammonia excretion.

This tank doesn't exist anymore - we disassembled it after the exhibition, so it was not cleaned at all. Too short of a lifespan ;) Besides, actually it was not a perfect tank fo Bettas - the air in the exhibition hall was probably slightly too cold for Bettas, and it wasn't possible to put a glass cover over the tank.

DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 8 years ago
This setup is not suitable for keeping bettas for longer time - bettas need warm air over the water surface, so their tank must be covered (as long as you don't live in a tropical country, or in a greenhouse ;) ). Anyways, we used styrofoam plates, thickness 10 and 15 cm, glued with silicone and carved to a decired shape. Then we smeared brown silicone all over the carved styrofoam, and glued lots of dry peat to it, and also some sand.

+DefiniteAquascapeTV Possibly, but on the other hand, they do love shallow water and big footprints, which this tank has. What I'd really like is a breeder, with a huge footprint and not a ton of depth. But they're not as easy to aquascape and display attractively, so...
DefiniteAquascapeTV

I think 10g planted is better for bettas than this "ricefield" setup. It looks original, but bettas feel better having lots of plants around them, and warm and humid air over the water surface.

they can tell by the water depth and flow that it will dry up (they don't know about pumps).  He would rather move down stream to deeper waters because it's safer from preds and he can find more food at the end of the line.  
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 8 years ago
You're rigth, land predators are also dangerous :) Thanks for you input! :)
Team Herbie
Team Herbie - 8 years ago
+DefiniteAquascapeTV true as to aquatic predators, but a flashy fish in a landlocked pool is a quick meal for a whole myriad of potential predators from land or air. I'd imagine they'd rather take their chances on fair footing (as it were) than pinned in a drying pool by instinct. BTW, i love the set-up.  Reminds me of courses i used to build for crawfish as a kid.  They do the same thing.   
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 8 years ago
Well, it seems reasonable to instinctically follow the current to reach deeper waters, to avoid drying up... But as for predators, there is more of them in deeper water, not in the shallow water. For example, this is one of the reasons why amphibians in Europe breed in very shallow water, and avoid depths - to avoid predators preying on larvae / tadpoles.

+DefiniteAquascapeTV then its because jumping is usually refers to when something physically pushes itself against gravity. So if the fish was jumping with that definition he would leap from the water through the air directly above him, but this is techniquely jumping. People just dont understand anything other than what they see and hear. Falling purposefully, is also referred to as "jumping" which is why this counts.

What is surprising for me is that he started to look the way out in the same time when we released him into the terrace for the first time. He didn't know that there is any deeper water down there. He just looked for some current, and was very consequent in following it. This is clearly some sort of adaptative behaviour, and I wonder how does it help Bettas in the wild... :)

During the exhibition we've lost female of Betta coccina (or was it B. strohi...?) who find her way throgug a small crevice in the otherwise wery tightly fitting hood - crevice used for passing filter hoses to and from the aquarium. The female was able to pinpoing this crevice, jumped out of the water, cravled through this crevice, and... we have found her on the floor of the exhibition hall, about 5 meters from the tank... Unfortunately, it was already too late :(
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 8 years ago
In fact, I had a lot of problems with finding informations about fish species which live in rice paddies. The species you mentioned live rather in black water habitat, not in rice paddies themselves (but I might be wrong). If you know any website with some more detailed infos about Bettas (except IBC) please let me know. And we chose the "designer strain" for a reason - we thought that long fins will prevent the male to jump. Apparently, we were wrong :)

The design is quite creative, but it's not actually accurate to where bettas come from haha. The betta shown in the the vid is a designer strain, if they used a wild splendens strain ie: imbellis, mahachai or smaragdina it would look more authentic. Wild species bettas can jump really high. Nonetheless, great vid, shows how bettas migrate from their black water ponds/rivers to rice patties during dry seasons.

That is the perfect Beta tank. I love that idea. I also wonder if females jump like that? Great video.
