a few things about this video.
1. bettas need AT LEAST 2.5 gallons NO smaller!
2. the fish food you showed dor pellets is crap. Aqeon or however you spell it doesnt care about what they put in their fish food and they put all sorts of random crap.

I'm going to get her a 1-1.5gal. beta tank for her room. Now you have me second guessing myself! lol obviously if the tank is made for a beta, then I should be good. correct?

Bad recommendation of food, the ingredients in agueon pellet food is junk that's the food I started out with when I owned my first beta it has glutton meal and the un natural form of the sea food if you want your beta to be happy and healthy I recommend using omega one it has great ingredients whole seafood and not a single source of unhealthy glutton meal that can clog up your betas digestive track it contains whole shrimp whole salmon halibut whole hearing and natural glutton the comes straight from the plant next time makeup012z please do your research before giving false information

How many pellets/times per day should you feed bettas? How much water to change and when?
Marlon Vasquez
Marlon Vasquez - 4 years ago
ss4goku34 I barely feed mine, and it has lived for around a year and a half, I usually give it twice a week, since Bettas are known for being able to go long periods (1 week) without food. so I don't feed it as often, as a year back, I fed it too often and it got bloated, I fed it less and that solved the problem.

Please also make sure to acclimate your fish properly and make sure that your tank is cycled (or that you use quick start) BEFORE adding your fish. It'll prevent new tank syndrome and the untimely loss of your new baby.

There's a lot more to know. Heater, water changes, not over feeding, cycled tank vs. bowl, appropriate tank mates...
Marlon Vasquez

Lori Drouillard all I have is a simple bowl, with some red gravel along with some golden pothos, the golden pothos use the Betta's waste as a natural nutrient/fertilizer, keeping the bowl relatively safe & clean for the beta, I do 100% water changes, at first, the beta becomes inactive, but after a day, the golden pothos clear the chlorine and the betta then is back to normal, mine is still living, had him for a year and a half

I just got a Betta fish. He is such an awesome guy. I wasn't expecting a fish to be cool and I really got him for my 4 year old. Anyway, I am new to this.

I only have him in a 2.5 gallon for now which he is actually doing really well in and seems happy. He made a bubble nest and swims in the silk plants I got him.

Anyway, two questions:
1. Can I cycle the water for a 2.5 gallon tank or should I just do a full water change weekly? I really want this fish to live a long time, he is really cool.

Also, I have conditioner and quick start in there both by API.

2. He seems perfectly fine in the 2.5 gallon, he's really curious and healthy looking.
It more so seems to bother me because the tank just looks small to me. What is your advice?

I have ask this from different videos but I want your opinion or somebody else's. I have a babyish female betta fish named lavender. She lives in a 1 gallon pitcher. Trust me it's a pretty big pitcher. But idk if I should at least get a medium bowl for her. I mean for now it kinda looks good and she seems happy. It's not my first time raising a betta fish. I have raised two male at the same time. There bowls where a little smaller but they seemed very happy. I'm hoping you can answer my question if I should get a good starter bowl/tank or keep her in this large pitcher. (Plz don't judge me for keeping her in a pitcher...

Ok so this is an amazing video! It's actually really helpful. THANK YOU. also many ppl who are new to this will be helped. But actually the photo for fin loss or fin rot is not a sick Betta. It looks a bit like it but fin loss actually looks more like the fish has shredded fins. The picture is a crown tail Betta with no fin loss. Their fins are naturally like that

fernanda pinon
fernanda pinon - 5 years ago
i just got mine yesterday. I was wondering if the water had to be warm or cold because the water in the tank is really cold what should i do?!
Totoro Lover
Totoro Lover - 5 years ago
+fernanda pinon The best temperature to keep your betta in is around 70-80 degrees F.  Any colder and your betta will start to slow down, have duller colors, and it's not very healthy for your fish.  I had the same problem as you.  One thing that you absolutely must do to keep a betta in a cold climate is a heater according to the size of your tank.  (2.5 - 5 gallon tanks should have a 7.5 watt heater, anything more should have higher, it's best to do some research on the type of heater you should get according to the size of your tank.)  The best thing to do if you're in an emergency situation is get some warm water (it can be from your sink, but make absolutely sure that it is just WARM, not HOT) and use betta water conditioner in a small container to hold your betta.  Try to place the betta in a warm room until you can deal with the tank.  If it's middle of winter (like it was for me) and room temperature water is waaaay too cold, put your heater in the water, and wait at least a half hour.  Keep a tank thermometer in the tank to regulate the temperature, and once it's reached (AT LEAST) 60 degrees, you can put your betta back in.  In winter heaters can be tricky to use, and unless you have one that regulates heat itself, you must constantly check on the temperature of the water to make sure your betta doesn't overheat.  If the water reaches over 83 degrees it's best to turn off the heater until it gets cooler again, around 65, then you can turn the heater back on. 

However, if you're in a situation and you don't already have a heater (like I didn't), order one as soon as possible.  In the meantime, try and find ways to keep your betta warm, such as moving them to a warmer room, or even changing the cold water out and exchanging it for warmer water (ALWAYS with betta water conditioner!) often. 

I hope this helps!

eRa Vise actually, if you add an arrangement of golden pothos in the bowl, it will act as a natural filter, as it absorbs the Betta's waste, the chlorine, and keep the pH in check, mine hasn't gotten sick at all, and I've had it since the summer of 2015

the yellow betta has Fin rot, the tank is saltwater and the absolute minimum for a betta is a 2.5g tank with a heater a filter and loads of hiding places, the 1.5 is way too small, I agree with all the bad example tho, they really are horrible things to keep a betta in. The fish in the Fin loss picture has no "Fin loss", it is his tail type, he is just a crown tail.
the message and the idea of the video isnt bad but the realisation not very good ;)

ok first of all no where did you mention the fact that you can't have 2 bettas together, or that you should be changing the water once a week, You also didn't say that the water should be conditioned and at room temperature. Also, it is better for the bettas and the cleanliness of your tank to use pellets, why would you suggest flakes? Most importantly like I said above you didn't say the most important thing MALE BETTAS CANT GO TOGETHER!!

Good for betta is 25l tank not a stupid bowl-shit




------------------------------------------------
the bowls is not good for all fishes,they can die
of many diesases if you are not a dumb never put
your fishes in this death bowls.What did you feel if
J put you in that room 10x10x10m?Proably you feel
horrible and j feed you 1 time.All animals need real home
it isn't a decoration its living animal and it can feel much more
if you think. You are think its just a animal you are asshole and you
not have a soul.Please say no for that bowls buy a normal aquarium for
your fishes.Thank you for that films ''How to take a care for betta,, and other.

People who want to keep Siamese fighting fish they don't like big tanks and they don't like a lot of water movement as they breath air we do and they come from a place called Siam that's how it got its name and they live in small pools or rice paddy and they eat mosquito I feed mine black mosquito blood worm and small cyclops they don't eat flake much and they like a temp around 78 to 82 and a ph of 6.8 and dgh of around 10 I keep some of my males in a Betta barracks there is plenty of room to move about and it's got dividers so you can house 4 males the betta barracks is for showing of your males and when they are ready to breed I take one male out put it in a small tank let him build is nest then I will put a female in a jar so the male can see her then when I see the White egg spot I put her in with him and see how they do and it get a bit rough and the female gets ripped to shreads but that's how they breed I have been doing fish for about 30 years and past exam on aquariology and water chemistry

Please, stop encouraging people to buy these small tanks and artificial plants. You don't wanna live amongst fake stuff either, don't you? I agree that it is totaly ok to keep them in a 30 liter + tank (and not changing the entire tank water each time please) but they still need at least the smallest amount of species appropriate planting which does NOT include artificial plants! Please, get some information before buying a beta (and I am not talking about the information from petco!)
Jennifer Albert

Its very sad that people have the notion that betta like small (under a 1gallon bowl) homes..people say there usto living in small spaces..false! The truth into why they sell them in small bowls is because they are fighting fish and most pet stores dont have the space to house them all in there own tanks so the easiest way is to sell them in those bowls..do some research and find out the truth. Imagine how u would like to live and treat them the same:)

JackoC

So much wrong information, bettas require at lest 2.5 gallons. They need filters and a heater. To cure fin rot you need to do daily water changes as it is caused by bad water quality. To cure ich you need to raise the temperature a little higher to about 86, this means the parasites eggs won't hatch to the high water temperature as the parasite won't be able to live in it. Also the picture of the betta with "fin rot" isn't a fish with fin rot it's just a crown tail Betta.
JackoC
JackoC - 6 years ago
Also if you buy any type of animal fish or not, you have to take on the responsibilities that come with them and don't just expect them to happen, to thrive an live.
JackoC
JackoC - 6 years ago
Daily water changes are only necessary when you occur finrot, recommended for just changing water normally is once a week, it is preferred as then the fish don't swim in their own waste and the parameters won't get too high and damage/kill the fish.

JackoC

Haha, sir you are hilarious, I have been keeping bettas for 10 years, I know what I am doing, if you don't mind but come visit www.myaquariumclub.com and see how your information works on there, most people infact mainly everyone will disagree with you. Turning the heat up will only kill if you exceed 90+ and daily water changes won't hurt the fish, it'll make it healthier as well as changing the water once a week, once a month will let parameters build up too much and will kill the fish like that, and quicker if over fed.
Seth Hai
Seth Hai - 6 years ago
Also to clear ich. Ik this sounds weird but baby bloodworms and pet smart ich clear works the best. Don't raise the temp because the fish will heat up to much and die.... So much of your info is wrong :P
Seth Hai
Seth Hai - 6 years ago
Most of this is wrong. 2.5 gallon is required. They don't need a filter and the betta fish likes to live at around 77-80 degrees Fahrenheit. Daily water changes will kill the fish. There is actually good bacteria that they need to survive. You should change ur water every 1 month but if you start seeing algy before that then leave some of the water in like about a inch and scrub the algy with a side glass scruby thingy.

+Brianna Harter Exactly. :)
Brianna Harter
Brianna Harter - 6 years ago
+WolfSpirit127
I don't do it to often.I also don't recommend doing the max of 5 mins.I worded that wrong.when a betta fish flares they use tail muscles that don't get used all that much to spread and lift their tails.domesticated bettas often have huge tails and so by making them flare to lift their tails up will make it easier on the fishes swimming.
WolfSpirit127
WolfSpirit127 - 6 years ago
+Brianna Harter *PLEASE READ*
 Exercise their fins by flaring their gills? :/ I'm afraid I don't quite understand what you mean by that, friend.
But please try to be aware on how much you're trying to get your fish to flare, because it can in deed cause stress to the fish if you do it too often, as I've mentioned before.
Though, since we don't have this ability, we don't know if flaring gills for a long period of time can harm or bother us. But your betta under the fact that the "other fish" (their reflection) is still around, it can, as well, lay stress on him. 
Also, know that they control that ability from instinct and defense, though I'm sure you were already aware of that fact.
As I said, please try not to make them flare too much. Five minutes can be way too long, pretty much pushing it. Not to mention the possible pressure. I know I'm making a big deal out of this, but it's for a reason. :)
Brianna Harter
Brianna Harter - 6 years ago
it helps keep them exercised and simulates them sense it's something not of their normal routine.it also helps keeps their fins nice and strong.you should do it 5 mins max.
WolfSpirit127
WolfSpirit127 - 6 years ago
+markthegaming bossatron You can do that maybe once in a while but not frequently, for it could cause stress to the fish. But it's okay do show them their reflection possibly once in a while so they feel like they protected their territory, but not for too long and not too often.

sorry for coming across as rude.
but to often people get fish(actually this can be impled about most pets) without proper knowledge or research of the animal.most often this happens to fish like bettas and for a long time gold fish and actually has led to the myth that gold fish don't live that long when they live for a really long time.also just because you keep fish doesn't owes mean your going to know everything.I once met someone who kept salt waters but didn't know that much about stunting other then what could only be seen on the surface and never knew what was actually going on with the fish as whole.

I've also seen to often people delete comments when they feel they've lost the argument or have been backed in the corner.
WolfSpirit127

you do know you have to acclimate the any fish before putting it in water it's never been in before.bettas are tropical and room temp water often is to cold for them and they can only live a short life in room temp water.

do have any clue about fish care?
WolfSpirit127
WolfSpirit127 - 6 years ago
+Jarena Roland Actually, cold water wouldn't necessarily shock your fish, but it would cause some common diseases such as ammonia and fin rot. 75 to 80 degrees F is the correct temperature needed.

JaRena 2 Times! - 6 years ago
You need room temp water because it's used to that and it would shock you fish

+Sero Guy
in order for the room tempter to even make it to 75 degrees it's would have to be over a 100 degrees in your house.if not your tank will be a chilli 60 degrees not really all that good for a betta fish which comes from vietnam and thailand in shallow nee deep water and the air tempter there is often 110 degrees.
WolfSpirit127
WolfSpirit127 - 6 years ago
+Sero Guy No problem! :) Also be aware that the room's temperature doesn't affect the water temperature. The water will always be colder than the temperature of the room, so I would recommend a heater. ;)

If you aren't able to afford a heater, than just give them warm water. A light is optional. The recommended temperature is 80 F for betta fish.

Don't you have to test water before putting fish in to make sure ammonia and nitrate levels are all safe in other words do a fish less cycle?
WolfSpirit127
WolfSpirit127 - 6 years ago
Yes. Yes you do. And try to get the fish used to the water as well by placing the cup in the water of the tank for a couple minutes than pour him in.

Do you have to have a filter for a betta fish.? My brothers lived really long in a small tank with out a filter. And we traveled with the fish and it survived. People always say I need a filter, should I get one.?

Amanda johnston - 6 years ago
A bigger tank is always better. You should have a betta in no less than 2.5 gallons. If you an a 5 or 10'gallon is best. Never put two males together. Use silk rather than plastic plants. Silk won't tear fins. A betas water should be 78 to 80f. A filter is best but if you don't have one you must change your water often. Betas can live with other fish as long as you at least have a ten gallon tank and the other fish are compatible with betas and the water conditions bettas prefer.

Depends on the fish, but NEVER put male bettas with other fish. Then again, as I said, it really depends.

3 gallons is too small for that many fish.if it gets dirty like that the ammonia etc. can spike and quickly kill you fishes. Yes, you should go back to your 10 gal- you'll have healthier and happier fish!

ryan seel
ryan seel - 7 years ago
Remember though, with 2 gallons, it's still pretty small- just not too small. I recommend shooting for a 3.5+ gallon! but 2 is fine :)

(I'd say 10 gallons is a really, really good size, or five gallons. With a ten you can have a SMALL community tank, and with five you might be able to add a snail. Be warmed if you get multiple snails- they reproduce very quickly. Some types of snails can self-fertilize, so be aware that pretty quickly your tank could be overwhelmed with little snail babies. :P)
Pawsandfins
Pawsandfins - 7 years ago
-Feed him once a day
-Just a pinch
-A heater is very important they are tropical fish and like the high degrees
-2 gallons is perfectly fine, just NO bowls :) 
-(remember when feeding their belly is as big as their eye ball)
Got2LoveFish
Got2LoveFish - 7 years ago
The pic of t he tank for his yellow betta was a salt water tank, this person just took pics off of the internet. But you can feed your betta fish 5 days a week 3-4 pellets a day. You do not need a heater but it is recommended, and same for a filter. And yes a 2 gallon is a perfect size and the substrate does not matter, sand, gravel, marbles, whatever

Some of the info in this vid is not correct. They need heaters, and at least 2.5 gallons. The best betta foods are New Life Spectrum and Omega One. Most fish diseases are cured with aquarium salt. Btw, just because you betta is a crowntail, it doesn't mean it has fin rot! To whoever made this, please look up your info before you tell the world about it.

And, how is it bad to keep a fish in a larger tank? The fish will be HAPPIER. Bettas might seem happy in tiny bowls, but it's really actually quite cruel. It's good to have a large tank (and long as it's not too huge), not a teeny bowl. >:(

I think you put way more thought into this than most beta keepers. Congrats! My ex-roommate had 2 betas, each in a bowl with less than half a gallon of water, no filter but he changed the water several times a week with same temp., treated water. They were surviving for 5 years when he moved. Not a good life though. I believe you probably do water changes but didn't mention it. And I bet you probably have a small sponge filter. These are not goldfish so they don't need massive filtration.

warren callan - 7 years ago
I would not put a sucker fish in with your betta as it will grow larger than your betta (even if it is small when you first buy it). It needs much more room than a betta fish and your betta will most likely feel tresspassed against. Besides, it will not clear your water, it will only keep the glass clean. If you want to keep the water clear (which is essential to your betta's health) buy a small filter or clean it out 2 to 3 times a week.

KenlovesJ - 8 years ago
my betta died recently. It was either due to poor water because I hadn't done another change in about a week and didn't have a gravel vacuum or it was due to temp fluctuation. It's winter here and my home gets really hot or really cold and his heater isn't adjustable. I am now prepping for a new betta which I may buy in a few months (after grieving). I'll miss my little guy, he was my first fish :(

completely ignore this video the only information which is correct is the tank recommendations. betta fish are more suited to a live planted tank with a substrate base. and if you choose plants carefully can work out cheaper than nasty plastic plants.

Hello.
Hello. - 8 years ago
This whole video is inncorrect in soo many ways!!!! first of all this "Fin loss" is called Fin rot, Second of all the betta fish you said had Fin rot does NOT! he is a crowntail betta. and also the tan for your yellow betta (That piture is also from google, Same with your blue one.) is a saltwater tank. Please please PLEASE do more reaseach before you star running arounf telling people these things. You have probably caused a few betta deaths beacuase people belived this video. idiot.

Your best bet is to pick up a 2.5 gallon tank, at minimum. But really, the bigger the better. I have all of my bettas in 5 gallons per fish, and I still change the water once a week. If they were in any less, and didn't have filters, the ammonia would build up in about 3 days requiring water changes that often.

Which would better? I WANT DIFFERENT PEOPLE'S OPINIONS PLEASE SO DON'T HESITATE TO REPLY IF SOMEONE HAS!!!

Oh, but you left out testing your waters PH and putting correct PH tables in the tank at least 24 hours before putting a fish in there, and you should wait the same time for conditioner as well. Also temperature of the tank should be around 80 degrees, so some people may need heaters.

Usually they're better solitary. You can't put a male and female together because the male will attack the female. If you want to put a male betta with other fish, you want at least a 10 gal. Some fish that do well with bettas are corydoras and african dwarf frogs (not the clawed kind).

if you wanted to put the two bettas together, i would defenetly put 2 females together, because they dont like to fight as much. there is a chance you could put 2 males together, but that is only if they seem to be passive and friendly. i personally would not do that. you could, though, put a plastic divider in the middle of the tank, but in my opinion that just pisses the two bettas off.

Louis B

Hmmmm. Well you see... Bettas prefer Warm water and spaces to swim. It depends on how big your little fishy is. Just be careful. PS. they like big tanks so for me i would go for a 2.5 gallon or larger but if your useing that 1/2 gallon tank, I would save up for a bigger tank

If your fish's fins look shredded for no reason he might have fin rot :( that requires at least frequently cleaned warm water to cure. I had a tank with fin rot once and had to use medication to heal the fish. Show your mom some research on betta fish and just try to get a small heater and filter to start. A heater and filter for a 3 gallon tank shouldn't be too expensive and it could help your fish heal. Or be a better home for a new fish if this one falls to fin rot :(
CatEyedFancy
CatEyedFancy - 8 years ago
You don't have to move either to bigger tanks if you don't want, but you could put the one in the 2 gallon in a 3 or 5 gallon if you prefer :) If you want to spend money on upgrades, heaters and filters would be good if you don't have them. As for other fish, I have seen beautiful tanks with a betta and some neon tetras, although most people say neon tetras are too active for small tanks. Just make sure you don't put him with something too bright, and nothing that will nip at his long fins.

How come every other pet beta fish I've ever seen were kept in tiny glass bowls with no filters or heat sources, and the people who owned them always said "betas don't need a ton of space and you only need to replace the water once a week or so", and basically treat them like cheap gold fish? I thought I was the only one who put my betas in larger tanks/aquariums with all the nice equipment I felt like they deserved. I even homed them WITH other fish instead of alone, and they did spectacular!

first of all explain to your mom bettas are tropical fish THEY NEED a heater and filter,ask her if she would like to live in a tank without filteration and be cold.I think she would say no.Also if she wants the fish to live a long happy life they need a heater.i can't count the number of people that have the wrong home for a betta.a 3 gallon needs a filter.and the tank needs to be cycled.if no filter do a water change every 3 days.but never do 100 percent water changes,puts stress on your fish.

Well, a few things can make him stressed, like cold water. I like 2.5 gallons and up because you can safely add a heater - 5 gallons and up is safer to heat, but 2.5 is alright. and yes boredom can cause it too! For me I've had to have one betta in no less than 10 gallons with lots of stuff in there, rearranged every weekly water change so he would stop biting!
Sena Hansler

I have just my one room to a high temperature (86-90), for them :) Actually, most of my bettas (once out of quarantine in smaller tanks) end up with adjustable heaters anyways. I've known some people complain "The temperature is 100 here why do they need a heater?!" for fluctuations throughout the day and night.
PunkyPug89
PunkyPug89 - 8 years ago
In such a hot environment aquarium heaters are not needed. HOWEVER, to the random users reading this comment: In order for your betta tank to not need a heater it MUST be in an environment with temps in the 90s and above. That does not mean, "oh i live in an ACed home in a place that is SUPER hot outside, I don't need to buy a heater!" No if you live in an ACed home, your betta needs a heater PERIOD. No ifs ands or buts about it.

I recommend just 1 a day, but 2 for fries.

They're only supposed to be fed once a day, unless they're a fry. So eh.. I'm recommending you change the diet because that seems unhealthy.

I like this video but I will say this: Give your pets the best you can manage, give them as much space as you can give, the best food you can afford and your love and attention. If you have any fish you need a master water test kit to keep an eye on problem water conditions and do your FREQUENT water changes. Your pets did not choose YOU, you chose to take on the responsibility of your pet. So therefore you must do everything you can to make them happy. NO BUTS.

He could be biting his own tail. I have sme tail biters! Some do it from stress, boredom, sickness, "just because" and also with some whose tails are heavy they may trim it back.

PunkyPug89 - 8 years ago
the betta you posted with "fin loss" does NOT have fin loss. It is actually one of the perfectly bred crowntails. ALSO, the 2nd "good" tank you posted is a HORRIBLE tank. You should purchase tanks that are atleast 2.5 gallons. reason being is it is easier to find a heater in store for tanks 2.5 gallons and larger. (good reliable heaters!) Not to mention you can't put enough decor in that tiny tank. So your fish may get bored quickly. Please do better research on caring for your betta.

how often should you clean the tank if you don't have a filter. do u use the automatic fish feeder? does it matter what fish you combine together in one fish tank? for betta, what is the best kind of gravel? bright colors or neutral colors? how often do you get new carterages for the filter? how long do betta fish live? thx nice vid
Charlotte Lester

Most people state min. 5 gallons. By the time you've put in gravel and plants it'll be cramped. Also I take it you live in England? Us in the UK do not have the warm climates betta fish need; but also without a heater, temperature changes weaken your betta's immune system and can result in illness & death. And unless you want to do daily water changes, get a filter. Ebay is your best friend, tanks and equip are v cheap. Proper setup with tank, heater, filter, treatments etc = £50 & 1 happy fish!

use some garden nets/mesh for strawberies and grapes to cover your tank, that way air and light can get in while the fish can't jump out.

RaqseeBismil - 8 years ago
Thanks for all the info, I have got a 35 Gallon tank but it is missing the lid. On both side of light there is a 3 inches gap. I am just worrying that if I put the fishes may be they will jump outside though the hight of the tank is 24" . What do you suggest should I really need a lid or just cover the gap with some floating plants?

TheJasekiwi - 8 years ago
10 gallons isn't the optimal for a pair of betta, as there mating ritual involves a lovely fight >< if you provide enough hiding space, then 10 gallon will do, but a bigger tank would be the best.

Skyler Forbord - 8 years ago
you can put female bettas together but NOT males, they will fight to the death. but you can put: ghost shrimp, mystery snails, algae eaters, molly, and platy fish. do NOT put guppies in with a male bcuz guppies have long, colorful fins like bettas and bettas with attack them. But all bettas personalitites are different and if your betta male is not very mean then ig you cud try putting guppies in, but i dont recommend it :) good luck!

@theJesusjen i never feed my bettas with flakes before..maybe betta dont eat flakes..if your betta spits them out after the feed,stop the feed n try feed them on next day. usually betta eats very little, he/she wont get starve if it dont eat for a day. the betta spit up the food just maybe he/she has no appetite for temporary. feed twice per day is more than enough :)

I kept the little cup that my betta came in so whenever I do water changes I scoop out a little water in the cup and put the betta in there... That way he doesn't get stressed out while the water is being changed.
DancingCorpse
DancingCorpse - 8 years ago
@theJesusjen Try different brands of Pellets, some bettas won't eat certain brands, especially if you changed abruptly. Just bloodworms will cause him to get fat, and he isn't getting all the nutrients he needs, pellets and flakes (pellets tend to do better) give all the nutrients and food requirements a betta needs. Bloodworms are supposed to be a once a week treat.

My betta fish will NOT eat pellets or flakes-he spits them out! is it ok if i just feed him freeze dried bloodworms? I noticed he will eat those. I feed him like 2-3 a day, is that enough? Sometimes he'll eat the pellets if i cut them in half, but lately he has just spit them out.

@venusflytrap99 I have 3 betta fish. The smallest tank I would use would be 1 gal. Most people think Bettas are dormant but they are actually very active fish. A bigger tank will also help keep their fins healthier. (Learned that from experience)

pripri1113 - 9 years ago
@betyourkok They sell betta flakes, too, but usually they're supposed to prefer pellets. They love frozen bloodworms best. If you don't have other fish and only a betta, you should get the ones that are sold in sheets instead of in little cubes, so you can scrape off a small enough portion and refreeze the rest. You can feed him freeze dried bloodworms too, but they're less healthy than frozen ones.

Some people might trash talk you saying 1.5g is cruel but its a lot better than the cup at the pet store. You can always upgrade later too. I think a 20g is only $30-40 which is perfect for them plus you can decorate it up reaaallly nice. A side fact.. Betta fish are territorial up to one square foot. They wont attack fish that don't look like a Betta fish so some tetra are safe cause they dont look like betta and swim too fast for betta to catch.
Xenoxander
Xenoxander - 9 years ago
Lots of ways to clean tank. If you only have the one Betta in the tank you wont have a lot of waste 20-25% once-twice a week is fine. Vacuum the gravel every 2-4 weeks with filter changes. The only thing you want to watch is shocking them. Premixing the water with dechlorinator and gettng the fresh water temp room temp- what temp the tank is at will keep your betta happy. Ive known people to change 100% water but that messes up your tanks biology and can kill your fish if its weak
