Important Betta Fish Care

Submitted by on 22 May 2011 – 23:17 3 Comments
  • IMPORTANT BETTA FISH CARE, put your only one betta per bowl! They’re called “fighting fish” for a reason. They are highly territorial animals and will react violently if two are placed in the same container. You can see the preliminary phase of their fighting, the threat display, if you put a mirror up against the bowl. Notice the raised gill covers, which makes the betta look bigger.

  • Keep your betta fish bowl away from sources of hot and cold air such as heaters, heater vents, cold or sunny windows, drafts, air conditioner vents, etc. It’s is important that this bowl be kept cool at about 74 to 80 degrees F. Put it in a place away from extremes of hot and cold, and don’t let the temperature change too quickly.
  • Change the water in the your betta fish bowl when it starts to look cloudy, about once a week. Let the water age at least 24 hours (tapped water), to release some of the chemicals. After transfering the betta to a container (with either the old water or the water you’re going to use) clean the bowl, and rinse thoroughly. Also rinse any decorations (rocks, shells, plastic plants, etc.) before filling the bowl with the aged water, and releasing your Siamese fighting fish.
  • Feed your Siamese fighting fish two or three times a day, only what he will eat in a few minutes. Overfeeding will make the water cloud faster, and your betta will be more likely to get ill.

Four poin above are IMPORTANT THINGS ABOUT BETTA FISH CARE, follow it and then you will get your betta fish healty and beautifull betta with bright color.

    Some of this information is wrong. The betta is a tropical fish and they like warmer temperatures (74-80). Another thing is you should always treat the tap water with something that removes the chemicals for the fish, this doesn’t mention that. And NEVER use soap in a fish bowl! EVER!
