How to care for a Betta Fish
Betta fish (Siamese Fighting Fish) are a wonderful pet, in my opinion. They are very soothing to watch and relaxes me when I'm stressed. You'll often see them in a tiny dirty cup at a pet store (especially Walmart 😑) rotting away. So if you got one, and don’t know how to care for it, then you found the right article.
1. Tank: The bare minimum is 2.5 gallons but I recommend 5 gallons.
2. Temperature: 78° to 80° degrees Fahrenheit.
3. Ph: Bettas thrive at 6.5 to 7.0.
4. Decor: You can have plastic or live plants, but I recommend live plants because they remove harmful ammonia, provide oxygen and they look amazing.
5. Food: I use soaked pellets and frozen bloodworms, and it’s good to have variety.
6. Water changes: You should change 20–25% of the water weekly.
7. Love: Always give them lots of love ❤❤.
8. Tank mates(optional): betta fish like to be alone, but you can add tank mates depending on its personality.
- Ghost Shrimp: 5-gallons or more.
- Feeder guppies: 8-gallons or more.
- Neon Tetras: 10-gallons or more.
- Cory Catfish: 10-gallons or more.
- Harlequin Rasboras: 10-gallons or more.
- Nerite Snails: 5-gallons or more.
- Ember Tetras: 10-gallons or more.
I hope this will encourage you to get a betta fish or take the best care of the one you got😉
