They are very easy to care for. You just have to feed the live food such as mealworms and make sure one side of the tank is around 90F while the opposite side is ~70-80F. They need food and water like anything else. One hide on the cool side one hide on the warm side and preferable a humid hide (usually a plastic container with a hole cut out) that you spray with water because that helps them with shedding.

You will want to put an under tank heater under his hot-side hide. Then if the air temp is really cold (like in my house) then you can also use a heat lamp. otherwise if your room temp is 70+ then all you need is the under tank heater on his warm side.

Thank you! I feel like I got lucky with that picture!

He is usually active for about an hour in the morning and a couple hours in the evening. And thank you, I try to give him the best life that I can.

He's so cute!! (; What's his tank size? And don't you get grossed out by the mealworms, crickets, etc? I researched their care before 'cause my dad said we could. But he was just joking, and I didn't notice. xD

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!
