So you can keep a betta at the same temperature as other tropical fish, like neon tetras, angelfish, all those that require a heater, etc...

It could either be him showing his true colouration (most likely) a jumping gene or something is wrong. Check your water with a test kit.

Ack! My daughter and I just bought a Betta today, an I got it a one gallon bowl so it would be light enough for her to lift it and change the water on her own. Guess it will end up being a backup bowl. I didn't want to start with a full setup if she might not remain interested. I've had aquariums and ended up keeping my Betta in a small bowl because the other fish attacked him. He lived in a tiny 3 cup bowl for 3 years! Now I feel bad, and was thinking the one gallon bowl was a good start. Well, give us a little time and we will get a better aquarium. It will be fun, and things seemed to have changed a bit since 20 years ago!

Hi I am new to this site so forgive me if I am posting in the wrong forum but I have an urgent question about my betta.

Size of tank is 1.5
Male betta just got him last month, a walmart rescue
The temperature when i got him was 68 degrees and he was lively and swiming everywhere. Got the filter and he was still doing great. Then I bought a heater for 2-15 galleon and the temperature is at 74 degrees. With the heater in I took the filter out and the tank looks cloudy and Fish has just stopped moving much. He isnt swiming around everywhere just lays at the bottom of the tank. He does have a white fin but its not fuzzy or anything, just a white fin.

Any help? I took the heater out and am going to put the filter back in. Also I have been using distilled water.

I'm no expert but you should probably change at least 50% of the water and you need to use water conditioner. I don't think using distilled water is a wise choice but if that's all you've been using than I guess it's been working for you. Keep the filter in, change the water and get water conditioner like Prime. I have to say I've never heard of using a filter in a 1.5 gallon bowl but again if it works then by all means continue using it and think about upgrading to at least a 5 gallon tank.

Good luck :)

Maybe if you made a thread in the emergencies and diseases section, more people would be able to help you.
