For a really happy betta try this...

No fish "greata" than a betta! Put a bright candle next to the bowl. They think it's the sun and absolutely love it!!! My betta, Tomata Betta, she's red, was not eating and lethargic. When I lit that candle Tomata Betta, came to life, swimming, swimming, swimming and eating like a ...hungry fish! She's so happy now and so am I. Good luck with yours, and hope my idea works for your betta too! :D

I think my betta misses the sun!

Thanks for the greeting! I have not tested the water with a thermometer however I did suspect it would raise it slightly. I could not feel a temp change on the side of her bowl and if it was warming it at all, the glass would be an indicator. My theory to explain her "attitude adjustment" was largely due to the stories of how they live in the wild. It's my understanding they like to hang in the grasses close to the surface where the warm tropical sun is always right above them. Sure would help out my "attitude"!!!

That's a good idea does it have to be a special candle should it be scented?
