Some of them have been able to adapt to a habitat as extreme as a peat swamp. However, with most of our pet bettas being domesticated would not survive. Plant life is sparse in the acidic water and the larger bodies of water are a lot different than the closed systems we keep our pets in.

I am talking about BB. Bettas are found in areas like that. Bettas are Bubblenesters the bubblenesters are found in Lower PHs. 6.3 will work.

Soft water is actually great for Betta Splendens.

Low pH kill BB but it can convert ammonia into less toxic ammonium.

Betta tolerance range is 6.0-8.0 PH. 6.0 PH is not that low.
