How to care

How should I care for my betta fish?
Names?
What does my betta need?
When should I get supplies, before or at the same time as fishy?

What do you know already?

Bettas need at least a 2.5 gallon tank.

They need high quality pellet food like new life spectrum or omega one.

They need regular water changes, but the number and around depends on the size of the tank.

Get supplies before so that you can be ready

Bettas need a heater, the size depends on the size of the tank.

Hello there Betta are amazing little fish. First off it would be a great to go to this link and read the information there to find out about Betta fish and their proper care.

By reading from this link I think you will find what you need for your Betta. If your going to get a tank with a filter its always a good idea to set the tank up before you get your Betta and let the tank run for 24 to 48 hours before putting your Betta in the tank, this is to make sure everything is running right and there are no leaks.


Getting your supplies together is up to you mostly but buying ahead of time would be great so you will have what you need such as food and water conditioners when you bring your Betta home. Prime if a very good water conditioner and something you will need to add to your water and also you need to add it for every water change.
