Well... it's much to long to write here. At the top of the page there should be a sticky that describes betta care. Good luck and do your research, your fish will thank you!

the general basics for bettas is at least 2.5gallons of water EACH, they need a heater for 78 degree enviorment, 25% water changes every couple days, and pellets or flakes as their main food for their diet.

there is still much more than this to have a happy/healthy betta so ya read the betta care sticky.

well i have 4 of them 3 males and one female. And im getting some new females and a few more males. Well heres how i care for my fish. I have a 15 gallon divided betta tank which has my pink veiltale and my king plakat. There is a whisper filter on the left side. I also have 1 three gallon tank for my betta male halfmoon. And my female lives as of right now in a 2.5 gallon hex betta bowl. I feed them betta pellets about 2 or 3 a day. And for my king plakat i feed him 4. I use little water conditioner. Because you can wait about 24 hours and the water will be conditioned naturaly. As for plants i have a few cloth/silk plants and a few live and a few plastic plants that arent that sharp. I also have rainbow gravel that adds some pop of color. I change the water for the smaller tanks every week on saturday or sunday. And for the big tanks i dont change it as often but every month on average. i hope this helps im new to this site and im just trying to get a few posts in.

For the big tanks you should be doing at least 50% per week. For the smaller tanks one 50% and one 100% water change every week.

Also you must use the correct amount of conditioner. Aging the water lets come chemicals out, but not all.

How small is it? You shouldn't divide anything less than 5 gallons.
