Air quality concerns

So, question:

I light candle oil in my room, by my bettas. Should I be worried about them? I also smoke in the same room as them.


Thanks! :)

Do you have filtration/aeration in it's tank? Bettas will breath atmospheric air a lot less if their water is well oxygenated.

No, I don't. Right now their in plain, individual tanks because I'm working on getting them into something bigger.

I wouldn't smoke in the room. Bettas are surface breathers and breathe the air in the room. If you want your betta to smoke secondhand smoke, then go ahead, otherwise, I would be very careful. Bettas are tough fish and can handle a lot. As long as the candle oil isnt toxic, then it should be ok to use. Check that out.

Update: checked with the company, and the fragrance oil and candles and non-toxic, and I've basically stopped smoking in the room with them. :)
