New to the betta fish world

Hey betteafish community,

I am new to keeping and caring for a betta fish... But, not new to keeping fish.

I have been out of the hobby for 4 years now, but I previously kept and cared for a 40, 90 gallon reef tank. (SPS, LPS, and some zoos and rics)

Decided to stop in a fish store yesterday and got bit by the fish bug... haha

deiced to re enter the hobby with a betta fish!


- currently feeding the fish flake 3 meals a day.

- planning on changing the water once to twice a week. (any information on doing water changes for betta's would be greatly appreciated ! ) (Also on how to achieve the clearest water !

-Ill let the pics do the taking on what my current set up for this little guy is.
(objective for his home was to keep it as simple as possible. )

-His name is Tuna..

Hi Fattytuna, and welcome to the forum.

Betta fish need at the very least one gallon of water, and they also need a heater. Lids should be used as they are good jumpers.
