I am hopefully going to be starting a betta fish tank study.
I have been trying to decide on new tanks for my three male bettas, who are currently housed in 4 gallon heated and filtered tanks. My cousins and grandmas have their bettas in 1/2-1 gallon tanks and it made me think-who's betta is healthier?
One time, when I was younger I housed my past betta in a 1/2 gallon tank. I switched his tanks all the time, but he never had a heater or filter. He lived 6 years.
I haven't had that much luck with my bettas with heaters and filters. One had actually died when I introduced him to it, although that may not be the reason he died.
So this all made me start studying for this, and I need some of your betta(s) info:
How many gallons?
Where is s/he from?
Heater or filter?
How often is the tank cleaned?
How much water is taken out?
Thank you, it will help a lot.
Please feel free to share your options or stories also.
