Hi All- I don't know the first thing about bettas but I could talk your ear off about retired racing greyhounds!
My DD has a betta. She got him for their 2 year old. The fish is not in a heated tank, no light and just kinda hides. I had no idea that they require heat, light etc. (no flames please) They have had him for about 6 months.
I am thinking of taking him off her hands and giving him a proper tank with all the trimmings.
He hasn't bonded with them as they don't do anything but give him food and I suspect clean his tank.
I'd lile to do more for him.
I read that the air temp should be much different than the water temp. That is not realistic if the water temp should not be colder than 76 degrees. Our air temp is about 65-70 on any given day in the house.
what are the best specs for keeping a betta.
