Proper Betta Care 101
Come talk to me about proper betta diet, tank set up, environment, and more for a happy and active fish that will be brightly colored, have beautiful long fins and live for many years. These fish can be wonderful pets and deserve proper care and not to be neglected.
Have you ever heard the myth that bettas can survive in a vase with a plant on top, only nibbling at the roots for food and with minimal care? Or that they can live happily in a tiny bowl for their whole lives? Serving essentially as a decoration that doesn't require much care or attention isn't healthy for any animal, especially the beautiful and graceful betta splendens.
Also known as a Siamese fighting fish, pervasive myths plague the internet and pet industry about their care, often leading to sick fish, shortened life spans, and overall low quality of life. Did you know betta fish have fiesty and active personalities, and without the proper environment and stimulation can become discolored, depressed, and sick? Have you ever heard the myth that bettas live in small puddles? Even some pet store employees are misinformed about their proper care.
