The popularity of Betta fish, also well-known as Siamese fighting fish, is because they are one of the most beautiful pet fish available nowadays.} Pretty much all Bettas have dazzlingly coloured scales and fins. Male fish are more brilliantly coloured by way of hues ranging from ruby to sapphire, and are more hard-hitting than their female counterparts. It is in addition accepted in a small amount of places to allow the Betta fish clash for bets.
They are frequently found in slow moving waters, and require warmer temperatures of water. This fact would also mean it is worth putting a heater in your tank to keep a temperature of at least 70 degrees to keep your Bettas comfy. In addition to their normal diet of flake foods, Betta fish will benefit from being fed insect larvae and small measure of insects.
Be sure to give your Bettas extra space to breathe and move about with their long flowing fins. They also need good amount of oxygen as these Betta fish are labyrinth, that is, they breath oxygen from air.
Additional Care Required
The fact Betta fish are violent in nature is well known. It wouldn’t be advised to have two male Betta fish together, or to add a new one along with an existing Betta fish. This might turn nasty if the stronger Betta fish start attacking, or biting the weaker ones. Care must be taken to segregate the attacking fish for the safety of the rest. If Two male Bettas do have to be added to one tank then it may be adviseable to add fish condos or mesh dividers to keep them apart. It is also better to keep the fish tank containing Betta fish covered when possible.
