Betta fish can happily live in community tanks and many specialist aquarium stores are now displaying their betta fish in community tanks. This isn’t a hard thing to manage as betta males are actually fairly peaceful, usually only attacking other male betta or those they confuse as male betta.
In fact the biggest issue with betta fish in community tanks, isnt the aggressive betta, but fin nippers and fish that are simply too fast for the slow moving and eating betta boy. Success can be found with many of the laid back tetra varieties, female guppies, and other live bearers that are different in colour to your betta.
As for tank size, while your betta can survive in a 2 gallon tank, this is not a recommended healthy environment. The smallest you want to keep a Betta in would be a 5 gallon tank with partial water changes every other week. A 5 gallon tank doesn’t take up much room and is much more adaptable. You have extra space for decoration as well and you’ll have a chance to see your betta actually living instead of existing. But you wanna know the best size for a Betta?
10 gal community tanks have been shown time and time again to be the best homes for betta fish. They don’t need such frequent water changes, they can support live plants and self regulate much better than a smaller tank. Add the that all that added space that you can decorate and aquascape, 10 gal and larger really are the best choice for any loving betta owner.
They do best with clean water and swimming space, so a 2 1/2 gallon (9.46 liter) to 5 gallon tank with a filter is a good way to learn the basics of caring for fish.

- His theory started based on how the Amazon works, which is the river drains and fills up from rain never using the same water. He wanted to simulate that the best that he could in an aquarium. Based on the math he compared 12 Oscars and 1 Pictus Cat fish in a 75-gallon tank (which equates to 5.7 gallons / fish) to the same fish in a 500-gallon tank. Changing 100% of the water in the 75-gallon tank daily and changing 100% of the water in the 500-gallon weekly. The math shows that the pollution percentage of the 75-gallon in any one day is still a little less than the 500-gallon in the week. However the 75-gallon trend is much healthier for the fish. David has the math worked out into bar graphs which I have requested a copy of and will post when he sends it to me.

Small fish tank kits (2.5-3 gallons) are often chosen by starters for their first Betta fish tanks because these are the minimum tank sizes recommended for one male Betta happy and healthy. Betta fish are commonly easy to care for, a gentle filter and a small heater are everything you need to establish an ideal environment for them. Known that, what we do in this review is covering some of the best Betta fish tanks and aquarium kits for sale that can help one male Betta live a long and happy life. If you want to keep your Betta along with his tank mates, a or will provide a larger house for the fish.Sometimes finding the best fish tank for your aquatic pets means getting very specific with the volumes of the tanks they live in. 2.5 Gallon fish tanks are a great pay to balance out a small, desktop tank with giving your fish as much room as possible to live happily in their home. Whether your pets are tropical fish, both freshwater fish or saltwater fish, there’s a tank out there for them.Let’s just face it: small things are cute and tiny things are even cuter. This list encompasses my favorite 11 nano species for freshwater tanks. None of the fish on the list require a tank larger than 10 gallons and majority of them can live happily in even 5 gallons.
It is important to house tiny fish with other tiny fish. The majority of the species on this list are shy, timid, and very peaceful. They can easily be out-competed for food and stressed out if placed in aquarium with larger, more boisterous tankmates. Nearly every fish on this list could live happily together in a 10 to 20 gallon aquarium except one, the pea puffer. Pea puffers can be nasty little buggers and would be best suited in a tank all on their own. You can keep the fancy goldfishes in 2 numbers at their younger ages. But after 1 year you are obviously going to need a 20 gallon tank as they grow at a faster rate. However, you can keep 1 Betta fish as it is the best fish for a 5 gallon tank.
