The only way to end this treatment of domestic bettas is through educating others, particularly pet store staff, next time you see the the bettas suffering in cups in stores. As the customer, you have a right to politely voice your concerns and point out inappropriate care to staff. If they espouse the common betta myths to you, you can confidently debunk them with this information, which I have gathered from experienced betta keepers and wild fish collectors, who have seen and catalogued natural habitats properly. Feel free also to post short points on these myths on online product reviews of betta tanks, such as ‘photo frames’, desk lamps, and other novelty containers which, though cute, have no right housing any animal. With enough education, less people will purchase these tiny containers and hopefully, one day, aquariums marketed to bettas will be filtered, heated, 3-5gal (12-20L) tanks with silk or real plants which will keep any betta safe and happy for their full lifespan.

Betta fish () are also called Siamese fighting fish for their native range and aggressive nature. Originally native to the Mekong River and its tributaries throughout Laos, Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia, these fish are adaptable and also live in rice paddies and drainage ditches. They can be invasive species that threaten native fish in other areas, however, and are not generally welcome in wild habitats outside their range.

Betta fish have a that allows them to breathe oxygen through atmospheric air as well as through the water. In their natural habitat, Bettas’ ability to breathe air allows them to swim in shallow water between many kinds of water plants, and rise to the surface to feed on larvae and plankton. When introducing your Betta into a fish tank bowl, create an environment similar to his natural habitat. This setup will not only look beautiful, but it will also keep your Betta happy and healthy. Add appropriate plants and into the Betta’s tank that resemble his native waters. Betta splendens are native to freshwater environments located in Southeastern Asia and more specifically in countries such as Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Burma and Laos. In their natural habitat, betta fish live in environments with very thick vegetation, low dissolved oxygen concentrations, high, stable temperatures, and shallow, slow moving waters. Such environments include: shallow rice patties, overgrown ponds, and polluted streams. (Sturgeon, 2001). These are just a few examples of due to the habitat that the betta fish lives in. Because of these highly specialized adaptions, betta fish must have these environmental factors in order to survive. These factors again include: shallow waters, low dissolved oxygen concentration, high, stable temperatures, and slow moving waters just to name a few that bring the betta fish habitat into a well-functioning environment for this organism. However, these environmental factors sometimes get altered from the natural conditions because these fish are also kept as pets all over the world. This aspect gives this fish another type of habitat other than its natural one. Another characteristic of their environment is the temperature. In Thailand the average temperature year round is approximately 75ᵒF. To see in interactive map of Southeastern Asia and the betta fish's habitat . Betta fish need their environments temperature to be around this to maintain their metabolic processes. At temperatures below 70ᵒF betta fish enter a state of very low activity because of the slow pace of their metabolic processes at this temperature. For the other end of the betta’s metabolic rate, at temperatures above 81ᵒF, their metabolic processes move extremely fast and process biological wastes too quickly. This accelerated metabolism throughout the body also causes the fish to age more quickly than in its preferred temperature in the mid to upper 70’s (Purser, 2007). The photos plant is another safe plant for your Betta. This plant is usually found in terrariums and fish aquariums and is ideal for indoor setups because it does not require much light. The water sprites and java fern plants are also other acceptable plants you can use in your Betta's recreated habitat.
