Betta fish are personable pets, as far as fish go. They are happiest when housed in an engaging environment, fed consistently and allowed to continually observe the people and goings on outside their habitat. A happy betta is one who is alert, has a healthy appetite and is swimming in clean, comfortable water.
I recently brought home a pet Betta fish. Is there anything special I should know about cleaning the tank?

If you think the tiny bowls of water betta fish are kept in at the pet store are cruel, then you’ll be shocked to find out how they are shipped. Not sticking up for petco guy but there is a marine fish called a betta and there is a tropical called a clown fish

Ask questions before making your purchase to ensure that the Betta was well cared-for at the pet store. Also, be attentive when bringing home your Betta to make sure he is still alive. Since Bettas are not very active, they could lie dead in a plastic bag or glass bowl without anyone noticing. Sometimes Bettas are already sick because of the less-than-healthy conditions in the . To guarantee the purchase of a healthy fish, visit only those dealers that have been referred or those that have a proven reputation.There’s a reason people of all types love bettas. Sometimes called Siamese fighting fish, these feisty fish pack a lot of personality into a very small package and make great pets for almost every living situation.

Sometimes called Siamese fighting fish, these feisty fish pack a lot of personality into a very small package and make great pets for almost every living situation. You’ll find them right at home on a desk at the office, enhancing the look of a livin... 1. Place the bag in the aquarium with the still-fastened end hanging out over the side. Let the bag float in the aquarium for 10 to 15 minutes so your betta can adjust to the new water temperature in the aquarium.

2. Unfasten the bag and let the open end hang freely over the top edge of the tank. Try not to let any water from the bag get into the aquarium. The water from the pet store could have any number of parasites, fungi or other , and you don’t want those to follow your betta home, especially after you went to such lengths to choose a healthy one.

3. Gradually add small amounts of water from the tank to the bag and let your betta sit in the bag (which is still in the tank) for another 10 to 15 minutes.

4. Use a fish net to gently remove your betta from the bag and place him into the tank, still being careful not to let any potentially nasty water from the pet store get into the tank. Opening the pet store bag and plopping your betta into a tank will shock and stress your healthy fish. Don’t do it.
