i am terrified for my two betta fish. i have them each in a seperate 1.5 gallon tank. they are showing signs of their water being too cold. i am a teen though- my mom wont allow me to get a water heater. one of them is very bloated, and the other just hides in her shell (its tank decor) all day. im very concerned. how can i convince her to allow me to give them better living conditions? i have not taken the temperature of the water, i dont have a thermometer to do so. crossing my fingers.

We recently purchased a 5 gallon aquarium which would become the new home for my daughter's Betta fish. While we wanted to upgrade him from the temporary bowl she was using to a larger home, more importantly we knew that with the fluctuating evening temperatures we needed to get him into an environment that included a heater before the water temperature got too low than the tropical temperatures that we needed to maintain. What is best water to use for betta fish. 2 1/2 gallon filter and heater

Betta fish originate from the tropical countries of the Far East, where the temperature is warm through out the year. Bettas need a warm environment and enjoy a well heated tank. Bettas are not as sensitive as other types of tropical fish and can usually withstand water as cold as 65 degrees, but if the water is lower than 70 degrees, it is probably too cold for your bettas. They may begin to swim slowly, stop eating and even become lethargic. Please read all comments carefully. She placed him in a .5 gallon for medicinal and cleaning reasons. Not for him to live but to heal. I have a 1 gallon hospital just for any of my fish in case they take ill. After usage it gets sterilized and is ready if needed with a quick rinse of hot water, filled up, dosed with betta Ultimate and whatever med is needed.The size and strength of the heater depends on the size and water capacity of your betta fish tank. A larger tank requires a stronger heater. Heaters strength is measured by how many watts they require, where usually every 5 watts mean the heater is capable of heating another gallon of water. So, for example, for a 6 gallon tank you would need a 30 watts heater. I think you really love your beta, and want to do the best for it. Your beta tank is way to small, a beta is a big fish, and can.t be happy in such a little space to live. Think, you have to live your life in a space, as litte as a airplane toillet. I'm sad to say it, but in this little tank, it will not live a long time. Just search at google about taking good care of a beta, and you'll find lots of instructions about the size a tank should have. It also needs a filter, to get all its waste out of the water, and keep the water fresh and clean, places to hide, can be rockholes, or high plants, so it feels save. I'm absolutely not judging you, some petstores don't care of they sell proper envirements for the pets, and don't give always the right information, they only think about selling. Others really take care, and give you a really good advise, as they all should do I think. I think your little fellow needs more space, some gravel on the bottom, a few plants, en places to hide. It is a tropical fish, so a heater would be nice, and a filter is really needed. If he gets this, I'm sure, you'll have a happy beta, wich has enough space to show all his beauty, and even is gonna come to you wenn you're near his tank. (sorry for my bad english :-)). Wishing you all the luck and lots of joy with you're betta.
