I will soon update my 20 gal. Tank to 55 gallon tank will that help the betta be more kind to the other fish ? Another question when I set up the new tank should I put the betta in for a couple of days before I put in the other fish or should I put In the platies neons etc. before the betta. P.s. I will not be getting the bigger tank for like five or six months because I need to save money :) -Betta newbie Watch this video Unboxing of the Marina LED 5 Gallon Betta Fish Tank Kit.

Pet store bettas are, unfortunately, usually sick when you get them. The best thing to do is read up on them before buying and see if you can find one that's relatively healthy. You can also ask someone at the pet store when they normally get more bettas and try to get one from a new shipment.

If you're using melafix, use half or less of the recommended dose. There is another product by the same company called "bettafix", which is essentially the same but diluted. Melafix is actually pretty toxic, and bettas are affected by it more than most fish.

I always treated fin rot with just clean water and aquarium salt - about 1 teaspoon per 2.5 gallons of water. I'd put them in a smaller tank (my 2.5 gallon one instead of my 10 gallon one, usually) and change the water every day.While you can always buy a standard 5-gallon glass or plastic tank and , the best 5-gallon Betta fish tanks on this list all include built in pumps, lights and filtration.sorry I don't agree, my betta is in a 100 gallon tank now, coming out of a 15 gallon tank, and it was funny to see, how he reacted at the space he got, and how happy he was. I think, a betta deserves a lot better as living in such a small half a gallon tank. And I really don't say everyone has to get a 100 gallon tank for his fish, but a little space to swim en spread its finns and tail it really shoud have, its a fish, and fish do like to swim, and for that, they just need some space.If you’re searching for the , these superior 5-gallon Betta fish tanks should be at the top of your list.

I have a double tail Betta, fancy guppy, African dwarf frog, and 2 snails in my first tank, then I plan to get another Betta for my second. I may upgrade these fish to larger tanks soon but in the mean time they are very healthy and happy! :)
