Tips on Keeping the Siamese Fighting Fish
The Siamese fighting fish or “Betta” is one of the most popular of all aquarium fish. There are several reasons for this popularity. First, is their beautiful colors often referred to as “splendid”, thus one of the more popular species Betta splendens. They are in the family of fish called Anabantoids. As such they have a special labyrinth organ that other fish do not. This enables them to get oxygen from the water surface as opposed to using their gills to extract oxygen from the water. Because of this special feature they are able to be kept in a small container or bowl, whereas other tropical fish need a larger aquarium with added filtration. The sales of Bettas have surged in recent years as they’ve become displays in beautiful, ornate vases, bowls and glasses and easily kept on a table top, desk or counter.
So, let’s take a more in depth look at the question: can betta fish live in a bowl?

While betta fish can live in those tiny bowls in a store, this is not an ideal situation. It works because they're alone and because they are able to breathe the surface air. However, water conditions can deteriorate quickly in such a small container, so each fish should live in a tank that holds at least one gallon of water, and preferably two to five gallons. This will give the fish plenty of room to move around in, and the overall environment will be more stable. I have a gorgeous blue Betta in a large fish bowl. I change the water weekly. Based on the advice in this Hub, I am changing to a larger tank.

This was about 2009Betta fish are best kept individually, either in Betta bowls or in fish tanks smaller than five gallons. Community aquariums with other small, non-aggressive tropical fish are fine too, as long as there is only one Betta per tank. Keep the fish tank out of direct sunlight, and decorate with colorful gravel, rocks and plants.Betta fish are beautiful and calming to watch. Unlike most tropical fish, Bettas breathe by gulping air from the surface of the water. This allows them to live in non-aerated bowls and aquariums. Male Bettas will fight if kept together, but females can cohabitate in a large aquarium.When choosing to get a Betta fish, a bit of knowledge goes a long way.
