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.Once the basic needs of the Betta are understood, they are a very low maintenance pet, even when it comes toother fish. However, certain information does need to be known so that you can prepare your Betta fish bowl in amanner that will make its acclimation to it's new home with as little stress as possible.Welcome to my website dedicated to the beautiful aquarium fish, the Betta fish. Here you will find information and advice about keeping a Betta fish in fish bowls. You can read about , and in his little home, the Betta Fish Bowl.The bowl will need to be thoroughly cleaned before the Betta can be added. Betta's are incredibly sensitivewhich means you should never use any cleaners, even mild soap, when washing the Betta fish bowl. Use hot wateronly. All water used for Betta fish, whether during the initial setup, or during water changes, needs to be at roomtemperature. Tap water should be left out overnight, so that many of the chemicals and impurities will evaporateout of the water. Betta's are very sensitive to both chlorine and chloramine. There are drops and tablets,available at most pet stores, that you should use in the water to remove these elements.First, you have to choose the Betta fish bowl that you would like to use. Glass or plastic work well, but it isvital to choose one with a lid, as Betta's are known to jump. Unless you want to find your Betta on the floor, thelid (with breathing holes) is pretty important. Betta fish originate in shallow pools of water in rice paddies inSoutheastern Asia. This means that they can survive in as little as a gallon of water for an adult fish. However,for prime health and happiness, a larger container is recommended. While they can survive in one of those typical"Betta boxes", they will be happier and healthier with more room to roam. Many betta owners keep these colorful fish in small fish bowls or cups because the fish are used to very shallow waters in their natural habitat, but one thing nearly all of the owners forget is that bettas thrive best in warm water. If the tank's water temperature dips below 75 degrees, the betta fish will quickly become dispirited, lethargic and perhaps . Maintaining a water temperature of 80 degrees Fahrenheit, however, will improve the fish's health and well-being.
