A betta is a great fish to keep. Food if you want to make easy...buy the one with the pic of the betta on it. Treats are always a good choice, be it it brine shrimp or bloodworms, etc.TypicalAqua said:HI so I decided to get a betta and I would like to know all the info about it, as in what type of food, tankmates, cold or warm water and do they NEED a small aquarium?
He wants one in a 100 gallon, like he said in his other thread.djr1 said:A betta is a great fish to keep. Food if you want to make easy...buy the one with the pic of the betta on it. Treats are always a good choice, be it it brine shrimp or bloodworms, etc.
Definitely warmer temps are preferred. It'a a tropical fish. Mid to upper 70's.
Now forgive me but bettas have been successfully housed in small quarters. I do not advocate this.
What size tank are you considering?
100 gallons for a betta??! Why its like a paradise for them it can happen as long as they have plants or big decor to rest onAquaticBrandon said:Yeah a 10 gallon would be perfect for a betta. Also I would like to mention that in a 100 gallon, the betta would get really tired from a lot of swimming. They tend to swim to the top of the tank often and in a 100 gallon it would be very hard for the betta. A 100 gallon would look kinda boring with just a betta imo.
I'm not really surprised, but that tank is nowhere near the size of a 100g.kuhliloach85 said:I know it's crazy, but my betta really did wonderful in a 20 gallon. A LOT of space for him to really fan out.... They're fairly large, when you consider their full body size...
