Picking the Right Betta Fish Tank for Piscine Pals

You "Betta" put your fish in a new home they will love!

There's a lot that goes into Betta fish keeping. The fish tank setup can be fairly easy, but you have to have all the essentials before you can put together the perfect habitat for your Betta fish. Keep in mind, Betta fish do not like tank mates. You will be investing in a tank for just one fish, but you should want to give your pets the best living experience. Some people like divider tanks, but they seem to be on the smaller tank side.

Betta Fish Tank Size?

Aim for a 5 gallon tank, but if you'd like to find something as big as a 10 gallon tank, that's a great idea! Betta fish are known as fighting fish, so even though they're going to have the tank to themselves, they still need a lot of room. They're kind of stingy little fellas.

Can Bettas Live With Other Fish?

Betta fish are known for being aggressive and territorial. They don't care for fish that are bigger than them. In fact, they might see them as a threat and will begin to fight them. That's the last thing you want happening. Some believe female Bettas can coexist with other tropical fish if you put them in a much larger tank. I personally wouldn't take the risk.

What Does a Betta Tank Need?

Some of these tanks have nice starter kit essentials! If you come across one that doesn't have everything you need, feel free to choose your own Betta fish tank supplies. A filtration system, warm water, gravel, and decor is what your glass tank needs.
