Betta Fish, sometimes spelled as Beta Fish, some tips about how to keep
If you have purchased a Beta fish, and you are uncertain about Beta fish
basic care, there are a few simple rules that you should follow. These rules
are the foundation for you to make certain that your Betta fish can receive
the care that he or she deserves.
First, your Beta fish requires water changes. Without water changes, fish
waste will build up and the quality of your Beta fish's water will suffer.
As a result, your Betta fish will get sick and die. As a result, this is the
first thing you need to make certain you know how to do properly when
learning Beta fish basic care.
To do a water change, you will need to place your Beta fish in a bowl with
water. This should be a bowl that has been rinsed until every residue of
soap has been removed from it. Soap and chemicals kill Betta fish, so this
is very important. Once you have done this, you need to dump out all of the
water from your Betta fish's bowl. Unless you have a filtered tank, this
water is dirty, and uncycled, so it needs to be replaced. Fill the bowl with
water from the tap that is roughly room temperature. Do not use hot water,
or icy water. Both of these will kill your fish. Once this is done, you will
need to add water conditioner, like Aqua Plus. This compound removed metals
and chlorine from the water, so it is safe for your Beta fish. When this is
completed, gently net or catch your Betta fish in your hands, and transfer
only the fish to the new water. With this done, your water change has been
completed. For most Betta houses, this only takes about five minutes of your
time, twice a week.
After you have mastered the concept of water changes, your Beta fish need to
be fed. A healthy fish, after all, is a hungry fish! Betta fish should be
fed twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening will usually
suffice. Feeding should be limited to what your Beta fish can eat within a
minute or two. When you first get your fish, do not expect him or her to eat
right away. It usually takes them a few days to get settled into their new
aquarium guide home, and they tend to not have appetites. Don't worry! Your Beta fish can
survive up to two weeks without food, although this is not recommended.
One aspect of Beta fish basic care that many do not realize is the benefit
of skipping a feeding once a week. Doing this helps your fish by letting
their digestive system clear out. This helps prevent illnesses, so it is
advisable to do this.
Aside from feeding and keeping your Beta Fish bowl clean, there is little
else that you need to do. With fish this easy to care for, and so beautiful
to watch, it is very hard to not to have more than one Betta fish to own and
