Yes, they can, and a person can live in an 8'x8' cell. It's about the same thing, except the fish didn't do anything to deserve such punishment.
Bettas, like most other fish, like to swim around. A single betta needs a 5-10 gallon tank with a heater and filter for optimum health. Plants and caves make it more interesting for him and a couple of rasboras might work, depending on his aggressive tendencies. They can't be kept with other bettas, but do appreciate tank mates if they have room. The red ones tend to be more aggressive. If he is aggressive, he will not do well with other fish unless he's in at least a 30 gallon tank. People tend to think they don't live long, but if they have enough room, clean water, and consistent temperature, they will be much less stressed and can live for a lot longer than expected.
They can live in 2 gallons, but you can live in a bathroom if someone feeds you. It would probably shorten your life and certainly make it less healthy.
Most fish can live for a few months maybe, at the most in too small a space. That is nothing compared to 5-7 years (how long bettas usually live). A 5 gal tank with some ghost shrimp, a heater, filter and real plants would give a betta the best life ever.
Unlike the males, which should not be kept with male or female bettas, the females can live peacefully together.
Yes as long as its a female betta they will be fine
Gouramis and other betta fish--just not two males
Male Bettas can live with female Betta fish except when they have laid eggs. Male Betta fish should not be placed in the same aquarium as another male Betta.
male and female have about the same lifespan
Betta fish are unable to live with other fish due to their aggressive nature, as they may injure the other fish. Female betta fish are able to live with other fish, however.
probably not.they are fighting fish,they might fight each other.hope this helps! *tea98*
Another Female Berta fish
None. The 1 gallon bowl is already too small for the betta by itself.
yes betta fish have to live alone or one will kill the other.
get the Betta Bowl i think that's what it was called. it has a filter with it. my Betta is perfectly fine
yes but only a betta fish and moutain minnows can live in a bowl :) oh and they cant live together
Yes, but some fish will nip at the Betta's fins. Male bettas cannot live with other bettas (male or female).
yes but do not pick fish that are soooo small like minnows because your betta will EAT HIM UP!
The male will either mate with the female or kill her if she is not ready to mate. Male Betta splendens will not live peacefully with any other fish of the same species. So the answer is no.
yes I have a tetra living with a male and a female betta and 9 other fish :)
Betta fish and goldfish can not live together! Bettas are a tropical species of fish that require a heater and a bare minimum of a five gallon aquarium (with a filter!) while goldfish live in a completely different temperature range. The pair would not do well together because of the temperature differences and their need to live in something significantly bigger than a bowl. I understand that it is a common misunderstanding that they can live in bowls, but the fish will not have a good life! Please do the right thing and never keep these two types of fish together, no matter the temperament of the betta.
No, they can live alone or with other female bettas. They might bite each other but won't kill.
The Betta fish or 'Siamese Fighting Fish' is best suited for life in a bowl.
Sorry, type in: how do betta fish live?
$5.00 at petsmart i think but they can live in a bowl
Yes, as long as the water is changed regularily (weekly, I recommend).
No other fish if you have a male dont put any other fish in it no even another betta fish! If you have a female you cant have different kind of fish with it but females can live together, my friend has to females who live together hope I helped:)
Only female Bettas can be kept together. That too will only work if they are given reasonably roomy conditions and plenty of cover (plants) and hidey holes. Male betta fish can/ will fight to death if there is another male fish in the tank, a male will sometimes eat a female so your best bet is to have a single betta or a female and a female.
