Answer

I think it should be 10-20 gallons.



You can breed Bettas in a tank as small as 5 gallons, however, if you use a 20 gallon long, you can leave the fry in the same tank until they need to be jarred.

(Siamese fighting fish)Female betta fish, as with the males, can be a wide range of colours, produced by selective breeding.

It is possible to breed betta fish in an aquarium setting. However breeding betta fish is a challenging job and should only be done with proper conditioning, housing and lots of research. Be sure to know your facts before you try to breed betta fish.

NO!!!!! They should not eat betta fish...but if your cat has then call a vet, and don't get anymore betta Fish!

I would guess that either he is not in breeding condition or aquarium (water parameters) conditions are not up to standard for the fish to be able to commence breeding..

A small fish bowl should be fine for one betta fish.

It depends if the fish has had it before it was removed most probably not.

I believe you mean Betta fish. No, it should be fine. You can treat you Betta fish by giving them bloodworms!

Yes, betta fish originated in the wild. The fish you would find in the wild, however, probably wouldn't be what you would expect. since betta fish were domesticated there has been a lot of selective breeding by betta keepers to make them as colorful and showy as they are today.

No, you should never keep a male and female betta fish together for long time periods. They should only be put in the same tank for breeding purposes and then separated after.

Betta fish get in fights with fish with colorful fins and bodies. If your betta gets in a fight while your away,the weaker fish may die. But if you see your betta fight with another fish you should try to split the two fish apart [or all the fish that are fighting].

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.

A betta fish should not be in water colder than 72F

Beta fish by nature are a solitary fish. The males will fight to the death with males or females alike and will only tolerate a female if she is ready to breed. After the breeding if the female is not removed she will die.

User Avatar

Well, if you love your Betta fish, then it should live by itself. But if you add another Betta to your current Betta fish's tank, then they will start a fight because Betta Fish are Siamese fighting fish and if one Betta is in contact of another Betta, the possible reason would be a fight between them two.

If you want an active fish that moves around a lot then a Betta is not for you.

Betta fish are fresh water fish. Most tropical fish are saltwater fish. Betta fish also only get along with a few fish.

Betta fish do not eat fish.

User Avatar

Not other betta fish because they are aggressive and will hurt the other betta fish. Dont put smaller fish in with the betta fish because they will eat the smaller fish

User Avatar

Male and female betta fish should not be kept in a tank together unless the tank is large enough for a female to escape attack, there is a partition or they are breeding. Males will kill the females. They are very aggressive and are not schooling fish.

User Avatar

Betta fish primarily cant live wioth other fish because the betta fish will kill the other fish. The only fish that a betta fish can live with is a non-colorful fish like tetras. Contact your petstore before you put another fish in with your betta fish.

User Avatar

Betta fish - Siamese fighter fish are not salt waters fish. But there is another breed of Betta which is called a marine betta and they are salt water fish.

User Avatar

maybe if you have a warm house. but if you plan on breeding Betta fish in under 70 degree water, let alone housing them, your betta fish will probably die.

User Avatar

She may not eat the male, but if the male is sick or weak, she may kill him. It's best not to have a single male with a single female unless you are breeding fish
