Go to Wal-Mart and get specalized rocks that absorb waste in the water.They will normally be blue and grayish-white. I have a snail in mine to clean away the dirt but just one they breed

get the Betta Bowl i think that's what it was called. it has a filter with it. my Betta is perfectly fine

a filter is very good in a fish bowl but at the same time the fish needs some space for it to swim around. the filter will keep the water clean and you will not have to clean the bowl as often as you normally do

I have a male betta in a 1 gal bowl & I change his water, put in bettasafe, and oxygenate about once a week

User Avatar

Mostly anything. You don't need a filter, so they can live happily in a bowl. I have had a crown tail betta in a fish bowl with a few caves and rocks, and he has been happy for about three years!

it depends on if they have egg's in there but if not they don't get angry.

Betta fish can have bowls for homes. There is no need to put a dent in your wallet just to get a fish tank. The best idea for the health of your fish (and to save some money) is to get a two gallon bowl. The best way to clean the bowl is to remove the Betta into a cup with it's tank water, then throughly clean the bowl and decorations.Add back all the decorations and gravel, fill the bowl with water that is the same temperature as the old water, and add in the recommended dosage of aquarium water conditioner per the instructions on the bottle. Scoop your betta from the cup & place into the clean bowl of water.

Betta fish are about the only kind of fish that can survive with no filter. They prefer still water or a very gentle current, so as long as you are keeping their water warm and clean (at least 80* F) they will thrive in a one gallon, unfiltered bowl. Change the water at least weekly to keep a one-gallon betta tank clean. Change more often in anything smaller (and it's not recommended to keep them in anything smaller).

As long as the fish bowl only has one betta, or perhaps some ghost shrimp, then you should clean it weekly.If you have any other type of fish in it such as a goldfish, then you need to get a 20 gallon starter kit.

First you clean the bowl and make sure there is not dust or residue on it then, you fill it up ith warmish water and put betta water cleaner in it :)

User Avatar

You can, and you can live in a closet, but neither is recommended. The smallest size tank for a healthy betta is a 5 gallon with heater and filter. Bettas need a consistent temperature of about 80 degrees.

User Avatar

None. The 1 gallon bowl is already too small for the betta by itself.

No! You don't have to have a plant in a betta tank.

Your betta is building a bubble nest and is ready to mate.

If the Betta aquarium is properly set up with a filter, heater, substrate, plants and light then 10% water change weekly should be enough. If a Betta is in a tiny bowl/container with none of the above mentioned neccessities then the water should be changed daily.

User Avatar

That depends on what sort of fish you have, for a Betta Fish I would suggest, once a week, for Goldfish three times a week.

User Avatar

to keep a fish tank clear, clean the tank regularly and i recommend to get a filter for it.

This is for betta fish but you can use it for other fish too but why would you keep a fish in a bowl tha's not a betta? Betta are the only fish that can stay in a bowl: When you first get the fish clean out the bowl (make sure there's no dust or anything). How to clean the bowl the first time: At the first time you need completely new water for the fish. Wipe the bowl and make sure it doesn't have dust, residue, or anything dirty make it super clean and shiny. You'll need to put warmish water into the bowl and add water cleaner so it doesn't harm the fish. You can buy water cleaner from your local pet store (the one you got the fish from). And your bowl is ready to go. Second time cleaning the bowl: Make sure you have a container to put your fish in when you clean the water. It has to be big enough so your fish can swim in it. Now you take just a little bit of the old water and keep it for the bowl after. Okay, now you take the fish out with a net and put it in a container with water in it. Now you take out the extra water in the bowl that has poop in it and stuff and put it down the sink or something. Then you clean the bowl if you have to and add water wih water cleaner into the bowl. Also leave some room for the old water from the bowl before it was cleaned so the betta doesn't get shocked or anything from the water change. Then, add water cleaner to the bowl again. Now take your fish out of the container with the net and put your fish back to where he was. That's about it. And also after a few weeks change ALL of the water and keep it warmish. If you change the water temperature to cold right away he'll go into shock for the change of temperature! hope I helped :)

A safe way to catch a betta fish to clean its bowl is with a small fish net. A fish net removes some of the fishes natural protective body slime but as long as it is healthy the coating will quickly grow back.

I am no expert, but believe that betas are solitary and prefer to have a fish bowl to themselves.

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