How many gallons do betta fish need?
Betta fish don't even think about goldfish they need 10 gallons each. If your bowl is bigger than 1 gallon a betta will do fine. Below 1 gallon get a ghost shrimp or snail
the only fish that can go in a 1 gallon tank is a single male betta. many people put gold fish, but goldfish actually need a minimum of 20 gallons
of course you do you need the fish to have WATER because every fish in the world needs water so the betta fish needs it to,to live so the betta fish does need a FILTER
One gallon is really just too small for any type of fish, but 2.5 gallons or more would be great for a betta fish.
Fish will eat as much as you put in the water. If your Betta is in a bowl and isn't very active you don't need to feed it very much. If your Betta fish is in a tank larger than 10 gallons and the fish swims around than you should slowly feed it the amount it can eat in 2-3 minutes once or twice a day.
No, you need a 10 gallon aquarium. Bettas should not be kept in bowls at all. 2.5 gallons is the minimum.
Betta fish can be kept in either a tank or a bowl.
That is entirely up to you. Whichever fish you get you will need similar things. The differences are. A Goldfish is a coldwater fish. It will need a larger tank and filter than a Betta because it grows into a much larger fish (around 10 inches). A Betta is a tropical fish and so it will need a heater as well as a filter. The same basic rules apply. The basic rules of sucessfull fishkeeping… Read More
Nothing. The smallest size that's OK for a fish is 5 gallons and that's only for a betta. Any other fish need much more room. In a one gallon, you can put plants and some snails, but not much more.
A small fish bowl should be fine for one betta fish.
Betta fish live in water that is 20 or 22 degree C.I know so because I have my own Betta fish.
if you have betta pellets, then you need to feed them 3 pellets once a day
I would say 14 gallons if you want a long life for that fish But generally 1 inch of fish= 2 gallons
I don't recommend it. Mollies can get larger than a Betta (Siamese Fighting Fish) and be far more bullish than a Betta. A Betta could easily get beaten up by Mollies! Mollies need a minimum of 20 US gallons anyway.
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.
Provided the tank is large enough for both creatures you could try but it is possible that the Betta will rip the legs of the shrimp. To keep them successfully you will need a minimum of 3 gallons of water for the Betta and another 2 gallons for the shrimp, a filter, a heater/thermostat and a thermometer. So a (nominal) 5 gallon tank (which will only contain at most 4 gallons) is way too small.
The simple answer is yes provided you have a large enough tank. A Betta needs at least 2 gallons (3 gallons is better) and depending on the species of gourami you could need a 30 gallon tank for some species. The basic rule is :1 inch of fish needs a minimum of 1 gallon of water, a permanantly running filter, and at least 50% water changed every week.
It is best that all fish have a filter besides Betta fish. Betta fish don't need filters cause the filter pushes them over with their big fins. Goldfish should have a filter on there tank because they are often overfed. If you have a filter you won't have to change the water as often. The only fish that shouldn't have a filer in captivity are Betta fish.
Follow the 1 inch per gallon rule, for every ince the fish is long, that is how many gallons the fish needs to live in. If you wish to get a neon tetra (2 inches) you could have 1, but a tetra is a schooling fish and needs to be kept in groups of 5 to 6. You may want to consider a betta fish, you could have 3 females in the tank or 1… Read More
in order for a betta to live with glo fish there needs to be at least 6 glo fish. they also need to be in the tank for at least an hour before the betta is put in the tank.
No. Frogs do not belong in any water containing fish. Frogs need a vivarium. Bettas need a minimum 2 gallons of good, clean, well filtered water without piles of frog poo poluting it.
This is a BIG NO NO!! Bettas need at least 2.5 gallons of water to themselves, and if you put a male and a female together, it will most likely result with you have two dead bettas. Keep your boy and girl in separate 2.5 gallon heated tanks.
Betta fish are born in Asia and do not need a filter to live! Just clean their tank once a week.
No they don't i had Betta fish for 2 years and never used a heater to breed them.
You should feed your betta fish about 6 days a week, and never too much food. An overfed betta is an unhealthy one
Something must be wrong if your Betta is not eating. Check which of the following you are not doing. Bettas are tropical fish and need their water to be heated to around 78F. A minimum sized container for a single male should hold at least 3 gallons of water and a cycled filter should be running 24/7. Given the above necessary conditions the Betta should eat OK. If you are missing out on the requirements… Read More

Is it safe to have 3 Goldfish in a 1 gallon bowl I went to my local pet store the owner told me that is was safe to have 3 of the common goldfish in my 1 gallon bowl they seem to be fine Safe?
This is absolutely not safe. A fancy goldfish needs 20 gallons on it's own, with an additional 10 gallons for each fish added; that would mean that you need a 40 gallon tank for 3 fancy goldfish. Common (single-tail) goldfish grow very long, and due to this they need at least 30 gallons for one fish, with an additional 15 gallons for each common fish added; that would mean that you need a 65 gallon… Read More
No, Betta fish are well adapted to living in low oxygen environments. An air pump can be used, but not required.
A betta fish needs fresh water, and needs half of it changed once every 7 days.
no it dosent
fish who don't need filters Guppies don't need a filter. Betta fish can live without a filter.
A one gallon tank can have 1 betta fish as it is not enough water for any other type of fish. Although fish like neon tetras are small, they are a schooling fish and need to be kept with at least 5 to 6, which would require at least a 10 gallon tank. You can buy betta fish setups that come with everything you would need for the one fish at a reasonable price.
No. if so the betta will kill the other fish, even the other fish being a betta. Not true... Goldfish will nibble on their lovely fins but I've seen Beta's get along ok with Cories, also little Neon Tetras. By the way, female bettas can only be together to mate, even after mating the male may kill the female. While bettas can live in harmony with other fish, and be fine in a five gallon… Read More
Betta Fish do sleep,but not like People. They don't need a lot of rest. Bettas stop moving and their eyes DO NOT close when they Sleep.
Only if you're ok with it dying in a few days. A goldfish needs a minimum of 10 gallons to itself, preferably 20, to allow them for room to grow as well as to account for the amount of waste they produce. They can grow fairly large and are considered messy fish, so they need room and plenty of filtering. A betta fish bowl wouldn't allow for any of those things.
Is it good when your betta fish's bowl is cloudy and has little bits of things in it I heard that is was?
Whoever told you that is either a lier or a total idiot. Water to any fish is exactly what air is to people. It provides the oxygen that we need in order to live. The cleaner it is the better it is. Betta experts recommend a 10 gallon tank for a Betta. These (often badly abused) fish should never be in an aquarium containing less than a minimum of 3 gallons of water. They also… Read More
food/water/warm temperature The Betta is a tropical fish and needs to be kept at around 78F to 80F so a heater/thermostat is neccessary. All fish need to have a filter running too.

Male betta fish can be housed in both bowls and aquarium. In order to thrive though they need the proper lighting and filtration.
No, they can live alone or with other female bettas. They might bite each other but won't kill.
Betta fish do not require a specific light over top their tank or bowl, and are fine with ambient room lighting. However, to see your fish's colors fully you will need a light.

Betta fish have been found to live for up to three years in the right conditions, but few in home aquariums will live anywhere near this long. You may have heard Betta fish referred to as "Siamese Fighting Fish." This is because male Betta are extremely aggressive towards one another and will fight. They have been known to flare up upon seeing their own reflections so as to intimidate what they perceive as another Betta… Read More
No, not really. A small fish bowl will do just fine.
Females can be. Males need to live one Betta to the tank - you can have other fish in with him, but no other bettas, other anabantids, or any other long-finned fish.
It is absolutely ok to have a lamp by the betta fish tank, just make sure its not on 24/7, as fish need dark and light periods to function normally.
