Betta fish in a regular old fish bowl you put a plant in the bowl your question is what type of plant is this and is it a plant that is safe for your Betta I have a pic but the link won't post?

Betta fish need filtered and oxygenated tanks just like other freshwater fish. Pet stores that tell you that Betta fish don't need much room or filtered tanks are either ill-informed or just plain unethical. Too much current flow isn't healthy since Bettas like slow moving water. If you are putting a plant inside a tank with your Betta (and not keeping the Betta in a vase with a plant growing out of the top and the roots growing into the Betta's space), any freshwater fish-friendly plant is good. Just make sure that it is soft so it doesn't damage the Betta's delicate and beautiful fins. Don't put a Betta in a vase with or without a plant growing above it. Also, don't keep them in tight containers or small cups. This practice is cruel and inhumane!

Do you need to use a light to warm the fish bowl for Betta fish?

How do you tell if my betta fish is suffering?

Well betta fish cannot be in tap water. It's like poison to them. They have to have treated water. I found out my betta was suffering when he wouldn't eat anything. Betta like to be out in the open so they can see movement and action. The living room is a good place.

Can a betta fish live in 3 quarters of a gallon fish bowl?

Yes, but this is very cruel. All fish need room to swim and to grow and although people have successfully kept bettas in tiny containers, this doesn't mean it is right. Also, bettas are anabantoids, which means they need to breath air, so they need a decent amount of surface where they can go to breathe. if you want a betta, go for at least a 2 gallon tank - the fish will be much happier, more active and more colourful.

Why is the male betta fish not fighting the other male betta fish?

What kind of fish can be put with the betta fish?

If your tank is large enough, some types of fish can live with a betta, but not another male or female betta because they will fight with a male and kill a female. If your betta seems aggressive when you add fish, then he will need to live alone, so don't try too many at once. Also, some other types of fish will attack a betta's fins: other long-finned fish, most barbs, and some tetras will not live peacefully with them. Also, aggressive fish will harm and probably kill them and fast moving fish will make them nervous. Goldfish are also not good companions for any tropical fish, especially one that needs such warm water. So, if you have enough room, the best companions for a betta are smaller livebearers, such as guppies and platys.
