Is it normal for a Betta fish to sit still at the top of the bowl?

yes it is fine yes

Of course. Some bettas just like to laze around.

If you'd like your betta to be more active, show him a mirror once a day for no more than 5 minutes, any longer than that and you may stress your fish.

Betta fish can be kept in either a tank or a bowl.

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

If you want a fish bowl fish I recommend a betta fish but, none do.

A betta fish is the only fish that can stay in a bowl :) hope I helped :)

the betta fish is a very beautiful fish but maybe put them in a seperate bowl for awhile.

a betta bowl is about 12-15 inches in length and about the same in height

No that means your fish is depressed or feeling sick search betta sicknesses to see if she matches the symptoms. Remember your betta must come up for air, if she doesn't that could be trouble

If the fish is still getting used to it's surroundings, it might not eat. This is normal. Usually if betta fish are comfortable, they will eat as soon as they smell or see the food.

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

A normal life span for a Betta splendens is around 5 years. A Betta in a bowl will last about half that time if you are lucky. The basic rule for keeping fish successfully is 1 inch of fish needs 1 gallon of water. Although it is common practice to do so with Bettas. No fish will appreciate or enjoy being kept in a tiny container like a fish bowl.

The best candidates are Betta fish and Paradise Gouramis

No and do not even attempt to breed Betta fish unless you know exactly what you are doing.

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

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

It most likely means that he/she is sick because that is what happened to my betta fish. make sure you don't overfeed your betta fish because it can lead to constipation and that will cause trouble for the betta fish

No, you cannot put two Betta fish in the same bowl. They are dangerous to one another, and will attack each other and eventually will kill each other

it depends on how small the bowl is betta fish usually dont grow larger then 3 or 4 inches

cos there bored in the bowl

No, not really. A small fish bowl will do just fine.

none unless you want to be super cruel

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

Any plant that is not aquarium safe should not be placed with a betta
