Scientific Name: Betta splendens


Male Bettas are also called Siamese Fighting Fish, and they will usually fight to the death if put in the same bowl, but often they can live together in a large aquarium. We prefer that you not use our Siamese Fighting Fish to fight.

Pet Fish Talk, an MP3 PodCast, is a weekly internet talk show about keeping pet fish, such as tropical fish and goldfish, in aquariums, fish bowls, and ponds. The shows were hosted by the Bailey Brothers, DrTom and Nevin, Click on this image for more information.

Appropriate Home
Only one Male Betta in a large fish bowl alone or with a few Ghost Shrimp, a couple of Aquatic Snails, and some Java Ferns or some Aponogeton plants. We have noticed that sometimes a Male Betta will attack and kill Ghost Shrimp, and sometimes Aquatic Snails will eat Aponogeton plants, but the Aquatic Snails do not seem to have an appetite for the Java Ferns.
We recommend keeping a Betta in a fish bowl that will hold at least one gallon of water. We sell a fish bowl that will hold 1.5 gallons of water. Click here for more about buying a Fish Bowl Kit from us.
Click here for more about keeping fish in large fish bowls.

Bettas usually do fine in a temperature range of 65 to 80 degrees F. But may do best in range of 70 to 75 degrees F. If the water is cool and your Betta is not eating enthusiastically, you should move it's fish bowl to a warmer spot or increase the temperature in the aquarium. You should also be sure the temperature doesn't change too much, too fast. A change of 3 degrees per day usually doesn't cause stress or disease, but a drop from 75 degrees to 65 degrees in one day would not be natural or good for a Betta.

Recommended Diet
Floating Food and Freeze Dried Blood Worms both available in most places that pet fish are sold. Bettas are not an active fish, so they don't require as much oxygen or as much food as energetic active fish do. Feed your Betta twice each day. I feed my Bettas in the morning and in the evening. Be careful not to feed your Bettas more than they will eat. Remove uneaten food with a small net after 10 minutes. Click here for more about feeding fish.
I feed all my Bettas a few Black Worms every other day. Click here for more about Black Worms.


Male Bettas do best in a large Fish bowl with a few Ghost Shrimp and some live plants as mentioned above. Usually White Clouds are compatible with Bettas and can live in a Large Fish Bowl with a Betta, but sometimes the Betta will chase and annoy the White Clouds, and very rarely White Clouds have nipped on a Betta. Click here for more information about White Clouds. Male Bettas can also be kept in aquariums with Platies, Mollies, Swordtails, Angelfish, Danios, Gouramis, a school of Bala Sharks, a school of Clown Loaches, a group of Corydoras Catfish, and a Plecostomus Catfish.

Size and Lifespan
Male Bettas grow to about 3" and live for 2 to 3 years.
Here is an email comment from Bradley, "How old my Betta was. My Betta reached 5 years and 7 months before he died. I kept him by the stove for warmth and he did great."

 About our Fish ...
Almost all the photographs and videos, shown on this web site, were taken by us of our fish in our aquariums.
Compare the healthy, beautiful, energetic fish in our beautiful aquariums to the fish in our competitors pictures. Their fish often look thin with clamped fins and poor color.
We buy the highest quality fish, produced by the best fish farms or caught by the best collectors of wild fish, then we take incredibly good care of our fish in our beautiful aquariums.
If you compare the pictures on this site to our competitors pictures, you can instantly see, our fish and aquariums are better!  ;^ }
Will the fish you get from us look like the fish in our pictures? No! This is similar to buying kittens and puppies that will change as they grow to become cats and dogs.
We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to sell. Not so small that they will not do well when shipped. Yet not so big that they have become much more expensive.
The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the ones we have for sale that we raised up, and you can too!
