• BETTA • BETTA • BETTA • Let’s explore all things betta today. Stick around and we might even debunk a myth or two;) ~~Originating in Thailand, Betta fish could be found in rice paddy farms, swamps, wetlands, and shallow ponds. These bodies of water may be shallow but they span many miles giving the fish plenty of room to swim! During dry seasons majority of the Bettas will die off due to over crowding, poor water quality, and inadequate food supply. When the water levels rise back to normal fallen leaves and plants provide a natural filtration system making the water quality pristine. And just in case you were wondering... YES, Bettas are anabantoids, which means they can breathe atmospheric air using a unique organ called the labyrinth when water oxygen levels are low. (They have gills as well, but how cool is that organ!!?) ~~ ~~Did you know Betta fish are tropical freshwater fish? This means they like warmer temperatures ranging from the mid 70’s to mid 80’s. They can survive in room temperature waters, but their life span will be shortened due to lethargy and stress!~~ ~~Betta fish can live without a filter in their tank, but having a filter provides more pristine water conditions. So if you want your sweet Betta to live longer and have more coloration you should consider putting a filter on their tank~~ ~~Speaking of tanks!!! Betta fish need 2.5 gallons of water or more to swim and explore! What’s the saying? “The more the merrier”? Well when it comes to the amount of water for them to swim around in... always go with more! They are much happier with room to roam and they love finding places to hide. Think about adding some plants and maybe even a figurine or two to make your Betta feel more at home!~~ If you found these tips helpful please like and share this post, tag us in pictures of your Betta, and comment down below if you have any questions ! 🐠🐟 I’ll be back next week for another Tank Tuesday!! (Ps- the tank in the picture does not have a Betta fish. But if you’re wondering what two gallons looks like... well here ya go!) #fishtanktips #tanktiptuesday #onetankatatime #fishofinstagram #happyfishpetsitting #savanastips
