Betta Bowls – Should I Get a Bigger Betta Tank?

April 13, 2010

Betta Bowls – Should I Get a Bigger Betta Tank ?
By Elizabeth Christopher

Betta bowls and pet stores go hand in hand. Fish stores can pack a lot of fish in a small area when they put them in these tiny betta bowls. But is this really a suitable betta tank? Think of it like this. How would you like to live in a ten foot by ten foot room with little air circulation, and no furniture, TV, computer, etc.? That is just how your fish feels. He can live in a small bowl, but his lifespan will be shortened, and he will never be all that he can be.

Betta bowls are often the only home a betta sees, because the person purchasing figures that the pet store must know what they are doing. “Why should I have to purchase a larger, more expensive betta tank when the professionals at the store house them in small round bowls?” you think. Well believe me, if they could get away with that with all their fish, they would.

The only reason all the fish in the store are in tanks instead of betta bowls is that most fish require water circulation to supply oxygen. Betta fish have a labyrinth organ in their head which allows them to exist in a habitat which has almost no air/water mixture. They can even survive an extended time out of the water entirely! Because of this ability, betta bowls end up being the way that the fish are housed, because it is the least expensive option possible.

Look at a betta the next time you see one in a tiny, cramped bowl. He is hardly moving, is dark in color, and looks lifeless. Now, watch one in a betta tank. If you do not know where to see one, go to YouTube and nose around until you see one in a nice five or 10 gallon betta tank. He is alert, his colors are more vivid, he appears healthier, he is interacting with his environment. He looks like a much more alive fish!

This is because he is more alive. The more stimuli you supply a betta fish, the more his personality grows. He will even start to recognize you as separate from other people. The experience he receives from his move to a bigger betta tank will actually help extend his lifespan, as well. In thanks for saving him from one of those tiny betta bowls, he will supply you with years of pleasure.

What is the Perfect Betta Tank? Fulfill These 4 Requirements For a Happy, Healthy Betta

March 8, 2010

As you look around the pet store, you see plastic one gallon bowls, a betta tank that is curved in the front, some that are ten gallon, and all sizes and types in between. So why so many choices? What is the right betta tank for you? Let’s look at what the betta requires, and then we can make a selection from there.

Betta tank selection is generally made by the owner according to what THEY want, not what the FISH wants! This is backwards. If you want your fish to have a shorter lifespan than he could have, and live a less than full existence, then by all means choose whatever looks good to you. But if you want to provide your fish with the perfect betta aquarium according to his needs, then read on.

Your betta requires…

1 – A Low Wide Betta Tank

Bettas live in very shallow water. Purchasing a betta tank that is deeper than it is wide is a waste, he will never use all that space at the top. And it is harder for you to clean as well. Purchase a wide low tank, a ten gallon aquarium is perfect. There are tanks called “bow front tanks” that make ideal betta tanks.

2 – Very Little Room, Comparatively

Bettas can live a long, healthy, happy life in a betta house as small as two or three gallons. I personally use nothing less than a five gallon tank, and prefer ten gallons for maximum betta comfort. These larger tanks are also much easier to use, and attaching heaters and filters will not take up too much room. There is also ample room to add betta tankmates, plants and other “furniture”.

3 – 78 to 82 Degree Water

This means that a home that is too small for a heater is no good. It has to be big enough to house a heater that can keep him at a comfy 80 degrees or so. This also means a filter to move the water so there are no hot and cold spots.

4 – Fog and Scratch-Free Walls

Your betta wants to watch you. He wants to play with you, and perform for you, and he can not do that if he can not see through the walls of his tank. Besides, you want to see him and his betta tank in all their splendor. Choose glass or acrylic over plastic, because they will not fog up, get cloudy or scratch over time.

That’s it. Five gallon and up, low and wide, glass or acrylic and heated are the requirements for the perfect betta tank.

Betta Bowls, Betta Tank, Betta Aquarium or Betta Vase – I Am Confused!

February 6, 2010

Super! You have found a beautiful Betta Fish at the local pet store, and you want to rescue him from a life in a tiny betta vase. Good for you! But where do you start? I mean, the pet-store employee told you they can live just fine in a tiny betta vase, even with a betta plant taking up most of the room. They tell you that in the wild, these Betta Splendens can even live in a horse’s hoof print. If that is true, why should you worry about purchasing a Betta Aquarium instead of letting him live in his tiny betta vase?

Let me put it to you this way; you could live just fine in a ten foot by ten foot room, but you would not live nearly as long, and not nearly as rich a life as you do now. See what I mean? Let’s take a look at some different options, and find just the right Betta House for your new finned friend.

Betta Vase

Doesn’t it look too small?

Betta in Betta Vase - Does this fish look  happy or healthy?A betta vase is fine … if you want to raise a lethargic, unhealthy fish and shorten his lifespan by a few years. It is true that because of the labyrinth organ in a betta’s head, they can live in small amounts of sub-standard quality betta water with little air circulation. But that does not mean they should!

(Look at Walter in the betta vase above. Does he look happy or healthy? Now compare him to a similar male betta in the pic below that is being raised in a 10 gal. betta aquarium. Huge difference.)

Betta Bowls

If these are no good, why does the pet store use them?

(Look at the betta bowl in this pic. The betta is so embarrassed he is hiding!)

Betta Bowls offer the same negatives as betta vases, Betta bowls are easy to clean, sure, and they do not take up much space, but you probably purchased your betta to watch him swim, and ineract with his environment. You are definitely not getting that with one of the many betta bowls being marketed.

Refer to the above reasons in the betta vase example for examples of why you don’t want to buy a betta bowl.

Betta Tank (Betta Aquarium)

Now we’re talking!

Here we go!

(Look how vibrant and healthy this betta is! Not to mention the entire betta tank experience is more visually pleasing!)

There are lots of “betta aquarium” choices out there. They offer plenty of room for growth, adding a betta plant or two, and adding betta substrate (flooring), a heater and filter. The betta temperature can be controlled in a betta tank (one of the leading causes of betta stress is a cold tank), and water quality can now be monitored and effectively cycled.

Try not to go below 3 gallons. I personally recommend a 5 gallon betta aquarium at least, and personally use nothing smaller than a ten gallon betta tank. The benefits of choosing a betta aquarium (tank) are many :

1 – Better betta water quality
Because you can now add a filter, betta water quality can be monitored and kept at an optimal level in a 5 or 10 gallon betta tank.

2 – Betta temperature
The perfect betta temperature is between 78 and 82 degrees, with 80 being ideal. Betta heaters are inexpensive and effective. (Your betta will live longer and much healthier just because of this one simple addition!)

3 – Substrate (Tank flooring)
Substrate plays an important role in the filtering, and “good bacteria” process. Having a larger area for gravel, sand, etc. allows for a cleaner, healthier betta tank.


(The only Betta Care guide I recommend.)

“Outstanding Betta Care E-course by a 25 year betta care professional. Covers bettas every step of the way from tank selection, to fish selection, to caring, breeding, and disease treatment. If this had been around when I started raising bettas, it would have saved me thousands of dollars, not to mention saved many fish’s lives. Highly recommended.”
