Choosing The Right Size Tank Recommendation For Your Betta Fish

Choosing The Right Size Tank It is very important to choose the right home for your betta fish. Bettas can live in shallow water, but that doesn't mean that they should live in a betta bowl. There are a lot of different vases, bowls, and small tanks made to hold your betta on the market.

Some of these containers, in my opinion, are more like decorations or works of art than places to keep your new pet. Some betta bowls can only hold 8-12 oz. of water before the decorations are added.

The main problem with these tiny containers is that they are hard to store and move. First, if the housing is small, you will have to change the water and do maintenance more often. Second, the betta fish does need space to swim. Even though betta live in shallow water, that doesn't mean they don't have a shallow rice paddy the size of a football field to swim around in. So a bigger, shallower tank will make the betta fish happier.

And the longer he will be able to live without stress. So, you might be wondering, Does this mean I need to buy a 150-gallon aquarium with all the bells and whistles to house my betta and spend a lot of money? No, I wouldn't keep your betta fish in a bowl. Instead, you should buy a real fish tank that holds between 2.5 and 10 gallons of water. I think you should start with a 10-gallon aquarium if you want to try to breed your betta or add other fish.
