Betta Roundtail

$25.00
Color

Colors may vary per individual.

Often mistaken for a female betta or a Delta. The fin shape is round, rather than the straight edges of a Delta. Longer fins than a Plakat.

  • 5 gallons is recommended, 2.5 is the absolute minimum.
  • Smaller tanks are more work, requiring increased maintenance.
  • No bowls. Those are for eating cereal out of!
  • Betta fish are jumpers, always secure a lid on your tank.
  • Don’t restrict access to the water’s surface, or fill your tank to its maximum capacity.
  • Betta fish need natural day and night light cycles.
  • Tank mates are tricky, research before adding other species.
  • Never place 2 males, or a male and female in the same tank unless breeding.
  • Females can live together in a “sorority” of 5 or more.
  • Maintain a tropical habitat at 76-81 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Betta fish prefer water in the pH range of 6.5-7.5.
  • Ammonia should ideally be zero parts per million (ppm).
  • Nitrate should be less than 40 parts per million (ppm).
  • Nitrite should ideally be zero parts per million (ppm).
  • Use water conditioner/dechlorinator to make tap water safe for bettas.
  • Use an aquarium thermometer to monitor your tank’s temperature.
  • Filter’s reduce ammonia, nitrate and nitrite levels, and preserve healthy bacteria.
  • Avoid drastic changes in water temperature and water quality.
  • Use test strips to monitor water parameters.
