Betta Myths Debunked
Bettas are one of the most commonly kept fish in the world. They are low maintenance, come in many colors and shapes, and have a lot of personality. But there are also a lot of myths about their care being spread around that I’d like to take the time to talk about. I’ll cover as many as I can think of.
Bettas need more care than most pet stores will admit. They need at least 5 gallons (2.5 MINIMUM), even with a filter you need to do weekly water changes, a reliable tank heater, a lid, and a varied diet of good quality food (not just pellets or flakes). There’s a lot of details that go into caring for a fish like this- they’re not as low maintenance as people make them out to be. So PLEASE do your research before you buy a betta! If you have one, be sure to do your research so you know how to care for it properly!
