There are so many different types of Betta fish for you to purchase. Many of these fish are very beautiful and full of life. As a Betta enthusiast, it would be a good idea for you to learn all the facts about Betta fish that you can. This will not only ensure that you have lots of knowledge in the topic, but it will help you care for your Beta effectively.

Betas are known as Siamese fighter fish. They are very aggressive around other fish, so they quickly become competitors in fish fights. These fights were brutal, and in my opinion, unethical. Thankfully, these fights are now a thing of the past, and people everywhere can enjoy owning their own Beta. With over 50 species to choose from, your options are great.

These fish come from a warm climate. So if you live in North Dakota or any other cold state, you should invest in a quality water heater. Water heaters will allow your fish to explore their natural habitat without fear or worry of death. These items can be picked up for less than $100. But if you’re like me, you will probably get the best quality for your Betta.

Food is another thing that you should consider when caring for a Beta. You see, these guys are not big eaters. They can go several days without food, and be happy in the process. With that being said, I suggest that you only feed them a few times a week. This will increase their lifespan and keep them happy for years to come.

Do you like teaching your pets to do tricks? If so, you will greatly enjoy your Beta because they can do all sorts of tricks. You can teach them to jump for their food. This is something that you will be able to see all over the internet. Many of these videos are freely available at YouTube.com. Your Betta can also perform dances that are very beautiful.

Accessorizing your fish tank is a great way to give them something to do. If you like teaching them tricks, you’ll love watching them play. If you purchase a mirror, you can watch them puff out their fins in order to intimidate their reflection. This is really cool. There truly are many different things that you can learn about Betta fish. I suggest that you keep doing some research on the topic, or maybe pick up a guide to show you more.
