Little did I know when I picked up my first Betta Fish that it would lead to me getting four more, as well as convincing my boyfriend to get one, complete with a five gallon, filtered tank.
This goes to show how fun these little fish are. Even though they need to be kept alone, they make up for it with their beautiful fins and big personality. Mine have been very bold, always begging for food and eager to explore new objects when I clean their tank.
They've been incredibly easy to care for-- mine are housed in heated 3-5 gallon aquariums, and the water quality is always good. There is such a noticeable difference when they are housed in heated tanks- rather thank a half dead, floating fish, they're active and fun to watch. It's a shame that they're sold in little cups of water.
