Beta fish and other “air breathers” are very popular types of fish. They are pretty, easy to care for, don’t require a lot of space, and they don’t need to have any sort of additional filter/air supply. These fish make excellent pets for children, as they are fun to watch and simple to look after. They just need food, an occasional water change, and, of course, a lot of love. These are also wonderful pets for a busy adult, as they don’t mind being left alone all day, and there is something so relaxing about watching fish swim through the water.
If you are going to purchase a beta, it’s important to do some research and find out how best to care for one. Though they are easy to look after, they do need proper care. If your new fish is to be a pet for your children, have them look up the information with you, as this will be a great way for them to learn all about their new pet and what he needs. This will help them to give their fish the best possible care, and will help them feel a sense of responsibility towards their new pet.
Beta fish don’t require a lot of space, and as long as there is adequate fresh air, they can be perfectly happy living in a large glass jar. These jars can be made very pretty if you place some colored gravel on the bottom and include a small artificial plant for the fish to hide behind. As long as the jar isn’t too crowded, a beta fish can live a long and happy life and give it’s owner enjoyment for a long time to come.
A beta jar should be large, made of transparent, colorless glass and have a cover that lets air in. A really fun idea for a beta jar is to have one that has been custom printed with a pretty design on one side, leaving the other side blank so you can easily see the fish. You can go for a really elegant look and have the words Betta splendens (the scientific name for a beta fish) printed on the side. If your beta is to be a pet for your children, then a fun option would be to have the name of the fish printed on the side of the jar. Kids love this, and they’ll be proud to be able to give their new friend such a nice home.
One thing to keep in mind when selecting the jar for your fish is the jar needs to be large enough to give the beta lots of room to move around, and that it also needs to easy to clean. A large, custom printed glass jar is an ideal choice, as your fish will have plenty of space and their shape makes them easy to keep your fish’s home clean.
If you are looking for a pet that is pretty, easy to look after and fun to watch, then a beta fish is an excellent choice. These fish come in a wide variety of gorgeous colors and breeds and are sure to make the perfect companion for you.
