A lot more colourful and interesting than the humble goldfish, these hardy aquatic jewels originate from the paddy fields of Thailand.
Progressively bred by aquarist’s over the years these fish are now ocasionally available in a stunning variety of colour and form.
Although they can survive in a relatively small amount of water, Betta’s should always be given a good sized tank with gentle aeration and a freedom from sharp objects (Betta’s are weak swimmers and dislike strong currents, and they can easily damage deilcate fins on sharp rock or gravel).
We keep our Betta’s at 26 centigrade in mature water conditioned with Ocean Nutrition Atisons Betta Spa. Like all tropical fish, Betta’s benefit from a large routine water change.
Betta’s are generally hardy fish if kept in the correct conditions. They make amiable pets and have even been known to recognize and respond only to the person feeding them.
They should be fed sparingly on a varied diet with ocasional live food as a treat. Brine shrimp and frozen bloodworms along with proprietory Betta food makes a good choice.
This Betta has been quarantined and is feeding well. Buyer MUST collect from NN11 (near Daventry). £10, a heatpack can be provided if you need one.
