A betta in a bowl or vase is a living environment for your desktop and among aquarium fish a betta is one of the ones which is relatively easy to care for. Your fish will do best out of direct sunlight, but try to keep him in a warm place.
Betta Care Instructions:
- Keep your bowl or vase full of water allowing 1″ to 1 1/2″of air space between the water surface and the decorative stones supporting the plant. Your Betta needs a small amount of air space to breathe.
- Use a water treatment to remove the chlorine from the tap water before adding room temperature water to the vase.
- We recommend feeding your betta once a day. They are meat-eating fish and will do well on freeze-dried blood worms or brine shrimp. Only feed what your betta will eat in 3 minutes. Uneaten food should not remain in the vase, as it will just float to the bottom and rot, creating an unhealthy environment for your betta.
- You will need to clean the water in the bowl or vase if the water becomes cloudy due to algae or excess fish food, this cleaning may need to be done as often as twice each week. Carefully pour out the water, leaving about 1/3 of the water and the fish in the vase. Wipe the inside of the vase with a clean, dry paper towel. Add de-chlorinated room temperature water.
