just in case you plan to keep your betta in a vase or something, I'll give you a little info. tank size: 2.5 gal+++ cleaning:gravel vacume once a week or just stir it up and let the filter pick it up. do 25% weelk water changes. feeding: betta bio-gold pellets, frozen or freeze-dried bloodworms and brine shrimp. tankmates: 2-5 gals, shrimp and snails. 10 gals, a small school of tetras, shrimp, snails or a divided betta tank. treating diseases: ICH: small white spots form all over the body or on the fins, this is a parasite that can easily be treated with a med like "ICK away" or simular. finrot: the fins literally begin to rot, aqurium salt or mela/pimafix. fungus: the fish has fuzzy white area's on its body or fins, treat with "ICK AWAY" or another fungus killer. housing: real or silk plants are good, bettas love to play in them. caves or other hiding/sleeping places, make sure there isn't anything sharp in the tank, bettas are like little kids, they explore everything ;) always give your bettas a heater and/or filter, if you dont have a filter do daily small water changes. lifespan: if taken care of properly, 5+ years, bettas in the wild live 8+ years. but because of how they are treated in stores and in homes(vases, bowls ECT.) they have short lives. my oldest betta was 8(from a good line of bettas from thailand). GOOD LUCK!! http://www.aquabid.com has beautiful bettas.
