My new Crowntail Betta fish named Pheonix. :D #crowntail #betta #fish #pheonix #bettafish

Hi! Unfortunately this is a really bad home for Phoenix :( Contrary to popular belief, betta do not live in puddles and keeping one in a bowl will lead to its suffering and premature death.
Betta need at least 2.5 gallons to thrive, preferably 5 gallons. Bigger setups are actually easier to maintain!
In a small bowls like this ammonia builds up too fast and will slowly poison and eventually kill your fish. Fish create ammonia when they breathe and poo, and ammonia is toxic to them. Ammonia can’t be seen or smelled - so water can be crystal clear and still toxic to fish. In a container this small you’d have to be doing twice daily water changes to keep ammonia from harming your fish.
Betta are also tropical fish and require a heater! They need to be at water temperatures of 75-80 degrees - room temperature is too cold for them. Cold leaves them lethargic, sickly and open to other problems. But you can’t safely use a heater in a container this small, so again, I urge you to get him a bigger tank!
You won’t regret it - betta can be such personality filled, zippy little fish when given the room to be! Some studies even say they’re just as smart as other animals, and can feel pain the same way. So please don’t let your little guy suffer - get him a better home!

Here’s a cheap 5.5 gallon tank that would be great for your little guy! You just need to also get a heater.

If your not a marine biologist gtfo. Your facts are wrong btw. Its my fish, leave me alone.

So basically what you’re saying is: I don’t give a shit about my fish.
What this person linked and said is all true. I’m sure you didn’t even bother to read everything or click the links. Fish need much more room than you and most of the public think. I suggest listening to kai-ni, otherwise your fish will die in a year or two, and live a miserable life.

Their life span is 2 years, whats your point?

^ That just proved my point. You don’t give a shit about a living being. It depends on you for proper care. Even if it lived a few weeks, it should STILL receive the best care you can give it - which is NOT in a tiny ass bowl with a huge ass plastic plant that can rips it’s fins taking up most of the space.

Bettas can live an upwards of 5 years. I currently have a betta that is going on 5 years. When properly cared for they can live longer. If you don’t want to care for a fish, don’t get a fucking fish. 

Im 90% sure

Help! My betta is turning white? I don’t know if this is bad or if he is just losing color or what, but help quick!

The white looks like it may be marbling, but there’s definitely also some fin rot going on. I would check my water parameters and increase water changes. If it keeps getting worse, you’re going to have to treat him for it. Fin rot progresses fast in halfmoons, so keep a close eye on that hole in his fin!
