Marlyn, please consider housing your betta in a 5 gallon, he looks ill in your photos. Bettas need temperatures between 79-82 F, and a slow moving filter to remove toxins in the water, just like any other fish people keep as pets. I would suggest feeding frozen bloodworms, brine shrimp, and Daphnia, only giving 2 hikari pellets as a treat as they tend to constipate bettas. ultimatebettas site is very useful for helping you to take the best care of your betta because pet stores just aren't truthful when they tell you they live in bowls, bettas can thrive in 15 even 20 gallon tropical aquariums as long as live plants are provided as hiding and resting places.

Hi Marilyn, as this is a pet fish I have removed it from the Global Coral Reef monitoring mission for you.

Moved to the Pets category for you.
