Changing water in Betta fish tank: Dechlorinating the water and transferring the Betta fish?
Asked By Ûµ catâ„¢ Ûµ feels like purrin,Last Answer By natkk At 2010.01,1 Answers

If I leave the replacement water out for 24 hours before changing the water in the Betta's bowl, is it still necessary to add water conditioner (detoxifies chlorine, ammonia, etc)? I know that at least the replacement water will be room temp, but I'm wondering if letting the water sit for 24 hours will cause any chlorine to evaporate. Also, can you add water conditioner to the bowl when the Betta fish is in it?

How do you transfer a Betta fish from the bowl/tank to a temporary container while changing the water? I've read conflicting advice. Is it better to use a fish net to transfer the Betta to a temporary container or is it preferrable to scoop the Betta & some water out of its tank with a small container?

Thanks for any help.

Betta fish: Is it okay to remove my betta from his tank with my hand instead of a net?
Asked By Ûµ catâ„¢ Ûµ feels like purrin,Last Answer By Stephanie L At 2010.01,1 Answers

When I need to clean the tank, my betta fish is really hard to catch with the soft net since he swims wildly about when he sees it. But tonight, instead of using the net, I put my hand in the tank and scooped him up right away without a fight (I cupped my other hand over him so he wouldn't fall out of my hand.

So is there anything wrong with using my hand to catch my betta rather than using a net? He is the only fish in the tank.

Putting a new Betta fish in a ten gallon tank alone??!?
Asked By PLEASESAVEHOMELESSANIMALS,Last Answer By JC At 2011.04,1 Answers

My ten gal had ich and all the fish died so I boiled the gravel and kept an inch of the old

water to help cycle the tank faster(along with bacteria starter) (the inch worth of water disentangle have ich in it because I raised the temp for a week). I pit a new filter cartridge in and already have bacteria and some old fish poop which cycled my tank. Ph is 7.4 and is alkaline. The tank is filled with regular conditioned water and Betta water(that brand stuff... I got it cuz I have reLly high ph were I live). Going to get my water tested at petsmart tomorrow to see if o can get a Betta. Also my filter is a little strong, is there anyway to slow it? I'm gonna have a Betta in there.. Can I add a shrimp? I got fresh new decorations but kept the same tank heater and filter. Also do you guys have any Betta names? Hopefully I can get my little guy tomorrow!

What kind of live plant should I put in my tank? (With a Betta fish)?
Asked By Judgerz,Last Answer By Sarah K At 2010.01,1 Answers

I am slowly setting up a 2.5 gallon tank which will eventually probably have a Betta in it. I know I want to plant something in it, but I'm not sure what right now. The tank is going to have a desert/Egyptian theme, so in my mind I'm imagining some kind of fern or a leafy plant like an Amazon sword. The plant should be low maintenance. I don't mind adding some special substrate under the gravel or something, but it shouldn't be a full-time job.

What other fish can I put with a male betta fish?
Asked By What was that!?,Last Answer By Dark Angel Rogue At 2010.01,1 Answers

I would love to hear any kind of fish, but I would prefer fish that are reasonably clean and easy to take care of like the betta is. My tank (now) has more than enough room for almost any fish.

I already know that male bettas do not go together, and I know that species releated to bettas cannot go together. Also, dont say none, I know they can live with other fish, I have seen it before.

When fishing for salmon are you allowed to clean the fish of the fish eggs then throw fish back in water?
Asked By gussie,Last Answer By caunltd At 2011.03,1 Answers

My grand kids and I were walking the rails and saw some men salmon fishing.One had a plastic bag of fish eggs.He made no secret of it and answered the kids questions.He told them that when he catches the salmon if someone wants the "meat" of the fish he gives that to that person and he keeps the eggs.He said if no one ants the "meat" he releases the fish.I don't know if he told us the truth or not.The reason I am asking is that on our walk we saw quite a few fish carcasses that had been completely cleaned out and the head and the outer "skin" was thrown back in the creek.I'm from Ontario, Canada if that makes a difference.

Anyone feel the same as I do about Betta fish?
Asked By Pairah Normel,Last Answer By alvin189 At 03.10,2 Answers

I've always felt sorry for them, just floating there with their fins drooping, faded in color and stationary in a tiny bowl. When I say anything about how sad they look, I get some jackass in my face about how they're from asia and they like little teeny ponds, you can't put them with other fish, this is how they're happy, etc.

I looked this up. Turns out I was right, Betta fish loving being enclosed in a tiny space is a myth thought up by petstores and fish dealers. They are found in huge bodies of water with colors 10x as vibrant, with other fish, etc. The tiny puddle thought process originated from the fact that they can jump from puddle to puddle to get somewhere.

Now I just see miserable fish every time I see them. What a wasted life for a little innocent fish that wants to swim. Does ANYONE look at Bettas and feel sorry for them? Did anyone else know they're not actually supposed to be cooped up like that?
