Bettas, also known as Fighters, are small, colorful tropical fish native to Southeast Asia. Here is some key information about these fascinating little fish:

  1. Size and Habitat: Bettas are small fish, generally 5 to 7 centimeters in length. In the wild, they are native to rice fields, ditches, and small stagnant waters.

  2. Water conditions: They prefer warm water, with an ideal temperature between 24 and 28 degrees Celsius. A slightly acidic to neutral pH (6.0 to 7.5) is recommended, as well as soft to moderately hard water.

  3. Behavior : Bettas are known for their territorial behavior, especially males. They can be aggressive towards other male Bettas, which has led to their nickname "Fighters." It is often best to keep only one male Betta per aquarium, unless the aquarium is large enough and arranged to avoid confrontations.

  4. Aquarium environment: A small to medium sized aquarium with plants, hiding places and an open surface for breathing. Bettas are also known to breathe air at the surface, with their maze, so make sure they have easy access to the surface.

  5. Food : Bettas are predators that feed on small insects, larvae and crustaceans in the wild. In captivity, they readily accept flake foods, specific Betta pellets, and live or frozen foods.

In summary, Bettas are vibrant, attractive fish that can be kept successfully in small to medium-sized aquariums, provided the water parameters and environment are suited to their specific needs.
