Betta Care: Playing With Your Betta

Whaaaa-a-aaaaat? Playing with your Betta fish? That’s unheard of! Nope. No, it’s not. It’s really simple and fun! Here are a few ways that you can play with your Betta pal:

These are just a few ways to play and entertain both yourself and your Betta. It’s a great way to bond and it’s really fun! If anything clearly stresses your fish out, stop doing as it can become harmful. Be mindful about what you put into the tank, and avoid anything that can break apart and be consumed by your Betta. 

If you decide to include food in your play-time with your fish, you might want to cut down on how much you give him during feeding time in order to prevent over feeding.

Betta Care: More Than One Betta

Alright, so maybe you’ve decided that you want to get more than one Betta, but don’t know what do to or don’t know how to approach the idea. Well, if you’ve done your research prior to purchasing your first Betta, then you should know that they have been dubbed “Siamese Fighting Fish.” True to their names, they will fight each other. Well, the males that is. 

If you stick two male Betta fish in the same tank, one of them will become the Alpha fish and harass the other Betta to death (VIA chasing and fin nipping). This is super stressful for both of the males. 

As for the females, you can have female Betta fish together, but only in schools of five or more. For the first day or two, there will be fin nipping and chasing around the tank, but this is just the females establishing their pecking order. Once the hierarchy has been established, things will calm down in the tank. Make sure that the tank is plenty big with a lot of hiding places for the females to hide in.

But if you do feel the need to own more than one male, make sure that you keep them in separate containers. If you want to keep them in the same tank and the tank is big enough, then you need to get a divider to keep them separate. I don’t know much about this, since I’ve never had two males in a same tank with a divider. Just make sure that the divided tank has enough space for both males so that they can live comfortably and not feel cramped.
