Tetra Betta Bubble Betta Bowl - .5 gal.
Ratings & Reviews
Not suitable for anything but a plant
by Betta Justice
This is not suitable for anything except a plant to live in. A betta fish needs AT LEAST a 2.5 gallon aquarium (but they do better in 5+ gallons.). They also need a filter (unless you do very frequent water changes) and a heater.
Way too small!
While I do admire the aesthetics of this fancy bowl, it is far too small for a betta to live a comfortable, healthy life. They are a tropical fish and require water temperatures of 76-80°F, and you cannot safely heat a water volume so small. The temperature has the potential to fluctuate far too much. Even if you live in a warm climate that would keep the water at the desired temperature, the tank is just plain too small for a betta.
<br>Give your fish some room to swim and you'll find they have very bright personalities and will enjoy every bit of space you provide. A five gallon all to themselves will do the trick, ten gallons is even better. You will also have more room to decorate ;)
