Are betta fish easy to take care of?

Yes, betta fish are easy to take care of. Bettas are naturally hardy and easier to take care of compared to other fish. However, they still require care and attention to live a long and healthy life.

Make sure to provide your bettas with the following:

  • Ample swimming space – a 5-gallon tank is the minimum
  • Plenty of plants, shade, and hiding spots
  • A well-balanced diet of specialized betta pellets, freeze-dried grubs, and small insects
  • Regular water changes – at least twice a week
  • Comfortable water temperature at 75–80 degrees Fahrenheit (23.5–26.5 degrees Celsius)
  • Adequate light and dark periods to maintain a healthy sleep pattern
  • A 10-minute play session each day
