Caring For Betta Fish - White Spot

White spot (also known as Ich) is one of the most common diseases that all aquarium fish are subject to including betta fish. White spot is a single-celled parasite organism, which propels itself through the water through use of cilia, or filament-like hairs until it finds a host to live on. This parasite lives under the top layer of scales and skin on your betta fish, eating skin cells, causing the white spots which are the basis for the parasite’s name. White spot is usually introduced to your tank when adding new fish or plants so be sure you only ever buy healthy fish from a reputable, clean breeder.

Caring For Your Betta Fish - What Water To Use

What is the best water to use in your betta fish tank?

Some people refuse to believe it but the best water to use in your betta fish tank is tap water. Bottled water and distilled water has been “purified” and does not have the minerals that your Betta fish needs. If your tap water is so bad that you do not even drink it, than use spring water. Tap water or spring water, follow the directions below:

1) Find out if your local tap water is treated with chloramines and if it is you will need AmQuel from the pet store.

2) Pre treat the water with a product called “stress coat” according to the directions. (You can find “stress coat” at your local pet store too)

3) Once the water is treated according to package directions, let it sit in an open container for up to a week, which allows all of the chemicals and gasses to evaporate and for the pH in the water to normalize.

See, caring for your betta fish and its water is not hard!

If you care for you betta fish at all do not buy a fish tank for it this small!!

Giving betta fish Prozac?

Giving betta fish Prozac?

I was surprised to see a story about betta fish on the “Advances in Physiology Education” website. It seems male betta fish are “an attractive model for the study of aggressive behavior” and the study finds that in the male Betta splendens given Prozac, that the small dose of Prozac was “sufficient to reduce the expression of specific aggressive behaviors”. Here is the webpage---->
