100 pct water change put 1/5 teaspoon of aquarium salt . Ur tank put how many litre of water ? 2L?

Also if u worried at night when u sleep cover the entire rank with a cloth or towel to prevent it from getting too cold because the colder it is the slower it is.

Or it just could be it's the lazy type

If u really worried can just up the water change schedule to change 50 pct every 1 or 2 day
Hmm I never measure how big is the tank. Is those toyish plastic with green top.

When you say cover cloth, total darkness is ok for betta fish???

So by right for betta fish, water change better to change more frequently?

My fish tank about 3L water I change every 2 day. Got 1 Betta only. Some more u got 2. Mine is 18x13x15cm

Ya total darkness ok when at night lah if during day got towel or not also ok.cos night colder mAh geddit

If u have the time and energy I will seriously suggest u to change 50% everyday

. By right is bigger tank u change water less frequently. Eg both tank with 1 betta. One is 4 litre one is 10. 4l tank change once per two days then ten l tank change once per 4 to 5 days. Then 4l tank got two betta ? Change every day

I changed this tank for my granny's betta. I noticed the pump seems to be shooting out water quite strong and pushing the fish. Is such tank and pump not suitable for betta fishes???
Btw, the vent holes are for sucking out???

From personal experience, bettas dont do well in tanks with current. Just have to keep in normal container, no aeration required.

I turned off my pump 1/2 a day cos suspect Betta prefers stiller water
When water is still the Betta will blow bubbles

yes, betta live in paddy rice field area where water are shallow. They dont really need air pump but need consistent water change to ensure no illness get to them.

Or that the constant water movement makes it hard for bubbles to be formed ?

I had the hang on filters and fish was doing fine but with water movements.. then I got worried about not enough aeration so I got a pump with airstone then there was too much water movement I supposed for his liking.. then I removed the filter... sticking only to airstone

That was when the problem start as when I change water, the fin curled..

Now go back to hang on filter without airstone

betta no need scared not enough aeration ba.

anyway iuf fin curl after change water could be due to water condition too different from tank eg temp, so shock=curl
