Sadly until now with the help of the internet people still do silly stuff...


Wc with direct tap water, no filter, filter with just one pad(most tank set sold by lfs will only have one pad no medias), wash filter with tap water, they think as long as the fish can fit in the tank it's ok and so on...

Know that the size of their stomach is about the size of their eyeball. This will serve as a good gauge on how much to feed. Some people will feed twice a day, some once a day. If twice a day, need to be mindful of the feeding interval. If feed once a day, can feel a little more. Also depends on your pallet size. You can also choose not to feed it one day a week for it to clear its stomach, or in case of overfeeding. Betta fish are generally hardy, so even if you don't feed them for a few days, they are still good.
