A Betta fish can make a great pet even if you don’t have a lot of time or space to spare. These beautiful fish are easy to care for and may live for several years. The Male Halfmoon King Betta is a unique live Betta fish with a half moon tail and large body. You may be a little limited on time or space, but you can still experience the joy of a pet in your life. Unlike many other live fish for sale that need a lot of space, this live Betta fish can thrive in just a gallon of water. You can set up a small aquarium on your desk at work, on a counter in your home or even a small dorm room. The Male Halfmoon King Betta doesn’t even need a tank with a filter as long as you clean the tank and replace the water regularly. Another reason that live Betta fish make great pets, is because they are beautiful to look at. Bettas come in a variety of vivid colors and are known for their flowing fins and tails. The Male Halfmoon King Betta is a unique type of Betta. As its name says, this Betta has a tail shaped like a half moon. A King Betta also has a larger body and shorter fins than other types of Bettas. When he perceives a threat, he will flare his fins to look more imposing. Bettas have another special feature that sets them apart from other live fish for sale. The Betta possesses a labyrinth organ that allows it to breathe from the surface. Bettas will regularly swim to the surface of their aquarium to take a gulp of fresh air. Male Bettas may even make little bubbles if water conditions are ideal. When considering a live fish for sale, be aware that Bettas can feel stressed or threatened when living with other fish. It is recommended that Bettas be kept alone in an aquarium with plants and minimal current. Please note that supplies, like an aquarium, food and water conditioner, are sold separately.
Countless species of fish are kept at home as pets
While that bit of history might paint a brutal picture, the modern female live betta fish has a more community-minded temperament and will generally share a tank with other female bettas and non-aggressive fish. Male betta fish are another story, however. While they can also live successfully in community tanks, a male should never be placed in an aquarium with another betta (male or female), as it will reawaken that old fighting spirit. Two or more live betta fish in one tank will become aggressive and combat each other – often to the death – to determine which betta is the alpha. Pet parents who want to pick up multiple betta fish for sale are strongly urged to keep them in separate tanks.
Where Can You Find Bettas For Sale Online
I live in Abilene Texas and have been constantly checking out your female bettas for sale in aquabid. I used to keep several bettas, but I had to give them away when I moved here, tanks and all. So the last betta I got was a lovely steel heart-tail female, and I kept her in my dad’s community aquarium.
His fish killed her.
So I have been reluctant to buy any other bettas of late.
However, I have recently acquired and cleaned up a fairly nice three-gallon tank, and am currently setting it up to house a betta.
You can expect me to be purchasing a female girly to be my new roomate soon.^^
On another note, however, that dark pastel gal on aquabid right now is truly stunning, and I hope she finds a good home.^^
