Betta fish or Betta splendens are wild fish distributed in Southeast Asia including Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. In addition to their natural environment, they reside in rice fields, ponds, lagoons … generally in all shallow and still water. Suitable temperature for bettas from 27 to 30 degrees C, soft water, neutral pH or slightly acidic. Males often choose well-shielded positions such as in rice bushes, algae or under fallen leaves … to make foam nests and lure females to lay eggs. Each spawning, the female lays hundreds of eggs, eggs hatch after about 1 day. The fry are cared for by the father in the bubble nest for another 3 days until they begin to swim freely and enter independent life.The most popular foods for bettas these days:
1. Dry food (pellets and plates): I often feed bettas to supplement the missing nutrients, because when eating raw foods, some substances may be lacking. Although a betta may be picky eating, if you practice it, it will get used to it
2. Frozen food: I have never tried it, anyone who feeds Betta with frozen food can advise me
3. Fresh food: Includes baby fish, loins, worms, bobo (mainly for baby bettas) … Fresh food is being used by both professional and amateur people because it is cheap. , easy to find and bettas love it too.
4. Other foods (larvae available in water, organic debris …)
