Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. For new aquariums, adding new fish slowly helps properly develop the nitrogen cycle, creating a safe environment for your aquatic pets. A bacteria booster may also help develop a new aquarium for your new fish. Makemyhobby offers water testing kits online to determine if your water is safe.
DIET: A well-balanced Betta diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried blood worms, and frozen food.
FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller, unfiltered aquariums.
