I still remember the first time I saw two beautiful looking fish in a friend’s house. One fish was blue and the other was red, and they were swimming majestically in their fishbowls. That was my first encounter with a fish species known as Betta fish or Betta Splendens or Siamese Fighting Fish (three names that refer to one fish).
Up until today, I’m still keeping a few of them in my house, and they make perfect pet fish for my family. Every member of my family loves them.
Why do I like most about Betta fish, you may ask. Definitely, I have many different reasons, but here are three of them.
1. Betta fish are beautiful pet.
It’s a tropical fish that comes with different colors such as red, blue and yellow. Some Betta fish have more than one color on their bodies. Believe it or not! I can spend hours looking at how Betta fish move in their bowls but even if you don’t know a thing about Betta fish, you will be mesmerized by their colors alone.
2. Betta fish are easy to care.
Betta fish are hardy type of fish and they can live in a small container. A small fishbowl is enough to house one Betta fish, but be aware that two male Betta fish shouldn’t be placed in one container. Or else, these two Betta fish might fight until death (that’s why they are also called Siamese fighting fish).
3. Betta fish are responsive.
If you have a Betta fish in a small fishbowl and you move closer to the fish, you’ll see that your fish will turn its head to look at you. That’s what makes me fall in love with Betta fish. They are responsive to your presence and aware that you are there, unlike many other pet fish.
So, you can now consider if you want to adopt Betta fish as your family pet or for your kids. They are lovable creatures and you will know it immediately one you have a Betta in your house.
