Do Bettas like to play?
Bettas love to play with things at the surface of the water, and a good and cheap toy to stimulate your Bettas inquisitive nature is a common ping ball. These can be purchased very cheaply and are very easy to introduce. Your Betta will quickly be found swimming into it and moving it around the tank.
Do betta fish get bored?
If you’ve got your betta in a tank which isn’t stimulating enough then he will certainly get bored. If you’ve got your betta in a small tank with no decoration, feeding him the same food every day with no change in his environment then he can quickly become bored.
Can I touch my betta fish?
A betta fish should not be touched; it may get spooked and respond by biting you or becoming afraid of you (which would undo any training and playing you’ve been doing to get it used to you). Touching a fish can also affect the natural slime coating by removing it and if this happens, the fish is vulnerable to disease.
Do Bettas like music?
Though betta fish might be indifferent to any kind of music that you play, it would be preferable to play something that is very soft and soothing. Hard rock and metal music might be avoided as it might produce strong vibrations that could irritate the betta fish.
Do betta fish play dead?
Yeah, this is pretty normal with bettas. Most bettas play dead for attention and sometimes they do it for a bit. Like my fish, he played dead for about 30 minutes. If you see this and it doesn’t move for a while then check if they’re breathing or moving they’re fins at all.
What is the rarest Betta color?
Purple. Purple bettas are one of the rarest colors, and if you find one it will probably be the most expensive betta fish you could buy. True purple bettas are almost unheard of. Many fish have purple colors shading to blue, red or lavender.
How do I know my betta is happy?
The signs of a happy, healthy, and relaxed betta include:
- Strong, vibrant colors.
- Fins are held open, but not taut, allowing their fins to billow and fold in the water.
- Feeds readily.
- Active, smooth swimming movements.
What do Bettas like in their tank?
Your Betta will love swimming in a tank which contains caves to hide in and plants that provide plenty shady areas. And if you’re going to use fake plants, don’t use plastic ones, use silk plants. Live plants are always good because they’ll help clean the water and provide your Betta with a natural environment.
Do betta fish like moss balls?
Do bettas like Marimo moss balls? Betta fish simply love Marimo moss balls! Watch your pet when you first add the moss ball to his tank. The ball will float on the surface of the water until it takes on enough water to sink to the bottom.
Do betta fish love their owners?

Do Bettas like light?
