He lives in a 5 gallon tank, has two live amazon sowrd plants (to boost oxygen levels), two plastic plants, a cute nemo whale statue, a betta fish hammock, a regular filter, and a 5 gallon tank heater! Personally when i first bought my betta hammock i thought it would just look cute, but my betta absolutely loves it!! He sleeps on it all night and lays on it most of the day even! My fish has gorgeous purple and red fins and he is always very active. As for food he prefers flakes over the betta fish balls.. However they can make the rocks a little dirtier. I would definitely recommend this type of betta for anyone who wants a fish. I adore my little betta named quinn. :) (i'm getting a snail buddy for him tomorrow to help eat some of the algae in the tank!!!) If you are thinking about getting a betta &ndash; I DEFINITELY recommend at least a 5 gallon tank, a tank size heater, live plants as they do improve water quality, a hammock or something that allows they to lay near the surface as they do in the wild, and a low power filter. :) All of these things will ensure you a happy betta.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2017-08-28</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2017-08-28" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="178600554"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Dumbo Halfmoon Betta" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">When Guinea Pigs Fly</span> from <span itemprop="name">Beautiful and Smart</span> <span itemprop="description">I always though fish were boring.

When I got him his scales were pale and he had slight fin clamp from staying in the cup he was in ( really the only way pet stores can house them because of aggression). after having him in the tank for a while, he changed into a whole other fish. His scales took on a beautiful metallic blue, and his fins are slowly collecting a blue as well. Very happy with this fish. They are great fish for beginners and are beautiful to look at.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2018-01-22</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2018-01-22" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="66431458"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Dumbo Halfmoon Betta" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">serenitynow</span> from <span itemprop="name">Beautiful with Proper Care</span> <span itemprop="description">I bought a male dumbo halfmoon at my local Petsmart. In the store his colors were pale, almost a light salmon color, but when I put him in my tank at home his colors changed to bright red and purple! I read up on this and apparently most bettas are very stressed and unhappy in those little pet store cups, causing them to become inactive and lose their color. Things the pet store won't tell you is that Bettas do not like bowls or vases. A five gallon tank should be the minimum size you consider. Your tank should also be cycled before you buy your fish - fortunately I already knew that, but if you don't know what that is, do an internet search for &quot;fishless cycle&quot;. They also need a heater in a tank that size (they are tropical!), very gentle filtration and *soft* water. I learned a lot from my research, so before you go out and get one, please do your homework so that you will be prepared and your fish will survive, be happy and healthy and not stressed. My betta is beautiful, very active and inquisitive and loves his new home.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2014-10-25</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2014-10-25" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="90322975"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Dumbo Halfmoon Betta" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">kittenmittensAZ</span> from <span itemprop="name">Beautiful new little buddy</span> <span itemprop="description">At first, I was annoyed that they're kept in such tiny containers but then I realized that there's really no other way to display a fish that can be aggressive towards other brightly colored or fan tailed fish. I was at least happy that their cups all seemed very clean and clear and all the fish looked healthy. So far, Petsmart is the only chain pet store I've visited that seems to take care of their bettas. I'll probably return for my next betta. (still annoyed that they promote tiny tanks for them but that's a whole other issue.)</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2015-09-27</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2015-09-27" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="129929467"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Dumbo Halfmoon Betta" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Lulah</span> from <span itemprop="name">Great Fish</span> <span itemprop="description">Petsmart really takes care of their bettas, and I'm happy to see clean water and active swimmers every time I go in! Dumbos are my favorite, they're so vibrant and colorful. Some things to keep in mind when getting a betta fish: - While the fish CAN live in tiny little bowls, they actually thrive in tanks 5 gallons or larger. - Despite many thinking a betta cannot live with other fish, that's simply untrue. While yes, they are aggressive, and you should never house males in the same tanks, a male can live with up to six females. They have also been known to get along with ghost shrimp and other tank cleaners (like snails and glass catfish), so long as there's plenty of room for all animals. If you decide to get shrimp, try getting some of the bigger ones in the tank, as it'd be harder for the betta to try and eat them, and provide live plants and little hiding places for them. - I honestly don't know where this idea came from and why it's so widespread, but you cannot just stick a betta in a vase of water for a plant and assume the two will feed each other. The Betta WILL not survive for very long, they actually need the proper food provided at stores to live.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2016-10-07</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-10-07" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="183339036"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Dumbo Halfmoon Betta" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">1</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Alyssaaaa</span> from <span itemprop="name">Product highlights</span> <span itemprop="description">It's real disappointing to read your product highlights of betta fish environment, it's inaccurate and misleading to those new to caring for betta fish.
