4. Create a hostile environment

Betta fish with the most common error imposed on the new owners and naive is a hostile environment. The most common errors are Hickey placed with another couple or a tank blast, and the development of men with men, and men with women.

It may seem cold to put the shark's tail with a red or luxurious Grand Gobi BETTA but that is not compatible with the welfare of each of these species. All shark species tend to be aggressive and dominant in the environment, especially as they age, and often fantasy Gobi incite tension and aggression brutal macho BETTA grand attack them because they believe that these fish enjoyed by men of the same species. There is a long list of species that should not be placed with magnificent BETTA both sexes, but there is a long list of species that are often very well with this type BETTA so long as his personality and the aggressive nature of the individual type not clash. Like all animals, it is important to do research before you buy and build community.

As for the friend Gorgeous betta fish species in B., is never a good idea to hold more than a group of women students together were called nothing. Even then, there may be serious consequences if the student does not fit or is made by the owner with experience and / or knowledge to limited success. However, the common errors that still occur even though the nature of the battle and put the male in the tank is divided evenly. Some people mistakenly believe that the purchase of two non-aggressive males produce BETTA Gorgeous happy with just one or two bursts battle between now and then if nothing happened at all.


This is not true. No matter if the fish does not turn on each other in the store, not attack each other before, and seems interested in other or the same group of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia raised together since birth. Instinct is instinct. Gorgeous Gorgeous BETTA BETTA will be against the man. They are known as fighting fish or fighters for a reason. Very territorial, and this type of fish trying to scare people, and ultimately, it will go into the blood if they feel there is no way out. Yes, the wild man can meet and flares and one or falling even duel weak briefly before admitting defeat and swim away.

This does not mean that wild fish behavior standard proportions pets to celebrate. On the one hand, the actual magnificent wild betta can be no further because the descendants of unwanted animals released into local water short fins and colleague with their wild cousins, and make logical comparisons. Two, in the natural environment and space that allows space betta fish to escape and limited the fall. Home aquarium with two men BETTA magnificent, regardless of the extent of coverage or a particular space, equivalent to the creation of a steel cage match to the death.

Finally, and most common, is a wrong many owners to be naive man with a female housing effort. There is a serious misunderstanding Gorgeous male Betta can live with the student if a tank large enough and provide enough hiding places. Often this misconception supported the claim that women in the group of men and defend against attacks and / or livestock. This idea not only require women to attack the man to the line, but it also means that men should be less aggressive than the group of dominant females. Not only very stressful for all concerned fish situation is unrealistic and based on the wrong place.

In the best case, the owner found the man not aggressive, they showed great interest in interesting women and little interest from non-aggressive women, it has shown in provoking. What will happen from time to time one of these farms unplanned or sudden aggression that may illuminate after a period of time due to the accumulated pressure. In the agricultural scenario, men try to fight against women try to devour the fertilized eggs and the female will try to attack the man to keep him away.

Other women may also try to eat eggs, because eggs are a source of protein and it is not uncommon for a woman eggs of others or their own eating. In the case of the effects of the prisoner who was separated from all men and women shortly after vaccination and put the eggs in separate fried eggs hatching. In this case there is no deliberate safe place and one of the fish in question and aggression will produce the best cuts, and death at worst. There is also an added responsibility of caring for up to 500 of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. In the case of tension erupted suddenly, the man who drew previously, and that females can bite each other or start fighting. Fins and biting can cause injury and infection spreading the disease or bacteria to the injured party, and depending on what disease or incurring bacterial, and possibly the entire community. Battle can cause more serious injury with the same result or dead fish. There are cases of men and women living in peace side by side for years until instinct kicks or cause regional tension and aggression results in a sudden explosion and the death of a regrettable but inevitable amount.

The owner that put men and women together to achieve these selfish ends. Even if each fish against all odds can be rare exceptions to the rule unusual, and the risks far outweigh the benefits. In fact, in addition to a convenient arrangement for the owner, there is no benefit to be derived from such a scenario. There is no benefit to any type of fish involved, but the danger of explosion raised the possibility of subjecting a natural instinct in a resident with serious consequences.

5. discomfort zone: adapt deprivation


Maybe he had decided month or a desire to run, but you are in the pet fish that target the new screen BETTA perfect addition to your family tents. You can find the perfect type of fins, color perfect. This little beauty is all that you have been looking for and more love at first sight! But when you bring home a new friend you realize that you are at the bottom of the tank not swim. He said he can swim erratically and start panting. Its magnificent fin clamp shut and put it in the bottom of the tank as if dead. But it sounded good health and lives in a pet store, what happened?

This vision behavior often brings the same question in the minds of the new owners. They wonder if their sick animals or secretly caught the disease from his journey from the store to their homes. Other people may fall into the myth that the environment is higher, the new betta fish was confirmed, making the dead. Often, the new owners of diving in the world Betta fish without making a lot of research beforehand. Some things are basic. After all, how many fish needs can not figure out when to go? Most of the time, and even taking into account any explanation. In fact, the sudden change in behavior usually come with one of two options.

The first option is that this is actually normal behavior BETTA fish. It is not uncommon for Betta fish are stressed at this stage, and you need some time to adjust to the new environment. BETTA some fish take up to a week before you start swimming, eating normally, and they need time to feel safe from predators in their new environment. More general answer for this behavior, especially if it is a strange swimming or heavy breathing, and the second possibility: the fish are not used to their new home.

Unlike mammals, Betta fish are unable to maintain its own degree of body temperature. They are cold-blooded. This means that the environment will directly affect the internal heat of your body to its environment and the need to maintain a healthy degree of heat to allow these animals evolved. This also means that it is very dangerous to switch rapidly from one temperature degree of another suddenly without first adaptation. Adapting a way to slowly adjust to the environment or conditions of temperature and water in case of Betta fish.

Holding a cup of cold water for 10 minutes is a way to adapt the fish to a new degree water temperature.

Betta fish submerged in fresh water before allowing them to identify changes in the conditions of temperature and water and not only harmful to the animals directly, but parents can also be fatal. Must have greatly diminished the fish from the water to the really hot cold water, for example, you can go to shock and possibly death if the temperature is too high. Even a few degrees can be enough to surprise the fish, so it is important for new fish to sit in a bag or a cup is placed in the new water for 10 minutes at least. Betta fish adapt to the water situation is no less important to address changes in water temperature. Although water may seem obvious, and chemicals containing water differ much from the source to the water source.

Chances are that a small amount of water stored betta fish stores usually highly polluted with chemicals that may be invisible ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, even. Each of these chemicals may be necessary to tour the aquarium, but fatal for betta fish are exposed (as described later in this article), especially in a large number of small spaces. Clean, air conditioning and tap water could be better for the fish but to withdraw from directly clean polluted environment can also cause shock. You can avoid these common mistakes by adding water slowly from the old to the new pelvis bags or cups fish amendment now. a betta fish to adapt to new circumstances without extremism, which stimulates the crash, and change is given.

So you or someone you know has decided betta fish takes in life. Maybe this will be a new owner or the fish may be in possession of some time.
