Hello! In case anyone is new here, I am a freshman at Western Illinois University where I study zoology. I moved in on August 19th of this year, but my pet fish also accompanied me on this new journey. My pet's name is Crush and he is a male betta fish who is just shy of his first birthday. While moving into my new (temporary) home for the year, the inner animal lover inside of me was anxious to get Crush back into his tank. Crush lives in a spacious five and a half gallon tank with a filter, heater, plenty of places to hide, and two snails. After successfully moving into my dorm, and getting Crush moved into his home as well, I began to socialize with the other ladies on my floor. While going from room to room meeting others, I couldn't help but notice a theme of fish bowls housing either a betta fish or a goldfish. While I understand most people want their room to feel more like 'home' by adding (what seems like) a simple pet to their dorm, most people fail to realize the reality of caring for a 'simple' fish. So what's wrong with housing a betta fish in a common one-gallon bowl (or any improper set up)?

However there are some things all betta owners need to know, and like all pets, betta fish deserve to be cared for properly in order to live long, healthy and happy lives.
