I have 10 litre tank and I only have one betta fish a little hammock and a honeycomb house inside. But now my honey comb house is really bubbly because I always left the light on and I'm only 9 years old so how am I supposed to know.sorry I don't agree, my betta is in a 100 gallon tank now, coming out of a 15 gallon tank, and it was funny to see, how he reacted at the space he got, and how happy he was. I think, a betta deserves a lot better as living in such a small half a gallon tank. And I really don't say everyone has to get a 100 gallon tank for his fish, but a little space to swim en spread its finns and tail it really shoud have, its a fish, and fish do like to swim, and for that, they just need some space.If you are only 9 years old yet smart enough to write this post then it shows you are smart enough to ask your mom or dad to get you a good betta book so that you can take the very best of care for your fish by reading it well. Then if you have any questions you can always ask someone. But if you do that make sure they know what they are talking about. Stay away from Petco and Walmart and stores like that because even though they sell fish they really don't know much about them and only care about the money each fish can bring them. In fact, I would not buy ANY fish from them. Here is a picture of one of my fish from Ebay-{here you will also need to know who you are dealing with}. As he got older the blue spread out into his fins. This fish is known as a Over Half Moon or OHM Rosetail. These types of fish need extra care. They definitely need a beta hammock, nothing sharp in the tank, and space to move around in. All betta with similar fins need this. I do water changes like this: every 2 to 3 days I do partial changes up to 50% of the water. When I do this I siphon all the poopy off the bottom. I then fill the tank back up WITH SAME TEMPERATURE water using Betta Ultimate water conditioner. Now, you may only be 9 but I believe you can take of your little friend the right way. But it is up to you to learn how. Okay?What hasn’t changed over the decades of domestication and selective breeding is the betta’s fondness for warmer tropical water. Water at around 77 – 80 degrees Fahrenheit (25 Celsius) is perfect for your betta fish. A gentle filter can be favored to simulate the soft currents of the slow running streams bettas originate from. Filters can also help keep the tank water fresh but unlike the needs of many tropical fish the filter is not a necessity to oxygenate to the water. Just like any other fish, bettas breathe by taking in oxygen from the water but they also have an organ called a labyrinth bladder. This additional organ means the betta fish can get the essential oxygen from the water’s surface. Studies have shown that this organ must be used from time to time so it is vital that your fish tank / aquarium possesses a space for air at the top for your fish to come to the surface and breathe.
