Because of their hardiness, betta fish don't require that much in terms of care....if you can feed them regularly, then your siamese fighting fish will do fine. A little food, and with cleaning out the water on a weekly or bi-weekly basis is really all you need to keep your betta fish happy.
Why do people like Betta Fish?
In fact, the siamese fighting fish comes in all colors, opaque, cellophane (transparent), red, royal blue, purple, and many more. Virtually all colors are represented with these fish, which is one of the reasons why so many people love them. Each fish is unique in its own way!
Yes, it is true...never put two males together in the same tank. If you do, you can expect a fight on your hands! In fact, something like a mirror can spark a response known as "flaring", in which the betta will puff its tail out...it may even try to attack!
