The Fish Bowl Guide
  • Every four – five days pour 2/3 of the bowl water into a clean plastic container.

  • Using a net, carefully transfer the betta into the plastic container.

  • Discard the remaining fish bowl water.

  • Rinse the bowl and gravel with lukewarm tap water.

  • Fill the bowl 1/3 full with fresh lukewarm tap water (approximately 75°F (24°C)).

  • Add a water conditioner to the bowl.

  • Using a net, put the betta back into the bowl.

  • Carefully pour the bowl water (in the plastic container) back into the fish bowl.

You are done! Don’t fill to the rim of the bowl. This will give your betta a greater surface area to breathe.

  • Bettas prefer a constant temperature in their environment. Any temperature between 75°F-82°F (24°C-28°C) is suitable as long as it changes less than 2° in 24 hours. Small heaters are available for aquariums in rooms that fluctuate in temperature.

  • Never use glass cleaner or other household chemicals to clean your bowl. They are toxic to your fish!
