A White Dragon King Crown Betta(r/interestingasfuck)

Another betta picture hits /r/all! And no one else has already said it, so I guess it’s my turn.

  • As others have pointed out, yes, this is photoshopped. I prefer the original myself.

  • Bettas are great pets, ESPECIALLY when housed correctly. That shitty tiny bowl at the pet store? Not a proper tank for a betta. Pet stores LIE TO YOU so people will keep buying shitty, tiny tanks and bettas when their current betta dies. It’s not in their interest for you to be smart, do research, and invest in a decent setup, because then you’ll have a healthy fish for several years and won’t be spending money replacing everything.

  • Bettas really do best in at least a 5-gallon tank, but 2.5 gallons is considered the minimum.

  • Bettas are tropical fish. THEY MUST HAVE A HEATER. Problem is, heaters for tanks that small are notoriously fickle. You don’t want fish soup, after all. I used this heater for my boys and their 5-gallon tanks.

  • All fish tanks need a filter, otherwise you have to commit to changing AND treating 50%-100% of the water in the tank EVERY DAY. It’s a pain, trust me.

  • You MUST dechlorinate water before adding it to the tank, otherwise your fish will die. It’ll be a bottle called dechlorinator or water conditioner.

  • Get a water test kit. Don’t bitch about it, just do it. It’s kind of fun, actually. Test your water levels once or twice a week. If your fish get sick, this is the first thing /r/bettas and /r/aquariums will ask about. People will judge you if you don’t have this already.

  • Bettas are best kept as solitary fish. If you want to keep a betta in a tank with other fish, you’ll need at least a 20-gallon tank and probably the advice of /r/aquriums for stocking.

  • Yes, you or your friend has/had a betta that was playful and active for four years in a shitty, 3oz vase with a bamboo plant on top that you stuck in a cabinet and only fed once a week and never changed the water. I don’t care. You were doing it wrong and you should feel bad. People get mad if you stick a dog in a closet, never let it out, and never clean up the shit that accumluates in there, but somehow if it’s a fish it’s ok. It’s not. Fish aren’t as smart as dogs, but they are still living creatures that deserve to be treated well.

  • Yes, the pet stores keep bettas in cups and overstock their fishtanks, but those are temporary situations, and every morning I promise you they have to throw away a bunch of dead fish. Corporate doesn’t care.

  • While I’m here, goldfish are meant to grow up and be huge, gorgeous poop machines. They need a 30-gallon tank MINIMUM with appropriate filtration. Your goldfish died from a combination of suffocating in its own shit and internal organ failure from stunted growth. Sorry.
