I have been a proud owner of 6 betta fish for a year now, and between the 6 of them, my fish have given me many challenges, e.g. rotting tail, tailing biting, etc., that may qualify me as Umbra's FishHotel aquarium reviewer more than other reviewers here. Thus, I recommend that you stay away from this product.
As a betta beginner, I used to house my fish in this aquarium. It was all fine and dandy for the first month. Then, my bettas started bitting their tails, got their tails infected, and just stayed in one place, not swimming around happily like they used to. Worried, I researched and tried everything to fix the problems, from changing the water more often to give them live food. Nothing worked until I put each of them in a 2.5-gallon tank with heater and slow filter. The 2.5-gallon was big enough to put more plants and a couple of wooden logs for hiding places for my bettas. Now they are truly happy and I hardly have to do anything except for feeding them.
The lesson that I learned was that this aquarium is just TOO SMALL for a betta.
Amazon's dimension for the white case is accurate that it's a 7.5" wide x 7.5" deep x 8" high, but notice that the glass bowl is 1" shorter, which barely gives a betta a gallon of water to live in. Since it's too small, your betta will only survive in it and develop bad habits and will not thrive in his environment. Kinda like you and me, we can survive living in a small room if we're fed properly, but we won't thrive and live to our maximum longevity without enough room for exercise and entertainment.
Yes, entertainment/discovery.Read more ›
I give it 4-stars because it has no lid, I had to fashion one from clear, hard plastic.
That disappointment aside, it's a neat fish box. Everyone loves looking at it at work. And it holds a gallon of water perfectly-which is a nice amount of a betta (you really don't want less than that).
All in all, I'm quite happy with it. Now I just need to find a couch for my fish and we're set :)
I can assure you that almost everything that you know about bettas is probably a lie. There's a lot of misinformation about bettas out there, and a shocking amount of people who believe that all bettas need to survive is a small bowl of water, some food, and a water change once a month. Did you know, with the proper care, Betta fish can live up to 5-7 years? Wow! That's way longer than the general thought 1-2 year lifespan, isn't it? They truly are amazing creatures.
Speaking of myths- did you know the belief that they prefer small spaces and dirty water is also false? You see, if you're looking into getting a betta, the smallest tank you should go for is about two and a half gallons, but trust me on this- go for a five gallon. Your fish will come alive with so much personality- I myself just upgraded my boy Pepper from his 2.5 to a 5 gallon and let me tell you- he has never been zippier. He's constantly exploring and moving, it's a lot of fun to watch him :) But he would never be able to move like that in something as small as this bowl :( Instead he would probably sit on the bottom and perhaps tailbite out of frustration.
As for the dirty water myth- if your water is visibly dirty, then it is actually burning the fish. You see, when fish breathe and waste, they create ammonia in the water, which is toxic to them.Read more ›
