When I was a kid, I loved having goldfish. My mom would bring them home for me from time to time. They kept me happy, and I thought they were pretty. Over the years, better fish have become very popular. It is easy to see why, and that is because they are pretty easy to keep and care for. But everyone that has one should also be sure about how they should be keeping keeping betta fish disease free so that they can live as long as possible.
One of the things that I learned the hard way is that it is important to buy some products to have on hand before a fish gets sick. This is because you could easily find out they’re sick when their symptoms are really strong, without realizing they have been ill for days. Then, if you need to find a particular product at a store and they do not have exactly what you need in stock or you need to buy something via mail order, it may be too late. I always tell everyone to buy what you need so that you do not run into this problem and you can begin treating your fish the moment you know there is an issue.
Most people who have bettas find that keeping their small tank clean at all times is enough to ward off any trouble, and they do not have any problems. But sometimes the bettas come down with a parasitic or fungal infection. People sometimes notice it when they find their fish floating down near the bottom of their tank, instead of swimming freely around as normal. Other people might notice it when the fins or scales look like they have something cloudy on them. Taking the time to read up and learn about these things is really helpful.
