What is a Betta Fish?
Betta Fish have the scientific name of Betta splendens, and are also known as Siamese Fighting Fish. The Betta originated in Thailand and has been selectively bred for a long period of time in that country as well as in Southeast Asia.
Does a Betta Fish need a filter?
There are different schools of thought as to whether a Betta Fish requires a filter and heater. Many people keep their Betta in a large fish bowl or tank without any type of filtration. Unlike other commonly kept aquarium fish, the Betta does not need a filter to breathe. Nature has equipped the Betta with a labyrinth organ that allows them to get oxygen from the air above the surface of the water. If you do decide to use a filter in your Betta tank, make sure that the current from the filter is not too strong. Bettas detest the moving water that filtration creates, and a strong current can negatively affect their health.
How do I care for the Fish Clock?
You should clean your Fish Clock on a weekly basis. Seasoned Betta owners will do a partial water change, removing around 20 to 30 percent of the water. It is not advisable to change all of the water at once, as the shock can kill your Betta.
Can I keep more than one Betta in the Fish Clock?
Betta Fish can be extremely territorial and aggressive, especially with their own species. There is a reason why they can be called “Siamese Fighting Fish.” Only one Betta Fish should be kept in the Fish Clock.
Will the Betta fish get stuck in the clock movement?
Our patented design makes the clock safe for the fish, so it will not be disturbed by the clock movement. Don’t worry, there is 0% chance of the fish being touched by the movement.
