Betta Fish Tank

Betta, also known as Siamese Fighting Fish, are ideal pets for Singaporeans since they require relatively less equipment. Firstly, they are labyrinth fish and can gulp oxygen from the air. Hence, theoretically they can survive without a filter. Filter is still good to purify the water from excessive nitrates.

However, to put them in a small fishbowl is too extreme (though they may still live) and will lead to shortened lifespan and an unhappy Betta fish.

Online, many sources say that a 5 gallon tank will be a good fit for Betta. 5 gallon is roughly 18.9 litres.

Hence, this “Ripples Premium Aquarium Glass Fish Tank (with Filter and LED Lights) 18.9L” is a perfect fit for a Betta fish. Buying from Qoo10 is also convenient for those without a car, as taking a fish tank around in public transport is highly inconvenient.

This Qoo10 aquarium shop Fins and Paws is very good; I experienced the fastest ever delivery time with them (ordered and delivered the next day).

For those who want an even bigger tank, you can try out the Classica ECO 60 Aquarium Fish Tank. Your Betta fish will definitely feel like a king in this fish tank, and you can add more fish to keep the Betta fish company. (Note that there can only be a maximum of 1 Male Betta fish in the tank, as they will fight each other to the death if put in the same tank.) For suitable Betta tank mates, check out this website: ModestFish.

It is good to have some substrate on the floor of the tank (e.g. sand, gravel, soil). This is especially so if you want to grow some real aquatic plants. For a 18.9 litre tank, 3L of Aqua Gro Aquarium Soil will cover the base nicely to a suitable depth.

Where to buy Betta Fish

To buy the Betta Fish itself, you can check out Iven Betta. They have won many awards for Betta Fish breeding, currently they are located at KAP Mall, 9 King Albert Park #02-15. (Note: do call/message them before going if you live very far. The last time I went on Saturday 7pm, they were closed though their official hours states that they should be open from 1pm-8pm.)

For a cheaper option, check out Polyart Clementi (open 24 hours!). While not exactly show-quality, the Male Bettas there are decent quality and cost only $4 (correct as of Jan 2019). They even have Nemo Betta and Crowntails selling for $4!

My Betta Community Tank

My personal 5 Gallon Betta Community Tank consists of: 1 Male Betta (Delta/Super Delta), 2 Amano Shrimp, and 1 Zebra Snail. Currently, the Betta is quite friendly/indifferent to the shrimp, they are coexisting peacefully for the time being. I do have a few aquatic plants for the shrimp to hide if necessary. The Betta is bought from Polyart Clementi at just $4.
