What is the best water temperature for a betta fish?
In the wild, betta fish live in tropical areas. So when you keep bettas in an aquarium at home, they’ll still need the warm water habitat that they’re used to. In fact, they have a pretty narrow ideal temperature range – the most optimal being 78-80º F (s25. 5-26.5º C).
Is 70 degrees too cold for a betta?
70 degrees fahrenheit is okay, 72 (room temperature) to 78 degrees is the ideal range. Below 68 and above 80 will stress Bettas.
Do bettas like light?
Bettas like light so that they know when to wake up and prefer a darker environment to sleep in. You may have an aquarium light on your tank and if so, it is probably best for you to turn this on when you wake up in the morning and turn it off just before bedtime.
