What is the life span for a Beta fish?
My Beta fish died on Christmas day. My husband rescued him from WalMart. He had been treated very poorly there. Any way he lasted over a year in our home. Today I purchased a young, lively, deep royal blue Beta at PetMart. He is in my 1 gallon vase bowel with live water plant and Stresscoated treated room temperature water. How old can these fish get before they pass away? In the future I am thinking about getting a 5 gallon tank and have a female and male Beta in it. Also is tank gravel recommended for their environment?
