    Default Home for my Betta's

    Betta Home
    I have a beautiful long finned Blue Betta ( Siamese fighting fish ) male and 2 brilliantly coloured female Betta's in a community tank and they have been happy for more than 12 months now.

    I would say my 84 Gallon tank has a steady current due to the filters but the Betta's can swim anywhere within the tank quite freely .

    I would like to ask about a nest sight ,
    1. can you get them specifically for Betta's
    2. are they worth the trouble
    3. will it enhance the fishes life or create problems
    4. If the answer is yes , should I get more Females ( Lucky fellow )

    I have a lot less flow at one end of my tank due to the plant life and the filter pump directions , but it still appears to be to strong for a bubble nest.

    Advice please

    I cut the bottom off a clean styrofoam noodle cup, so that it was just a ring. I floated that in a corner of my aquarium and it gives a nice ring of still water for them to nestbuild in.

    I made one that was quite fancy for my gouramis that i just threw out yesterday. I took styrofoam and made a 3x3 square (measuring from inside of styrofoam). It had open top and open bottom. Then to the bottom of each strip of styrofoam i siliconed a clear plastic piece vertically to make it more private and prevent water flow from disturbing nest.
