Our 160 tanks offer a variety of species, including arrowanas, cichlids, angels, discus, piranhas, plecos, sharks, stingrays, loaches, guppies, platies, swordfish, goldfish, and many more, as well as a great selection of aquatic plants to create new depth and colour into your aquarium.

2. Betta Care in a Bowl

General Information: The Betta originated from Thailand, and lived in rice paddies, swamps, and other wetlands. Betta fish are part of the Labrynth fish family (family of fish that have an organ that permits them to breathe air), this is why the Betta may be kept in a bowl without aeration. This does not mean that they do not use their gills to breathe, nor does mean that a filter is not a good idea to aerate and filter the water. It does mean that a Betta can happily live out its lifespan of 2 to 4 years in a non aerated non filtered bowl when appropriate care is provided for this type of an environment. Download full PDF here.
