Can betta fish live in a bowl?

As bettas are small fish, many new betta fish keepers often think that they can be kept in very tiny bowls. This isn’t true. In order to live a long, healthy life, betta fish should be given plenty of space to swim around.

Being kept in small containers with no filtration and poor water quality can make betta fish stressed and unhealthy. Also, bowls are often uncovered, which can lead to your betta fish jumping out when you’re not looking!

We recommend keeping your betta in a rectangular tank of at least 2.5 gallons. Cover the tank with a lid, include a place for your betta fish to hide (e.g. a cave or leafy plant) and install a filter.
