Betta Fish Care Sheet & Supplies

4 things to know about your betta

  • Bettas can live up to 3 years
  • They grow up to 3 inches long
  • Bettas can sometimes live with other peaceful community fish. However, you should only have one male or female betta in a tank without dividers and be prepared to remove the betta if they show signs of aggression towards other fish.
  • Bettas gulp air from the surface of their tank.

How do I set up my betta’s tank?

Bettas need an aquarium with a filter that is at least three gallons. Set up their new home at least one day before they arrive.

Tong’s Tropical Fish Pet and Supplies

Ok, this place isnt perfect but despite that I would recommend this place to anyone who lives around the downtown area.

First of all a big plus would be the PARKING! You all know what I’m talking about. Parking around downtown LA / westlake/ silverlake areas can be such a pain that I often just give up and do something else.

Tong’s is located conveniently off the 110 freeway and is close to Exposition park. It’s in a big plaza where you have ample parking . The area is a bit shabby but it’s worth the trip here since it’s convenience.

When you go inside you will see rows and rows of freshwater tanks. Unfortunately they do not have salt water, but if you are looking for an interesting variety of freshwater fish Tongs should do the trick.

In terms of selection they have everything. They have all sorts of exotic fish , and have some crazy BIG MONSTER FISH  in the tanks in the back. The staff there are all trained and helpful , and can give you recommendation in regards to which fish will get along with your current tank or if you are starting a new one.
