Betta Varieties

Siamese Fighting Fish

These fishes are  beautiful, richly colored, require relatively little space. They have long trailing fins. Colors range from red to blue to white. They are known as Siamese fighting fish because male betta's have a tendency to fight one another over territory, usually to the death of one. So it is safer to keep Betta males seperately.

I have recently installed a 4 ft fish tank with curved glass. It was placed in a place where nearby window's reflection falls on the glass and disturbs view. Any solution?

A1: 

Dear sir, instead of having a variety of fishes who shares different habitats, one should lay more emphasis on the ecosystem of the aquarium. Your fish tank is relatively small and therefore just 4-5 goldfishes including one black moor (from feng-shui point of view)without including koi or angels. Change water after at least 3-4 weeks time (use good filters and O2 pump) and feed less pallets to fishes. Add prescribed amount of anti-fungals and please add little bit of salt at the time of changing water/cleaning the tank.
