Gifts For Betta Lovers

No self-respecting Betta will turn down bloodworms. However, few owners have a constant supply of them. Give your friend a gift their fish will truly relish. Frozen or freeze dried, they will eat them up, yum!

Nets

Sooner or later every fish owner is faced with having to move his or her fish. Bettas are particularly sensitive to being damaged when netted, due to their long flowing fins. A soft mesh or brine shrimp net is a great choice as a gift.
