Some Like It Hot

Bettas are freshwater tropical fish, which means they like warmer temps in the tank. Keeping the water temperature between 76-86˚F makes for a happy fish. If you notice your betta lying at the bottom of the tank, it might be a sign that things are too cool. Bettas slow down and get lethargic when water gets cold. A tank heater will toast things up in no time.
