Reading a good book can give you more knowledge on vital subjects such as care of your pets. It is also a joy to be thus engaged and know you are working in a positive direction to take care of your fish. As you feed and watch your fish every day - and change their water and sometimes redecorate their fish tanks when you clean them - you will have more and more questions about the care of your fish to maintain his health and happiness.
This book, "Betta Care Quick and Easy", is a good place to start or refresh your memory of Betta fish care. First, it explains about the personality and fighting urge of the Betta Splendens. This is important to note, as it is important to always understand characteristics of any animal before you take them home as a pet. With this knowledge, you are prepared to take care of the individual needs of the betta fish. Itís important to understand about the bettaís personality so you can keep him safe and happy.
You will find information about everything from antibiotics to water temperature in this book. One topic covered here about the extraordinarily beautiful and loving Betta fish is in regard to the finnage and colors of the fancy betta. This is an informative section on this important area and there are many gorgeous photos included. This will help you decide which betta to choose when you are at the pet shop or aquarium shop.
The section on aquarium care is really good - you can pick up some tips or remind yourself of how to do it. Itís a useful reference to have on hand.
Probably the section you will want to read the most is the one about illnesses and their treatment. This is to help you avoid any of these things from happening and in the event that one of your fishes does become sick, you will have some help to heal them and cure them and get them back to health and happiness again. Itís not something we like to talk about until it happens, but if you bone up in advance on information such as this, then you will hopefully avoid a disaster with your fishís health and in the worst case - you will know what to do if it happens.
