Author Topic: What is the highest water temp. that bettas can withstand?  (Read 1536 times)
« on: March 22, 2009, 07:56:47 PM »

The other day i kept the lamp on Juniper's (my betta)  fish16 1.5gallon tank, on for too long and the temp. reached about 86F. She kind of looked skittish *poor thing* so i was wondering if the temp. was too high?

more likely she was sick of the blazing light. Fish need down time like other animals and bright light isn't one of their favorite things.

86 degrees is not especially uncomfortable for a betta. I wouldn't keep them at that all the time though.
