I love putting together special gifts for special people in my life, and I don't mean toys or sweaters, I mean something really special. But what? Here's an idea for under $50 that you can put together and delight that special person ~ a beautiful Betta Fish in the decorated fish bowl. Betta fish is beautiful, inexpensive, and requires little maintenance.
One Betta Fish $7
Glass Betta Bowl $16
Gravel $4-$8 (I mixed black and white gravel)
Decorations $6-$10 (I chose the pink rock and the green plant)
The Net $3
Beta food $3
Water Conditioner $4
Step 1: Wash the gravel
Step 2: Wash and place decorations.
Step 3: Fill in the 80% of the bowl ~ chlorine in tap water can harm Bettas, and adding a few drops of water conditioner is a must. Prior to putting the fish into the bowl, wait for an hour or two to let the water get to room temperature.
Step 4: Using the net, slowly and carefully scoop the fish from his container and gently put him inside the bowl.
*Note ~ never put Beta fish together with other fish because they are aggressive and will fight.
Feed the him regularly (do not overfeed!), and change the water every two weeks or as needed.
Now, it's time to name the fish ~ my cute blue fish is Ben!
And please share your special gift ideas!
