Betta

Betta splendens are native to Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam, where they live in ditches, rice paddies, shallow pools and slow moving streams. They use a special labyrinth organ which allows them to breathe air above the water surface, although they also have gills like other fish. Because of this ability, some people believe bettas can be kept in small bowls or flower vases. As pets, bettas should be kept in a filtered, heated aquarium with ample room for decorations and for the betta to swim around in. Keep water temperature between 76° and 84° F. At lower temperatures, they become sluggish and susceptible to disease.

Plants and other decorations to provide cover and a secure lid is also required, especially in small containers, to prevent your betta from jumping out of its fish tank in search of a cleaner, or larger body of water. Bettas are carnivores, feeding primarily on insects and insect larvae in the wild. They thrive on protein-based frozen, pellet and flake foods in aquariums.

GloFish

GloFish are brilliantly colored and beautiful fish. A natural fluorescence gene was added to the fish which resulted in fish that are fluorescent at all times. All GloFish are captive-bred and the fluorescent color comes with natural breeding. Because GloFish are a type of danio, barb or tetra, their care requirements are the same.

Koi

Koi fish are fresh water fish that originate from Eastern Asia.  People in Japan believe that the koi symbolizes wealth, prosperity, love, successful career and good fortune. Each variety is associated with one of those values. They are extremely intellectual. Also, koi have the ability to recognize the person who feeds them and they can be trained, like a dog or cat, to eat from his/her hand.  Being omnivores, koi are known to eat pond plants as well as different kinds of fish, eggs, lettuce, watermelon, and peas.

Tadpoles

Tadpoles do not resemble frogs or toads much at all. They look more like fish, in terms of the shapes of their bodies and their long, finlike tails. Frog and toad tadpoles tend to be earthy in color, such as brown, gold and green shades. Their bodies display markings such as spots and speckles. Frog and toad tadpoles have two to four rows of teeth, depending on species. A tadpole has a tail, but when it’s changing into a froglet and getting rid of its tail, it stops eating and absorbs into its body all the food that’s been stored in the tail.
