    An aquarium is an excellent way to invite the vivacity of fish to the interior space of a home since not everyone has the ability to get an outdoor pond. A well-kept aquarium can bring in the qualities of both fish and the water element to invite abundance, luck, and a smooth flow of energy through the room.

    Aquariums make great gifts for those who may enjoy a lively yet calming addition to their office or home, and desktop aquariums are just the right size for any indoor space!

    When giving an aquarium, fish, or any other pet as a gift, you need to remember that you are giving a gift of living things. With this comes responsibility on the part of the recipient. Before giving a gift of an aquarium, make sure that the recipient is ready to take on the care of these living animals and the responsibility of caring for them. You may also want to provide a gift certificate for the purchase of decorations or supplemental equipment if needed.

    aqueon pure betta beads with fish
    *Provides live beneficial bacteria and enzymes to maintain clear water
    *Great environmental enrichment activity for Bettas! Watch as they play in and out of the soft gravel 
    *Soft biodegradable gravel encourages the natural foraging behavior of bettas for mental stimulation
    *Aids in maintaining a healthy aquarium by breaking down organic sludge for a healthy balanced environment
    *If betta beads shrink prematurely, this is a quick indicator that the water hardness is not optimal for your betta - Aqueon recommends changing the water with soft (deionized or specially filtered) betta waters.

    For use in unfiltered betta habitats: Add 1 pouch of betta beads per 1 gallon of water. For best results replace betta beads once a month (add 1 pouch per 1 gallon of water) and perform a 25% water change every 2 weeks.

     Great for upkeeping a smaller, unfiltered tank or may look nice combined with the vibrant look of Aqueon's Edgelit or NeoGlow tanks (filters may change the behavior and performance of the beads - FYI). You can even color-coordinate your beads with your betta or existing gravel / decor! Your betta or other small aquatic pet might play with the beads and push them around - maybe lounge on or in them - but won't risk eating them due to their size.
