We keep the temperature of our houses. About 80 degrees? Well, if you figure out 80 degrees, you're right and the betta likes you.
Is it surprising that betta has 80 degrees of water temperature? Think for a moment, tropical fish, tropical fish live where the temperature almost always exceeds 80 degrees.

Living in the dark puddles and the other, A city legend. These fish live in rice fields, rivers and lakes, which usually have a fairly high temperature. Betta's fish, thinking of fish that do not require special treatment or care, will roughly judge the betta An early cry or anything. My wife and I had a beautiful blue betta for their four year anniversary. We spent two years at home for most of the time, and the house was 75 degrees. In the summer we set a temperature of 80 degrees. We noticed that the betta increased significantly during the activity when the house was 80 degrees, compared to 73 or 75 degrees. He never responded to us that this temperature difference was due. We think it was one day lazy, not the other.
In the winter we made a long journey a week and one of our neighbors walked through the fish. The house temperature was set to 65 degrees. When we returned from the trip, a beautiful little betta was on the floor of the tank and it seemed to be dead. The house's temperature was 66 degrees. We both thought the little boy was goner. We left it until we unpacked and the house warmed up. After about an hour he started to swim, and when the house temperature reached 75 degrees, he normally swam around. 19459002
