Hello Ernest,
very nice fish. B. imbellis are a little bit shy. Your Tank should already have from 50 l.

Now it will be 3 weeks since i bought them,i have one 54 L tank but it is to high and i have another tank 60Lx25Wx18H i was thinking to move them in this smaler tank,i would put black soil on the ground but i just started soaking the soil and it takes 4-5 weeks until it will be reeady for use.
i could just change blue back with black one so they feel more secure.

Hello and welcome here,

a typical 54-l-tank (60 cm x 30 cm x 30 cm) is not to high for B. imbellis. Smaller tanks make them shy. And you should cover half to 2/3 of the surface with floating and / or swimming plants.

Much pleasure with your nice fish,
Klaus

Hello Donghio,

As Claus mentioned, your tank is not to high. Most of us don't fill their tanks to the top. some 20 - 25 cm. is enough.

regards,
Auke

Hello!

If you fill a planted 54-l-tank completely the water will have a heigth of 20 to 25 cm only. That is no problem für Betta.

Good night!
Klaus (with "K")
