Algae scraper for betta tanks
Some people question if they really need an algae scraper for betta tanks. While I can definitely understand why people would be skeptical about needing one of these handy tools to dedicate towards cleaning aquariums that Siamese fighting fish are kept in, I tend to think that they are a necessity.
I have several bettas (about 10 or so at the time of writing this post) and they are almost all kept in individual tanks (except for the female bettas). Most of the tanks are in the 1-2 gallon size range. I tend to clean these by slowly pouring out the water and filling back up with clean/fresh water. If you do this often enough you won’t likely need to scrub off algae on a regular basis, but since the surface of the glass isn’t scrubbed often it can slowly build up a film of clearish/light green algae on it. I like to leave this on the bottom of bare-bottom tanks since it can help harbor beneficial bacteria in the biofilm.
On the sides of the tank, though, I find the algae to be a poor sight to look at so I like to get rid of it once it builds up enough to interfere with looking at my beautiful betta fish!
