2.Betta fish

According to the principles of   ‘Feng-Shui’, a fish tank in your home is a symbol of luck and wealth.  Studies have proven the numerous health benefits of aquarium fish.

 So much so, your Betta fish has many health benefits such as reduced blood pressure, and improved heart rate, enhanced quality of sleep, decreased anxiety, good for hyperactive children, Alzheimer’s therapy, and improved productivity.

The Siamese fighting fish (Betta splendens), originally imported from Siam (today’s Thailand), has quickly become the aquarium's most popular fish. Because they adapt to most aquarium temperatures and eat pr anything offered to them (although they are true carnivores), Bettas have become a well-liked addition to the family fish tanks.

If you go through a Blessings Aquarium online Shop and look at all the species, you will quickly become attracted to the Siamese Fighting Fish. The long fins and spectacularly colored bodies attract the beginner hobbyist as well as the pro. Many have flow fins so long that they have to be isolated so that other fish aren’t attracted to them.

Why Are They Called Fighting Fish?

Siamese Fighting Fish acquired their name because of the aggressive nature the males exhibited toward other males. Being very territorial, when two males are in close proximity, they will battle until one is either hurt or retreats.


Bettas, unlike other species, are not schooling creatures and will fight with each other. Bettas prefer to swim alone and also need a comfortable place to hide in the tank.

Bettas are known to recognize their human companions, will follow your finger around the aquarium, and can even be trained to perform tricks! On average, the betta fish life span is 3 to 5 years, but in rare cases, they can reach up to 8 or 9 years of age in captivity
