Betta Fish Vision is amazingly perceptive. Your Betta’s vision is good enough to see and watch you from a short distance. If you notice, your Betta might sometimes watch you or others walk by their tank or stand in front.
Yep…he is looking at you!
Most aquarium fish tend to ignore us until food is falling from the heavens, or at least from the top of the tank. Betta fish are a little more in tune to us. For example, they respond to sound as well as light and movement. Some Betta owners suggest that vibrations can trigger a reaction in Bettas as well. Makes sense when you think about it. Don’t most animals respond to other sensory perceptions such as hearing and smell? Well, Bettas are no different when it comes to their vision.
There are some important things you need to be careful of if you want to keep your Betta fish’s vision intact. There is a Betta fish disease known as Popeye. This is when the eyes tend to bulge out more than normal. This condition is a bacterial infection caused by poor water conditions. This means that you haven’t been taking good care of your Betta by cleaning their water often enough.
What else can popeye mean? It may mean that your fish has a more serious disease affecting them and it could result in death. Don’t fear though, there are always solutions to these problems if you catch them in time.
Keeping your Betta’s fish tank clean and their water fresh is very helpful to maintaining a healthy lifestyle as well as keeping your Betta Fish Vision clear and unpolluted.
