Marine Betta – Calloplesiops Altevelis
Care Level: Beginner
Reef Safe: No
Minimum Tank Size: 50 gallons
Tip: My pair was very reluctant to eat anything for the first couple of days. Defrosted clam in the half shell finally elicited a feeding response. I took strips of clam and waved it around the Bettas with feeding tongs. Eventually, they took the strips of clam and regularly feed without hesitation.
Although the Marine Betta will leave coral and anemones alone, it will consume smaller fish and small crabs and shrimp. Proper tank mate research is prudent as any ornamental shrimp or small fish will be eaten without hesitation. This Grouper also does not like bright light. Proper shelter is necessary for refuge purposes. Most specimens are more active at dusk.
This species is not finicky with water parameters. Basic reef parameters will suffice; temp. 72-78 degrees, SG 1.023-1.025, PH 8.1-8.4, dKH 8-12, nitrates <10ppm, nitrites and ammonia 0 ppm.
