INSPIRED BY NATURE. DEVELOPED BY FLUVAL
Fluval has taken decades of hobby experience and expert knowledge to create the ultimate Betta habitat and accessory offering.
The Ultimate Betta Habitat
Fluval firmly believes the development of products for the home aquarium should incorporate elements from the species’ natural habitats. The kit is specifically designed to replicate the tropical habitats of this popular fish species, and comes equipped with multistage diffused filtration, soft LED lighting and a convenient pre-set heater – all tailor-made for Betta splendens
Betta Premium Aquarium Kit 2.6 US Gal. / 10 L
- Suitably sized for a single male or female B. splendens, providing ample room to swim freely
- Easy to maintain optimal water conditions
- Allows for recommended live plant growth
CUSTOM BETTA FILTRATION
In the wild, Bettas inhabit slow, gentle moving bodies of water. Captive-bred varieties typically possess extravagant, flowing finnage and as such are poor swimmers. Therefore, the need for gentle, diffused water movement is extremely important. In a contained aquarium, there are a range of challenges to consider that differ from wild habitats, such as limited surface area and gas exchange. These factors can put a strain on the aquarium; therefore, conditioners, supplements and filter media are necessary to keep things in balance and create ideal conditions that mimic those found in nature. They make water safe for aquarium use by removing harmful waste/toxins and adding beneficial bacteria to the environment.
The aquarium features an expanded array of intake slots to reduce the intensity of the flow and prevent the fish from getting stuck to the intake. The unique Diffusion Chamber significantly reduces water movement via the widening of the output and multiple layers of sponges. The end result is gentle, diffused water movement and turnover in the aquarium.
THE BEST FILTERED BETTA AQUARIUM
B. splendens are typically found in habitats naturally dense with vegetation. These bodies of water are extremely clean as they are extensively filtered by the plants. As a result, both wild and captive-bred Betta splendens prefer very well-filtered environments.
UP TO 6 STAGES OF FILTRATION
- Stage 1 – Mechanical foam block*
- Stage 2 – Chemical carbon insert*
- Stage 3 – Biological BioMax*
- Stage 4 – Chemical resin infused pad (opt.)

Diffusion Chamber (Stage 4-6) Offers 2 spaces for filter media: Diffusion Chamber pad* + resin infused pad
* Included with Betta Premium Aquarium Kit
FULLY INTEGRATED PRE-SET HEATER
As B. splendens live in tropical climates in the wild, recreating warmer temperatures for domestic varieties is important. If not kept warm enough, specimens can become less active, lose their appetite and fall ill. Bettas typically thrive in a temperature range of 76-82 °F (25-27 °C).
CUSTOM BETTA LIGHTING
In captivity, B. splendens prefer to be kept under soft, subdued lighting. Doing so helps them feel more comfortable, makes their colours look nicer, and provides a more natural aesthetic look to the tank.
