Beta fish, frogs, small fish and bamboo inside a large vase. The vase is placed on a colourful plate for good looks and sturdiness
I three have Beta fish in Vases with various plants. You don't have to limit yourself to just Peace lily... you can use Photos, Philodendrons, and a few other non-tonic plants. FYI, my beta's have been living for over a year with these various plants.
Chloramine is a combination of Chlorine and Ammonia, which is more stable than Chlorine, by itself, is & that's why some areas are using it in their water systems now. It's my understanding that it is highly toxic to fish because ammonia, even in low levels, is toxic to them. It takes a week or more to dissipate when exposed to air, which is longer than most of us want a pan of water sitting around (collecting dust) so we can put it in our Beta vase!
Are the "Beta fish in a vase" setups cruel to Betas

The Jar. One of the first parts is choosing a great jar. You want one that has a small neck and a large bowl region (after all the larger the space the more swimming room your fish has). To pull this off you want it to be at least 11" tall and hold at least 2/3 of a gallon of water. There are beta vase kits that make this really easy and come with the jar, instructions, and a plastic tray for your plant.Mason Jar Fish Tank & Vase Shelf by Lifetography on Etsy, $65.00 *disclaimer* this is not the ideal habitat for a beta. Although if you're crafty you could use a much bigger jar & fashion a filter that looks like bamboo that leads to a hideaway tank.... If you have issues with this set up, take it up withe the original blogger. Not me or my comment section. Repin it to your own boards if you feel the need to rant. Thank you.Peace lilies are also known for promoting better air quality in the home. Again, you can even have a beta fish live in the vase and live on the roots--my old Beta fish, Thrud, lived for three years way!Peace lilies are also known for promoting better air quality in the home.
