In 2018, betta caught fire.
It was the first time an aquatic species had caught fire since a similar incident in 2015.
Now, bettas are being monitored for the deadly bacteria, known as betta flu, that can be found in the wild.
To get the most out of their fish care packages, companies like Pinnacle and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife are offering a free betta starter kit.
The starter kit includes everything a betta would need to care for their fish, including a water bottle, a clean towel, a filter, a filtration system, and a filtrate.
If you’re thinking of picking up a starter kit, it’s best to buy online at bettastar.com, where you can also buy the starter kit for $39.99.
The kit is available online through Oct. 15.
