Housing your betta can be a a little confusing for most starters. A common rumour has been passed around about bettas. It's said that bettas can live happily in a 1 gallon or less bowl with no filtration, no heating and low maintenance. This, like most rumours, is false. Bettas need at least 2.5 gallons of filtered, heated water. However, I personally believe bettas need at least a 5 gallon tank. Keep your betta tank clean by doing 20 - 30 % weekly water changes.

Bettas will eat a variety of foods you give them, including frozen blood worms, live blood worms, frozen brine shrimp, frozen beef heart, live blood worms and more. Flakes and pellets can be offered, but this is probably the worst thing to give your betta. Flakes and pellets are too processed for a betta. Also, some people feed their bettas peas. Do not do this, peas are not natural for a betta. Bettas are carnivores, feeding them vegetables could cause health problems. Live mosquito larvae and mosquitos themselves are also a great food source for bettas, along with other small insects and very small earth worms.

I've owned over 15 of these fish in pairs of two or three. They shake and swim in circles when a new one is introduced to the tank, which is cool. Occasionally I would get one (usually the big blues) that would make loud clicking noises (I told people it was my fish "barking"). Sometimes they would also blow bubbles out of their gills. How cool are these fish?!

I have a 150gallon aquarium. A great majority of what I have are gourami of all different types. I have opaline, 3 spot in blue and gold, moonlight, and snakeskin. I even have a couple blood red dwarfs, a giant dwarf, a honey and a sunset dwarf. All these guys share the tank with bala sharks, serpae tetras, and angels. Everybody gets along. The dwarfs have the hardest time, but even they no where to get outta the way from time to time. I'm glad that I havent had to deal with the territoriality. These guys are so beautiful!

I have had a female opaline for around 3 months now as I wanted something different for my 26G community tank. She is a stunning fish, very peaceful and swims around the tank very gracefully. She will feel the other fish with her pectoral fins and I think they may be ambush predators as she likes to emerge from the undergrowth from nowhere. She accepts all foods and even eats hair algae from the plants. They look quite washed out in the shop but she coloured up beautifuly once she settled in.....I would recommend this fish.

I had my betta for 5 months! His light bulb went out so my dad bought a new one. My fish's name is Lu, he's like 2in. I feed him 3-4 pellets a day. I learned that they are carnivores! That's so cool. If u want to figure out more about them, then keep reading peoples comments. Good bye, u r welcome.

I have a Beautiful betta fish named Neptune and he's different shades of blue. My sister has one too named Sundancer. He's red and purple. A week after she got sunny(his nickname) he started puffing. I had no idea what he was doing! But that's good for them. So now they are living happily ever after.

I just got my Gold Gourami from a little mom and pop style shop called The Reef. He's about 4.5 inches long and he's absolutely beautiful and so far, doesn't seem to be that aggressive. But I know he can hold his own 'cause they had him in a tank with around 4 aronawas, three other male gold gourami his size (one was a real scrapper), albino and common pleco, and a black ghost knifefish. I'm so excited to be taking care of gourami again! :)

I purchased an opaline gourami and 1 blue. The opaline is bigger in size and won't stop chasing and (biting) the blue one. The "fight" started almost immediately. On the 3rd day I decided to isolate the opaline and still the opaline tries to get the blue one through its mesh separater. Maybe b-cuz the blue stays right in front opa and won't move away. Should I just let them FIGHT IT OUT CONSTANTLY?
