Yes the female builds a bubble- debris nest. I have two in a 75 gallon tank they are the only two things in the tank and they have both built nests at either end of the tank which left me questioning their sex... but they are most definitely both female.

Hello all, I have had a pair of betta splendens for about 8 months now. The male is a silver-grey longfin, spikey, and the female is orange with long fins. They recently started breeding but the male keeps eating the eggs. I have them living in a 40ltr aquarium with 6 rummy-nose tetras and 4 julii catfish, heavily planted with silk plants, temps around 27c and slightly acidic. I feed them granules, frozen bloodworms and freeze dried. They love showing off for each other and never found the male to be aggressive towards anyone. Highly recommended to anyone who likes slow and graceful fish in their tank. PS.. this the best site I've seen, keep up the good work and information coming...

I recently purchased a betta to go in my 20 gallon aquarium. Currently, he is with 5 corydoras catfish and a bristlenose pleco. He is very happy and I found that he is very active. He swims everywhere in the tank and ignores the corydoras. This fish is happiest in at least a 3 gallon (15L) aquarium. I am going to get some type of tetra or danio and if he doesn't bother them, I'll get some different ones.

Betta's can be housed with other fish as long as he and the other fish can get away from each other. In my tank I used to have 2 Chinese algae eaters, an angelfish and a male veil tail Betta. Now I have the same veil tail betta and angelfish along with a kuhli loach, a large white/black skirt tetra, 2 male mollies, a pregnant female molly and a cory cat. They live fine together in 25 C (77 F) water. The betta usually flares up at the angel and the tetra and he is they top dog in the tank even though he is not the biggest fish.

Hi people. I've been keeping fish 40 years and I've kept most of what's out there. Now
I can tell you these fish are not all that they appear. The one I had the longest, pinky we called him, was a very aggresive and nasty fish. We had to put ours in my friends tank while we decorated the room. I got a call an hour later, he had killed their oscar and was bashing their big red devil. When I got there it was almost dead and all the other fish were up one end of the tank. But we loved him, and it ate anything. An internal muck sucking filter combined with a good sump filter is the best. Have fun, I found them great. mark

I have had bettas in the past, usually in a small cold water tank that is no hotter than 18 C (64 F), and usually in a 1-8 liter(2 gallons) tank, and all of them looked unhappy. Now I have a veil tail betta in a 28 liter (7 gallon) tank along with an angelfish. The water is set to 26 C (78 F). He and the angel get along swimmingly but sometimes he will flare at the angel but not attack it. He is happily swimming around healthily in his 28 liter tank. I strongly recommend that bettas should be kept in at least 16 liters (4 gallons) and have a temperature range from 24-30 C (76-86 F) to be healthy. They can be kept in cold water but in temperatures under 24 C they won't swim around as much, they won't eat as much, and they are more likely become sick. They should have plants, flake or live foods, and ornaments.
