Hey Betta Lovers everywhere! I've recently bought my female and male betta at a pet store in San Diego, CA. Let me tell you...my female is bigger than any male betta that I've seen in many pet store in AZ. I don't know why, maybe the weather or something. Anyway, she was transported from CA to AZ a few weeks ago, and is still looking beautiful since the first time I bought her. Shes in a 10gal now with two Dragon fish, an algae eater, a frog, and a Dinosaur fish. I'll be adding a mate for her soon. He is on his way from Cali rite now. It will be my first time attempting to breed bettas. I love your website so much that I bookmarked it. Thanks for all the helpful info. And please keep on updating more helpful info in the future.

I HAVE 2 OPALINE GOURAMIS, 2 BLEEDING HEART TETRAS, 2 BLACK WIDOW TETRAS, AND AN ALGAE EATER IN A 29 GAL TANK. THEY ALL GET ALONG GREAT. I ADDED THE GOURAMIS ABOUT 3 WEEKS AGO AND NO INJURIES OR ANYTHING OF THAT SORT YET! HOPEFULLY ALL WORKS OUT GREAT. I LOVE THE GOURAMIS!!

Greetings: I have been a big fan of bettas since I was a child. At one point in time, I have kept more than forty bettas at the same time, and had a few successful spawns. In Thailand, I've seen these fish being fought, not for the sport, but for the honor and prestige of the owner, who tries to sell his bettas as having came from the best bloodlines and gene pools. Even the loosing fish will be taken home and be well cared for. But I like to point out, that, I have NEVER seen any fish fought to the death. Usually one would give up and swims away. The other would be declared the victor. Also, the only time that I've seen a male being attacked by a female,is when the female is much larger than the male. They can tell each other apart as males or females. Just to clarify a couple of things. THANKS!!!!

I have one of these with a bala shark, a red tailed shark, and a baby gumpy. i think that it's a male by the shape of his fins and he is pretty aggressive and he will chase the significantly larger bala shark around the tank. but he's my fatty!! i love him!

I love the Pearls and keep a 80 centemeter long tank basically for these guys, which seem to survive in the hard water here in Israel. The males do develop vivid breeding colors, though have not bred. I hear this is because I have some other fish with them. Anyway, keeping one is okay but nothing like having a pair-- and there's nothing like having a group of four or five! They are very very social, coherting with one another with their "feelers." Now for something really interesting: one of the males goes near the tank bottom, stands on his head, then a Corydoras aneus comes around and tickles his sides for about two minutes. The Pearl goes up for air and the two repeat this behavior. It reminds me of saltwater cleaning wrasses. Anyway, it proves that even fish like this sort of thing.

We have had a giant Gourami for 2 years now and he has become very much part of the family. His name Sashimi and is now 14inches long. We just got him a 150 gallon tank and hopefully this will be his last move. Sashimi is just like a dog and goes crazy soon as he see's or hear's the family. He doesnt' like other fish so he is alone, he also gets stress marks on his body if we are away on vacation so you need a fish sitter (They really need attention)
Sashimi loves pea's and blood worms for those of you thinking of getting this kind of fish be ready as they grow fast and require lots of attention.

HI. LIVING IN AUSTRALIA IT WAS QUITE A CHALENGE AQUIRING ONE OF THESE BEAUTIFULL FISH AND ONCE YOU DO FIND ONE IT WOULD BE ABOUT A FOOT LONG AND CARRY A $400 + PRICE TAG. BUT AFTER 8 MONTHS OF SEARCHING I FINALLY GOT MY HANDS ON A 8cm PINK SPECIMEN. I have him in a 400 LITRE TANK WITH HUGO MY COMMON PLECO THAT I HAVE HAD SINCE A TINY 6CM HE IS NOW A FOOT LONG MONSTER. I HAVE FALLEN IN LOVE WITH THE GOURAMI AND LOOK FORWARD TO BUYING HIM A BIGGER TANK AS HE TURNS INTO A MONSTER.
REGARDS MICAHEL

I have 2 Gold Gouramis in a tank with 2 Angelfish and a Zebra Pleco and they all do just fine together. Both of my Gouramis came from the same tank and are about 3-4 inches long and were very healthy when we bought them and they still are. I must say that this fish is rather easy to take care of, but they are VERY skiddish, even more so than the Angels. Also if you have not one of these fish already, and you plan to buy one, be cautious on the first few weeks because they get so much more stressed out than the other fish upon new tank entry.
