I may have the longest living betta. I have had this fish for 3 or 4 years and is the only betta I have owned. However, he has developed a large black tumor on his side which concerns me. He continues to eat and acts pretty normal.

I have a 30 gallon tank with a small bala shark, a couple congo tetras, and a couple other small fish. there is also a blue gourami. i recently added a gold gourami and all its been doing is picking on the blue one constantly! it rams its sides and tries to bite its fins when feeding and chases it all around when not. its strange because it doesnt pick on any of the other smaller fish. i read that the males have longer pointier dorsal fins and from this gathered that the gold one is male and the blue one is female. perhaps that is why. someone else said that golds are known to be more aggressive. whatever the reason im scared hes gonna kill the other one : (

Hi my name is tami, and I own a blue gourami. I love it. i called it eddy, but i am not quite sure whether it is a boy or a girl. so i came to this website to look up a picture of the fish, cause someone said my fish might be a blue gourami and i also got how to tell the difference between the sexes. So i guess my friends were right. so well, here is the story of how I got it. I am age 17 and my father teaches science and he had this aquariam in his room. He had this teacher ask him if he would like a fish in it and he said yes sure. so come the end of the school year he had nowhere to put it. i offered my room. so well there is the short version of my story, but i love pets and fish most of all.

Hello there. Betta Fish are one of my favorite fish.This site helped a lot with my question regarding the lifespan of Betta Fish. i have had my betta Kalan for 7 months and it's really neat to learn different facts about bettas online. Kalan is Greenish Blueish and reading this information it tells me that he is a male.
Well thats all for Now, Bye and Thanks!

Betta Splendens are one of the best pets I think one can have. They are inexpensive, readily available, and they don't ask for much from the owner except for good clean water and a good diet (they go crazy for blood worms and brine shrimp; freeze-dried versions of these foods are great since they last long and don't carry parasites like frozen versions risk carrying). All betta owners can agree that they are lovable for their beauty, but most of all for their personality! Each are unique in their own way and each carry their own unique temperaments. While they can't do tricks like dogs, I think they are very much like them except that they live in tanks. They have big personalities (especially when they flare :) ). they tell you that they're happy with their bubble nests, and are happy to see you. I would recommend Bettas for everyone.

I have 2 blue gouramis that are about 3 inches long. I have them in a 75 gallon tank with a 8" fire eel, a 4" fire eel, a 4" albino claw frog, a tapajose sultan pleco about 4", a common pleco about 5", about a 6" carupo knife fish, a 5" ghost knife fish, 4 silver dollars, a 4" and a 3" angel fish, and a 12" pacu. The paco is a recent addition but the blue gouramis don't seem to chase anything around the tank but each other. I recently discovered that I have a male and a female gourami. Of course even the silver dollars aren't much smaller than the gourami's either. I believe that size is an important factor because even when I put feeder fish in their they don't go after them

My male flame honey gourami would pick on my female dwarf, so I had to move her to a ten gallon. HE gets along with the female honey gourami and he even leaves the guppies alone.

I have 2 Blue Gouramies and 2 gold gouramies along with mollies, angelfish, and silver dollars. In a nearly 50 gallon tank, all are doing well. They like to swim and feed with my other fish and don't chase them around the tank. Right now they are only about 2-3 inches long. I think most people having problems with gouramies are putting them in tanks too small. Then need plenty of territory and will be less aggressive. Mine have done wonderful this way.
