I had a pair of Dwarf Powder-Blues and they really were my favorites. They played a little game every day for their supper. I would walk up and say hi and they would come right over to me and blow bubbles at me and generally act adorable under my noise for a few minutes. They seemed very smart and always friendly and they got along together pretty well, although I find most fish get a little cranky as they age. It was so difficult to have these guys reach their life expectancies that I never got Dwarf Powder-Blues again, but I still think of them very fondly and remember them. Great fish, very special.

i have one of these comical fish he is over 26" and no problem with small fish even tetra. i have had him over 20 years and he was 12" when i got him. he loves lettuce, cucumber, grapes, etc, etc, and will eat whole prawn in the shell. he loves attacking you but it is all show. they are soft and very inteligent. i tried to put him in a large pool in my conservatory, he did not settle so moved him back into his tank. his name his derek although he is a she. would not recommend for beginners to keep them due to size and very long life.

Bettas are one of my favorite fish!! I am a huge animal lover, especially fish! I have a 30 gallon goldfish aquarium, and 2 one gallon betta tanks. The tanks have a clear divider in the middle, so you can have one one each side and watch them flare and freak out when they see each other!! I named them all from song lyrics/titles from my favorite band, Aerosmith. I have two blue ones(Baby Blue, Beelzebub), a white one with red fins(Kitty), and a purple one(Sweet Emotion). They are very easy to take care of, and they get so excited when I come into the room! I reccomend bettas to anybody who is a beginner and for any fish or animal lover out there!!

I got my first betta about a year ago, i got two more over the summer. I got a bigger tank with dividers to keep them seperate. About 3 days ago my first fish died, probably because he was in a tank next to other fish and was attacking. Bettas are cool and are fun to have.

I just set up a 55 gal community tank with 3 opaline gouramis, 3 rosy barbs, 4 serpae tetras, 7 zebra danios, 4 leopard corydoras, and 2 clown plecos. I started with 2 gouramis but the one was very agressive with the other, though not to the other species. I added 1 more and everything is great now. They definitely are cool fish.

I loved my Betta, but he died a couple of days ago. I cried forever. His name was Sooner, because he was rad and was always so hyper and happy. He lived for two months. He was a Christmas present from my B.F.F

Hi Everyone! Bettas are my personal favorite and its so great to see other people that can appreciate the soul of these little creatures. Anyhoo, I just got my 5th Betta from a petstore 4 days ago. He was kept in dirty water with females who had nipped his fins to shreads. He also had large Anchor worms on his fins. Medications against parasites usually lower the fishes resistance to disease and sometimes dont even kill the parasites. I carefully removed the anchor worms with a tweezer and now have my new friend in an isolation tank (75 degrees, PH 7.0) treated with Melafix and stress coat, performing daily 100% water changes. He is already growing back his fins, swimming around happily, and his anchor worm wounds are healing up quick. Im thrilled at this turnaround and recommend melafix highly for the treatments of open wounds and fin growth :} Just thought I would share.
