I have had bad luck with fish, but bettas are very hardy. Also they are not messy like goldfish. They have a lot of personality, (for a fish) and mine will even take food from my fingertips. I have had three--two females and a male. Now I am down to one. My male died of old age, and I lost a female in a cat related tragedy. If you look around you can get some very pretty females--mine is brilliant red. She lives in a five-gallon tank with a ghost shrimp. (Which by the way she gets along with fine once the novelty of "something-new-to-follow-around" wore off.) Ivan is quite right, just because they can live in a small container does not mean they should, they should have at least a gallon. In all these are great fish, definitely one of my favorites!

I have two of these in my tank and they are very beautiful and graceful. One does seem to pick on the other but there doesnt seem to be undue stress on the part of the "victim" as it doesnt continuously hide. They get on well with other fish.
I have:
6 Neon Tetras
6 White Cloud Mountain Minnows
3 Golden Barbs
2 Dwarf Gouramis
4 Corydoras Panda
3 Otocinclus Affinis
1 Siamese Algae Eater
2 Sunrise Mollies

They seem to make for a succesful community aquarium,

Actually, I have 2 male bettas and I either put a mirror next to their tanks or set their tanks next to each other. I have read on many different web sites that it is good for the betta to have company, even if it is just a mirror. But, my bettas are in a little tank, less that half gallon, and they have lived for a little over a year now. I have one betta, purple and yellow, that I named Spirit and the other ones name is Snuggles. I just thought that Snuggles was a cute name so I named him that. I keep my bettas by them selves, with no other fish or snail in the tank. It is though, ideal to have a small snail in the tank with your betta to keep the tank clean. Some of you say that bettas are the best pets to have and I think that is 100% true. They are so easy to take care of! DO NOT PUT TWO MALES IN THE SAME TANK UNLESS YOU HAVE A DIVIDER BETWEEN THEM! Females you can put together. And Wal-Mart, finally, is starting to carry larger cups for their bettas. I have heard that a male and a female betta should not be put together until they are ready to be bred. The male will attack the females, other males, and the baby fish (fry). And again, a betta is the best starters fish.

Hello, I also have a Male Betta, and just like my previous Betta he is in a 10 gallon tank with about 3-4 other fish. My previous Betta was in a tank with a silver dollar fish, an algae sucker, and a small gold fish. They all got along, while the Betta taunted the Dollar fish a few times, the Dollar fish did not allow himself to be bullied, and they both eventually got along. Now with my recent Betta, he lives with a chinese algae eater, a black moor, a ghost shrimp, and another fishy who I still have to identify. They all get along, the thing with a Betta is they are territorial, they tend to want space for themselves, a good cave or plant covering can supply that need in a 10 gallon or more tank with other fish as long as it is not crowded. So Bettas do get along with other fish, do not be fooled, especially by Walmart, whos employees ,who always seem so negative to begin with, tell you that you can not have a betta with other fish in the same tank. Space and a place to hide when they want to be antisocial is what the Betta wants. As long as you give them that, they should be alright. And remember to always research your fish.

Fish on your photo picture is not Colisa chuna.
Fish on the photo picture is a red form of Colisa lalia.
I know this because I crossed this red form of Colisa
lalia with blue Colisa lalia and they produced babies.
Colisa chuna eggs are black, but Colisa lalia eggs
are white. I dont think you can cross Colisa lalia
and Colisa chuna. At least not as easy.

I once thought that fish were boring, that all they do is swim around all day. Then this one day I was suprised when a friend gave me one, my first Siamese Fighting fish. After seeing the fish in the bowl I started to think that it was not that bad. then I began noticing that I had this urge to go home and see my new fish,...by the way his name is Dragon. I called him this because Dragon looks very mystical and mysterious, and he also reminds me of a Chinese Dragon.
Then I started to research him on the Internet and then I came across this website. I noticed that Dragon is alot like my hamsters and they seem to get along too. I enjoy my fish very much and I am glad that other people enjoy their fish too.

I have heard and read that gouramis are peaceful, but I tried to put my male flame gourami and my dwarf gourami together, and they fought. They were relentless. My honey(gold)gouramis also fought.

My Giant Gourami attacks all of my other fish including the catfish which most fish tend to ignore. The problem is getting worse as it grows, so I have separated my Gourami from the other fish. I hope my Gourami grows to be less aggressive as I hope to open up my tank in future.
