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.
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!!!!
Hi, I think that this website is absolutely magnificent! I have been breeding betta's for many years now thanks to this website. Thanks again
I HAVE TRIED TO KEEP MALES AND FEMALES BETTAS TOGETHER BUT THEY ALL DIED FOR NO REASON
my betta fish sam was a dark red-blue. he would always (when i wasn't looking) make a face and pull out the fin under his neck, but i would catch him everytime he did it. he was so adorable, i would sit there for four hours and watch him do it
My female, Star, flips if I put my finger on the top of her tank. She also changes her shade of color every day. My male, DJ, always is looking at her. I think it is so cute!
My male betta, Pearl, is beautful with a dark red body with light red fins. I used to keep it in a small tank, but now I put it in a 5 gallon tank. It used to be boring to look at, staying still and turning. When I put it in the new tank, it turns on it's side on the top of the water & skims across! Its fun to look at now. I think bettas are full of surprises and great pets. I agree that eveyone should have one.
I have 4 Bettas at home. Volt, Redray, Dablu, and Sonic. They are my most colorful and attractive fish I have. Volt has gold and yellow colored body. He has a nice white part on his tail. Redray has a bright red body. Bright, clear white parts on his tail. Dablu has a bright blue body, with nice see through blue fins. Sonic has a dark blue body, also with see through fins. I love my bettas so much! Bettas are the recommended fish to have as a good pet.
I have a female betta named Holly and she really breaks the stereo type that female bettas are ugly. She has a white body with wine coloured fins and face. her mouth is a little darker so it looks like she's wearing lipstick. She's a little devilish because she harrasses her guppy tank mates. Especially the females when they are trying to hide while giving birth. I can't stay mad at her though because she's too cute.
I have a male betta in a 10 gallon tank. he is very active, and pretty, his body is white and pink, and his fins are a dark blue! his tankmates are 2 platys, 3 neon tetras, and 2 spotted cory cats. he didn't get along at first with the platys, but now they are good together. I feed them tetracolor flakes and freeze dried blood worms, they like it. bettas are very fascinating and the prettiest of freshwater fish!
