After reading up everything on the net i got my boy, Cian- blue with red fins. i agree that they have such great personalites and do interact with their owners! im so attached to this boy and have just got him a g/f (in a community tank) who im getting to know. she is very sweet too. Cian was very fussy with his food, only really eating flakes! finally he will eat white worms happily. i am getting a red male this weekend who is going to be his mate (in a separate tank of course). be good to see their different personalites shine. i dont think i will ever get any other fish other than a siamese fighter from now on!
hi i was just writing to tell everyone that it is possible to keep two male bettas together. i have had my blue and my metalic betta together for 4 months now and they dont fight. they sometimes hang out with each other in the ornaments i have. they are kept with 2 gouramis and two angels.
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.
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.
these fish are very cool and funny and there one of my favourite pets (my favourite fish).
I was thrilled to read the comment from Kenneth on 4-25-05 about him putting his two male Betta's together in a 29 gallon tank and they became best friends. I too have two gorgeous royal blue males (I think) and am tired of having separate tanks so tomorrow I will try and combine them in my 45 gal tank wish me luck. Charlotte 5-11-05
they are truly beautiful. i have a deep purple one. the problem is though, he attacks my female, though there has been no eggs.
I know everything says you cannot keep two males together but, I have 2 males in a 29 gallon tank, and yes they sort of flared at each other for a little bit but, I kept an eye on them because I would have taken one out if they had of gotten mean toward each other. They just lost interest in the flaring up and are best buddies in the tank and they will be side by side and eat and swim together and there are no fights yet. This may not be in all cases but is working for me. I have another in a 15 gallon aquarium that is just too lazy...he just sleeps in the weeds in the top part of the aquarium.
I just recently got my first betta fish..it is so cool! Every time i come into the room and put on my light it swims around all fast and gets really excited. Once i got him home he was eventually transfered into a big fish bowl and was very excited and would swim non-stop around the bowl. I would recommend this fish to anyone.
