I have 2 bettas, their names are Dave and Rainbow Jimmie. They really are the prettiest fish around. Dave is a handsome red color and Rainbow Jimmie is, well, a rainbow.

I bought my fish innocently... and I've had him for two years now. Really, I put that poor fish through a lot, and he's still kicking.

Before I found this site I wasn't sure on what fish I should get. My little brother has a Paradise fish, and I was going to get one as well. Now I have read this site and all the positive comments I know that I'm going to DEFINITELY get a betta ASAP!!!

YOU HAVE TO OWN A BETTA TO KNOW WHAT A WONDERFUL PET THEY ARE. THEY ASK FOR VERY LITTLE - A GLASS BOWL, CLEAN WATER AND A PELLET OR TWO. THIS ELEGANT LITTLE FISH IS A TREASURE!

Hi, I've had betas for many years now and the longest living one died two months ago, he was 5 years old and that is not counting how old he was when I got him. I recently bought what seems to be a baby because he is the smallest guys I have ever seen. He is absolutely gorgeous, belly is dark blue and the rest of him is burgandy. He is only eatig 1 pellet 3 times per day. I tried 2 pellets but he just ignores it. I have him in a very large fish bowl and that seems so big for him. I just love having him around.

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!
