I know I'm just a newbie..but I think you might enjoy this story. I was at wal-mart about a month ago...picking up some fish food, when I saw a betta. He looked so sad and so sick...I felt so bad..he looked like he was gonna die soon. Well, I felt bad, and I don't know much about fish...but I bought him anyways. Took him home...put him in a 5gal bowl. I fed him and did what thought was best. I changed his water twice a week, fed him twice a day. Well...a month later, he looks ten times better than he did. He's now in a 10gal well planted aquarium with a mollie and a platy...they all get along good...He's so much better...He even lets me pet him...I love him to death now.

Well thats the story...Hope you enjoyed it.

Aren't Bettas just awesome? That's amazing that yours even lets you pet him. That's great that you got him a tank. I'm sure he is so happy.

It is obvious that he feels loved or he would never let you get so close to him, congratulations. It is amazing that he coexists with another long finned fish without there being a bit of a fin nipping problem. He is probably loving the 10 gallon planted tank. They love the room and they love real plants. I hope you have a few really tall ones for him to sleep on.

It sounds like you have his comfort in mind and really love him. I congratulate you.

That is just the swetest story! Thats how I met Taro, my betta (who is sadly now in fishy heaven). He was being eaten by the other fish in a fish store and I couldn't just leave him so I had to put him in a breeding net in my brothers tank until mine was set up and running and he got better and better ;D He was a very affectionate little guy too... they know when you really love them and they reciprocate the love. I'm getting another one soon!
