Hi.
Does anyone know any good online stores that sells different type of bettas and are trusty? All the pet stores and wallmart etc have really boring looking fish. They only have blue and red and veil tails. Btw, are there any sites that sell abnormally big ones? haha. btw is it bad to keep a mirror in front of the tank, or will the fighting fish die faster cuz of stress?

ThankS!

Welcome to the betta forum, Lavish.

Bettas need to have a tank that holds at least 2.5 gallons of water. A five gallon tank is recommended. The tank needs to be heated to a temp of about 80-82 degrees F. It also needs to be filtered. No matter how pretty the small containers are they are simply not big enough for a healthy Betta. I hope this information is helpful.

This forum does not condone using Bettas for fighting. It's cruel!  >
That awful little cup you mentioned is not a suitable home for any fish. Bettas need about 5+ gallons of space with heater and filter and should NEVER be used for fighting. 
You should never keep a mirror in front of the tank. It stresses them out so bad eventually they die.

Miami aquariums is a very reputable online store to buy from. However, if you intend on getting them to fight and not as a nice pet to have and care for please don't get one. They don't deserve to be treated that way. It's very inhumane. Natalie

I think the fighter's are the cambodian ones. They are the most aggressive ones. That's is why they are called the "5 star fighter's"I'm glad that you are not using them to fight. Do you have a tank yet? If you don't you will need toget all that stuff and then get your Betta after the tank has been cycled. Did you read the Cycle area in this forum?

If you have any other questions regarding everything you need for your Betta let us know.

The "fighters" that are sold by Miami Aquariums are not meant to be sold as fighting fish. That is just the name of the type of betta fish that they are imported as. They are used as fighting fish in parts of the world but these wonderful people do not sell them to be fighters.

What some ignorant people do with them after they buy them from vendors anywhere is not the best sometimes but if I find someone who is scoping for fighting fish, I will notify this vendor not to sell to them.

i think he said just before the alst two posts he wasnt going to make them fight. I think he just want a really good fish. I am more worried about his friend who says his fish can kill any other fish. How would he know that..... ???

lolagurl,

I don't know if you read his other post before it got deleted. He was defending the people who use them to fight. I think he was getting into it and was going to use them to.
