Thanks, Gunnie, I am indeed the worst betta spoiler around. My bettas are rotten spoiled and I am so proud of them I could burst. They are treated just like children and I mean that in a very good way. I also do not tolerate any abuse or misuse of bettas such as keeping them in the dreadful betta bowls or unheated, unfiltered tanks. Anyone in this forum for very long has gotten used to me and my rantings about the hows and whys of betta treatment. So I guess you could say, I am indeed a betta FANATIC! LOL

Nice to meet you. I hope to hear more from you. Welcome to Fishlore. We need all the Betta supporters we can get.

Thanks,
I have to admitt, when I saw Orion in the glass (which is just evil) looking out at me, I could swear, he looked sad. So, even though there was a nifty two tone betta (like the piccy)
I chose Orion, he's a sapphire fish, with a tip of velvety red on his fins (talk about beautiful!) :

PS My aunt wanted to see the fish, so I showed her, and she used a hand mirror, to make him flare up! I hate that! It's unnessasary, making him stressed out like that!!! >

Beautiful picture, you know how to start my day. And you know how much I love bettas. (as if anyone in this forum couldn't tell by now hopefully) ;D I am so glad everyone here is concerned about them and their welfare.

As I said again thank you, Carol for the lovely start to my day.

Let us all hope your bettas have a good day with such lovely owners as you all are.

I never understood why anyone will keep a betta in a small container. I see that a lot of that in pet stores. They are being treated as if they were disposable. Bettas are really beautiful fish..and deserve a better home then a small container. I have a male betta in my 30 gal tank. and I really enjoy him swimming around with the other fish.

I'm thinking of getting a betta... leaning towards a male - since they can be so spectacular! Any suggestions?  I've seen a couple "emporer bettas" that have tremendous tails/fins... they were awesome!  I would be interested to hear who's got betta's already and any tips on tank size, tank mates etc. would be nice. Thanks.
