Betta fish are fish ive had and owned multiple times throughout my life. I absolutely love them, they're my favorite fish. Up until a year or so ago i thought that the only kind of Betta out there was the ones you see in stores like walmart and stuff, now what i mean by that was that i didnt know about the other kinds of "fancy"(as i call them) bettas out there. Like the crown tails, halfmoons, and double tails. When i did find out about i thought it was very intresting because the pet stores that ive been to only ever had the most common one, like the one you find in walmart. well today when i went to the pet store, i had no intentions of actually buying anything, i just like to go in and look around at all the supplies and animals and such. I was looking through all the fish they had and saw a crown tail betta. That was a first for this pet store as they've only ever had the common ones, and it was such a beautiful color! A dark blue and black with red tipped fins. And its fins are so beautiful, they look so flowing and silky like. its really a beautiful fish i could not help but by it. I bought him and placed him in an old tank that i had. I love to just watch him swim around. Because bettas are always looked at as decorations more than fish you often dont see him doing anything. I like placing them in tanks where they have lots of moving room and just watching them swim around. Its such a huge contrast to the just do nothing fish it was in the pet store.
