Hello there and welcome to A Simple Guide to Betta Fish where you and your betta will learn to understand and work with each-other and know each-other as well. I myself have been caring for bettas for six to seven years now and have learned a quaint little lot about them, both scientifically and in handling/cooperative study. My first betta was named rainbow and lived for a good two and a half years and I will continue to care for bettas like I did him and try to care for them even better...

The Superstition of Betta Fish- Part One
Betta Fish are known for being aggressive and mean and cruel, but actually these fish are kind and have individual personalities and should be recognized as complex, intelligent animals capable of much more than we believe. Due to their aggressiveness towards other males, it is stereotyped that they're that way towards all other fish but really, these fish are just mean towards the fish similar to the males they are used to fighting. Certain fish are aggressive but this is an exception with all fish and should be understood as one. If you wish to house a Betta with other fish, do your research first and ask others if your fish is a good match for your betta. Also, if your betta is aggressive, it might just need a larger tank to itself and some time to unwind and calm down or it might not be sociable at all. It all depends on the fish and it's temperament and this should be recognized.

@Morpheus1967 I agree, there are a lot of threads out there (I've read a lot of them myself before getting my own betta's), I still think its nice to add new and fresh perspectives on them. You never know if @OddballBetta has any new and/or updated info to offer (the links you put are 2016/2014/2014 respectively so there's always chance for updates) and besides, it looks more like an interactive and social thread leaving a couple days in-between to "discuss" the previous topics

@OddballBetta nice start, I'm personally the most interested in what you'll be adding to no.2 and no.4.

I’ve actually been meaning to update the care sheet I wrote in 2016! The mods like to delete discussion on the care sheets to avoid clutter, and make it easy to find information needed. If it’s relevant to the thread, they may leave it though.
