Betta Siamese Fighting Fish are gorgeous and beautiful
- Don't need an air pump/air stone
- Don't need a very big tank (although that would be ideal)
- Fairly cheap
- Good for beginners, hardy fish. I love Bettas of all kinds. They are amazing to look at with those long fins, range of colours, and such unique personalities. I have one (rescued from Wal-Mart) and made an amazing recovery and just fell in love with the hobby of Betta keeping. GREATLY recommended. Bad points are: - Cannot live... (read more)

I loved how beautiful Betta Siamese Fighting Fish are it's like watching a rainbow! My first female fish was so spunky but a few days later i got a male fish and he was so aggresive to the female while he was at the top she was hiding in a water plant! Awesome, great fish. (read more)

I have to be honest the only thing I don't like about my betta is that I was unable to find the right diet. I tried blood worm mixture of nutrients...frozen blood worms mosquito larvea flakes pellets. My Betta was a pain as he didn't seem to want to eat anything.
Finally when I started putting small portions in he seemed to start eating them.
Although mine was pet shop bought and I heard they are more boring or something I'm not sure.
Still love the little guy though. (read more)

I have a Red Betta Fish called Rocky. I keep him in a 20 gallon tank all on his own. Personally just because they can live in small bowls doesn't mean they should have to.
I have had rocky for 2 months. I have a heater that stays on all the time however it only maintains the temp and isn't always on and I only have the filter on during the night as the plants use the oxygen in the water to respire. Strangely it doesn't actually cost that much on the electric bills
I have a varied diet for... (read more)

no two betta's are alike. they have the cutest little personalities. they are playful and recognize their owners, they will swim from one side of the tank to another to follow you. the males are beautiful but I have to say the little females are so spunky and adorable.
I have a 20 gallon tank divided in 3 sections for my 3 bettas. And a 10 gallon tank with betta fry. I never thought fish can be this smart. (read more)

I just got a Betta Siamese Fighting Fish about 2 1/2 days ago. Already he seems to have adapted to his new family. He is a beautiful yellow gold color like i have never seen. He is our first pet and already we love him. Sometimes i sing to him. He recognizes me when i get home. I am curious.. what type of fish can swim with him safely in the tank? Also, how can u tell how old he is? I think that mine may still be a baby. I know this may be a silly question but how do fish sleep? (read more)

my friend gave me her betta, as she got bored of it, but it doesnt seem to do anything - it just sits there looking unhappy. It stays still most of the time and so i am paranoid that its dead. I usually feed it flakes, but would like to feed it some live fish. any ideas? (read more)

They are beautiful, easy to look after ,and cheap to keep. Can survive in very small tanks, but they won't be very happy and i strongly strongly advise you to keep him in more than a 3 gallon, with hiding places, with heater and filtration he will be much happier. All the bad points will go away if you keep him on his own. (read more)

I own one Siamese fighting male, and from my experience I find that this breed is one of the best tropical fish someone can care for, and the most rewarding. They are so attractive, fun and loving. Mine is a very dark blue bodied fish, with light blue and red fins. I have been able to train my fish to follow my finger through obstacles, and I am always able to get the full attention of the fish. They are an easy breed to keep, as they don't require any apparatus.
My next step is to... (read more)

I currently have my cambodian coloured siamese fighting fish in a tank with 2 black mollies and 8 prestella tetras. He spends most of his time investigating the tank on his own but is often seen in close proximity to the two mollies, they enjoy a little swim together amongst the plants.
I find he has no problem with the tetras, and they no longer even feel that they have to school tightly and will happily let him in amongst them. My girlfriend absolutely adores the relaxing nature of the... (read more)

A fantastic looking fish with great personalities. They are majestic to watch and are always looking for trouble,lol.

Are very interesting to breed once you have gained enough experience keeping them. (read more)

I love Betta's. I keep a great many of them, and I am a member of the IBC. These beautiful fish have fantastic personalities, and they respond to their owners in a friendly manner. All are so different, with different wants and needs. Don't be fooled by some of the poor looking creatures in fish stores. These are an addictive fish. I know, I currently own 27!
As you can no doubt tell, Betta Siamese Fighting Fish are a passion of mine, of which I cannot possibly do them justice in these... (read more)

I think that the Beta Siamese Fighting fish is physically beautiful, however, on a personality basis it is only active when presented with another fish it is able to fight with, otherwise it is inactive and usually boring. These fish also die easily from my experience. (read more)

I have two male Beta Siamese Fighting Fish, very colorful, I recently decided to put my fish in separate bowls, after noticing they died after trying to get one another in the bowl divided by a wall I think this stressed them out, now they are separate.
And very happy. By the way their names are Starsky & Hutch, they are way cool ..... (read more)

Hello, I have a beta named Simon Cowell III, he is at the office where i work. He lives in a vase with a plant on top. He loves to swim around the roots and hang in them like he is in a hammack. When I was on vacation I asked the ladies in the office to please feed Simon. They all fed Simon, he eats a lot. I change his water once a week, the other day my friend let me know that he was blowing bubbles on top of the water. I do believe he enjoys that. When he is hungry he will stare at me. He...

I had a fighting beta when I was young. Now I bought one so my children could enjoy its beauty without the downside of larger pets. It cost $3.50 and a one gallon air permeable plastic tank cost $7.50 from PetCo. I feed it cheese and bread and this summer I will feed it live insects. I change the water whenever it is cloudy since fish excrete ammonia as waste and the Ph will change drastically with time. Now my kids have an easy upkeep pet. (read more)

I have a large Red Beta Fish (for about a month now). I never thought that I could get so attached to a $3.49 fish but I just love him! His name is Pepper and I keep him at the office. People are always commenting on how pretty he is and what a personality he has. I have been feeding him a minimal amount of flake food but would love some imput on live food or other options, because I have not taken care of fish in the past I would appreciate any imput on water care and cleaning as well.

My male Beta is in great condition. I have had him for about a year and a half. I do not fight him, I just keep him fit by feeding him live food and breeding him, but he is getting a bit old for that. Now I just keep him in a 4-5 litre tank to keep him happy. My female is in a 6 gallon tank with some other fish, but my male beta is my favourite so he is by himself on the computer desk keeping me happy when I am on the computer. (read more)

Beta fish are the kind of fish you can take care of if you're relatively lazy and irresponsible! I should know, that's how I am! They are active fish with beautiful color and fins. Their durability and stalwartness make them great pets for the absent-minded. Even their price for upkeep is low because they don't need complicated tanks and filters to keep them alive. All you need is some spring water, a small tank and some beta food and you're good to go! If you've never had fish before,... (read more)

Siamese fighting fish are the bomb! They swim around real fast and they're aggressive even in old age! How cool is that?! Without doubt, Betas are the best fish in world history, no denying it.
The only bad thing is when you have 2 fish. Because then you need 2 tanks, otherwise they fight each other til the death. Although this is bad, there is a solution. You could go to Petco, or somewhere like that, and get this really cool tank, not too big, not too small, but here's the thing: It's... (read more)

The Beta fish is the ultimate hard-wearing, long-living fish for those who want a fresh water fish that you can keep in a bowl without expensive filters and heaters and the like. The males are very pretty fish with long showy fins and come in a variety of colours such as red, blue, purple, or a combination of the lot. You do, however, have to be careful because if you get too much nitrogen (I think it's nitrogen) in the water they develop this horrid white filmy fungus. We had to... (read more)
