We have a fighting fish. He lives a plush life in a tank with real plants, 5 gallons of water, hiding places, tetras, shrimp, and snails. Our cats love to watch the tank and my kidlet loves to help feed them.

Wait? Betas can live on tap water?! Is that why none of mine have ever lasted more than a month? No, it’s probably because I suck at fish…

@MissTiramissu:  Just be sure not to put any other fish in the tank with him! – like – EVER. I did that when I was little and it was a disaster. 🙁

@TammieRei:  My bettas lived in filtered tap water.

I found that it was best not to get the prettiest betta, but the one that watches you the most. Whenever we came in the room we were greeted with estatic wiggling and we had a small rubber duck that the fish would fight. They were pretty fun. All of my bettas have passed on now and I have guinea pigs so I’m probably not going to get another, but I really enjoyed them when I had them.

Here are some of my boys


Leopold, he was the best wiggler

and Spickles (FI tried to name him Spike, but it turned into Spickles)

@soontobebe:  This depends on the betta. We added 3 little fish last week that we researched and our betta could care less. We may get a 4th since they were out of the blue when we picked the orange, purple, and green. We chose some rather brightly colored fish that were little, fast and matched the rocks in our tank. Some bettas will put up with tetras others will not.
