Hello, Bettas are probably my favorent fish.
I keep mine in large almost two gallon fish bowls which
recieve regular water changes. Bettas are very interesting
fish, each has its own personality. PLEASE never keep
bettas in anything less then half a gallon! Its a cruel
pratice though lots of people do it. Of course the best
home for a betta would truely be in a actual fish tank.
Ideal would be a five to ten gallon. Dont keep any fin
nippers with this species! :)
Marine.

These are wonderful fish and you should be able to acquire them at any specialty fish store. Good luck!

I have a female gold in a tank w/ a female opaline. I also had another female gold before the opaline. The other gold died overnight (I THOUGHT from stress) and now Im noticing that the gold is charging the opaline. At first the opaline was hiding all the time. Now, she comes out, and flees when the gold charges. I had read that the females would be less aggressive towards each other, if at all. Now, Im concerned for my opaline. I have a 10 gal. tank w/ 3 platys, 2 gobies, one juvenile white lyretail molly, and a catfish. I would not put more than one gourami in a 10 gal. tank at a time.

I dont find these fish aggresive at all Ive had them before, for 2-3 years and have never found them aggresive. In fact Ive had them being picked on and or just left alone.

We have 2 of these fun birds. Freckle and Jeckle both came from the same breeding pair, and we believe them both to be boys. We have raised them since they were each 6 months old like our children. They are very lovable, smart and entertaining.
Unfortunalty our lives have changed and we are in a situation where we need to find them a new home. They are very loud and someone should have room for an aviary in their yard for them to play during the day.
We live on our boat in San Diego and find that the places we intend to travel will not allow us to take them with us. Please write to us if you are interested and tell us your situation.

We have a blue parakeet named Periwinkle (Peee-Diddy for short. He is very sweet and loving and loves to fight with our fingers when he is on the back of the chair. He also loves to try and pry my earrings off! He sits on our heads and plays with our hair, too.

I want to let everyone know a good tip ... the parakeets love greens, so we buy ours a pot of grass at the pet store and keep it moist for him. He especially loves it when we pull the grass out and hold the white root out for him to chew on. Mmmmm, mmmmm ... that is his favorite part!

This fish was added to my reef a few months ago and has been proven to be the hardest working algae grazer in my tank. He is non-stop all day long on the glass, sandbed and live rock. Awesome fish!

this is one of my favourite fish but do not keep with aggressive fish or the will get bullied, best to keep with other smaller fish and other dwarf gourami but not flame gourami as they are too aggressive.
