Halfmoons are pretty peaceful and would be ok with the right tank mates.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

see... The real task is getting people who can take the time, effort to know fish personalities. It's not about just dropping a whole bunch of fish into a tank together.

Really, it's about research, and more research.

I wish we had good folks who really cared about the animals in stores like these.

When I hear stories of animals being heartlessly dropped and abandoned in tanks with 'vicious' fish - it just makes me wonder if our society is being over run by psychopaths. (it can't be all stupidity.) If they're laughing when you try to save the poor creatures from harm - then you know it's intentional torture.

It makes our world a much sadder place... when stuff like that happens so needlessly.

Girls

TheJewels... 20 g H plantedsorority - 4 princesses & 3 zebra otos

I feel so bad for painted fish :( Animal cruelty is so terrible. In other news, I agree that bettas like to be alone but, only sometimes. Mine will hide in my castle structure for hours but I will walk by sometimes and see him swimming with my rasboras. Then he goes back into his castle and chills. He is obviously the coolest fish in the tank. For sure.

Purple and Red Veiltail Betta - 10 gallon
Blue Crowntail Betta - 2.5 gallon
