Yep. I've seen balloon mollies for instance be perfectly fine in fresh water (they are brackish water fish) but they live longer in their proper "habitat"

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

They seem really rare too x.x
Think I'll opt for fire tetras or cories instead.
Thanks :)

Cories are always awesome :3 have enough cover, bettas won't chase them. And no problem

I love cories sooo much. They are my (second) favorite fish

16 gallon - 11 neon tetras, 6 Pygmy cories, 6 kuhli loaches and 1 male Betta
15 gallon - 1 male Betta, 3 platies, and 5 guppies
6 gallon - 1 male Betta

All planted tanks

In My Opinion a Betta deserves nothing smaller than a 5 gallon tank

:3 If I could find cories here I'd add some to the sorority tank. They are pretty nice to have.

I've never even heard of cories until I found this site. But I'm sure my exotic pet store should have some kind, though those fire tetras really get me.

At least you have a pet store with fish that can be in something under 20 gallons here they have an ELECTRIC CATFISH a STINGRAY and some other wickedly awesome critters and fish that need to be in 40+ gallons... I saw a betta in with baby fantail goldies

I love stingrays and eels. Basically any oddly shaped fish. Wish I had room and money for stuff like that.
That poor betta must have been so confused :(

He was o_O plus most of the goldies had shredded tails and most had ich.... there was a heater in there, so it was bad for the goldies more than the betta
