Yup. They're not AS intelligent such as a dog, but they are. ^^ Mine sheds after a 100% water change. :0

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Yes! in my opinion, they have the most personality and intelligence out of all the freshwater aquarium fish species. The next person who says that they're "dumb decorative creatures" will get a slap from me.

(and Pilot00, I just noticed, you're a fellow EU person! It's nice to finally see another here!)

Hmm... My baby Fitzwilliam was one that my mom got me about 3 or 4 years ago as a "surprise" gift with a fish bowl. TBH, I didn't like him at first. I didn't name him, and I didn't like his colors and was a VT, plus my sister got the multi colored CT. But over the years he's out lived every other betta I've had. He's been from a 1g tank to a 2.6g to a 55g to a 2.5 g to an 8g where he now resides alone in his older age. He's lived through high ammonia levels, careless care taking, moves, and much much more! I just love how he thinks he's regal. He'll swim by when I'm at my desk almost like saying 'look at me! I'm beautiful and you love me!'. He hunts down his pellets and swims through brine shrimp. He's my baby and that's what makes him special!

The best way to help is to be forgiving. People aren't made with a book of ultimate information in their head. We need to inform, not insult; give advice, not lectures; and realize we're all human and we all make mistakes

Awww... That's cute. All animals are special. Whether a shrimp or a Betta. ^^ Sorry about your past Bettas. He's been through so much.
