I get the red toy thing. That sounds like something I would have done when I was a kid. How old is your sister?

Oh, okay then. I feel bad for most, too. :\
She turned 6 in February. Her main problem really is speech delay. Let's talk more about you instead. Besides, the more I talk about her autism, the more I feel bad for her. :(

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

I think a crowntail is furthest away from the wild however they look like the fins might be some sort of camouflage and in my mind look like they could be a different type of betta.

Oh I'm sorry :(...Don't feel too sad. I am autistic and wouldn't trade it for anything! Because of my autism, some animals get a great home :)

So...Even though the wild betta splenden in the video looked light....wild betta splendens have dark reddish bodies?

Yes. Vts are technically closer to wilds then halfmoons. Ee definatly do not have trouble swimming, I own them and really like them.

No, it's alright. :) I think her case is worse, though.
Yes, they should be dark. Even the majority of wild bettas have dark bodies for camouflage and other reasons.

Matts - I meant the ones with HUGE ears. Like this, even bigger! If they don't have trouble swimming, they should take more effort into swimming and in a filter current.. Oh.

Honestly, in a unfiltered tank (what I keep most of my males in) they would do fine.
