This probably looks and sounds dumb, but I'm doing a little project for some school work on bettas/fish keeping and I need to survey some people. I didn't know where else to put this, I hope this is allowed! If you don't mind sparing a minute of your time, would any of you mind filling this quick survey out?
Thanks~!

2. What made you interested in Bettas?


3. What kind of fish do you keep?

1. When did you first get interested in owning fish?
My bf bought me a 45 gal tank for Christmas 2007


2. What made you interested in Bettas? How beautiful they are and thier personalities


3. What kind of fish do you keep? Boesmani rainbows, tetras, cories, bettas, green tiger barbs


4. What size tanks do you keep them in? 75 gallon community tank and all 6 bettas are in 2.5 gallon tanks


5. How many tanks do you have? 7


6. What kinds of Bettas are your favourites? All of them. I can't pick a type thats a fav. (sorry)


7. What do you do to maintain your fish and their tanks? Weekly water changes and varied diet including frozen bloodworms, brine shrimp, daphnia


8. Have you ever bred your fish? No


9. How much time do you spend on your fish? My bf will tell you it's too much LOL. Seriously I try to give them some attention each day but spend at least 4-5 hours each week on maintenance/water changes


10. What advice would you give people who might like to start keeping fish? Do not attempt fishkeeping unless you make the commitment to keep them healthy and are willing to put in the time to care for them properly. And plan to spend some serious cash if you have multiple tanks.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

1. When did you first get interested in owning fish? When I was really young. We used to keep bettas, goldfish, tadpoles, newts, etc.


2. What made you interested in Bettas? Their personalities, and the fact that no two are the same.


3. What kind of fish do you keep? At the moment only bettas!


4. What size tanks do you keep them in? For now they all have 1 gallon tanks. Once this move eventually happens we're going to have some upgrading going on. :)


5. How many tanks do you have? 5


6. What kinds of Bettas are your favourites? Partial to VTs but after getting my newest betta I'm starting to like CT's a bit more.


7. What do you do to maintain your fish and their tanks? one 100% water change once a week, 50% 2 or 3 times a week. fed twice a day, all the attention they want at night.


8. Have you ever bred your fish? noooo no no. Not ready to be a grandma. :)


9. How much time do you spend on your fish? My schedule is based around them sometimes... It's definitely worth it to see them healthy and happy.


10. What advice would you give people who might like to start keeping fish? DO YOUR RESEARCH. It's depressing how many bettas you see in terrible conditions. Before you buy, make sure you have the time and the space for one of these guys. They say they're low maintenance but anyone on this forum will tell you otherwise!
