Marine Betta

Has anyone seen these before? My husband found this. He is trying to convince me to ok a saltwater tank. I am guessing he is hoping that I will want one now since there is a saltwater betta. It is pretty neat. If you look closely it does have the same finage as a VT betta.


19 males all but 1 in 5 gal tanks
1 giant in a 16 bowfront
52 female sorority, 15 raspboras, 6 corydora sterbia and BN pleco in a 72 gallon

Other tanks - 135 gallon african cichlids, 48 breeder SA cichlid, 30 gallon hex goldfish, 30 gallon community fish and shrimp tank, 12 gallon hex growout

2 Chihuahuas, 2 1/2 lab 1/2 weim dogs and 2 cats
1 Husband and 1 3 year old princess

That is SO cool! Saltwater sounds so hard >.< I'll stick with freshwater bettas. Haha, that "marine betta" would be cool though :D

Seems kind of hard to me too and expensive. My husband is definitely pushing though since our 72 bowfront is drilled for salt (overflow box). It has a patch right now covering it but could easily be removed. Plus I end up being the only one that takes care of the tanks. I don't know if I am ready for that!

It's not actually a betta or related to the Betta genus at all. It's just a common name for that fish because it's similar in fin structure.

Well yeah it has a completely different scientific name. I never thought it was related to a freshwater betta. I am blonde but I'm not that dumb. Lol! I don't like bettas because they are of the betta genus but because of how they look. Which is why my husband new I would think this is cool. It is just neat looking.

There are some amazing marine fish out there. I actually prefer the appearance of a marine aquarium to a freshwater one, but they seem like way too much work.

I think they are a lot of work too but you talk to anyone that has one and they say they aren't. I am just not ready to take that step yet. It all started because I said I thought the small coral tanks were cute. OMG! My husband has been looking at protein skimmers and sumps now just because of my little comment. Jeez!
