Betta books

I recently got offa amazon 2 books with detailed info on bettas. 1. Animal Planet Aquarium Care for Bettas by David Boruchowitz and 2. Bettas by Ph.D Robert J Goldstien. Amazon is cheaper than the ones at Petco ( $12 a book!!!?? ) The first one has loads of pretty photos and many tips on bettas, however, the 2nd one is mostly breeding/genetics but still awesome. Im getting the full version of that one at Petsmart :) I have the shortened version which strangely has the same fish on the animal planet book.... :/

any other great betta books out there?

I read the Animal Planet Betta Book.

It supplies the basic information from all the necessary equipment to breeding.

My Bettas:
Sashimi: Red Veil-Tail Male, May 2nd, 2011 (R.I.P)
Leela: Blue/Green Veil-Tail Female, May 14th, 2011
Gemini: Pearl/Green/Red Delta Male, May 21st, 2011 (R.I.P)

& Unnamed 5 Bettas

Old fisherman never die, they just smell like it.

I only have the animal planet one. It's okay, but it supplies more information on breeding and such. I want to write my own book on bettas someday. :)

The authoritative information and advice you need, illustrated throughout with full-color photographs--now revised and redesigned to be even more reader-friendly!

Known as the "Siamese Fighting Fish," the beautiful Betta, with vivid colors and long fins (in males), has enchanting elegance and grace. Yet Bettas can fight and bite, so it's best to keep just one in a tank. This guide helps you with everything from preparing for your Betta to maintaining an environment where it will thrive. It covers:
* Setting up an interesting aquarium
* Plants for the Betta tank
* Choosing non-aggressive tankmates
* Maintaining a healthy tank and healthy fish
* Feeding your Betta
* Breeding your Betta

Keeping a Betta is the perfect introduction to keeping tropical fish, a relaxing, rewarding hobby everyone can enjoy.

its a pdf file, very good book
