I hope i have him for a long time to come! I just wish I knew how old he was. Dont know if he'll get any bigger or if he's already fully grown.


Hmmm if I got one, Id want it to be less aggressive since Id want a school of something in the tank with him :o

Hurley sounds fun though!

Yah - i'm not sure how he'd be with a school in his tank. May not be a good idea

A king betta would look lost in my tank I think, without something else in there with him XD

Hurley's bite feels like my sorority girlies bites. I can barely feel it. He might be holding back though because he knows where his food comes from. LOL

I love ryukin goldfish, they are so beautiful, especially the red and white ones! I think 2 could work in a 29 gallon by themselves, if you have a good filter. I don't know if they would do well with a betta, however, as the two have different temperature requirements. Perhaps you could get a separate tank for the king. Whatever you choose, I hope everything works out!

Bettas:
Ares - My flare happy warrior
Castiel - My inquisitive crowntail

Other fish:
Sammie,Jackie, and Jamie - My fun loving peppered cories.

In Memoriam:
Touchstone - My sweet fool
Freyja - My beautiful girl

Litlover: emeraldsky is considering what fish to put in the tank, the choice is between goldfish and a king betta, not both together!

From what I have read, King bettas are just like our regular sized bettas. Some are aggressive, others are docile. Just remember to always have a back-up plan if you decide to try a King with some schoolers.



Remember that the tank your fish lives in is his or her's whole world. Ask yourself this question, and answer it honestly: would you choose to live there?
