It's so hard to explain... They for one, have so much personality. They flare at their food, jump for food, oh boy, mine will jump for anything. I already asked my parents for another one after a week of my 1st one... I always wanted a Betta. My parents wanted goldfish since they wanted a fish that could be in groups, I didn't agree. I always wanted more. Always will. :)
They follow fingers, try to bite gravel, sleep in barrels, act sick when they're not, BITE fingers, play tug of war, Haha they ALWAYS win. They're like puppies. Little companions. They poo, eat, sleep, but it's more than that. Bettas are one of the best fish out there. They're not 'Just fish'. Or a 'hobby'. Fish keeping is a hobby. But Bettas are our companions. Are right not, always will be. ^^
Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!
