My Betta Photo Journal

It's been a while since I've been active on here. College started, I was always busy, and so I stopped keeping bettas for a while. My last betta, Banana, passed away about two years ago. I'm in my fourth year of college now and was really missing bettas. I needed a stress reliever. Something I could come home to and admire and take care of. Bettas really are calming and fun to watch. Anyway, I decided to own bettas again, and... now I have 12. Oops.

This is basically going to be betta picture spam. I'll post pictures of my bettas as I get good shots of them. I thought I'd share them with you all. Feel free to comment and ask anything. :)

First up: Squirt. He was the first guy I picked up. I've had him for about three months now. He lives alone in a Marineland 5 gallon Portrait. Nice tank, really only holds 4 gallons though. Squirt moves too much to get any decent pictures of. (That goes for all of my fish, really.)

Betta #2

I didn't mean to get a second betta when I got Mermaid. I walked into Petco for some fish food and saw a tiny clamped and pale female. I just couldn't leave her behind.



I put her in one of those horrible 0.5g betta keepers I had in storage while I set up a small tank for her. (I used to use this for travel.) This was the next morning. She had unclamped and colored up some.



This is Mermaid now. Hard to believe this is even the same fish! Honestly didn't expect this. She's in a 20g planted sorority. (The water is a bit yellow from driftwood leaching tannins. Tank was cycled. Everyone gets along!)

Betta #3

Newest in the sorority is Coral. (That's Piglet behind her. Piglet isn't clamped, she just likes to avoid the camera and zip around as fast as she can.) Coral competes with Piglet in the "always hungry" department. She tries to eat everything. She'll take a big chomp out of a plant and then spit it out because she doesn't like it.

I've never seen a betta with her coloration, so I had to get her. (There's always an excuse, right? lol)

Oops. I just realized my picture quality kind of sucks. Sorry, everyone. How did I make them blurry by resizing them smaller? You'd think that someone who will soon have two bachelor's of science degrees would be better at technology... not I.

Thank you! :D

Just rediscovered the fact that betta fish have teeth. I completely forgot until I stuck my arm to replant and felt sharp little pin pricks. One of my girls, Vivi, was trying to eat my arm. I was definitely not expecting that to hurt as much as it did. I mean, it was more surprise than pain but still haha

Sorority pictures

Thank you, moodynarwhal!

Again, the water is yellow tinted from the driftwood. So hard to get non-blurry pictures of them, especially when they're begging for food. Piglet and my white unnamed female aren't in the pictures. They hadn't yet realized they were about to be fed.

Coral in the front and Cabbage behind her.

Redid Squirt's tank this weekend. Wish it would have turned out better, but he seems to like it :)
