There are several good articles on basic Betta care at the top of this section and at the top of the Betta Care section.

After reading those, you will probably have questions. We will happily answer any questions you may have.

you can if you keep doing water changes but i don't suggest you do that.
Hms need space to flare and spread their fins so maybe at least a 1 gallon.
You could flare him once a day is you like to.

The kindness one does for an animal may not change the world........but,it will change the world for that one animal.Stop animal cruelty!!

It's better if you let him flare at another male,it make the hm more aware of the males presence.
Yes i think 10 minutes is enough.

There are photo contests here on the forum: Betta Fish and Betta Fish Care. Look on the right side of the page.

If you want to show (compete) your Betta in person, you should contact the IBC (International Betta Congress) in Japan.

To be sure his fins are safe, use live plants or very soft gentle silk plants.

I see, thank you for teach me.
Okay, I'll check photo later.
I am not sure we have IBC, but I am search it.
I see fins are more careful, lve plants or sink plants.

Thank you so much!
