Really couldn't have said it better myself. I just wish people would research PRIOR to purchasing new pets, whether it's in regards to fish to other animals. Thank you, although those who really need to see this most likely won't...

Well, I'm in both camps...bettas being solitary fish don't generally need fishy companionship. However, they do get bored and need stimulation (hence the toys and fabulous planted tanks!) For my guys, the dwarf algae eater or the ghost shrimp seem to be plenty of company.
Now for my half moon fin biter...if he doesn't have a neighbor, he does a lot of damage to himself. Since I have put him in a tank next to my boy Rudis's tank, he's stopped fin-biting completely and has grown back about half of his tail. it's crinkley and not as flowing as before, but that's okay. In his case, a neighbor is a good thing. They don't challenge each other much, but do the occasional swim-by to check out the competition. I think a heavily planted divided tank would be as close to friendship as they'd get, though...

Ramble - Cool! I said in my original post that most bettas prefer to be alone, not all. I guess your HM is an exception. :) I'm glad that he has stopped fin-biting!!

Hey Maisy! Yep, there's an exception to every rule, but I do agree that 97% of the time bettas don't like to share... I wouldn't try it unless there were no other options, and DEFINITELY not sharing a single tank. Just too much risk.

I think "My Betta is lonely," can be translated as "I want more going on in my tank." That's how I ended up with a second dog. My first one was "lonely."
