I have a low creek behind my house and even though it's low, it's STILL probably a bit deeper then my 16 gallon is.

A betta's natural habitat, while it might not be deep, is still a MUCH greater water volume than one of those tiny vases people put these fish in. The fish in that picture above has a lot more room to move.

Question

Well, how many bettas would you say are in that picture of the big puddle? If there are 5 then they do live in a lot of space in nature. If there are lots, then I dunno.

Wow thanks for the post! I went to the pet store to look at the diff betta's they sell and they were all squeezed in small plastic drinking cups with lids with little slits and all of them were either dead or dying poor things.. they even feed them flakes or like 7 pellets it's really sad cause pet stores don't hire people qualified for the job and know what they are doing.

I always found it odd when people would tell me that bettas dont mind the little cups they are stored in when at pet stores because of this myth...thanks for busting it, now I have some people to correct! :)

If you put a fish in a large puddle, they'll die within days!

What do you mean put a fish in a large puddle?
Where do you think fish live in the wild?

(note, a large puddle in my mind is large- A few feet wide, a foot deep...
which would be close to 25-30 gallons if my math is right... a sq ft is close to a gallon...)

The only reason they are able to coexist well is the fact they can establish territories without touching each other's boundaries. That's the whole point of why you cannot really combine more than one male betta in the same tank. A tank is an enclosed system. Nature on the other hand differs. You can't compare both at all.

If the large puddle was really shallow, it's a possibility...I've always thought of puddles being VERY shallow. But that is my own connotation.
