Thanks, guys. If no additional suggestions have been made by tomorrow morning then I'll set it as our new betta fish care sticky and start working on the next one.

Sure thing, prettylittlefishy, but I haven't been the only one working on these improvements. kuklachica got the ball rolling on the moderator side of things, and of course we have all of you to thank for contributing information.

I just want to make a comment on how much a approve of this list.

I'm new here, very very very new, and I ended up with a Betta almost on accident as I have a bad habit of once a year or so being super impulsive. It took me about an hour after getting the fish to feel bad for it in it's .5 gal [even though he was way happier there in the cup of death] and I sought out proper advice for my baby.

I'm going to admit I was very shy and insecure at first. I was terrified of asking for 'what tank to buy' advice from people because I thought I would be scolded for getting him in such a tiny one. I almost didn't post. Everyone here was good fish-mommies and daddies and I felt awful.

But I did and got, if only two, very helpful and nice replies. In short order I had gotten a 3 gal Marineland Eclipse with the works and my baby is happily swimming about his new territory.

Looking all over the threads I really really appreciated knowing what people thought that base good standard was of Betta keeping. [Not the base that they could limp by in] I don't have the most space or tons of money but I was sure I could provide him a happy and long life if only led in the right direction.

Some people have 10 Gal, some 22, and some 2.5. Some like their fish with others, and some alone. Some tanks planted some tanks not. This is all well and good and I love hearing peoples pros and cons but above that I like a list telling newbies like myself what is /needed/ in general cases before what can be done to expand.

Honestly you can't make a standard with so many ways of doing things. It really depends on why you have the betta (pet or breeding).

I don't know how many of the 9 pages of this thread you read, but we are discussing improving our stickies, not imposing any kind of an official standard.

I've gone ahead and made the draft Betta Fish Care thread our new general Betta Fish Care sticky. Thanks, everyone! I'll hopefully be able to post a draft of an improved Betta Fish Illnesses sticky soon for your consideration.

Easy to read, well thought out, solid info, and nicely worded.

One of the better stickies I've seen anywhere. Nice job!
