It's better than goldfish. Most people use goldfish as wedding centerpieces and not everyone can afford to adopt a goldfish that can potentially reach 8-10 inches on average.

Believe me, I know. I've had to rescue 2 feeders that hid in my friend's cichlid tank long enough that they couldn't be eaten. I've got them with my fantail Xerxes in a 15 gallon. I know it's overstocked, but I keep up with the water changes and maintenance. The nitrate reading skyrockets after just 2 days, so it's 25% water changes every other day. They're a pain in my rear, but they're great for relieving stress, and they're beautiful in their own right.

Yeah, that's my biggest nightmare. I'd rather see a Betta in a small tank that's regularly cleaned and fed well then one of those stupid, stupid 'Betta vase' things, the plant consumes the poop and feeds the fish so you'll never ever have to clean the water of feed him...! grrrrrrr

Well the first answer is just lack of info.
The second answer is lack of info.
The third answer is just plain stupid. That's totally uncaring and trying to do what you want instead of what the fish needs. It is also lack of info.
The 4 and 5 ones are lack of info.

I picked the 3 answer.
lol
