Yeah I heard tailbiters can do better with companions but I have to agree, other than that, if it/he/she is fine as they are, leave it alone!If you think they're lethargic-work out what is actually wrong instead of deciding the fish just MUST be lonely! :D nice thread maisy (love sena's touch) this should be stickied!

I think my two boys enjoy each others company (through the divider).
But I don't really they care for the cories, even if I have seen Reuben sitting beside them.

Alright, sorry to be the sour sally, but while I agree with the statement, it wasn't exactly tactful.

We have to remember that there are people here that are new to betta fish and their care and some people here are not as thick skinned as others. The way this thread is going it looks more like you are making fun of ignorant people, which isn't the best way to promote this site or the principles of betta care that it encourages.

So let's revise.

Betta fish do not require a friend or tank mate. Most are alright all on there own. We as humans tend to place human traits on our pets and it is totally understandable to look at a fish all alone in his tank and say "He looks so lonely" because we are human. Which is why there are lists of compatible tank mates all over this site. If someone feels their pet is lonely, get them a compatible friend, just be warned it might not work out. However, if the fish is acting lethargic and slow, like he is "bored" then he might be sick, and those symptoms should be posted in the illness section.


Bettas don't get lonely, they have us to keep them company. :)

Sad thing is I am talking about people who have owned bettas over and over and over and still think they need buddies. For instance, a woman I know owned a betta fish for years. When she got a new male after that one passed she felt he NEEDED a girlfriend so she stuck a female in there. They lived for about a year then both passed away "unusually" and she claimed "heart break".
