My female is very curious about my male (who is about 2 feet from her and covered in a towel :P), but poor Donald is terrified of his own reflection! :P My fish don't act like bettas, I guess. I would never put them together because I thought they were "lonely"... Only schooling fish get lonely. Sally probably just thinks that Donald is something she should be eating.

I have a 26 gallon divided for 2 male bettas, they'll occasionally meet at the divider swim along flare at each other and then swim away. But for the most part they mind their business and do what they do.

For the sake of offering a story: this Sunday I'm going into Toronto for a family thing, and while I'm there I'll be picking up a male and a female who are being kept in the same (tiny, tiny) tank. I think I'm developing a twitch in my eye here. I mean, even if bettas weren't a species of KIND OF VERY AGGRESSIVE FISH, I don't think anyone seems to realize that, you know, if you leave a male and female anything together for any length of time, there is a possibility that you might end up with hundreds of fry.

So yes. Sunday we are driving an hour and paying $30 for two sickly fish and a barely-suitable tank. (And then by god I'm going to eat birthday cake until I explode.)

'm pretty sure that my betta thinks my snail is an oversized piece of gravel. :)
My bettas probably think mine are mobile mossballs, since they look like moss balls till they start to climb up the side of the tank

I wish I read this thread a long time ago. I got platys for my first betta, it didn't work out, and now I have a separate tank for the platys I really wasn't that into. If that wasn't bad enough, Petco must have sold me a preggers female because now I have some platy babies too!

Don't get me wrong, the platys are cute and nice little fish .. but I really just want betta tanks, and the platys poop a million times more than my bettas! I am cleaning the bottom of their tank a lot.

I also got ghost shrimp which died, and I really hated those things. They annoyed every fish I had.

No more tankmates for my bettas!
