Cool A post I thought I needed to make . . .

Bettas do NOT get lonely.
I've seen a lot of posts lately about people new to bettas that think their betta is lonely. They are aggressive and solitary fish, most bettas prefer to be alone. They can work in many community tanks and females in sororities. But having tankmates is not necessary.

Just thought I should clear that up.

Thanks for posting this. I'm not really know how people perceive their bettas being *LONELY*. If they're inactive then it usually means something else, not that they want a roommate or a mobile lunch. (Okay maybe they do want a mobile lunch but that's not the point, lmao)

Masiy you're awesome hahaha...I'm with you on that!! I had Spartan since he was 6 months, and got him used to other fish. But I got lucky LOL. Georgie looks alone.. Do I care? No lol he's SOLITARY, not LONELY. Plus he'd tear apart anything in there....bigger than him or smaller than him! :o

Hey, hey Maisy,


Male bettas do NOT need girlfriends!

I agree with Maisy and Sena. Just because a male betta blows a bubblenest doesn't mean he needs to be bred.

I'm pretty sure that my betta thinks my snail is an oversized piece of gravel. :)
