The boyfriend said the same thing when I came home with my betta. "You need another fish like you need a hole in the head". This betta is now his favorite fish. Actually, he never even had a favorite fish before (to him they are all the same...boring!) and could care less about my hobby. The betta changed his mind and he actually shows interest because of this fish. He likes to feed it and always comments on what a "cool" fish he is. He could care less about the other fish....so...get one! Your hubby may surprise you, mine did!

I "fish sat" for a neighbor's betta and my Mom said, if you want one, get yourself one.She was fascinated with him in the beginning. So I got one and fell in love with them!

Doing a fishless cycle wii be a good learning experience for me. Have not lost any fish doing a fish cycle, but not in a hurry to have another tank to take care of! I see all the 'betta food" at the store, is this realy necessary? My fish already get a good variety. (blackworms, bloodworms, shrimp, flakes, and sinking foods) Also, are some bettas better than others, or would it be ok just to do a walmart rescue? Another question, I have a few cool hideouts im corrently not using, do bettas appreciate hide outs?

Getting the hubby interested, would be awsome! I spend a good 8 hrs on my fish a week. Maybe could talk him into a little help!

You can feed your betta a variety of foods besides pellets, which should be his staple diet. They will eat blackworms, bloodworms and brine shrimp.There are different varieties of bettas. There are veiltails, crowntails and halfmoons. Its up to you, whether or not to get a rescue or choose a more healthy one.Yes, bettas like a place to hide. They like plants, too, real or solk would be nice. Hope that helps:)

The actual nutrition content of a good betta pellet isn't much different from a good tropical flake food, but a lot of people have trouble getting their bettas to eat flakes, which is why the pellets are recommended. The live and frozen foods you already have will make good treats.

dramaqueen, when you said that, I thought you meant your mother does a whole lot of nothing. Haha.

Yeah, they're pretty easy to take care of. Feed them and keep their water clean and they're happy. They have the most wonderful personalities and are fun to interact with. :)
