Bettas are extremely addictive and they have great personalities!

My bf didnt believe me when i told him that they would recognize us, because he would associate us with feeding time i guess?, anyways he gets so happy if we come up to the tank now!

I don't know if they recognize us or not but I've heard stories where the fish were more active and happy when their owners were around than when someone was taking care of them while the owner was gone.

I use half a teaspoon to a full teaspoon of salt per gallon of water.

Stress Coat dosen't really need to be measured when it comes to fins.

Keep water clean so nothing gets infected (not a pretty sight).

And yes, FEMALES WILL KICK A MALES BUTT!!!

I use salt as a preventative for disease and bettas have a great salt tolerance.
Stress Coat can be used as your regular water conditioner (it's what I use). Just follow the directions on the bottle.
