i'm just as curious as aunt kymmie...are you having your bettas fight purposely? and feeding them only dried blood worms can cause lots of problems with them getting constipated, you should get some betta pellets. i recommend hikari betta bio gold pellets, or wardleys pellets, my bettas love them. you can give your bettas the dried blood worms as a treat maybe 1-2 times a week though.

I was wondering the same thing when I read that - it sounds as if you are just having the fight for the fun of it.

I want to know the same thing. Don't be on this website if you fight bettas. It's WRONG!!! We all love our bettas. None of us want to hear that. So please, if you're fighting for entertainment, get off this site. We don't encourage that at all.

You can't house bettas together, EVER. And you can't just feed them blood worms. They NEED pellets.

yes, don't fight your bettas. that is exactly what it sounds like. this is a betta CARE site, not a betta KILL site. I know i can't change your mind about fighting them if that's what you're doing, but if you do then get off this site because you're not going to get any polite responses about you fighting them. and they need pellets, not bloodworms.

I would recommend leaving now if you are fighting your Betta. It's sick and cruel. Don't expect to get any advice from me.

bingobongo, several members have already asked if you are fighting your fish deliberately and advised you that bettas need to be housed separately but you have failed to respond. If you wish your bettas to remain happy and healthy it is imperative that you house them seperately, and as a matter of urgency. Please let us know whether you doing this and that you are not fighting your fish on purpose.

Thanks
