I just found this website tonight and I'm so glad that I can talk to other people who love bettas too! I have 9 male bettas; 3 VT's, 4 CT's and 2 DT's. I've had my first betta for over a year and he's still healthy as a horse. *knocks on wood*
I'll try to get more pictures up. This picture shows one of my VT males, Fantasia (on the left) and one of my CT males, Flame (on the right).
