Yes he is. I came home to check him out, which I have been pumped up about all day. For him to dart all over the place. But as I sit here doing my school work on the side of his tank; he just seems to want to float and watch me. It's interesting how these little buggers work. They me aggressive with other fish but they are fascinated by humans.

I agree, its amazing to see their little personalities ;)
In the case of my females when ever I come to the tank the first thing they think is "is the food lady giving us food!" and they all come visit together where I am and will follow me if I move to the other side of the tank lol
Its cute that he watches you :) he must want to now how to do homework

How many females do you have? How were you able to get them to mingle with each other? I have never owned a female. I have always had males. But I do want to (later down the road) buy one. I would like to breed one day. I've been doing research on all of it and I think it would be a beautiful thing to experience. I already bread and raise my own guppies. However they are to feed my False Map Turtle.

Exclamation

Can not wait to get home and take Day 5 pictute of transformation. Also hoping to get off earlier to be able to go shopping for more aquatic plants after work. Anyone have any ideas? Looking for something that will grow quick, not to large, and has some color - like reds. Also wanted lots of leaves. If you have an known species of aquatic plant that you would say fits the description - please do not hesiate to post!

I have 10 females in a 40 gallon tank :). They live together in sorority. Usually sororities are hit and miss but luckily mine worked out. All of my girls are relatively docile to one another in betta terms :p Females are fun to have. They also have big personalities like males.
Just some extra info on sororities:
The minimum tank size is 10 gallons
Minimum of 4 bettas, the more the better but keep in mind the size of the tank
Tends to work best when they go into the tank young or siblings
They should be all put in at the same time so one doesn't think they have intruders on their territory.
You have to be prepared if they don't work or if one gets beat up to much or one is to aggressive or if it falls apart- always have a back up plan
Unfortunetly sororities are not a %100 definite thing and sometimes all the sudden your girls cant stand each other and can no longer live together
Lots of cover and hiding places so the girls can get away from each other if need be
Some fin nipping is to be expected when first starting out as they are astablishing rank

Hopefully this was helpful :p

What a noticeable difference even after that first day!

Bettas are such personable creatures! Having my two boys has shown me just how amazing these fish are!

oooo plants!

Went and got two more plants. The store did not have a wonderful selection but choose two that fit my taste. Also I was going for some hiding spots.
