The silliest thing you have heard about bettas.

What's the most absurd thing someone told you about fish?

For me is when I was in 1st grade, (I got bit by the betta bug at a young age)I was talking to a friend about fish. She said that if you name your fish they die quicker.

Bettas live in hoofprints left by Oxen in Thailand.. and that's why your supposed to keep them in small containers

Bettas will freak out and die if you put them in a large container

Goldfish can be kept in smaller tanks because "if they don't have room to grow, than they won't grow and they won't outgrow the 10 gallon tank"

Bettas only live for a week! (from my friend in third grade)
1fish2fish-I have heard the same thing about goldfish! It's just not true!
That bettas fight to the death in the rivers. (They won't if they have space to retreat)

stick a plant in a vase, throw a betta in and you have a "self-sustaining ecosystem".

I head from someone when I first started buying bettas that female bettas were really ugly and I would never want to buy one if I ever saw them 0_o how untrue is that...they are beautiful! I have more females than males.

When I got Tango his 16 gallon at Petco the guy who worked in fish told me a fantail goldfish would make a great tank mate for a betta. :/
