As long as you don't treat her better than your first, they will be okay. You should still spend the same amount of time with your other one and make sure he knows you love him too....or just that he doesn't feel left out. I don't think they really understand what you are talking about, but they can get jealous/upset if you aren't paying as much attention to them. They know your face and like seing you. When I got my two newer bettas Autumn and Shimmy, my first betta Thai didn't seem too fond of them and would stare at the others when I went over to see them, so I will usually feed him first or stop by his tank first before going over to the others.

I think you have your answer then. :)

As smart as I think bettas are/appear to be I think it highly unlikely that it will feel sad or jealous because you like one fish more than the other.

That doesn't make sense. If they are that smart, then they would understand and feel sad about it because they would see you were paying more attention to the other, that is if they all lived in the same room.
Nevermind I think I know what you meant, lol

I think you should re-read... "are/appear to be".

No where did I say bettas are smart... and then again you run into to problem of how I defined 'smart'... but that is all semantics... either way I doubt a betta will get jealous/sad.

See, I don't think they see us at all. I think they see a giant fish pellet walking in the room on legs. :P

Just kiddin'. I don't think they can get jealous but I DO think they're always looking for our attention. Whether it's giving them clean water, or food, or enrichment.
