Female Betta Fish Doll

Okay... so I just got into Betta fish. It's been fun so far.

Please, I know how this sounds, but I am innocently asking this question.

So I know I will never breed fish, but I was wondering if I could get my Male Betta fish a "female" betta fish doll.

Or maybe cutting out a picture of a female and putting it on the outside of his tank.

Would that be cruel or would that make him happier?

Different people have different opinions. In the wild females who just float there are a waste of the males time and he will attack her...so he may try to attack the glass.

It would stress him after awhile, because he wouldnt be able to do anything with her. He'd possibly flare alot, which could make him blow his fins. I'm sure your bettas happy anyway :D If you want a tankmate for him, or something that will entertain him, snails are a good choice :D

I don't think it will stress him.....being in constant sight of another bettas is WAY better than being visually seperated...unless you have a very heavy finned HM.

It might be better to show him a video of a flaring female betta in a video every once and a while to keep him entertained.

I'm not sure if this will entertain the betta. But it really entertained me. Lol.

Seriously, don't think showing another betta (picture, doll, real) constantly will be good for him. A few minutes at a time, once in a while should be ok. He should be happy as he is.

Just show him a mirror every once in a while to get him excited. Bettas don't get "lonely".
