As long as your experiment is humane, I think it is a great idea to do your science project on bettas. Maybe when your research is complete, you could submit your work to the IBC for a Science Fair Prize?

@Dragonlady

OH MY GOSH SOO COOL:D That makes me want to make this totally awesome!
@Leeniex: Oh yes most definitely;D And of course it's going to be humane; I love my lil Charlie and Lulu with all my heart haha<3 However I think I've just read that it has to be in my school science fair, and my science fair doesn't allow live animals):

EDIT: I just rounded the handle of my fish net into a hoop and put it into my betta tank. My female swam through it instantly, and I rewarded her, but my male ignored it. I could do whether or not gender affects it!! Which is smarter, male or female? xD but this means I would have to get more betta fish to prove the tests.

This is my evil plan to get more fishes.Muahahah(: But I really don't have an idea for what to do, except the training/genders. Maybe I could do this: Are solitary fish smarter than individual schooling fish? (With the training)

You could teach your class about the misconceptions of Bettas, what conditions must they have in order to thrive (like any organism), where they come from (South Asia), how they breed, etc.

Good luck on your project.

Thanks Micho! Unfortunatly, it can't be like, a research paper. As like simple as that sounds, it has to be something with an experiment, using the Scientific Method:
1.) Problem
2.) Research
3.)Hypothesis
4.)Experiment
5.)Data Analysis
6.) Conclusion.
However, I will be sure to add those things, as like an opening and closing. I want this to be a very interesting project! :D Thank s though for trying to help!

bettas learn REALLY fast if they need to. i trained my blind betta to eat from a feeding ring, and he caught on within days!

I've been thinking of this as a science project (seriously sorry for the double-posts! Can't edit)

Are solitary fish that live on their own (bettas) smarter than an indivual fish that is usually a schooling fish?

I think I'm gonna get the r2 fish school, or make my own (Its like 30+ because of shipping)
