You mean you don't have lids? I would be so scared to do that!

Meet me and my fish in my (somewhat neglected) journal:

I do have a lot of top cover: Frogbit, Red Root Floaters, Dwarf Water Lettuce. I don't encourage my Betta to jump for their food and when I fed pellets I placed them on the surface; not dropped. Now that I feed frozen the pipette is always under the water.

Yes they are! XD VTs definitely have a special spot in my heart! I've always loved their personality! Plakats come in a very close second as my favorite tail type! So much personality and energy!

I like plakats best. At first, I thought crowntails were weird, but now I like them. I can't have any, though... my water is way too hard.

30 years ago I loved veil tails. I always had one. Funny, even though it was before the internet I always made sure they were warm enough and had clean water. Ever since I found out about wild bettas, nothing in the fancy betta world looks as beautiful to my eyes.........well maybe one tiger half moon that I saw on Aquabid a few years ago.

Any betta could jump for unknown reason.

I like Plakat! They are OK with stronger filter outflow and I have to worry less about fin biting and fin rot.

I'm also a huge fan of PKs. I don't have any longfin Bettas anymore, with the exception of my first ever Betta who is a EEDeT, a gold dragon VT I have named Midas, and my angry pink VT Diablo.

Check out my journal - SIP to all of the Bettas I've lost

My very first betta (the one I got before Ossu) was also a plakat, who I had only for a month. Why? He jumped out of his tank during the night and died. Tank had a glass cover and plenty of surface plants - somehow he still managed to find the small gap near the filter...
