  1. Wild Betta Forum
    Hey everyone! I'm new here. Early today I purchased a betta fish from the lfs that was mislabelled for $5 (they had him with the females even though he had made a bubble nest in his bowl). He looks nothing like the other betta splendens they carry and to me he looks like he might be a betta...

    Hello! Now that my period of mourning is over (I had to euthanize my last betta on May 8th because he had been really sick and wasn't getting any better) I decided to go out and get a new betta to keep me company while at work. :) Here he is! I decided to get this one because he...

    So I got myself some new Bettas this weekend. I got quite a few but there is one that stands out. Alright... let's begin. So if anyone is curious, I live in Thailand. This was how I discovered betta fish. Living in Thailand makes it quite a bit easier for me to find wild bettas. I spotted them...

    I currently have four male Bettas - three Splendens and a Smaragdina. Two of my boys are healing up from some fin-tearing from plastic plants. Luckily, our petsmart finally carries live plants that aren't half-dead, and those plastic plants are out of the tanks now, and all injuries are examined...

    So, I've never really seen my Marble boy (although he's mostly colored up as a Royal or Turquoise Blue now) flare and show his beard. He has flared his gill-covers but I've never seen his beard. At first, I thought: 'Maybe he just needs to get a little older, maybe he isn't fully mature yet."...

    So yesterday I finally went and bought myself a betta! I HAD been intending to set up my main tank as a sorority, but I've been having misgivings about the whole sorority tank thing, even though I'd really like one. (It just seems like it could go wrong so easily!) There were only 2 bettas at my...

    I hate to spam up the Betta Chat sub forum, but look what I just found surfing Craigslist!! (I mean, I didn't call because I'm not interested in show bettas... but still.) I'm looking for others who are interested in bettas. To share knowledge, tips, equipment, techniques, etc. If you're into...

    Bettas show left-and right-hand preferences ! The Siamese fighting fish, Betta splendens, not only shows right- and left-hand preferences but also has accompanying body asymmetries according to research published in a recent issue of Behavioural Brain Research. Lead...
