Hey guys! I'm really enjoying my experience as a Betta parent so far. I was a bit reluctant to join this site (I don't even have a Facebook!) but everyone seems knowledgeable and friendly. I've learned a lot of Betta care 101 from browsing the internet, but I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a good Betta care book. I know, there's not a lot in books these days that can't be found online, but sometimes you have to filter through so much crap! I just want a reliable print source that I can whip out whenever I need it (also to read on the toilet:oops:).

I'll reprint here a post I made in a thread a couple of months ago. It was one of my first posts, and it failed to revive the thread. (Perhaps better luck here?):

I have these books:
1. Bettas: A Complete Introduction by Walt Maurus
2. Bettas by Marshall E. Ostrow
3. Your Happy Healthy Pet: Betta(2nd Edition) by John H. Tullock
4. Quick and Easy Betta Care by T.F.H. Publications
5. Bettas: A Complete Pet Owner's Manual by Robert J. Goldstein, Ph.D.
6. Siamese Fighting Fish: Care, Selection, Breeding by Gene A. Lucas, Ph.D.
7. The Betta Handbook by Robert J. Goldstein, Ph.D.
8. Animal Planet Aquarium Care of Bettas by David E. Boruchowitz
9. Caring for Betta Fish: An Insider's Guide for Betta Lovers by Marcus Song

I especially like the Animal Planet book, Goldstein's Bettas: A Complete Pet Owner's Manual, Quick and Easy Betta Care and Song's book, which costs around $26; perhaps it can be had for less. A few of these I have not read yet. Several came through Amazon Marketplace, and the Lucas book came from IBC.
