hey guys post #2 day on this website #2
Anyhow today we are gonna discuss how to pick out a Betta fish and wich one is perfect to you. Now, firstly is to "let the betta choose you" I know from experience that betta fish will look at you in order to choose you. The fish will often follow your direction from the cup. You also NEED to be a good inspector. Look for parasites which look like little bumps in the fish. Torn fins also-they lead to infection once added to your tank at home. Whatever the cause be careful and let the fish choose you! until next time!!!!!-nyrolovesbettafish :nicefish:

If all fish were equally healthy and responsive, letting one chose you would be a valid approach. But that's overly simplified. There are many reasons to chose a particular fish. Color, sex, fin type, attitude are just the beginning of the list.

While it is good to check for unhealthy conditions, many are not observable in a petstore environment and many new keepers do not know precisely what to look for. Unfortunately the luck of the draw has much to do with getting a healthy Betta. Buying from a breeder maximizes this luck...usually.
