The best fish!
I have 2 male bettas and I love them so much. They are so intelligent and always swim to the front of their tanks when I enter the room. One is in a 5.5 gallon and the other is in a 3 gallon. They both know tricks also, how to jump, swim through a hoop, and come when called. These are marvelous fish. I believe you should PUT YOUR BETTA IN A 2.5 GALLON OR LARGER. I just want people to know they are not happy in bowls. Ammonia and toxic sludge build up very fast in a bowl, and It will slowly kill your fish. Please do your research!

I made the mistake of getting my first bettas at a low end pet store. They were healthy for a while before things went south.
My betta Boaz was grumpy, but he was really happy in his tank with his buddies, a cory and a pleco. They got along great, as Boaz ventured all around the tank, and the two stayed at the bottom.
My other betta, Gadreel, a crowntail, never had anything wrong with him. He didn't have any tank mates, but he sure knew when I had a camera in front of him! He'd raise his fins (not flare) and always seemed to make faces at me!
My female betta Becky is in rough shape, too.
I lost the both of them too soon and I'm really anticipating getting another one today.

You will fall in LOVE!
I love my betta! I had no idea they had so much peronality! I bought mine to have as a buddy for my desk at work. I quickly upgraded his 1 gallon to a 3 gallon because I strongly believe that the 1 gallon was just too small. He is as happy as can be and gets excited whenever I sit down at my desk! Great fish for beginners! Just make sure you do it right and give them at least 2.5 gallons and a tank that has a filter in it with lots of plants and hiding places!

If your going to get a fish, get this one
I have had fish for over 4 years, and this is probably my favorite. Currently, I have 3 male bettas. Females are good too, but have smaller fins. Betta fish are VERY low maintenance, but that does not mean you can put them in a bowl. I recommend a 2.5 gallon and up for a betta.
The only con I have about these fish is that you CANT keep males together. However, you CAN keep females together. If you are going to keep females together, make sure that you bring a mirror with you and hold it up to them to make sure that they dont flare. If they flare, they are a male, and you cant keep males and females/males together.
These are great pets for young and older kids. I definitely recommend these fun and beautiful fish!
