What other fish can I put with a male betta fish?
Asked By What was that!?,Last Answer By Dark Angel Rogue At 2010.01,1 Answers

I would love to hear any kind of fish, but I would prefer fish that are reasonably clean and easy to take care of like the betta is. My tank (now) has more than enough room for almost any fish.

I already know that male bettas do not go together, and I know that species releated to bettas cannot go together. Also, dont say none, I know they can live with other fish, I have seen it before.

Changing water in Betta fish tank: Dechlorinating the water and transferring the Betta fish?
Asked By Ûµ catâ„¢ Ûµ feels like purrin,Last Answer By natkk At 2010.01,1 Answers

If I leave the replacement water out for 24 hours before changing the water in the Betta's bowl, is it still necessary to add water conditioner (detoxifies chlorine, ammonia, etc)? I know that at least the replacement water will be room temp, but I'm wondering if letting the water sit for 24 hours will cause any chlorine to evaporate. Also, can you add water conditioner to the bowl when the Betta fish is in it?

How do you transfer a Betta fish from the bowl/tank to a temporary container while changing the water? I've read conflicting advice. Is it better to use a fish net to transfer the Betta to a temporary container or is it preferrable to scoop the Betta & some water out of its tank with a small container?

Thanks for any help.

Betta fish: Is it okay to remove my betta from his tank with my hand instead of a net?
Asked By Ûµ catâ„¢ Ûµ feels like purrin,Last Answer By Stephanie L At 2010.01,1 Answers

When I need to clean the tank, my betta fish is really hard to catch with the soft net since he swims wildly about when he sees it. But tonight, instead of using the net, I put my hand in the tank and scooped him up right away without a fight (I cupped my other hand over him so he wouldn't fall out of my hand.

So is there anything wrong with using my hand to catch my betta rather than using a net? He is the only fish in the tank.

When fishing for salmon are you allowed to clean the fish of the fish eggs then throw fish back in water?
Asked By gussie,Last Answer By caunltd At 2011.03,1 Answers

My grand kids and I were walking the rails and saw some men salmon fishing.One had a plastic bag of fish eggs.He made no secret of it and answered the kids questions.He told them that when he catches the salmon if someone wants the "meat" of the fish he gives that to that person and he keeps the eggs.He said if no one ants the "meat" he releases the fish.I don't know if he told us the truth or not.The reason I am asking is that on our walk we saw quite a few fish carcasses that had been completely cleaned out and the head and the outer "skin" was thrown back in the creek.I'm from Ontario, Canada if that makes a difference.

Anyone feel the same as I do about Betta fish?
Asked By Pairah Normel,Last Answer By alvin189 At 03.10,2 Answers

I've always felt sorry for them, just floating there with their fins drooping, faded in color and stationary in a tiny bowl. When I say anything about how sad they look, I get some jackass in my face about how they're from asia and they like little teeny ponds, you can't put them with other fish, this is how they're happy, etc.

I looked this up. Turns out I was right, Betta fish loving being enclosed in a tiny space is a myth thought up by petstores and fish dealers. They are found in huge bodies of water with colors 10x as vibrant, with other fish, etc. The tiny puddle thought process originated from the fact that they can jump from puddle to puddle to get somewhere.

Now I just see miserable fish every time I see them. What a wasted life for a little innocent fish that wants to swim. Does ANYONE look at Bettas and feel sorry for them? Did anyone else know they're not actually supposed to be cooped up like that?

"Pregnant" betta fish?
Asked By Alexa H,Last Answer By PeeTee At 2011.04,1 Answers

I have a female betta fish. I know female betta's don't get "pregnant", because they aren't live birthers or whatever it's called, haha. Anyway, she has the white dot on her "belly" and she won't eat a lot. I am a little worried, she eats SOME but like hardly! Is this normal?

My betta fish has fin damage, will he be okay?
Asked By Claire,Last Answer By Bettas r cool At 2011.04,1 Answers

I have a betta fish in a two gallon tank, with a filter. I normally keep the filter off, because it's too strong and my betta is always swimming against it/being hit by it's current. A few days ago I decided to turn it on, and I watched the tank for a few minutes, and everything looked fine. I came home and went to my room, and I saw him stuck in the filter!
I ran to the tank and unplugged the filter, and at first I thought he was dead :( But then he started swimming and moving, and I fed him, and watched him for 5 or 10 minutes. He seemed fine, so I carried on with my day.
The past couple days I've been keeping a close eye on him, and he's seemed fine, but today when I came home form school he was lying on the bottom of the tank in an awkward looking position, and for a moment I thought he was dead. I tapped the side of the tank, and he struggled to move, but he couldn't. One fin looked like it was working really hard, and the other didn't look like it was moving at all, but it was there. When he started to swim he swam kinda lopsided, and couldn't go for very long.
I'm not sure what to do! Why did it suddenly get worse, and what can I do to help him? Will it get better, or is he going to die soon? :((((((((((((((

Do I have a rare betta fish?
Asked By Ally Caffrey,Last Answer By DigitalOne At 2011.04,1 Answers

Well I just got my little guy today. A Delta tailed male with a purple body that fades into a bright fuchsia color toward the edge and onto the tail, which has little stripes of purple going down it. The color then stops at the edge into white all the way around his fin. He has spots of white on his head (witch is mostly fuchsia) right next to his gills I was just wondering because I was surprised to find such a beautiful fish in a pet store. Thanks in advance!
