Betta fish are one of my favorite pets. I used to breed and sell them for show, but have since set my sites on improving the care they recieve in pet stores, and educating the public on their proper care. It's a totally false myth that they do well in small unheated and unfiltered bowls.
Here are a few of my betta babies!
Monkey (hates having his picture taken)
Kricket (was a recent rescue from petco, he's a fin eater and had a bad bacterial infection on his head, he's doing much better now)
Fraggle (he's just gorgeous)
JT (He was in a tank with Tiger barbs at the petstore, and they had eaten most of his fins off, they're growing back!)
Jumangi (Just to show you what good care can do, the first picture of Jumangi was the day I got him, and the second was 3 weeks later after just giving him clean water and proper care)
