They all have such interesting colors! That's cool. Do they have their own personalities too? Sorry I'm not much of a fish person

I had a Betta named Enzo for 4 years. He died 3 months ago. Poor guy. He didn't even show any signs. He wasn't quite as beautiful as your guys...he was just a garden variety Wal-Mart Betta...but he was very personable. He loved his food in the morning!

Casanova is pretty! I've never seen silver tipped like that!

They are very pretty!! I always thought breeding fish would be an interesting job lol. Do you get lots of babies each time? (I don't know anything about fish breeding hah!)

I guess I don't know how to keep a beta... I have had 2 and gave up on them. I killed them both within about 3 months, I thought I had better give up trying to keep one rather than go through them so fast!!!

You have an amazing set up!!! I've never seen so many tanks and beta's in one spot before.

Tell us more!!! lol... I know nothing about them and you have BEAUTIFUL ones!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I had fish too while in University. I in-fact had red crabs too. The problem with bettas are they are too hot headed when placed with others. They look nice and usually kept alone.

At least that's what I heard .

I had small tiny colorful fish (forgot their names now but there were loads of them), I had algae eater fish (which was known as fish tank cleaner - it made my tank dirtier then before!!) and I had 2 gold fish with 2 red crabs. I remember I spent more than 100 on everything when bought.

It was very hard to keep them, I was lucky to have friends who were happily willing to clean the tank for me . Unfortunately all died except the Gold fish which later my mum gave it away because of it's share size (tank was getting small for a big fish!).
