    I think that bettas are beautiful and have one of the most distinctive and interesting personalities of freshwater fish. Like cichlids, they are on the more responsive side and can learn from experience. While they are all beautiful fish, I was wondering about opinions on which betta you felt was most beautiful.

    I love the halfmoon bettas. I think they are just the most elegant fish. But the super deltas are also stunning.

    I'm debating about getting another halfmoon, like the picture in my icon. He was so beautiful. They are difficult to keep and the larger they get, the more you really need a larger tank. What makes me incensed is the nonsense online about how bettas thrive in rice paddies and really only need very shallow and small amounts of water. People live in Beijing and New York City and I wouldn't say they thrive in 450 square foot apartments.
