2/25/02 - Animal Planet
I think it is so cool that the Animal Planet wants to feature you and your
Bettas in one of their series. Will you be able to post the date and
of the broadcast on you web site? I would love to watch it.
Keep of the good job

I bought a Betta from my local pet store and
unfortunately, he was quite
sick. I combed the web and happened upon your site. The concise and
user-friendly advice really helped. I bought everything on the
list and turned my kitchen into a virtual fish hospital -- from
sterilization to medication. My husband and friends thought that I was
crazy for spending so much time, money and energy on a $2.99 fish. I
HAD to do everything I could to try and save him though.
was too late for my poor store-bought friend.
However, the story does have a happy ending! I have since acquired a
betta (free of charge because the pet store felt so bad because of my
plight, monetary dedication and concern). This time, I knew EXACTLY
look for when picking him out. He has an awesome home (with carefully
crafted water conditions) thanks to your great site. He is very happy,
making bubble nests and greeting me in the morning and upon my return
Thanks for everything Faith and good luck with the new home!

I just wanted to thank you for all the info from your site (since I see
your tired of getting e-mail to all your categories). It's nice to see a
fellow musician from the L.A. area that has other things to do besides
I just got a Royal Blue Betta from some friends cause they thought I
needed a pet. :)
I read that they like *Peas*, well I eat next door to my home every day
and I had Broccoli (sp?) for lunch and I don't like it, so I brought it
home and gave Simon (Simon, *The Siamese Fighting Fish* that is) a tiny
*Sprig* of it and he just loved it !! I'm sure if it's not bad for him
at least he will get some vitamins from it (yes it was cooked). I think I
might just give him one every week or so. Also I heard they love Freeze
dried *Blood Worms* but he just looks at me like: DOH !!!. He does now
eat his Betta Bio Gold everyday.
Thanks for all your help.
hello, my name is nadia and I'm only 12. but i love bettas so much they're

rot, but I'm treating him and he seems to be getting better. anyway, i just

- Fan mail
Your site is just wonderful! I was giggling the whole time I was
every page, but still learning a lot. I want to get into the betta
breeding hobby because of my wonderful fish, Rex. I've had him for
year and I think he's just gorgeous. I don't know why veiltails went
of style! Anyway, since reading your site, I have a lot of work and
gathering of equipment to do before I can start - and I can't breed Rex!
Since you are now my betta Goddess, I will do as you say and buy good
stock before I start. I don't understand why you drill into your
to buy 2 pairs of what they want to breed and then don't sell your stock
that way, but dieties can do those sorts of things... :o)))
I'll be waiting impatiently for some of Gorgeous' line to be posted for
your newest subject and fan,
- great site
wanted to say that I have been trying to learn as much as possible about
bettas and breeding (for fun) and have viewed a lot of sited online, and I
have to say that your site is the coolest and most informative site I've
seen yet. You sound like a "cool" person and I plan on
checking out your site as much as possible for information. PLEASE,
keep up the great work.
Ps. I plan on purchasing some bettas from you in the near future.
You have some of the most beautiful bettas I have seen yet.

always turn to it for reference when I need help. So thanks a lot for
the help you have given my friend and I.
|06/30/02 - The Betta Vase
Faith you have saved the life of eight little finned friends in Kentucky.
It started with my sisters baby shower, she wanted me to make two betta
vases for decorating. So while at the store looking into one I saw the 'DO
NOT FEED' and being an animal lover grew concerned. I came home empty
handed and looked over the internet for a different answer and found your
site. After reading it I agreed that betta vases are inhumane, but my
sister was counting on me. After thought and paining the Betta Vase
Alternative was born. Two nice gallon bowls with colored marbles and
artificial plants placed on unfinished wooden trays that were used to hold
a beach like flower arrangement around the bowl. They were a big hit and
the two lovely red bettas Tenshii and Eiyu (Angel and Hero saved from
Walmart) found a good home with a care reference to your sight. As for me
I fell on love with the little guys and hated to give them away at the
shower but shortly after set up my own lovely little tanks for six little
friends of my own and saved them from the cruel destiny of a Walmart fish.
Treize, Millardio, Herro, Duo, Wufei, and Trowa thank you and so do I.
You deserve a hero's medal,
|6/30/02 - Thank You
The other day as I was walking through the mall, I saw the 2 most
beautiful creatures I have ever seen (besides my husband and children that
is). They were of course 2 male half moon bettas. I was instantly in love.
I bought 2 one gallon vases to put them in, some beautiful stones, and
have placed them next to each other on top of my entertainment center (I
invited just about half of my neighbors to see my beautiful new
But the one thing I DID NOT do was cover my vases. I didn't know that
bettas could jump. I also didn't know that they liked to rest "like
butterflies" as you so elegantly put it. When Fire (he's my red baby)
started going to the bottom after swimming at Ice (he's my blue baby) I
was becoming worried.
So I have 2 things to be grateful to you for. Because of you I now know to
cover their jars (which will save me from a great deal of tears from both
me and my oldest daughter LoL), and I know that they are ok. Make that 3
things. For having such a great, informative site. My thanks and my
blessings are with you.
bought my first
betta- my husband
claims I rescued it
as 75% of the fishes
on the shelf were
dead! It is
heartbreaking to see
the conditions in
pet stores for all
animals. I am
so grateful to your
site because it
helps me take care
of my little guy as
