- Your picture...
friend of mine just got me a betta and I happened to come
across your website. I saw your picture (in black and white)
next to a description of you, and I just wanted to let you
know that you are gorgeous!
a former Marine Officer, I gotta say I love the style of
your web site. Not a lot of questions left to the
imagination on where you stand on a given issue.... Keep it
went over your site, which I find absolutely charming.
bought my first Betta few days ago, but sadly he died. I
decided to find out more about bettas before getting
another one and found your site.
energy is so positive that it even transforms through the
cable computer lines. You made me want to explore more
about these wonderful fishes and treat them with respect.
I do have gold fish but they are no comparison to bettas.
vous remercie pour votre dédicacion!
is such a wonderful website! I have recently been
searching for the perfect new pet, and had no idea it was
bettas until I stumbled across this website. I read
the information given about caring for bettas last night,
and went out and bought 2 female bettas today! They
are the coolest, most vibrant fish that I have seen!
I am sure that I will be visitng your website frequently-
thank you for all the information that helps bettas live a

have just stumbled onto your Betta website and I wanted to
thank you so much for all of the wonderful information.
Although I have long admired the betta's beauty and grace
for a long time, I have not until recently, owned one.
There were so many questions I had about them which were
answered in your site. I have looked for information
on various sites, and your website was by far the best

IDIOTIC SETUP #4
a Betta for Christmas.. it was in a Lil bowl with a bamboo
plant stuck through the top... I was told as you know.. not
to feed the poor Lil Betta or clean the water...
the first day I had some serious questions... This fish
doesn't look like a fish that eats algae and those roots are
too hard to come off without teeth...
I went on a search... and thankfully I happened up on your
website now everyone I know has been enlightened about
the sad plight of Bamboo Bowl Bettas....
Faith.. couldn't have done it without you!
I was reading the FAQ page and saw the answer
to: 'how to stop betta abuse question"...I'm on a mission
let me tell you! My best friend works at our local petco and as
I learn more and more about bettas so does he (i never stop
spouting betta info, I think i'm mentally ill:) ...he was
was I, about the poor conditions in his store, and he has since
taken over as the betta manager... i came in and gave betta 101
to the staff one Sun. and I now have employees calling me on my
cell phone asking questions for costumers, or calling me in if
they think one of the fish is having a
problem... thanks to you and your site in the last 2 months
there have only been 2 betta deaths...usually they were having
2-3 a week!!! and they are selling at least a betta a day
(people like clean healthy fish) so its not so over crowded.
So... I'll be off to other stores, now that i know I'm not
the only one fighting for the little ones. Thanks again for all
the info...the little guys thank you too.
P.S. we also tell anyone who buys a betta or who has questions
to visit bettatalk...There's a surprise! :)
Great job on the site!
I was bored at work and was surfing the web when I stumbled into
your bettatalk website. I am most impressed and super excited
with this site.
Currently, I own a betta (the common one found at Petsmart) I
call him Rainbow and he has been with me for more than 1 year.
He still looks pretty healthy so I guess I'm doing a good job
with him. I have Rainbow in a 1 gal tank and when my fiance
bought a 20 gal tank for his flowerhorn I had
Rainbow transferred in the 20 gal tank for a few days before the
other fish came. His color improved a great deal. He actually
looks brighter than when I first bought him.
I was quite disappointed with the variety found in Utah (where
I'm staying/studying). I come from Singapore which is pretty
well known for its fishes. Back home I did have a halfmoon betta
and he was much more aggressive than Rainbow. In fact the bettas
that I've seen here are on the
verge of death or already dead at the stores.
It is sad to see how the corporation treat their fishes. It is
pretty disturbing actually. Anyway to end of, you can be very
sure that I will be an ardent visitor to your site. Hopefully I
would be able to order a betta or two from you in the future.
01/03/04 - Good morning,
your site and visit it quite often. It has become an invaluable
resource regarding care, health issues, etc.
of February 2003, I have become a one person betta rescue.
I started with two pitiful bettas that were stuck in those
tiny cups at Wal Mart. I now have 7, and plan on taking
on two more. 5 of them are in their very own
aquariums (with a minimum of 8 gallons). Each has live
plants, filtration, heater, etc. The other two are each
in one gallon containers with live plants, etc. They
appear to be happy as clams, as they are blowing bubbles all
$3.00 rescues have cost me a fortune, but it is so very worth
it. I have tried to rescue the ugliest fish that were in
the most dire of straits, assuming that they would not be
purchased and eventually die. 7 fish later they are all
doing swimmingly. What is so great is that these
ugly duckling fish have blossomed into gorgeous ones-all
because someone took the time to give them a chance.
again for you excellent site. I would have been unable
to keep these fish alive and thriving if it were not for your
website. I have shared it with other fish enthusiasts.
have no intention of ever becoming a breeder.........just
knowing that 7 "throw away" bettas are living a
better life is more than rewarding enough for me.
