the cam is cool!
the cam, and the website, it has helped us out a lot. we only
have the one betta, "Omega" is his name, and he is
quite happy, in part thanx to your wonderful advice.
Hello! I just want to say that you come up with
great ideas for your website! I didn't really know that was
The first time I saw it, I was thinking
"Where's the sound?" "Oh, duh, BETTAS don't
make no sound." I'm really expecting soon to see you.
Love ya site and your bettacam! Perfect Work! ;D
- Camera works
used the web cam to see the red and white apache. the colors
were not faded at all. it was some real nice color to it.
thanks for making this sight so cool.
you're really cute.
Bettacam looks BEAUTIFUL - the Apache's color comes shining
through the monitor. :) I can see the nice
background you selected as well (in detail!). VERY
clear! I've been watching him zip back and forth and
he looks great!
Whatever you did - it was the way to go because compared to
my viewing experience before (where I had to play with the
controls a lot to get a half decent picture), it's like
going from an old black & white TV to a nice color flat
~ who put her "Evil Fin-Shredding Demon Monster"
Apache Female up to the screen to watch him, and sure
enough, she flared at him and tried to attack through the
side of her jar *sigh*. LOL She's a brute!
got in on your betta cam testing and I have never seen the
betta cam so perfect!
The Red of the male is just perfect, his body seams a little
(and I do mean little) washed out, but then again that might
just be the way he is. And the lighting is just perfect! Not
to much light, but not to dark either. :) The picture
doesn't even jump anymore, just nice and smooth. Almost like
I'm right there in the room watching him! :)
Whatever you're doing keep it up!!!!!!!!!!! :)
very happy viewer in Wisconsin.
cam looks great I see red betta with some white in fins
and head is that right colors? Rock behind I am
on dsl and seems to be real fish time lol thanks for the
site it is great
- bettatalk only gets better!
love the live web cam - great stress relief mid-work day,
especially when I'm home sick for my finned friends!!
website is great, I really learned a lot. Napoleon
is blowing lots of bubbles. I was worried about that
too. But like I said your website was filled with
all the things I was asking about.
you again for the e-mail

it! First time viewer-already it's a favorite!
02/15/04 - bettacam
I've loved seeing
Minimee and Giant on the BettaCam this week, just
a suggestion....how about a trio day, with Minimee,
a regular and Giant, side by side by side?
That would really show us the difference between
again for the BettaCam, I look forward each day to
see if it's up and what we get to see.
02/18/04 - famous in
Alaska FAITH !!
I am sending my copy of this sweet little
article about you and your interesting business
in the Anchorage Daily News. It will go out in
P.S. I love watching the Betta when I need a
sanity moment at work. They are great little
I'm just emailing to say that I absolutely love your betta cam!
My fish were unable to make the plane trip back to college with
me after winter break due to heightened airport security, so I
had to leave them home. I've really missed my babies and having
just bettas around in general. They're great stress
relief! Anyways, every once in a while I load up your betta cam
and watch your fishies swim about and do their thing and it
brightens my day :)
So thanks a bunch for setting such a neat thing up!
|Just wanted to let you know- that a couple of co-
workers and I really enjoy your betta cam. We all have at least one tank on our desks, but it is also
fun to watch yours too!!! Good work!
there, just wanted to let you know I enjoyed watching this
morning the "Betta Show". Thanks a lot Faith,
I really love your web site! Love Those Bettas!
First let me just say that your betta cam is AWESOME!!!! I have
it on almost all the time at work. People thing I'm crazy to
have the betta cam on when I already have 6 bettas on my desk,
but I love watching all the different bettas you put up there.
The new lighting is great! I think that this is a much better
way to view the bettas. It seems to show off their own color
more. And it helps that they seem to like it better too.
Thanks for making such a great site. I visit almost every
Can you tell that I'm just a little bit addicted???? LOLOL
Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
Bettacam rocks i wish my bettas could be on the show...
Faith, just peeked into watch your bettas this morning.
I believe it is a change for the better, not only for the
bettas, but I find it easier on my eyes also! I have 6
bettas but I still enjoy watching yours. Someday I plan
on buying a betta or two from you, but don't tell mine, it
would hurt their little feelings. I can actually pet one
of mine, he is so cute! Have a great day, Tish
love your cam, I check it out every other day to see who is
new! Thanks so much
think the fish are responding a lot better to the softer light.
Are you going to be breeding any of these fish? That would
make for a cool web cam shot. I love your site! I think it
would be neat for us to see how the bettas actually do it.
I have never bred bettas, but would like to this summer. I
think for me to see you do it would help educate me on what I
should do. Keep up the good work-
Betta cam is really cool! My betta, Storm, sit in
his tank on my desk so he sees everything on my PC.
When I had the cam on, he Swam to the closes corner of
the tank to see the other betas swimming around on the
PC. He Flared bout 20 times and started moving his mouth
alot. I dunno f he was enjoying it or Was really pissed
off =) well Good Job on the betta cam. I love it
and hopefully storm likes it too
I was watching your closeup of the nest, at first nothing
was there then all of a sudden, 2 of the babies shot back up
into the nest! I can see them so much better than I
can my own fry when they were still wigglers like this!
My eyes just aren't as good as your camera lens, Lol.
My own babies were so tiny they were just specs to my naked
eyes, but your camera really does a good job at magnifying
them. Now I know what my little guys and gals looked
like, Lol (I had my first successful spawn about 3 weeks
ago, they turned 3 weeks old on Wednesday, they are from a
beutiful sibling pair of Turquoise, the male is a HM, I
can't wait to see how the babies turn out).
for the bettacam and the good job getting a spawn live, it's
also very cool to see you so excited about it all :)
I just wanted to let you know how much I'm enjoying the live
spawn you've been working so hard to bring us betta fans.
I was watching earlier today, and noticed that the pair looked
quite friendly ;). When I checked in later, they were
actually spawning. It was very exciting, and I definitely
look forward to seeing the fry develop. I wish the daddy
good luck with the joys of parenthood.
An avid bettatalk fan,
I sat at work almost all day glued to the betta cam - much to my
manager's dismay, I'm sure :) Anyway, I was quietly
cheering and gasping and ducking and "swimming" in my
seat at work watching it all happen! My co-workers in
cubicle land surely think I'm insane. I can't wait to look
again today and see the nest and eggs - you rock Faith! I
only hope my manager can appreciate it as well, LOL :))
Was that exciting or what?????
I was glued to the cam yesterday and I'd watch her come out
and then get chased off. Then at around noon (your time) I
I saw a wrap but I couldn't quite tell. But as time went on when
check back in the "wraps" were more and more obvious
THE EGGS started dropping!!!!
I was amazed!
Thanks for sharing......I'm finding it difficult to watch today
want to tell him to leave it alone! It's actually making me
how's that for BETTASTUPID????
Great job Faith, you gotta be proud.
Also.....thanks for the Easter message. It is ALL ABOUT HIM!
a good dad he is! I can see him spitting those eggs back
into the nest! This is a wonderful experience.
Thank you Faith for sharing that!
I had hoped last week to catch the two you had on camera last
"mate".....but missed it. I've only had my Betta
about 2 months so I'm
still a "newbie". I know there isn't anyway I'd
be able to handle breeding
him, but really thought it was cool that you tried to get it on
I love your website and have recommended it to everybody I know.
saved many a Betta from vases after having people take a look at
Keep up the great work! And believe me, when it's warmer
I plan to purchase one of your babies!
that macro lens is great! It's going to be awesome
when/if the eggs start to hatch and we'll be able to see the
little wigglers, hehe. I can't wait :)
I just LOVE your site, and I've just had the privilege of
watching the spawn happening via live cam - all the way over
here in South Africa! So your bettas are international now!
so much for the opportunity to see that, and keep it going!
do hope your taking a video of this spawning process! I'd love
a copy!! *s i have a betta female that looks just like the one
being spawned now and My husband is interested in someday
you SO much for the live web cam I've realy realy enjoyed it!
found your site when I found out my sweet little male Ermine
(a little lavender I fell in love with at the local
specialty fish shop) was feeling under the weather and I
was searching for breeders tips on how to make him feel
better. Your illnesses page was very informative and
made me realize that my other male, Skittles, was a tad on the
overfed side. I was following the instructions on the
bottle of pellets to feed him but obviously I was feeding the
little porker too much.
may have saved the life of both of my darling little boys and
I am very grateful. :) I hope by following your tips I
can make them happier and healthier tips. (And I will
make sure I or none of my friends ever buy those betta/plant
combos. I had no idea!)
also saw the webcam of your fish spawning and wow! You
have quite the dedicated male. :) When I tuned in he was
carrying the eggs to the bubble nest and was just plugging
along happy as can be. All of your fish have absolutely
beautiful colorations and my salivary glands will never
forgive you. ^_~
agian and good luck with your breeding!
really like your new cams. My betta Fred passed away
yesterday. He was my work buddy. I was kinda of
sad this morning coming in and seeing an empty spot where his
tank use to be.
was at your site to learn about sanitizing the tank and stuff
after a fish dies and found the betta cam link. Now I
can see a live betta at work until I am ready to bring a new
work buddy into my life.
found your website so wonderful, at least I could erase all
the earlier beliefs about caring and stuff.
like the bettacam! I think that it's great. I started watching
it this afternoon(morning at you) and I think that male is
simply beautiful, my betta is like half of him in size LOL.
I'm very curious about how it will end, I hope I will be
able to catch them ;)
it. I just thought I'd drop a mail :) Keep up the good work!
