I do love these Jose. Just a pity one aways has to keep them seperated.

I've never seen such before...it's beautiful and scary at the same time...evidently, it cannot be around other fish?

Terrific photo. Will it attack you if you put your hand in the tank, or does it just attack other fishies?

Have a great evening, JM!

Hi JM,

Beautiful!
I love the yellow colour. Great shot!

Best regards
Asta

Jacob, Bettas are supposed to be peaceful but the thing is males fight to death among them, that's why there can only be one per tank. On the other hand, you can have a tank full of females with no problems at all.

Life is unfair. Being an impressive Fighting Fish with no one to fight!

Reminds me of my doggie. She was very courageous as long as there was absolutely nothing dangerous in sight... ;)
