    I love these fish. They can live outside of water for a long time too, they just need to stay wet. They are also one of the only fish that don't need an actual aquarium to be healthy. That is why you see so many living is vases, though they don't eat the plants you plug them with so make sure to feed them.

    Lets hear all the people who love bettas.

    I had a nice Yellow crown tail betta with a tail shaped like this

    Bloody it was on the front of its chest
    and long it barked at the father of magic;
    on rode Odin, the road resounded,
    he approached the high hall of Hel.

    That would be cool. The yellow ones I see get a washed out color sometimes though.

    I work at a pet store at the moment and I'm always watching for one to come in with an almost emerald color, but no luck yet.

    It was just a pretty easter yellow =) I like the ones that normally have a white body with colored fins.

    Aye, it's nice. A lot of times if you want to find a emerald colored betta they are more green and look black without light so it's best to shine a flashlight directly on them to check.

    I put a Betta in a tank with other fish I breed like guppies and they get along fine. A lot of people say they will kill any fish :P

    They actually get along with quite a few fish, but some will attack others. It depends on the fish. We used to keep our king bettas in with other fish (not together though).

    I kept them together at the time, had an albino then, it just floated along where ever it pleased, it liked the plants. I keep having to edit, my grammar isn't it's best right now.

    I always loved the purple ones. You never see a Betta with the same shade or mixture of purple twice.

    The most colorful bettas are male, and their colors are brightest when they can see another male (in separate bowls) - it's an aggression/competition thing.

    So, if you want them to keep their bright colors, get at least two.
