- You are INCREDIBLE !!!!
I bred Bettas in Puerto Rico back in the late 60's and 70's. It's much
easier in warm weather. Your tank setup, super web site, and positive
attitude, sets you apart from anyone I've even heard of. (your cute looks
don't hurt you either.)
I hope to order from you soon, as soon as I get off my duff and get ready
get back into the hobby.
Thanks for a very informative site.
God Bless !!

you very much for your valuable time. I know you don't have much. People like you make the world go round!
I just want to say you have a great website
for new betta owners. They are such beautiful fish, but there is a
lot of important information to know about them...and I learned
everything I needed to know from your website...Thank you so much for
taking time out of your busy schedule to think about helping others.

betta madness out of me! LOL! I thank you for lot's and lot's of
information Your site gave me a lot of information! THANK YOU!
- Very Nice Site! No
Follow up needed!!!!
I found you site via a search engine. I bought a beta from Wal-mart to do
the plant in the vase thing, I think the plant is too big and george would
like more space so I am going to get a small plant for him to play with.
I was concerned about the bubbles at the top of the water, I now know that
george is health! THANKS for that info!!! I am going to start
him on shrimp and freezed dried food. I don't think these flakes are
cutting it. He is eating some of the flakes and spitting out the rest that
in turn is resting in the bottom of the vase. THANKS FOR THE INFO!!!!
Thanks to you,....
my Betta is alive now because of the great info on your site.
Unfortunately, I fell victim to the Betta in the Bowl with the plant
I thought it would be a nice addition to my office, however because I
believed that he didn't need food and only a 50% water change here and
there, my poor little guy came down with either a bacteria or fungal (or
One day I came in to my office and I thought he was dead- he was at the
kind of listing to the side and when I tapped his bowl, he was able to
muster up some energy to move his fins a little bit to show me that he was
alive. Well, after some intense research on the net and with the
finding your site- as well as others within the webring, I was both
disgusted with the place I bought my little finned friend-Farfel- and
relieved to know that there was treatment. I remembered reading that
respond well to treatment, the web site said-"don't give up!"
I went to the
local pet store and they said that it was a hopeless case, but I just
couldn't give up on the little fella with him waving his little fins at
breathing rapidly- he was telling me that he had a lot of life in him yet.
So, I didn't listen to the person in the pet store, I bought Bettamax, and
after about 2 weeks of treatment, he appears to be recovering quite well
(cross your fins!). I think that unfortunately, he will be
to the severity of his condition before he got the treatment, however he
swims happily about his bowl and is eating like a little piggy again-
goodness. I have to crush his Bettagold pellets to make it easier
to eat, he was not able to suck down the whole pellet, and he was getting
frustrated that I crushed one pellet and he gobbled it up so, I've been
doing that since and he seems to really like it.
So, I want to express my heart-felt thanks to you and the Betta community
for helping to save my little Farfel. He is quite interactive and
handsome, even his blemishes make him more endearing! Everyone
office thought that I was a little crazy buying the medicine and hovering
over him every day, but now they are very happy to see Farfel enjoying his
new lease on life!

Thank you Faith for such an
all inclusive informative web site. I've been following your site for a
year now, and enjoy the eye candy your photos provide.
It is also great to know
that at least one other person understands the exhausting process of
changing betta jars! I am the aquatic specialist at a Petco (where
some of your other fans may have bought fish), and it takes the
better part of my shift to keep 150 to 200 bettas a week in their best
condition with water changes and feedings (not to mention my other fishy
and reptiles friends)! So if your local Petco aquatic specialist looks a
little frazzled, this is why ;-)! I thought I was truly alone
with having to surmount this sometimes daunting task! My co-workers
actually laugh at me because I care enough to do this for "just
Your site has been great
with helping me cope with betta health issues so I can provide proper
treatment, and make sure my customers go home with a happy and healthy
buddy. Nothing makes me sadder than to have somebody return to the store
with a sick or dead betta.
Thank you very much, Cole
