It's not recommended to keep males and females together. If you wanted to divide the tank it would be possible, but keeping them together without a divider often results in one beating up the other. These fish were originally bred for aggressive nature and that still holds true today. If you want to keep males and females together you should look at the wild Betta species. Some have almost the same body shape but half of the attitude.

And now to introduce my bettas. They hold a special place in my heart because that tank was the first I experimented with plants in.


My giant HMPK. He's a marble and now looks like this:



And my platinum HMPK
