If you have seen "dragonscale" bettas at petsmart...yeah. They are not really dragons. Those are plakats, most not even remotely halfmoon. Occasionally there will be a real one, but most are not. ...

I see a HUGE difference. The animal can't get out, there is no air exchange, there is no feeding. Those things are sealed. A lot of dogs even seem to enjoy those carriers! Not all do, but a lot...

Good advice. That's what I do also if I end up with a filter that isn't adjustable. Your betta will appreciate it!

Also, your betta will love a ten gallon with live plants! I really do agree...

Feeding a high quality pellet is hardly the same as feeding sub par dog or cat food. Low quality pellets are a different matter entirely. I don't believe anyone is trying to bully you into...

Added to that, if you go to a betta only forum, most people actually DO recommend pellets. Usually bettas that have issues with pellets is caused by user error and NOT the fish food.

I personally feed pellets. It is no more likely to cause constipation or bloating then flake is. However, you don't need to feed much. Over feeding is the top cause of food related problems, not...

+1 While the rice patties cover huge areas, the water is shallow and full of plants to hide around and under. They love floating plants!

Honestly, that tank isn't really big enough for two bettas. Generally 2.5 is the min recommended for one betta. I definitely wouldn't add anything else.

These guys can jump pretty high, it's possible she jumped your divider. When i had divided tanks, I kept the water level much lower them I would have otherwise. I hope she heals up well for you!

Bettas DO require an air space to breathe. If the water is oxygenated enough, they may not need to do this often and they can survive, but it is not ideal.

Trust me, Laura is right. Petco's "quality" fish are just as mass bred as the veils. Aside from that, most of the halfmoons you see there are actually Deltas. These fish are no higher quality,...
